The Falcons have started the season with a pair of wins to go with two losses.

The season started on Nov. 30 with a 2-1 win over Newark Memorial, thanks to a pair of goals from Anthony Boney. Next up was a 4-0 loss to Acalanes four days later.

On Dec. 6 the Falcons found the winning ways again, knocking off Heritage 2-1. After having a potential goal called back on an offsides call, Foothill saw Heritage score to take the 1-0 lead. In the second half, the Falcons rallied to take the win thanks to two goals from Alejandro Ramirez. Harry Herlich and Matthew Tahir each had an assist.

Last Saturday, the Falcons played well but came up just short to Clayton Valley, falling 3-2. Ryan Bongiorno and Tariq Mohammed each got a goal for the Falcons.
