Acalanes 17, No. 11 Campolindo 7

Acalanes held Campolindo scoreless until the final six minutes of the fourth quarter en route to the upset win. The Dons improved to 6-2 overall and 1-1 in the Diablo Athletic League Foothill Division. Campolindo also is 6-2, 1-1. Sophomore receiver Miles Bergman threw a 98-yard touchdown pass to Jack Muren midway through the first quarter to get the scoring started, and it stayed that way until the third period, when Hunter Ridley booted a 35-yard field to make it 10-0 Acalanes. The Dons increased their lead to 17-0 early in the fourth quarter on a 12-yard TD pass from quarterback Brady Huchingson to Muren. Acalanes then appeared to put the game away when Tommy Thrasher picked off a Campo pass, putting the ball just outside the red zone, but the Dons couldn’t take advantage. Campolindo finally broke through on a 17-yard TD toss from QB Grant Harper to Maxwell Weaver, but by then it was too little too late. Acalanes visits Miramonte next Friday while Campolindo goes on the road to Foothill Division leader Las Lomas.
