From that moment on, the Dons didn’t stop to push forward, forcing the opposing defenders to score twice in their own net, on each side of the half. Final score: 2-1 in favor of Acalanes.

Dec 3 – Two hard-fought ties to end the Winter Soccer Classic!

After two easy wins earlier in the week, the Acalanes Dons Soccer Team ended this year’s tournament with two ties, first on Thursday vs Antioch (1-1), then again on Saturday vs Albany (2-2). In the first game, Acalanes dominated, had a lot of chances to score but couldn’t beat an excellent goalkeeper in the visiting ranks. The deliverance finally came in the 59 minutes with a well-taken penalty kick from sophomore Max Mirner. Unfortunately, that advantage was short-lived and 3 minutes later, Antioch was also awarded a penalty kick and tied the game. The score would not change.
