The Davis Knights’ U11 boys lacrosse squad used a strong all-around performance to top host Folsom, 9-7, in a recent encounter.

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.

Dominating from the start, the locals scored 15 goals before halftime, then concentrated on playing outstanding defense the rest of the way.

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. Qvistgaard , Ayush Malik, Soeth and Luke Maffly helped the Knights to their huge halftime advantage.

Meanwhile, behind strong defensive performances from Sam McGlynn, Kyle Difuntorum, Blakewell, Kishaba, Murga and goalie Owen Musgrove, Davis gave up one goal early on and shut the Stampede down the rest of the way.

Knights U15 girls

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.

The Knights’ offense was more efficient against Alameda as Pugh scored three quick tallies, part of her seven-goal performance. Darby Maguire and Nicolet each contributed hat tricks to the local attack and Hanah Wyman posted an assist.

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.

First-year Knight Austin Griffiths led all scorers with six goals, followed by Rowan Hart with four, and hat tricks from Aidan Mager and Sean Gellen. Quinn Harty and Kyle Morse had two goals each for Davis, while single tallies came from Diego Sandlin, Gabriel Beauchamp and Ethan Iacono.

Local goalies Miles Herget and David Zingaro were sharp, saving two shots each, and Iacono led the defense with seven ground balls. In addition, Gellen and Morse controlled the middle of the field, winning the vast majority of their face-offs and grounders.
