Jan 30 – Acalanes Dons Squeak By Dougherty Valley to Stay Undefeated in Boys Soccer

The Acalanes men’s soccer team escaped with a 1-0 win over Dougherty Valley on Wednesday night in San Ramon.  The Dougherty Valley goalkeeper was in top form, stopping a number of great Acalanes scoring chances. It was not until the 64th minute that Acalanes was able to take the lead.

In a scramble in front of the Dougherty Valley net a Dan Glascock shot was blocked but Max Mirner grabbed the rebound to score the game’s only goal.

The Dons needed to play tough team defense against a plucky Dougherty Valley team all the way to the final whistle. Luke Van Oss was named Man of the Match for his excellent defensive effort.  The Soccer Dons host Dublin on Friday night at 6:15 pm. The Dons also have their final regular season home game on Monday night against Hayward.  The Monday night game is Senior Night.
