Mar 25 – No “Bones” about it – Dons Boys LAX win in overtime!

Friday night the Boys Lax team travelled to Walnut Creek to play Las Lomas in a league match up. It was an exciting game with the Dons appearing a bit sleepy from their ‘bye’ earlier in the week.

A terrific pass from Leo Barakos to Nathan Lee put the first goal up for the Dons which ended the 1st quarter tied at 1 to 1. The 2nd quarter was also tight with a goal by Fynn Chorak with a Brian Maiken assist and a goal by Nathan Brickman to end the 2nd quarter with a tie gme at 3 to 3. The 3rd quarter saw a goal from Fynn Chorak, but Las Lomas was able to sneak 2 in which brought the score going in to the 4th quarter at Acalanes 4 to Las Lomas 5. But, Michael Bone stole the show in the 4th quarter and scored 2 goals for the Dons with an assist to Jack Thoren for the 3rd goal of the quarter! Las Lomas also put up 2 goals in the 4th quarter which resulted in a tie game at 7 to 7 and the second sudden death overtime game in a row for the Dons.

It was certainly Michael Bone’s night and he didn’t disappoint! The Dons won the overtime faceoff on a Las Lomas penalty which allowed the Dons to set up a great play and a pass from Jack Thoren to Michael Bone for the game winning goal (and also a “hat trick” for Michael). Final score Acalanes 7 to Las Lomas 6.
