The Davis Knights’ U15 boys lacrosse team won a pair of games as it opened the 2013 season last weekend

First, the locals stopped the Sacramento Stingers, 9-1, behind three goals each from Rowan Hart, Sean Gellen and Aidan Mager. Davis goalie Miles Herget contributed three saves, while defenseman Liam Condon had nine ground balls with Paul Buhlman and David Zingaro added five apiece. Matt Kelly captured three face-offs for the Knights, Kyle Morse won two and Ethan Iacono secured three takeaways.

Then, in an 8-6 victory over Fair Oaks, Gellen scored four goals and Hart had a hat trick along with an assist to Quinn Harty for his first goal of the season. Austin Griffiths provided offensive pressure for Davis, while Diego Sandlin had two key ground balls. Herget posted five saves for the locals, who never trailed in the win.

Knights U11 lacrosse

The Davis Knights’ U11 boys squad played tough in a Saturday doubleheader against two teams from Pleasanton, tying the Blast 6-6 then falling 7-4 to the Cyclones.

In the closely contested opener at Playfields Park, Davis was clinging to a one-goal lead before the visitors scored late to secure the tie. Five different Knights tallied, with Lucas Griffiths finding the net twice. Single goals came from Taylor Vaughn, Nathan Ceppos, Mason Johnstone and Tanner McNamara, while goalies Gerad Lichtenhan and Johnstone combined for three saves.

Battling fatigue in their second game, the locals played well but ran out of gas in a 7-4 loss to the Cyclones. Vaughn had two goals for Davis with McNamara and Caden Velasquez each tallying once.

Knights goalies Nathan Ceppos and Max Villareal kept the game close with five saves between them.
