Soccer – Boys Varsity – Two ties and one more week of play before NCS!

On Wednesday, Acalanes tied a strong Alhambra team 2-2 at home (DFAL).

After the break, Alhambra took control of the game and scored twice to take the lead.

Varsity Boys Soccer- With a tie & a win, the Dons are still comfortably on top of the DFAL!

On Wednesday, the Dons were hosting defending NCS champion Campolindo and delivered a solid performance for a final score of 1-1. Junior Dan Glascock scored his 12th goal of the season (tied with senior Austin DeBack) on an assist from senior Aidan Maguire (his 10th of the season and best of the team). But the hero of the game was junior GK Eric Rogstad who brilliantly saved a penalty kick (his 3rd in a row!!!) at the beginning of the game and made some crucial saves along the way. With the tie, the Dons accomplished their goal of maintaining their 5-point lead on Campo but will have to wait until NCS to have a chance to beat Campo this year after two 1-1 ties.
