Gael’s Win one at Home, and Take a loss on the Road

Dillon Valadez ‘10

3/7/2009 (Acalanes HS)-- Saturday’s game vs. Reno was a real nail-biter, the final score being 6-5 in favor of the Gaels. Mackenzie Donoghue again was a big player for the Gaels marking two goals in the game, along with senior Alex Dabney who put in two. Dabney’s last goal broke the stalemate in the fourth quarter, to give the Gael’s the one goal advantage.  On the defensive side, Henry Graham stood out for SMC, picking up numerous ground balls and making a number of defensive checks stopping the key players on the Reno offense.

Senior Alex Dabney Reaches SMC Greatness

February 20, 2009- Fans watching SMC Senior Alex Dabney, might see qualities reminiscent of the Looney Tunes Tasmanian Devil out on the field. Indeed, Dabney manages just as many spins and dexterous twist of his stick as the fictitious character.

Dabney’s skills likely derive from natural athletic ability and history of competitive lacrosse. Introduced to the game on the east coast, Alex has experience playing in the region that hails the country’s greatest champions.
