LAFAYETTE -- The scoring attack for the Acalanes High football team came by land and by air as two touchdowns of each kind in the first half helped propel the Dons to a nonleague win over Irvington on Friday night.

Peter Mitchell ran for 125 yards and two scores in the first half for Acalanes (3-0), scoring on runs of 16 yards in the first quarter and 11 yards in the second quarter.

Mitchell finished the game with 224 yards on the ground and scored four touchdowns. He put the game completely out of reach after a 39-yard score, which followed a 13-yard scamper earlier in the third quarter.

"We saw this as a trap game," Acalanes coach Mike Ivankovich said. "We were coming off two big, emotional wins and we were a little tight in the first half and weren't having fun. But we played much better in the second half."

Sandwiched in between the two runs were scoring passes from Casey Harrington to Robbie Stern. A 9-yarder in the first quarter made it 14-7 and a 19-yard strike on fourth down in the second quarter made it 21-13.

The Vikings (1-1) kept it close early, trailing just 14-13 midway through the second quarter.

Jack Shank had a 1-yard run in the first quarter that was set up by a Daniel Gusev interception.

Randon Navarro's 2-yard run made it 14-13 in the second quarter before Acalanes scored 35 unanswered points.

Jared Lozoya finished with 193 yards and a touchdown for Irvington.
