Boys Soccer Advances to NCS Championship on Saturday

If you were not there, you missed the epic battle in the NCS semifinal game.  It was everything that was expected as the #2 seeded boys soccer team battled #3 seeded Richmond HS into overtime.  Drew Wondolowski scored an incredible goal in the first half.  With his back to the net, he kicked the ball over his head, over the goalkeeper and into the far corner of the goal. Richmond would not go down quietly.  They evened the score in the second half to force overtime. The first overtime ended with no score.  With four minutes left in the second overtime, Bryan Bamford fed Gabe Singer for the winning goal that propels the Dons into the NCS Championship game.

Chris Rogers and Drew Wondolowski were named “Men of the Match.”  As witnessed all season, goalkeeper Luke Denham made several outstanding saves and was buoyed by strong defensive play by the entire team.

Acalanes will host Montgomery HS for the NCS Div II Championship Saturday at 7:00.
