Carmel Valley Dons have another great weekend of football

Jacob Wilsey completes the first pass reception of the season for the Dons Flag team.

The Carmel Valley Mitey Mite team pulled out another victory on Sept. 8 against Granite Hills, winning by a score of 26-6.  #2 Aidan Stewart scored the game’s first touchdown with a quarterback sweep.  #15 Andrew Prag had a huge game at center, and pulled double duty as the placekicker.  Fans cheered wildly as they watched Prag’s extra point kick sail through the goal posts following Stewart’s touchdown.

Brothers #11 Samson Fanua and #57 Sy Fanua, were also critical players in the game as they teamed up on both offense and defense, with Samson scoring the Dons’ second touchdown after a key block by his younger brother Sy.  Two more touchdowns by #2 Aidan Stewart ensured the win, with the Dons’ defense holding the Eagles to just a single touchdown.

The Dons Flag team played valiantly against the Coastal Tritons, but were outmatched on Saturday. The big highlight of the game was the first completed pass of the year, where #5 quarterback Ryan Tom threw a strike to #9 wide receiver Jacob Wilsey which resulted in a 40 yard gain on the play.  Other players to note included #4 Austin Monteiro, #20 Mitchell Smith and #14 Dane Oleksy, first year Flag players who all played well despite the loss.

The Carmel Valley Dons Youth Football was formed in 2010 to create a highly competitive Division 1 football program in the Carmel Valley area aimed at preparing top athletes for high school football. Informally nicknamed “Little Dons” by the Cathedral High football players, much of the team’s success can be attributed to the support of Varsity Head Coach Sean Doyle and Athletic Director David Smola.
