It was a big weekend for the Davis Knights’ U15 boys lacrosse team as it steamrolled Yuba City, 17-1, before playing well in a rivalry contest against Chico.

Opening up against Yuba City, the locals got four goals from Gabe Beauchamp, a hat trick by Austin Griffiths and two tallies apiece from Rowan Hart and Diego Sandlin. Kyle Morse, Sean Gellen and Quinn Harty rounded out the scoring and helped the Davis defense nearly record a shutout.

In the win, Knights goalie Miles Herget saved three shots attempts while David Zingaro and Morse picked up the majority of the ground balls.

Next, in a game that had been circled on Davis and Chico’s calendar for months, the Knights battled before falling 6-4.

Gellen scored the first goal of the game and the defense of Liam Condon, Paul Buhlman, Etan Iacono and Enya Fujishima held down Chico to make it 1-0.

After the Knight surrendered a pair of second-period goals, Hart’s blistering shot tied the score at 2-2. Gellen and Hart added second half tallies, but it wasn’t enough.

Despite the loss, Herget was stellar, making seven stops, Gellen won seven of his nine face-offs and led Davis with seven ground balls. Condon added five.

Knights U13 boys

The Davis Knights’ U13 boys squad won both of its games last weekend against Pleasant Grove and Fair Oaks.

First, against Pleasant Grove, the Knights jumped out to a 4-0 lead, went ahead 8-2 at halftime and held on for a 14-4 victory. The opening flurry featured goals from Will Johnson, Jordan Murga, Nate Soeth and Justin Qvistgaard, who scored off a brilliant Ayush Malik assist. Soeth and Qvistgaard each completed hat tricks before intermission and the Davis defense was paced by goalie Wade Matern and strong play from Ryan Benjamin, Owen Musgrove, Kyle Difentorum and Alex Wold.

After the break, Soeth added three more scores to finish the contest with six goals and three assists, while Johnson, Murga and Casey Aikawa also tallied in the second half.

The locals then defeated the Fair Oaks Stampede, 15-5, behind Soeth’s seven goals and two assists. Luke Maffly had one of each, with Murga netting a hat trick and Aikawa and Qvistgaard adding two goals apiece. The Knights controlled possession thanks to the dominating defense of Bradley Kishaba, Sam McGlynn and Sam Blakewell, among others. Wade Matern and Jimmy McGlynn shared goalie duties, each making several outstanding plays.

Knights U11 boys

The Davis Knights’ U11 boys squad played El Dorado Hills tough but dropped a pair of Saturday road matches.

Nathan Ceppos scored both local goals against the Trojans Blue team, but the hosts pulled off a 9-2 win.

In a closer affair against the Trojans Gold, Tanner McNamara scored a hat trick and Taylor Vaughn added two Davis tallies but El Dorado edged the Knights, 6-5.

Knights U15 girls

The Davis Knights’ U15 girls team made a successful trip to Piedmont on Sunday, beating Walnut Creek, 12-4, before short-handed Skyline had to forfeit.

In the first contest, Davis’ Abbey Eaton won all three of her face-offs to set up Anna Kenyon, Ella Silverstein, Nicole Pugh and Chloe Nicole to score multiple goals. Single Knights tallies came from Camille Renaud, Maggie Whittemore and Tess McDaniel.

Local goalie Sophia Hahn had four saves in the victory.
