May 5 – Boys JV Lacrosse: May The Force Be With You

The 2017 DVAL Champion men’s lacrosse team completed a perfect undefeated DVAL season schedule defeating Northgate 14-2 on Friday Night.

A strong defensive effort was put in by all positions, and the ball seemed to have spent more time on the carpet than in the sticks of Northgate ball handlers as the Dons forced ground ball after ground ball. The game started with Carson “Mr. Coast to Coast (C2C)” Burill forced two ground balls behind the Dons net. Leo Cohen was dictating the direction Northgate attack men could travel with his long pole. C2C Burill would then do what he does best, pick up a ground ball, go C2C and hit Renn Standberg who scored for the 1-0 lead. Tucker Loughran-Smith (pronounced Lock Ran Smith, not Smythe) brought the ball from behind the net and assisted Standberg who scored for the 2-0 lead. Nick Karr fired from 15 yards out, 3-0. Burill and Cohen forced ground ball and Standberg got the ball to Loughran-Smith 4-0. C2C Burill picked up a ground ball went C2C to Standberg to Loughran-Smith 5-0. Loughran-Smith brought the ball out from behind the net to Standberg to close the quarter out 6-0.

Oliver “Stingy” Rotundo started the 2nd quarter with a great save only to follow up with another save. Charlie Bettencourt forced a ground ball and on the offensive side of the field, Loughran-Smith brought the ball from behind the net, shot and scored, 7-0. Robert Montoya forced a ground ball which was picked up by C2C Burill to Loughran-Smith to Standberg, 8-0. Montoya forced another ground ball followed by a Ben Clark forced ground ball and a save by Stingy Rotundo. The Dons were playing two men down but forced ground balls by Cohen and Standberg help to kill the penalty unharmed. 1 minute before the half Northgate was finally able to get screaming fast ball past Stingy Rotundo, Yet the Dons wouldn’t go away quietly, with 10 seconds left, Loughran-Smith from behind the net and a 9-1 half time lead.

I’m not sure what they drank at half time but the Dons came out on fire in the 3rd. Cohen and Michael Tarentief would force ground balls and after passing the ball around the net Standberg found the upper right corner of the net from the left side of the field, 10-1. An opportunity for Northgate was thwarted by a big hit from C2C Burill and a Stingy Rotundo save. Northgate then got their final goal of the night, 10-2. A C2C Burill forced ground ball was picked up by Matt “Speedy” Hess at the net line. Speedy Hess would go C2C to get the ball to Standberg on the wing who hit Loughran-Smith in front of the goal and found an open Montoya who shot and scored, 11-2. 3 saves by Stingy Rotundo was only interrupted by a Wilhelm Schueler forced ground ball.

Loughran-Smith started the 4th with a shot from 15 yards out for the 12-2 lead. Stingy Rotundo with a save and Cohen with a forced ground ball followed by Clark getting the ball to Tarentief who to Brooks Thibault who scored, 13-2. Speedy Hess forced a ground ball and Schueler got the ball to Noah Elze who threw it across the field to Thibault who scored the final Dons goal, 14-2. June Jung forced a ground ball and the Dons killed a penalty with forced ground balls by Cole Schoenheide and Jung completed the perfect undefeated DVAL schedule and the 2017 DVAL Championship.

May 2 – Boys JV Lacrosse Championship

The men’s JV Lacrosse team wrapped up the DAL Championship Tuesday night with a decisive 11-2 victory over rival Campolindo.

The game was never in doubt as Renn Standberg used a spin move early in the first for a quick 1-0 lead.  The defense played tough with Carson Burill and Cole Schoenheide creating ground balls.  Later in the first Standberg would assist Tucker Loughran-Smith and a 2-0 to close the first.

In the 2nd, Nick Karr would pick up a ground ball and score for a 3-0 lead.  The Dons’ passing was strong and off the faceoff Karr passed to Loughran-Smith who fed Standberg for a 4-0 lead. Riley Ketchum would then hit Standberg who repaid Loughran-Smith for a 5-0 lead at which they would take into halftime.

40 seconds into the 3rd Loughran-Smith would utilize the spin move for a 6-0 lead.  Loughran-Smith then brought the ball from behind the net for a 7-0 lead. Burill better known as Mr. Coast to Coast, picked up a ground ball at the net line, drive to the Campolindo 40, pass to Loughran-Smith who fed Standberg for the 8-0 lead. Leo Cohen had an intimidating interception that seemed to take all the spirit out of the Campolindo sideline.  Standberg driving through a stick to the head that was pushing his head back to score for a 9-0 lead.  With the sun in his eyes and 5 seconds left in 3rd, Campolindo snuck one past goalie Oliver Rotundo. The stingy goalie was seeking his second shutout game of the season.  The 3rd qtr ended with a 9-1 lead.

In the 4th Standberg would score for a 10-1 lead.  Late in the 4th as the benches emptied Campolindo scored their final goal. With 1 minute left, Mr. Coast to Coast Burill would pick up a ground ball, go the distance and dish to Standberg for an 11-2 victory and the DAL Championship.

The men’s JV lacrosse team pulled out a thrilling OT win at Piedmont to improve to 3-0.

Piedmont took an early 3-0 lead in the first quarter.  A very fast team, Piedmont scored mostly on fast breaks where they had numbers.  In the second quarter each team scored a goal and Piedmont led 4-1 at halftime.

In the second half, Acalanes scored 3 unanswered goals and trailed 5-6 in the final minutes.  With 30 seconds to go, Jefferey Novak scrambled around right on the crease and squeezed in a goal to tie the game and send it to OT.

Piedmont won the first face off but The Dons badgering defense made them cough it up and led to a fast break.  Solid goalie play by Piedmont saved a wide open shot forcing the Acalanes defense to hold again.  On the next possession, The Dons offense settled and moved the ball around. Riley Ketcham found Renn Strandberg on a cut across the middle for the game winner!

The men showed a great deal of determination despite being down by 3 goals at half.  They look to keep their undefeated streak going this Tuesday at home vs. College Park at 5:30 pm.

May 13 – Boys Lacrosse Falls in Double Overtime in NCS Quarterfinals

The Don’s Lacrosse Team falls in Double Overtime in the NCS Quarterfinals.

The Dons travelled to Kezar Stadium on Friday afternoon to face University High School in the NCS Quarterfinals. The Dons started out strong with Colin Jeffries scoring the first 2 goals of the game. University scored one but Michael Bone answered back with a goal of his own. Just seconds before the end of the first quarter, University put one more on the board to end the quarter Dons 3 – University 2. The 2nd quarter was very evenly matched with Don goals coming from Nathan Brickman and Colin Jeffries, but each goal was answered back with University goals. Score at halftime was Dons 5 to University 4. The 3rd quarter was a game of ball possession which was evenly distributed between both teams. Despite several attempts, the Dons were unsuccessful in getting the ball past the goalie. University was able to land one in the net which made it a tie game at the end of the 3rd quarter at 5 to 5. With great efforts, neither team was able to score in the 4th quarter and the game ended in a 5 to 5 tie.

Attempts to score were made by both teams in the first sudden death overtime, but great stops by both the University goalie and our own Parker Henderson ended the first 4 minute OT at 5 to 5. With 4 more minutes on the clock, the Dons once again had opportunity and made attempts, but were unable to finish allowing University one final possession and a time out with 1:34 remaining on the clock. University set up their play and successfully planted one in the net with just over a minute left. Game over –  Dons 5 to University 6.

Our Dons played with heart! Despite several injuries this week the team rallied, younger players stepped up and no one ever backed down. Best wishes for speedy recoveries to Leo Barakos, Joey Gladden, Glenn Johnston and Nate Welcomer. High fives to Glenn Johnston who played his final high school lacrosse game with a cast on his arm.

Highlights:
Colin Jeffries with 3 goals, Michael Bone with 1 goal and 1 assist and Nathan Brickman with 1 goal, Grant Jackson with 1 assist and 1 forced turnover. Defensively, Josh Baginski had 2 forced turnovers and 3 ground balls, Brian Maiken had 2 forced turnovers and 2 ground balls and Glenn Johnston had 2 forced turnovers.

Goalie Parker Henderson had 10 saves!

It’s been tremendous fun to be part of the Acalanes’ Lacrosse family the past 4 years. Best wishes to the graduating Seniors – looking forward to seeing you all return for the Alumni game next year.

With so many talented young players on the team, the future looks very bright for the Don’s Lacrosse Team!

For my final time… “GO DONS!”

Apr 26 – Boys Lacrosse Finish Off Las Lomas with a Bang!

The Don’s Lacrosse Team hosted Las Lomas on Tuesday night and finished with a bang!

Las Lomas scored the first goal of the night in their first possession. But Grant Jackson answered back by scoring the next goal. Leo Barakos and Michael Bone also scored in the first quarter with one more put on the scoreboard by LL. Score at the end of 1st quarter was Dons 3 to LL 2. Fynn Chorak had a beautiful pass to Nathan Lee for a goal and Nathan Brickman sent one to Jack Thoren for another goal. Score at halftime Dons 5 to Las Lomas 4. Considering that the last match up of these two teams ended in a tie and a Don’s win in overtime, many were wondering at halftime if this game was going to be a repeat.

However, the Dons came back hot after the halftime break and scored 4 unanswered goals in the 3rd quarter and 1 more unanswered goal in the 4th quarter shutting down the Knights completely in the 2nd half. Matty Mariani was unstoppable at face-off winning 11 takes all together and every take in the 2nd half. Jake Landry, Nathan Lee, Nathan Brickman, Jack Thoren and Luke Olson each had goals in the 2nd half. Final score Dons 10 to Los Lomas 4.

Defensively, Glenn Johnston and Brian Maiken dominated with 4 forced turnovers each. Maiken successfully recovered 6 ground balls. Fynn Chorak also recovered 6 ground balls.

Goalie Nate Welcomer had 5 saves.

Offensive summary:
Nathan Lee had 2 goals and 1 assist, Jack Thoren had 2 goals, Nathan Brickman had 1 goal and 2 assists, Leo Barakos, Grant Jackson, Jake Landry, Luke Olson, Michael Bone each had 1 goal. Fynn Chorak had 1 assist.

Apr 19 – Campo breaks Acalanes Boys Lacrosse Winning Streak

Tuesday night brought a heartbreaking loss to the Dons as they faced Campolindo in the 2nd matchup this season. The Dons had not lost to Campo since 2005, winning 20 times against their rival over the years. But the Don’s fell short on Tuesday night…

Matt Mariani
Click on image to buy game photos

Campolindo took control of the game early by scoring the first goal of the game. But Acalanes answered back time after time in the first quarter. Grant Jackson, Leo Barakos and Michael Bone each scored in the first quarter only falling one behind the Cougars. Score to start the 2nd quarter was Acalanes 3 to Campo 4. Nathan Brickman scored the Don’s lone goal in the 2nd quarter temporarily tying the game, but Campo scored 1 as well bringing the score at halftime to Acalanes 4 to Campo 5. The Dons outscored the Cougars in the 3rd quarter as Michael Bone and Jack Thoren both fired one in the net. The 4th quarter started with a tie game at 6 to 6. But Campo came out strong in the 4th quarter and managed to win the face-offs and possess the ball the majority of the time only allowing 1 goal by Nathan Brickman and scoring 5 of their own. Final score Acalanes 7 to Campo 11.

Highlights:
Michael Bone 2 goals and 1 assist, Nathan Brickman 2 goals, Jack Thoren 1 goal and 1 assist, Grant Jackson and Leo Barakos 1 goal each.

Goalie Nate Welcomer had 12 saves.

Defensively, Glenn Johnston was a tank who forced 3 Campo turnovers and recovered 3 ground balls. Joey Gladden forced 1 turnover and recovered 6 ground balls and Brian Maiken was instrumental in clearing the ball.

Although Acalanes and Campolindo currently have the same DFAL record, DFAL rules state that Campo is currently ahead of Acalanes in the race for the league title. Both teams have 4 more league games to play before the end of the season and will possibly meet again in the NCS playoffs.

Go Dons!!

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.

Mar 18 – Boys LAX Continues Streak Against Campo!

The Dons’ Lax team hosted Campolindo on Friday for a special evening in which they honored former Acalanes’ player and coach, Matt Lynn. Despite the longstanding rivalry between the teams and in the spirit of community, all players participated in honoring Matt by donning colorful socks! Thank you for all of those who came and participated in the memorable evening.

“Nail-biter” would be an understatement! The game was competitive from the first whistle with the Dons and the Cougars battling hard for every ball, every clear and every stop. At the end of the first 12 minutes of play, the score was 0 to 0. Both teams were playing extremely well with very few unforced errors and/or ground balls. The Dons were first to score when Michael Bone landed a great shot followed shortly after by a pass from Matty Mariani to Jack Thoren for a goal. The Dons defense played outstanding the entire night and only allowed 1 goal from Campo in the second quarter. Score at half time Dons 2 to Campo 1. The 3rd quarter was another shut-out quarter by the Dons with a Jake Landry assist to Leo Barakos, a Nathan Brickman assist to Colin Jeffries and Nate Welcomer blocking all shots coming his way from Campo. Score at the end of the 3rd quarter: Dons 4 to Campo 1. The 4th quarter saw another goal by Colin Jeffries with an assist from Fynn Chorak. But, momentum shifted a few minutes into the 4th quarter and Campo went on a run… landing 4 goals to tie the game at 5 to 5 with just under 2 minutes of play left. Both teams attempted goals in the final minutes but were unsuccessful, sending them into sudden death overtime.

The Cougars won the faceoff and made a valiant effort to land a goal, but were unsuccessful. The Dons then had their chance to score, moving the ball swiftly down the field, but their first attempt was stopped and Campo had the ball back. Incredible play by both the Dons’ offense, midfielders, defense and especially Joey Gladden, forced Campo to lose the ball about the 50 yard line and a ground ball recovery by Gladden allowed Nathan Brickman to set up behind the cage. With a swift dodge and a charge through two Campo defenders, Brickman managed to release the ball mid fall and sink it into the back of the net. Game over! Final score Acalanes 6 to Campo 5.

The entire defense was honored with the game ball last night as they were tremendous in stopping Campo time and time again. Josh Baginski (forced 2 turnovers), Joey Gladden (4 ground balls & 2 forced turnovers), Glenn Johnston (2 ground balls), Brian Maiken (forced 4 turnovers) and man down defender Sean Ortlieb were relentless all game.

Goalie Nate Welcomer chalked up 13 saves, Parker Henderson had 1 save.

Mar 18 – Acalanes Hosts Campo in Boys Lacrosse

Please come out and support the Boy’s Lax Teams this Friday night as they host Campolindo for the annual Matt Lynn Game Day!

There will be a Taco Truck in the parking lot before the games.

About Matt Lynn: Matt, a 1999 Acalanes High School graduate, was a high school varsity swimmer, water polo player and club lacrosse player. He attended UCSB where he played lacrosse for four years, and was a member of the 2004 Men’s National Championship team. He was an assistant coach for the AHS boys’ junior and varsity lacrosse teams during the 2004 – 2007 seasons. While coaching during the last two years, he fiercely battled brain cancer with surgeries, chemotherapy and radiation treatments. Coach Ringwood, AHS’s Head Lacrosse Coach, grew up playing lacrosse with Matt and went on to play with Matt at UCSB. Coach Ringwood and Matt also coached together at AHS. Six months after being diagnosed, Matt decided to continue coaching at AHS because he wanted his players to know that cancer is not always a terminal disease. Wearing a helmet on the sidelines after brain surgery or running sprints after a chemotherapy treatment showed his players that surviving cancer required hard work and courage. Shortly after Matt died December 13, 2009, the Lynn Family decided to establish a scholarship fund in his name. The Lamorinda community continues to support the scholarship fund through several fund-raising and cancer awareness events annually. The Lynn family’s hope is to award scholarships in Matt’s name for many years to come.

Please join us – come early to grab some food, help honor Matt Lynn and his family, and enjoy a great game of lacrosse. Please note, this is the only game we charge for entrance during the season. Gate fees are collected and all fees are donated to the Matt Lynn Scholarship Fund.

JV Starts at 5:30, Varsity at 7pm.

Mar 11 – Boys Lacrosse

Friday night brought the Dons another narrow loss in the final pre-league game, falling short to Marin Academy with a final score of 6 to 7. The Dons were strong out of the gate with Luke Olson scoring the first goal of the game. And a beautiful pass from Michael Bone to Jack Thoren drew the 2nd goal. Marin Academy answered back with one of their own. The 2nd quarter was back and forth with goals from Michael Bone and Grant Jackson bringing the score at halftime to Dons 4 and MA 3. Two in a row were scored by MA in the 3rd quarter, which put them ahead by 1. But a beautiful pass from Jack Thoren to Colin Jeffries tied the game. MA responded with another go-ahead goal, but another great pass from Nathan Brickman to Colin Jeffries tied the game again. With a score of 6 to 6 starting the 4th quarter, both teams possessed the ball well, played strong defense and took multiple shots, but MA was lucky enough to land one. With just a minute or so left to play, the Dons had a chance to tie the game again… but time ran out before they could sink one. Final score Dons 6 – MA 7.

Joey Gladden dominated both defensively and offensively winning 4 of his 6 face-offs, forcing 2 turnovers and recovering at least 4 ground balls. Colin Jeffries had 2 goals and 1 assist, Jack Thoren had 1 goal and 1 assist, Michael Bone had 1 goal, Grant Jackson with 1 goal, Luke Olson had 1 goal.

As always, “Lightning Leo” Barakos cleared several balls and out-ran the opponent on multiple occasions. Goalie Nate Welcomer had 6 saves. The defense consistently fought hard with bold plays by Josh Baginski and Glenn Johnston plus forced turnovers by Brian Maiken.

The Lacrosse team hosted Monte Vista on Friday night in another tough battle of skill and numbers with MV having a very talented and deep roster. Nathan Brickman and Jake Landry both scored in the first quarter, but MV answered back with 4 goals of their own. The Dons were shut out in both the 2nd and 3rd quarters while MV continued to add goals to the score board. Although they never gave up, entering the 4th quarter with a score of 2-12 proved to be too much of a deficit for the Dons despite a goal from Colin Jeffries and another from Nathan Brickman. Final score 4 to 13.

Mar 1 – Boys Lacrosse NCS Championship Rematch

The Varsity Boys’ Lacrosse team faced their North Bay rival, Marin Catholic, on Tuesday afternoon. Acalanes and MC have met the past 3 years in the NCS Championship game with a record of 1-2. It always proves to be an exciting game when these two teams meet and Tuesday was no exception.

The 1st quarter appeared pretty evenly matched with MC scoring 3 goals and Acalanes 2. MC managed to build up steam and took off in the 2nd quarter scoring 7 goals and Acalanes just 1. Score at halftime was 3-10. Many would have thought the game was over for Acalanes, however the team dug deep, stepped up their game tremendously and outscored MC in both the 3rd quarter and 4th quarters. Entering the 3rd quarter with a score 8-12 and momentum on their side, Acalanes continued to charge MC and managed to score another 2 goals bringing the score to 10-12 with just a few minutes left in the game. Unfortunately, each MC possession managed to click precious time off the clock and, although valiant efforts were made for an exciting comeback, the clock ran out before the Dons were able to even the score. Final Score Dons 10 – 12 MC.

Game Highlights:

Leo Barakos, Nathan Brickman and Colin Jeffries each scored 2 goals. Michael Bone, Jake Landry, Matty Mariani and Jack Thoren scored 1 goal each. Assists came from Jack Thoren (3), Michael Bone (2), Grant Jackson (2), Daniel Agazzi (1).

Leo Barakos dominated the ground ball recoveries with 5, Michael Bone 3, Josh Baginski, Joey Gladden and Jake Landry had 2 ground balls each in hard fought battles. Brian Maiken and Joey Gladden forced MC to make a number of turnovers.

Next game is Friday night at home against Monte Vista!

Feb 26 – Boys Lacrosse win against Piedmont

The Boys Lacrosse season is well under way. It started out rough, with losses to 2 great teams – St. Ignatius Prep (11-2) and San Ramon Valley High (18-4).

The team has been working hard and took what they learned from their opening losses to pull off a rewarding win in an exciting battle against Piedmont last Friday night. During the 1st quarter, Acalanes scored 2 goals and possessed the ball the majority of the time shutting down Piedmont completely. The tide turned in the second quarter as Piedmont scored 2 goals. The score at halftime was 2-2. Acalanes scored the lone goal of the 3rd quarter. Then Piedmont scored the first goal of the 4th quarter to tie the game again at 3-3 with just a few minutes left on the clock. Fortunately, two Acalanes’ sophomores came up with a winning combination and a goal from Fynn Chorak was set up by a great pass from Jake Landry. Final score Acalanes 4, Piedmont 3.

Outstanding defense was played Friday night as evidenced by such a low scoring game! Glenn Johnston led the charge forcing Piedmont to turn over the ball 5 times, Brian Maiken forced 3 turnovers, Joey Gladden forced 2 turnovers and Josh Baginski 1. Michael Bone and Colin Jeffries dominated the ground ball recovery with 3 each. Goalie Nate Welcomer played a terrific game with 11 saves.

Fynn Chorak scored 2 goals, Grant Jackson scored 2 unassisted goals, Michael Bone and Jake Landry had 1 assist each.

Boy’s Lax falls short in NCS Championship game

On Friday night the Boy’s Lacrosse Team faced Marin Catholic in the NCS Championship game for the 3rd year in a row. Despite a valiant effort, the Dons fell short of MC with a final score of 8 to 9. The teams were evenly matched ranking #1 (Dons) and #2 (MC) going in to the final game.

Acalanes was first to score but MC quickly answered back with a goal of their own. Acalanes did pull ahead in the first quarter with a lead of 3 to 1. The 2nd quarter was more challenging for the Dons as MC scored 3 goals and the Dons were shut-out. Score at halftime was 3 to 4. The Dons were also out-scored in the 3rd quarter but rallied in the 4th which brought the game to a 1 point difference and a score of 8 to 9 with just under 3 minutes left to play. Although MC won the final face-off and wound some time off the clock, Acalanes was able to recover the ball with @ 45 seconds left in the game. The Dons gave it all they had and marched down the field as the clock ticked off precious seconds. Unfortunately, the Dons were unable to get a shot off before the clock ran down and just barely missed the opportunity to tie the game.

Despite a rib injury, Adrian Jeffries scored an impressive 4 goals and had 2 assists. Leo Barakos scored 2 goals including a fast break where he went coast to coast for an outstanding goal. Grant Jackson and Vinny Gladden scored 1 goal each with assists coming from Nathan Brickman and Jack Thoren. The Don’s offense took a total of 38 shots in last night’s game, 8 of which resulted in goals and 31 of which were either slighty off, hit cage or stopped by the MC goalie (who did have a very impressive game).

The Don’s defense battled hard, as they always do! Josh Baginski, Sam deRoque, Glenn Johnston, Vinny Gladden, Brian Maiken and Cole Tanner led in recovering ground balls and forcing MC turnovers.

Nate Welcomer had 10 sweet saves.

The Dons end the season with a winning record of 18 to 5. They are ranked 4th in North Coast CIF and ranked 32nd in California (LAXPOWER). They were also UNDEFEATED in DFAL and beat Campo not once, not twice, but three times. Overall it was an incredible season for the Dons!

The Boys Lax team is headed to the Championship!

Wednesday night the Dons faced #4 seed Marin Academy in the NCS Semi-Final game. The Dons possessed the ball for almost the entire first half, scoring 3 goals and shutting MA out for the first 24 minutes. The 2nd half saw a bit more action as the Dons stepped it up a notch and scored 4 goals, with MA managing to get on the board with 2. The Dons ran away with it in the fourth quarter as the momentum set in and 6 more Acalanes’ goals were scored. Final score of the game Dons 13 to MA 5.

Senior Sam deRoque stunned MA’s defense. Photo Courtesy of Terry Maiken

Sam deRoque was unstoppable at face-off winning all 9 of his attempts and scoring the first goal of the game. When MA did manage to get the ball, Vinny Gladden often forced them to drop it and turn it right back over to the Dons. Jack Thoren was outstanding intercepting 3 of MA’s attempts to clear the ball and recovering a number of loose ground balls. The entire Don’s defense played so well that MA was only able to take 5 shots in the entire first half.

Nathan Brickman led in scoring Wednesday night with 3 goals and 1 assist. Sam deRoque and Grant Jackson each scored 2 goals. Leo Barakos, Michael Bone, Adrian Jeffries, Chris Lane, Nathan Lee, and Cole Tanner scored 1 goal each. Two assists came from Jack Thoren. Jackson Birdsall, Michael Bone, Finn Chorak, Vinny Gladden and Adrian Jeffries also contributed with 1 assist each.

Nate Welcomer had 5 saves and Danny Ennis had 5 saves.

Boys Lax Team Beats Campo, Again!

Congratulations to the boys AND girls lacrosse teams as they both advance to the NCS semi-finals!

On Friday night, the Dons faced Campo for the 3rd time this season. Dons came out fighting and controlled the ball for the majority of the game. The first half proved to be tight as the Dons led by only 1 point with a score of 3 to 2 heading in to halftime. But Acalanes continued to play their game, pass and possess the ball and scored 6 goals in the 3rd quarter, Campo just 1. Even though Campo had a brief rally in the 4th quarter, they were still outscored, again, by the Dons 4 to 3. Final score 13 to 6.

Vinny Gladden

Cole Tanner played an outstanding game scoring 4 goals, including 1 where his quick reflexes caught a rebounded shot which Cole immediately shot right back in the net. Adrian Jeffries turned it up in the 2nd half and scored 4 goals and 1 assist. Grant Jackson had an impressive 2 goals. We were thrilled to see the return of Colin Jeffries after an injury had sidelined him for a few weeks – Colin scored 1 goal. Chris Lane had 1 goal and Freshman call-up Finn Chorak made an impact with his first appearance catching a quick pass from Adrian Jeffries and firing it in to the net for a goal. Other assists came from Nathan Brickman, Sam deRoque, Vinny Gladden and Chris Lane.

Nate Welcomer

The Don’s entire midline and defense were a force to be reckoned with Friday night. Vinny Gladden and Glenn Johnston led the night in forcing Campo turnovers and recovering ground balls. Brian Maiken always impresses with his relentless defense, ground ball recoveries and accurate clears. Leo Barakos and Sam deRogue’s speed shined through last night on several clears and breakaways. The victory was clearly a team effort!

Nate Welcomer shined as goalie with an impressive 5 saves.

May 1 – Dons stomp on the Mats, again.

Despite a season riddled with injuries, the Dons continue to move forward with great success. In Friday night’s action, the Dons defeated the Mats with a final score of 12 to 6.

Adrian Jeffries (aka Romeo) was unstoppable with 6 goals and 2 assists last night! Adrian’s stick skills certainly got the attention of the Miramonte coach who called for a stick check on him in the 2nd half. As always, Adrian’s stick passed the stick check – he just simply has mad skills! Within minutes of the stick check, Adrian scored again with a beautiful behind the back goal. Way to go Romeo.

Apr 17 – Dons slay Knights to remain undefeated in DFAL

#68 Chris Greer had 3 goals against Las Lomas on Friday night

#68 Chris Greer had 3 goals against Las Lomas on Friday night

The Boys’ lacrosse team faced off against Las Lomas on Friday night and came away with a stunning 17 to 6 victory. It appeared after the 1st quarter that it might be a close game with the score at the end of the 1st quarter just 4-3 in favor of the Dons. But the Dons we are used to seeing showed up in the 2nd quarter! With great passing and play execution, the Dons ran away with it in the 2nd quarter. Score at halftime was 12 to 4. All of the team had a chance to play resulting in a final score of 17 to 6. The Dons remain undefeated in DFAL.

Highlights include: Adrian Jeffries with 3 goals and 4 assists, Chris Greer 3 goals, Jack Thoren had 2 goals and 2 assists, Nathan Brickman had 2 goals and 1 assist, Sam deRoque and Vinny Gladden had 2 goals each, Taylor Howell, Luke Olson and Cole Tanner each had 1 goal. Additional assists came from Chris Lane and Trent Nemanic. Sam deRoque and Taylor Howell consistently won face-offs. Defensively, Vinny Gladden led the charge with at least 8 ground ball retrievals while forcing Las Lomas to turnover the ball 5 or more times. Vinny Gladden, Glenn Johnston, Brian Maiken and Josh Baginski all contributed to shutting Las Lomas down time and time again. Calvin Vance successfully stopped a direct shot (with his leg… ouch).

Danny Ennis and Nate Welcomer shined, yet again, as our outstanding goalie combination with Danny having 4 saves in the first half and Nate had 5 saves in the second half.

The Dons will face Dublin on Thursday at Acalanes @ 7pm.

Apr 14 – Varsity Boys Lax Team Narrowly Defeats Campo

On Tuesday night, the Boys lacrosse team took on their cross town rivals at home. The Cougars came out fighting and possessed the ball for the majority of the first half, allowing the Dons to only score 2 goals. Despite the Cougars time of possession, the Dons defense fought hard and held the Cougars to 2 goals as well. Score at halftime was tied at 2 to 2.

The Dons looked a bit more alive in the 2nd half, but the Cougars weren’t giving up. Dons scored 2 in the 3rd quarter, Cougars scored 1. With the final quarter left to play, and back and forth goals made by both teams, the tension and excitement was building. However, the Dons pulled ahead 7 to 6 with just a few minutes left in the game. A face-off win by Sam deRoque, gave the Dons a much needed possession and they were able to wind some extremely valuable time off the clock. With a delay of game penalty called on the Dons and less than 50 seconds to go, the Dons’ defense had to fight hard to prevent the Cougars from scoring and forcing them in to overtime. Although the Cougars did get a shot off, they missed. Nate Welcomer’s quick reflexes recovered the ball and he sent if flying in to Don’s territory just as time ran out. Final score Dons 7, Cougars 6.

Adrian Jeffries had 5 goals and 1 assist. Sam deRoque had 1 goal and 1 assist. Cole Tanner had 1 goal.

Josh Baginski was a standout at defense helping to force a number of Cougar turnovers and recovering 4 ground balls. Nate Welcomer had 9 saves at goalie.

Acalanes remains undefeated in DFAL and will face Las Lomas on Friday night at home. Game starts at 7pm!

The Boys Lacrosse Team was defeated by Novato on Thursday night with a final score of 9 to 10. Novato came out fighting and put 2 goals on the board within the first few minutes of the game. Acalanes fought back and outscored Novato in the first quarter 5 to 3. In the second quarter, Novato rallied and outscored the Dons 5 to 1. Score at halftime was Dons 6 and Novato 8. The pace slowed down tremendously in the second half and the Dons allowed zero goals by Novato and scored 2 of their own in the 3rd quarter. But it just wasn’t enough – With the 4th quarter start at a tie game of 8 to 8, Novato managed to control the ball enough to run important time off the clock and score 2 goals while the Dons only answered with 1. Final score Acalanes 9, Novato 10.

The Jeffries brothers dominated offensively for the Dons with both Adrian Jeffries and Colin Jeffries scoring 4 goals each with 1 assist each, including an impressive behind the back goal by Colin! Chris Lane also scored 1 and Jack Thoren had an assist.

Mar 24 – Dons Stomp on the Mats

There was a fantastic turn out of fans and supporters on Tuesday night including the UCSB Men’s Lacrosse Team who came to watch the Dons take on Miramonte and honor the life of Matt Lynn. There were many colorful socks on the field worn in tribute to Matt. On behalf of the Lynn Family and the Acalanes’ Lacrosse programs, thank you for your support.

Once again, there were many contributors on the field with impressive plays coming from a number of players: Defensively, Josh Baginski , Vinny Gladden, Glenn Johnston, and Brian Maiken fought relentlessly to protect the goalies only allowing Miramonte to score 1 the entire game and forcing a number of turnovers on the Mats. Tom Hofmeister forced a great turnover and scooped up an impressive ground ball to run down the field for a terrific clear. Freshman pull-up Calvin Vance retrieved one ground ball and forced a turnover in his first official appearance as a Varsity player.

Offensively, the Dons dominated scoring a total of 15 goals. Adrian Jeffries led with points, scoring 3 goals and 5 assists. Nathan Brickman had 3 goals and 2 assists. Vinny Gladden had 2 goals. Sam deRoque, Chris Greer, Grant Jackson, Chris Lane, Nathan Lee, Brian Maiken and Cole Tanner each scored 1 goal. Tyler Henderson had 2 assists and Jack Thoren had 1.

TONIGHT is a Special Night of Lacrosse!

Come watch the Boys’ Lacrosse Teams take on Miramonte tonight at Acalanes (JV at 5:30 and Varsity at 7pm) and help support the Matt Lynn Memorial Scholarship Fund!

Matt, a 1999 AHS graduate, was a high school varsity swimmer, water polo player and club lacrosse player.  He attended UCSB where he played lacrosse for four years, and was a member of the 2004 Men’s National Championship team.  He was an assistant coach for the AHS boys’ junior and varsity lacrosse teams during the 2004 – 2007 seasons. While coaching during the last two years, he fiercely battled brain cancer with surgeries, chemotherapy and radiation treatments.  Coach Ringwood, AHS’s Head Lacrosse Coach, grew up playing lacrosse with Matt and went on to play with Matt at UCSB.  Coach Ringwood and Matt also coached together at AHS.

Six months after being diagnosed, Matt decided to continue coaching at AHS because he wanted his players to know that cancer is not always a terminal disease.  Wearing a helmet on the sidelines after brain surgery or running sprints after a chemotherapy treatment showed his players that surviving cancer required hard work and courage.

Three years ago, the UCSB Men’s lacrosse team established an annual tradition of voting for the player who most exemplifies Matt’s values and play:  love of the game, dedication to his teammates, courage and leaving everything on the field.  The selected player wears Matt’s #19 for the season.   Last year’s #19 recipient wrote this:  “When I put on my #19 jersey for the first practice of the season, I really had no idea how difficult it was going to be to constantly maintain the sort of effort and determination that Matt was known for.  It has been quite challenging, albeit extremely rewarding, to try and live up to the expectations that Matt has set for the #19. I sincerely hope that I can help shape the program as he did.  He has managed to set an example of selflessness and diligence that the whole team has benefited from.”

Shortly after Matt died December 13, 2009 from brain cancer, the Lynn Family decided to establish an AHS scholarship fund in his name.  The Lamorinda community continues to support the scholarship fund through several fund-raising and cancer awareness events annually.  The Lynn family’s hope is to award scholarships in Matt’s name for many years to come.

There will be a donation table set up and we will be collecting gate entry fees to benefit the scholarship fund.  Donors can make checks payable to the East Bay Community Foundation (EBCF); “Matt Lynn Memorial Scholarship” should be written in the memo line.  The contributions can also be mailed to EBCF, 200 Frank Ogawa Plaza, Oakland, CA  94612.  Their tax ID is 94-6070996.

The snack shack will also be open during tonight’s game.

Go Dons!

Double Overtime Win for Varsity Boy’s Lacrosse

The Dons traveled to Marin for a great game against Marin Academy last Friday afternoon. It was a tight game from the very beginning with back and forth goals. The score at halftime was Dons 5 to MA 4. Although the Dons out-scored MA in the 3rd quarter, MA was able to rally back in the 4th. When the clock ran out the game was tied at 10. The first sudden death overtime period ended without a score. The second overtime period seemed destined to end the same way as the clock was running down. However, Adrian Jeffries got off a last minute shot that landed in the net for the win! Final score 11 to 10 for the Dons!

Adrian Jeffries scored a total of 4 goals, including the game winner, and had 2 assists. Tyler Henderson and Chris Lane each had 2 goals, Michael Bone, Sam deRoque and Cole Tanner had 1 goal each. Assists came from Vinny Gladden, Chris Greer, Tyler Henderson, Brian Maiken, and Cole Tanner.

Dons Win League Opener Against Las Lomas

The action started early with Sam deRoque winning face-offs which led to quick goals and an early lead by the Dons. At the end of the first quarter the Dons were up 5 to 1. With constant pressure from the Don’s defense, Las Lomas was forced to turnover the ball again and again. Vinny Gladden and Glenn Johnston led the charge, each causing 4 of the LL turnovers. By halftime, the score was 10 to 3 and the Knights simply didn’t have an opportunity to recover.
Offensively, Nathan Brickman and Tyler Henderson were an unstoppable combination with Brickman scoring 5 goals and 3 assists and Henderson scoring 4 goals and 2 assists. Grant Jackson and Chris Lane each had 2 goals. Leo Barakos, Colin Jeffries and Cole Tanner had 1 goal each with assists coming from Michael Bone, Sam deRoque, and Jack Thoren.

Mar 3 – Boy’s Lacrosse: NCS Championship Rematch

Tuesday night’s Varsity lacrosse game was a rematch of the 2014 (and 2013) NCS Division II Championship game(s): Acalanes vs. Marin Catholic. Although MC scored the first 2 goals of the game, the Dons were not rattled and answered back ending the 1st quarter with a score of 2 to 2. The Dons dominated the 2nd quarter scoring 5 goals and entered halftime with a 7 to 4 lead. With an even 3rd quarter at 2 goals each, the Dons began the 4th quarter with a lead of 9 to 6. But the 4th quarter proved to be challenging for the Dons as MC put up 2 unanswered goals. With just a few minutes left in the game, the Dons were fighting to hang on to a 9 to 8 lead. Thanks to a tough defense and an offense that was able to possess the ball, the Dons rode the clock to victory with a final score of 9 to 8.

Josh Baginski, Vinny Gladden, Joey Gladden and Brian Maiken forced a number of MC turnovers with their outstanding defense. Adrian Jeffries continues to dominate the offense with 5 goals and 1 assist, Sam deRoque had 2 goals & 1 assist, Colin Jeffries had 1 goal & 1 assist, Tyler Henderson had 1 goal. Nathan Brickman had 2 assists with Michael Bone and Chris Lane having 1 assist each. Face-offs were won by Leo Barakos and Sam deRoque at 2 each.

The Dons are fortunate to have 2 outstanding goalies this year with the return of Danny Ennis and Varsity newcomer Nate Welcomer. Each had 2 saves with a game changing steal in the 4th quarter by Nate Welcomer.

On Thursday the Boy’s lacrosse teams will travel to Monte Vista to face the Mustangs in what will surely be an exciting game.

July 28 – Blood Drive on Monday

Caroline Newman (Acalanes Girls LAX), a Girl Scout from Lafayette, is partnering with the Monument Crisis Center and the Blood Centers of the Pacific to hold a Community Blood Drive on Monday, July 28 at the Monument Crisis Center in Concord.

Caroline, who is going to be a senior this fall at  Acalanes High School, is working on her Girl Scout Gold Award project: Blood Donation Awareness Campaign & Community Blood Drive.

The Girl Scout Gold Award represents the highest achievement in scouting, recognizing girls who demonstrate extraordinary leadership through remarkable “Take Action” projects that have a sustainable impact on their communities.

In a leadership group last year at Acalanes, Caroline became involved in the school’s Healthy Choices Board that helps organize, among other things, an annual blood drive.

“After donating blood for the first time last year,  I learned that about one in seven people entering a hospital need blood,” Caroline said. “Nearly 60 percent of the population is eligible to donate blood, but less than 5 percent actually donates.”

“In my conversations with medical professionals from the  Blood Centers of the Pacific, I learned that once people donate they are likely to become lifelong donors. Several of the reasons people do not donate include little opportunity, fear and lack of understanding of the need for blood,” she said.

“With this new insight and an interest to help, I decided to develop a plan to build awareness for the need to donate blood, as well as to communicate the simplicity of actually donating.”

The  Monument Crisis Center in Concord is acting as the host site, and local businesses, including BMW of Concord and Fry’s Electronics, are joining in as active participants, Caroline said.

The blood drive will be in Monument’s parking lot at at 1990 Market St. To schedule your appointment, visit www.bloodheroes.com.

WHITE PLAINS, N.Y., – USTA Serves, the national charitable foundation of the United States Tennis Association, announced today that two local high school students were awarded either an $8,000 College Educational Scholarship or a $1,000 College Textbook Scholarship. The Foundation has granted 49 high school students a variety of college scholarships this spring, totaling $330,000.

The honorees were selected from applicants throughout the country on the basis of their commitment to academic success, to their local community and to their participation in tennis.  An objective of USTA Serves is to encourage America’s youth to pursue their goals and highest dreams by succeeding in school and becoming responsible citizens.

USTA Serves awards the College Educational Scholarship annually to high school seniors who have excelled academically, demonstrated community service and participated in an organized tennis program.  The $8,000 scholarship will be awarded over four years to students entering a two or four-year college or university.  The year’s recipient selected among the scholarship winners from across the nation is Kyle Schmidt of Kelseyville, Calif. 

USTA Serves established a College Textbook Scholarship which provides a one-time award of $1,000 to assist students in purchasing textbooks or supplies. This year’s recipient is Daniel Cardiff of Lafayette, Calif. 

“USTA Serves is proud to award these students for their academic achievements and tennis success,” said Dan Faber, USTA Serves Executive Director. “It is exciting to know that with these scholarships, they can continue to prosper. We commend them for their efforts and wish them a future filled with greatness on and off the court.”

May 21 – Boys Lax: Heading to the NCS Division II Championship!

Wednesday night the Boy’s Varsity Lacrosse Team faced Piedmont High School in the NCS Semi-final game. Although Acalanes had the first possession of the game, Piedmont scored the first goal of the game. But Robbie Stern answered back with a goal of his own followed by Vinny Gladden with a spectacular steal and a run down the field for a terrific goal. The Dons then had a great streak with goals by Nathan Brickman, Jack Mariani, Robbie again, Sam deRoque, and Nathan again. The score at the end of the first quarter Dons 7 – Piedmont 2.

The 2nd quarter started with a bang with goals by Cole Tanner, Chris Lane, Robbie Stern, Tyler Henderson and Grant Jackson. Swiftly, Piedmont gained some momentum and scored 3 in a row at the end of the 2nd quarter. Score at halftime: Dons 12 – Piedmont 5

Dons were back on top after the half, possessing the ball for most of the time, making great passes, taking good shots (Piedmont’s goalie had some outstanding saves) and holding on to the ball. Adrian Jeffries (2), Robbie Stern, Jack Mariani and Sam deRoque each scored in the 2nd half with a final victory of Dons 17 – Piedmont 6.

Robbie Stern racked up 8 points for the Dons with a total of 4 goals and 4 assists! Tyler Henderson had several key offensive and defensive plays throughout the game, including a fantastic steal with a break-away run and a quick pass to Adrian Jeffries who fired it to Robbie Stern for a goal. Grant Jackson and Nathan Brickman were a winning combination with Grant feeding Nathan on the run passes, twice, both resulting in goals.

Boys Lacrosse sailed through 1st round NCS Playoffs!

The Boys took on Bay School of San Francisco last night, dominating the entire game. The Dons racked up 10 goals in just the 1st half with a final score of 18 to 1. Standouts are not limited to but include: Adrian Jeffries who scored 4 goals and had 1 assist. Jack Mariani with 3 goals. Robbie Stern with 2 goals and 3 assists. JV call up, Trent Nemanic had 2 goals and 1 assist. Nathan Brickman had 2 goals. John Fraser, Grant Jackson, Peter Mitchell, Matt Reilly and JV call up Jack Thoren each had 1 goal.

Goalies Cam Bosshart and Danny Ennis had 2 saves each as the Don’s defense did not allow Bay School to hold on the ball very long before stripping it away at most every possession. JV call ups Glenn Johnston and Daniel Agazzi were big contributors assisting the senior defenders Jack DeVeny, Tommy Kresnak and Jackson May along with sophomore Brian Maiken. The Dons won the majority of ground balls including several by Tyler Henderson, Taylor Howell and Vinny Gladden.

The Boys advance to the Quarter Finals and will play St. Mary’s of Stockton Rams on Friday, May 16th at 5 pm at Acalanes. The Rams are a senior-heavy roster, with 16 of their 26 players scheduled to graduate in weeks. They are sure to come hoping for a win.

Boy’s Varsity Lax ~ 2 Down, 1 to Go

It’s been a busy week for the Boy’s Varsity Lacrosse Team facing off against Dougherty Valley on Tuesday and then playing a tough opponent in De LaSalle on Wednesday.

Tuesday’s game against Dougherty Valley was a blowout. The Dons scored goal after goal with relative ease. Sean Quinn had a sensational night scoring 5 goals followed closely by Adrian Jeffries who scored 4. Nathan Brickman had 2 goals and 4 assists, Peter Mitchell had 2 goals and 1 assist, Robbie Stern had 1 goal and 4 assists and Chris Lane had 2 goals. The Dons didn’t stop there… Tyler Henderson, John Fraser, Matt Reilly, and Cole Tanner each had 1 goal. That’s 20 points racked up for the Dons with  just 1 goal scored by Dougherty Valley.

Sam Wood played a terrific first half facing-off for the Dons. With help from Chris Lane and Peter Mitchell, the boys won all but a couple of the face-offs. Danny Ennis held strong as the goaltender, allowing just 1 goal all evening. Final score Dons 20 to 1 for Dougherty Valley.

On Wednesday, the Dons played a tough opponent in De LaSalle. Riddled with injuries and missing some key players, the Dons could not hold on to their winning streak and fell short to the Spartans. The boys started out strong with Peter Mitchell scoring the first 2 goals for the Dons only to be outscored by DLS which resulted in a first quarter score of Dons 2 to DLS 3. The 2nd quarter looked about the same with a terrific assist from Robbie Stern to Nathan Brickman but with a couple more goals by DLS it brought the score to Dons 3 to DLS 6 at the half. Unfortunately, DLS had 4 unanswered goals in the 3rd quarter which widened their lead to Dons 3 to DLS 10 to start the 4th quarter. The 4th quarter looked much better for the Dons as Jack Mariani, despite an injury, was able to score 2 unanswered goals with 1 being an assist from Nathan Brickman. But the margin was too great to overcome and the final score was Dons 5 to DLS 10.

Both Cam Bosshart and Danny Ennis played some terrific goal-keeping and the defense of Jack Deveny, Vinny Gladden, Brian Maiken, Jackson May and Tommy Kresnak battled hard against the quick and strong DLS offense. Peter Mitchel faced-off for the Dons with back up from Sam Wood.

Finn Heidenreich and Nick Mani both underwent surgery Wednesday for their injuries. Reportedly, both surgeries went well! The entire Lacrosse program would like to wish them speedy recoveries and we look forward to seeing them back on the field next year in tip top shape.

The Varsity team will take on Miramonte at 7pm on Friday night. A win by the Dons will make them the DFAL champions and set them up nicely for the NCS playoffs. Let’s get it done Dons!

May 1- Boy’s Varsity Lacrosse – Another Spectacular Win!

Thursday night was a special night for the Dons as they honored their Seniors and fought a hard battle against the Las Lomas Knights. Las Lomas was the only DFAL opponent the Dons had lost to this season and both teams came out fighting. The first half of the game appeared to be an even matched battle with the score at half-time: Dons 5 – Knights 4.

The half time pep talk in the locker room sure changed things around! The Dons returned to the field and showed Las Lomas what they are truly made of. Scoring goal after goal, the Dons managed to create a 4 point differential bringing the score to 9 to 5 as they entered the 4th quarter. Even though Las Lomas was able to score 2 more goals in the 4th quarter, the Dons answered back with 2 more of their own.

With the clock winding down and less than 4 minutes to play, Sam Wood won the faceoff which sealed the fate for Las Lomas. The offense managed to pass the ball around and around and around in what must have been a frustrating 3½ minutes for the Knights! Try as they might, the Knights were unable to get the ball back. To put icing on the cake, Adrian Jeffries shot with just a few seconds remaining in the game, bringing the final score to 12 to 7.

Robbie Stern was unstoppable scoring 6 goals of his own and handing out 2 assists! That’s 8 points on the board from the senior standout! Adrian Jeffries had 4 goals, Jack Mariani had 1 goal and 2 assists and Tyler Henderson had 1 goal.

As with every game this season, the defense fought hard and played extremely well. From Vinny Gladden’s numerous hits that resulted in turnovers to Brian Maiken’s outstanding coverage of Las Lomas’ D1 commit, not much was getting past the defense. Goalie Cam Bosshart had a number of remarkable saves.

We will be sad to say goodbye to our 12 outstanding seniors at the end of this season: Cam Bosshart, Jack DeVeny, Tommy Kresnak, John Fraser, Jackson May, Jack Mariani, Peter Mitchell, Marshall Morse, Sean Quinn, Matt Reilly, Robbie Stern and Sam Wood. But it’s not over yet… the boys still have to clinch the DFAL title and fight on in the NCS Playoffs! Go Dons!

Apr 26 – Congratulations to Boy’s Varsity Lacrosse

…for beating Redwood High School Saturday with a final score of 6 to 4.

It was an exciting game on Saturday as the 2013 Division 2 champions (Acalanes) took on the 2013 Division 1 champions (Redwood). The game started out with a bang when Nathan Brickman and Adrian Jeffries both scored in the first quarter. The Don’s outstanding defense shut out Redwood in the first quarter allowing them no chances to score. Redwood managed to get on the board in the second quarter going into the 2nd half with a score of 2 to 1. Jack Mariani and Chris Lane both scored in the 3rd quarter bringing the score to 4 to 2. With less than 12 minutes left in the game Robbie Stern scored bringing the score to 5 to 2. Redwood managed to score 2 back to back goals which left less than 5 minutes in the game and many people were worried and wondering… Could the Dons could pull it off? However, Adrian Jeffries answered back with another goal in the 4th quarter. With tremendous pressure from the Dons’ defense and outstanding goalie saves by Cam Bosshart, Redwood was unable to score again. As the clock ticked down, the Dons knew the win was within reach and the sideline celebration began. As is tradition, the elated boys rushed Cam to celebrate his and all of the defense’s tremendous play! Acalanes is only the 2nd team this year to hold Redwood to just 4 goals, as most of Redwoods opponents have allowed them an average of 12 goals per game.

I would be remiss not to mention Peter Mitchell won 8 of the 12 face-offs, Vinny Gladden made several outstanding plays and won many ground balls, Tyler Henderson helped changed the momentum of the game with several key defensive and offensive plays. Thank you to the terrific turn-out of friends, fellow students and fans who came to cheer on the team. I would estimate it was the most well attended game so far this year. Congratulations to the entire team on an outstanding win!

Acalanes remains ranked #1 in CIF North Coast and #4 in California. The Dons will play Tuesday at Campolindo and Thursday at home against Las Lomas celebrating Senior night. Both games are at 7pm.

The Boy’s Varsity Lacrosse Team had a busy week

With a total of 4 games played, the Dons were on a streak but could not hold on against Novato.

Friday night the Dons played at Alhambra inviting many JV players up to play against the league opponent. It proved to be successful as the Dons dominated Alhambra with a final score of 12 to 1. Taylor Howell and Cole Tanner led the charge with 3 goals each. Matt Reilly had 2 goals, Leo Barakos, Tristen Guzaitis, Robbie Stern, Jack Thoren each had 1 goal. The boys played a strong defense with great play from Daniel Agazzi and Glenn Johnston. Goalkeeper Danny Ennis had 9 saves.

The Varsity Lacrosse team also faced off against a tough opponent on Saturday in Novato ending a 4 game week. It was an exciting game with a tie score in the 4th quarter of 8 to 8. With less than 2 minutes to go, Novato scored. Unfortunately, the Dons were unsuccessful in their final attempts to score ending the game with 9 to 8 loss. Fear not, the Dons are still ranked #1 in CIF North Coast and now have a record of 11-2. Adrian Jeffries, Peter Mitchell and Robbie Stern had 2 goals each, Nathan Brickman and Jack Mariani each had 1 goal.

This week, the Lacrosse team faces Dublin on Tuesday at Acalanes. The most exciting game of the season is sure to be on Saturday as they face the #2 ranked team, Redwood. Please come out and support the Lacrosse program on Saturday, April 26th at 3pm at Acalanes.  Spread the word, the Boys could use all of the community cheer to help them hang on to the #1 ranking.

Apr 11- Boys Lacrosse

Friday was a great night for the Boy’s Varsity Lacrosse Team! A record number of fans including students, parents and alumni turned out to watch the Dons as they honored the memory of Matt Lynn, a graduate of Acalanes (both a former Don’s lacrosse player and coach) who fought a valiant battle against brain cancer.

The Dons faced off against the Monte Vista Mustangs in what many thought would be a difficult game for the Dons. On the contrary, the Acalanes’ team dominated the majority of the game going in to the second half with a score of 7 to 3. Holding the Mustangs to just 1 goal in the second half, the Dons came out victorious with a final score of 12 to 4. Acalanes is currently ranked #1 in the CIF North Coast by the LaxPower website with a season record of 8 to 1.

Friday night’s win was another team effort by the Dons and all the boys played extremely well. Adrian Jeffries and Tyler Henderson played outstanding with 3 goals each. Nathan Brickman had 2 goals and 1 assist, Jack Mariani had 2 goals and Sam deRoque had a spectacular power goal late in the 2nd quarter. Chris Lane had 2 dynamite assists to Nathan Brickman. Both Cam Bosshart (7 saves) and Danny Ennis (1 save) played terrific goal-keeping holding Monte Vista to just 4 goals. Jack DeVeny continues to be a leader on the defense with 1 assist and 5 ground balls won.

This week’s games include Tuesday at home against Miramonte, Thursday at home against Marin Academy and Friday at Alhambra. All games start at 7pm.

Mar 27 – Acalanes Boys Lacrosse Mauls the SRV Wolves

WOW~ Fantastic Boys Varsity Lacrosse Win Thursday night!

Marshall Morse

San Ramon High School and their 5 (yes five) Division 1 commits couldn’t stop the Dons last night who dominated the majority of the game and came out with an 8 to 5 win over the Wolves. The Dons defense played outstanding with superstar performances by Sophomore Brian Maiken, Junior Vinny Gladden and Seniors Marshall Morse & Jack DeVeny. Cam Bosshart was fantastic in the goal having saves numbering in the double digits! Peter Mitchell was unstoppable and played another terrific game winning the majority of the face-offs and scoring 2 goals. The win was definitely a collective effort by the entire team with the balance of the goals scored by Nathan Brickman, Sam deRoque, Tyler Henderson, Adrian Jeffries, Jack Mariani and Robbie Stern. Last night’s game certainly made up for the disappointing loss to Las Lomas on Tuesday night. The Dons are now 6 and 1 for the season. They play at Dougherty Valley tonight.

Year-End Gift Matching

TIME SENSITIVE!

Fantastic news!  We are very excited to bring you our official “Gift Matching” web page on our  http://acalanesboosters.com/  web site.  The employee Matching Gift Program could easily be one of the year’s largest fundraising efforts for the Acalanes Boosters’ Club.   ANYONE who donated to the ABC this year could request matching gift funds from their employers.   Please take a minute to check if your employer has a Matching Gift Program.  We have hundreds of ABC donators who can potentially raise funds through this program.

Let’s try to collect as much FREE money as we can for our student athletes.  They deserve it!  This is time-sensitive and the cut off for requests is upon us, either Dec. 31, or Jan. 31, 2014. for fiscal year 2013.

Participating employers will have one or two+ donor programs:

1. Employers will match 1:1 eligible dollars donated.

2. Employers will provide a volunteer grant ie. $500 for volunteer hours per their guidelines.

For example, I have already contacted my employer and the ABC will receive $350 matching dollars for my donations, AND another $500 volunteer grant for meeting their criteria of 20-30 volunteer hours/calendar year.  $850 FREE dollars to the ABC.  WOW!  We have already received a few more matching gift donations this year as well.

Below are some easy instructions to follow.  If for any reason you are having difficulty with your submission, please feel free to contact me or your employer.  Mary Piscitelli 765-0457, I will be happy to help you.

D.  Send Brad and I an e-mail with a brief explanation of your donations &/or hours volunteered for that calendar year and we will confirm your qualifying donations when your employer contacts us.  If you need a receipt, we can provide that as well.
