In front of an enthusiastic home crowd, the Dublin High Varsity Football team engaged in a hard-fought and physical defensive struggle with Amador Valley before falling to the Dons 7-0. The game’s lone touchdown came in the 2nd quarter in what proved to be the decisive score. Dublin had the ball in Amador Valley territory for most of the second half and got inside the 10 yard-line on two occasions in the 4th quarter, but the Dons defense stiffened and Dublin was unable to score.
The Gaels are now 2-1 on the season and travel to face Irvington at Tak Stadium in Fremont on the campus of Washington High School on Friday, September 17th at 7:00. Dublin will be back at home on September 24th to face Liberty.
In JV action, the Gaels raced out to a 20-0 halftime advantage, but the Dons came back in the 2nd half and the game ended in a 20-20 tie.

The game time has also been moved and the team will now be kicking off at 6:00.
