LAFAYETTE -- The Acalanes High football team remained unbeaten by overpowering visiting Tennyson, scoring on seven consecutive possessions en route to a 45-15 nonleague victory.

Peter Mitchell ran for 175 yards and two touchdowns before he sat out most of the second half when the Dons (4-0) took a 35-9 lead. He scored on a 54-yard run in the first quarter, and from 2 yards out late in the first half. Casey Harrington threw for three touchdowns, including 7 and 5 yards to Andrew Bosshart and 21 yards to Sam deRoque.

Tennyson (1-2) caught an early break when Joshua Handy recovered Mitchell's fumble on the Dons' first play from scrimmage, which led to a 24-yard field goal by Kendrick Roldon. But the Lancers had no answers for Acalanes the rest of the way.

Tennyson crowded the line of scrimmage on defense most of the game, keeping as many as nine players within three yards of the ball. It was not enough to slow down Mitchell or his replacement, Jared Feeney, who went for 53 yards and a touchdown on 13 carries in the second half. The Dons ran for 254 yards, and had 360 yards of total offense. Harrington was efficient, completing 7-of-10 passes for 106 yards.

Anchored by linebacker Grant Henderson, who recorded three tackles for loss, Acalanes held Tennyson to 94 yards of offense in the first half -- 56 of that on the Lancers' first possession.

Quarterback Christian Silva ran for one touchdown and threw an 11-yard touchdown to Jacob Watson.
