Bouncing back from a pair of tough losses, the Davis Hoops Wildcats’ 12U Black basketball team won the final game of the tournament to take third place in the black division of the New Year’s Tip Off in  Rocklin last weekend.

In the event opener, the West Coast All-Stars were too much for the locals, winning 42-13. Collin Yee led Davis with four points and five assists, while Rayan Tilmatine added 10 rebounds and two blocks. Henry Siegler, Max Seed and Will Ziegler each added a bucket in the loss.

The Wildcats struggled again in Game 2, falling to the Reno Ballers Gold, 60-17. Davis got seven points from Yee, who also had three steals and a block, and eight rebounds and three blocks from Kayden Hoal. Tilmatine contributed four points and two boards for the locals.

Finding their stride in the last game, the Wildcats used an excellent shooting performance to defeat the Hurricanes, 52-43. Despite a 29-17 halftime lead, the locals clung to a slim 38-36 advantage late the game, but held on.

Hoal dominated in the paint with 18 points and eight rebounds, while Lance Prussel took care of the outside shooting, making a trio of 3-pointers to finish with 13 points and three assists. Yee was strong on both ends of the floor, scoring nine points and playing good defense with Siegler (six points and two rebounds), Erick Lengtat (two points) and Zielger (two points) also contributing.

Wildcast 12U White hoops

The Davis Hoops Wildcats’ 12U White basketball team took second place in the white division of last weekend’s New Year’s tournament.

The locals clinched the silver medal with a 30-6 win over the Vista Talons in the final matchup of the tourney. A team effort — paced by Charlie Karagosian, Jake Goidell, Max Seed and Will Ziegler — was the key to victory.

In the opening game, the Reno Ballers White edged the Wildcats, 29-26, despite a four-point, six-rebound effort from Ethan Ramos. Karagosian also pulled down a couple of boards for Davis to go with his three points.

In a 37-21 loss to Junior Hillmen in the second game, Goidell scored two points and had a steal, Seed nailed a 3-pointer and Erick Lengtat scored four points and had three rebounds.

Blue Devil varsity hockey

The Blue Devil varsity-level club roller hockey team wrapped up its season by taking third place at the Sierra Inline Hockey League Championship at its home rink in Woodland.

The Devils opened with a 4-2 loss to the Chico Firebirds. Danny Kumata got both goals with assists by Jacob Muller and Joe Blakewell, while defenseman Ryan Kowta took several runs at the enemy net to keep the Firebirds’ goalie guessing.

In Game 2, the locals posted a 4-3 victory over their home-rink rivals from Woodland. Kumata scored two more goals in the win, with Blakewell and Muller each tallying once and Dailey Glander providing steady defense.

A close semifinal matchup saw the Blue Devil fall to the Antioch Bucks, 2-1, with Muller scoring the lone goal. Daniel Rooney provided outstanding defensive support and forwards Teddy Xiao and Ricky Pacciorini continually pressed the talented Bucks goalie. Holding his own all tournament long, local goalie Eddie Berlin made 79 stops with a save percentage of 90.

Blue Devil JV hockey

The Blue Devil junior varsity-level club roller hockey squad got off to a good start in the SIHL championship event, eventually taking second.

Opening against Antioch, the locals got a hat trick from Sam Blakewell and another goal from Jack Skoog in a 4-0 shutout. Assists came from Max Landy, Dylan Lee and Jack Shields.

Following a 5-1 loss to the Chico Firebirds — during which Victor Valdez-Chabot played great defense to keep the Blue Devils close — the locals trounced the Livermore Vipers, 6-0. That win, which came courtesy of hat tricks from Jack Skoog and Blackwell, off assists from Cole Skoog, Shields and Landy — but the Devils into the championship game.

But after a long day of hockey, the locals could not change the outcome in a finals rematch with Chico. Lee scored the only Blue Devil goal off an assist from Shields.

Throughout the tournament, local goalie Max Muller was at the top of his game, saving 88 percent of the shots he saw in round-robin play.
