The local defensive effort started with the play of goalkeepers Gerard Lichtenhan and Mason Johnstone, who split time and each made two saves. When Lichtenhan was between the pipes. Johnstone continued to contribute on offense, scoring one of the Davis goals.

With their transition game flummoxing Folsom, the Knights also got a hat trick from Tanner McNamara, two goals from Caden Velasquez and Cameron Duncan, and goals from Nathan Ceppos and Lucas Griffiths.

Knights U13 White

The Davis Knights’ U13 boys White team exploded for a 17-1 victory over the Gold Country Stampede on Saturday in Grass Valley.

Davis’ Nate Soeth scored four goals before intermission, while teammate William M. Johnson had a hat trick in the first quarter. Single goals by Sam Blakewell, Casey Aikawa, Faustino Villarreal-Blozis, Jordan Murga, Bradley Kishaba, Justin T.

The Davis Knights’ U15 girls team split two close games on Saturday at Playfields Park, falling 7-6 to the El Dorado Hills Trojans before Nicole Pugh scored two late goals to send the locals past the Alameda Attack, 13-12

In the loss, Davis actually outshot EDH but had trouble converting its opportunities. Still, tallies by Pugh and Chloe Nicolet kept the Knights within one in the first half.

After the break, strong goalie play from Sophia Hahn and Sabreen Rashmawi along with two goals each from Pugh and Maggie Whittemore had the locals in it the whole way.

Knights U15 boys

The Davis Knights’ U15 boys squad ran all over Grass Valley, 22-4 as the local defense forced 11 turnovers, setting up an offense that was moving the ball well.
