The Davis Knights’ U15 boys lacrosse team posted two more wins last weekend, taking down the El Dorado Hill Trojans (12-6) on Saturday, then the Walnut Creek Warriors (10-0) on Sunday.

In the first outing, the Trojans actually took an early lead before the Davis defense took over behind a bundle of takeaways by Ethan Iacono and David Zingaro. The Knights offense then took over as Rowan Hart scored five goals, Seam Gellen added a hat trick with two assists and Austin Griffiths tallied twice. Single goals came from Aiden Mager and Kyle Morse, who joined Gellen in dominating face-offs.

On Sunday, Davis held the Warriors scoreless as Iacono and Zingaro posted four takeways each, and Paul Buhlman and Enya Fujishima notched two goals apiece. Iacono added a goal, as did Diego Sandlin. Krishna Gorlick and Lucas Brown picked up ground balls to keep play on the Knights’ offensive end.

Local goalie Miles Herget had three saves in each game.

Knights U15 girls

The Davis Knights’ U15 girls team pulled away in the second half to defeat the Lamorinda Extreme, 13-6, in its season opener.

Davis’ Nicole Pugh dominated from the first draw, scoring four of her eight goals in the first half, with Camille Renaud and Chloe Nicolet also tallying as the locals led 6-4 at the break.

After intermission, the Knights defense kicked into high gear as goalie Sophie Hahn was like a wall. Nicolet, Darby Maguire and Maggie Whittemore each scored once in the second half, with assists from Kailey Smith and Ella Silverstein.

Knights U13 White

The Davis Knights’ U13 boys White team held off Walnut Creek, 6-5, on Sunday.

Nate Soeth was the offensive star for the Davis, as he scored the first three goals of the game to give the Knights a lead they would not relinquish. Soeth finished with five goals on the day.

With the locals up 3-0, Walnut Creek battled back with a pair of third-period goals before Davis’ Bradley Kishaba answered with a tally of his own. Two more Soeth goals had the Knights up 6-2 and a late charge by WC was too little, too late.

Jordan Murga, Luke Maffly and Justin T. Qvistgaard played strong defense for Davis in front of  goalie Wade Matern, who made several saves.

Knights U11 boys

The Davis Knights’ U11 boys teams split games with identical 7-1 scores last weekend, highlighted by a win over Walnut Creek on Sunday.

In Saturday’s loss, the game was scoreless at halftime as local goalie Mason Johnston had two big saves. Caden Velasquez scored the only Davis goal in the second half.

The offense came much faster in Walnut Creek as the Knights dominated time of possession and played air-tight defense that included aggressive stick-checking.

Tanner McNamara, Taylor Vaughn, Lucas Griffiths and Cameron Duncan provided the Davis scoring, and Knights goalies Gerad Lichtenhan and Johnston made four saves each.
