The Davis Catania, a U14 girls soccer team, got its season started officially when it took first place at the Tahoe Come Up For Air tournament last weekend, topping a field that included teams from as far away as Southern California and Portland, Ore.

The Catania won their first game, 4-0, against Ebbetts Pass Gold FC as A.J. Schiesari had a hat trick and Odessa Seng scored once.

Next up for the locals was a 1-1 tie with Rowland Heights with Jasmine Brayton scoring a late equalizer off a corner kick by Lexi Kornblum.

Seng’s tally was the only goal of a semifinal victory over the East Bay Eclipse, and Davis then played its championship contest opponent to a 2-2 tie forcing penalty kicks. After Schiesari and Kelly Ostrom scored the regular goals, the Catania prevailed, 4-2, in the shootout.

Throughout the tournament, Davis kept ball control with strong efforts from Nancy Avoce, Ivy Zhou, Meghan Bobrowsky, Lauren Wienker, Brayton, Anna Sincavage and Shailah and Kaelen Arreola-Bittner. Good defense from Lexi Kornblum, Anna Riesenberg, Sarah Thompson and Ostrom supported solid goalie work from Sincavage, Thompson and Schiesari.

Infinity soccer

The Davis Infinity, a U14 girls soccer team, won two of three games at the CUFA tournament last weekend, narrowly missing qualification for the championship game.

In their first game, the locals defeated the Martinez-Pleasant Hill United, 4-1. Khalida Pergher headed in a Kate Honig cross to open the Davis scoring before Honig tallied on a hard shot at the keeper. Before halftime, Emily Talbert curved a corner kick past the keeper to make it 3-0. After the break, Aliya Hirzy scored on a breakaway to make it 4-0 and the Infinity held on.

After dropping a 3-0 contest to the Sagebrush Chili Peppers, the locals stunned the eventual tournament champion South San Jose Aftershocks, 2-1. Pergher set up Hirzy for the first goal and, once the Aftershocks tied the match, Hirzy’s second score of the day was the game-winner.

Throughout the tournament, Davis got stellar defensive play from Julia Kelsch, Willa Moffatt and Addie O’Hanlon, and superb midfield play from Tarin McMorrow and Sophie Marie. Sophia DeRuntz, and Julia Alali consistently created attacking opportunities, while Infinity goalkeepers Alali, Sophia Sears and Pergher made numerous saves.

Warning soccer

The Davis Warning, a U12 girls soccer team, went 4-0 on their way to winning the CUFA championship.

The locals outscored their opponents 18-6 in the tournament, beating teams from Lake Tahoe and Nevada. Davis’ offensive explosion was led by Sasha Ballowe, Meghan Eisenman and Chella Grattet, who combined to score 16 of those goals.

Ballowe had a hat trick in the championship game before it went to penalty kicks, while Abigail Johnson, Gia Fanucchi and Alissa Casillas each provided offensive support all weekend.

The Warning’s aggressive defense was paced by Carolanne McLennan, Averi Brayton, Angela Herrera and Delaney and Kylie Seward, with goalie Alondra Arambula providing leadership and three times key stops in the shootout win over the Sagebrush Patriots to clinch the title.

Davis (34-3-1) won championships in four of the six tournaments it entered, using a balanced offensive attack — every player had a goal or assist — to outscored its opponents, 143-36.

Stampede soccer

The Davis Legacy Stampede, a U12 girls soccer team, made the semifinals of last weekend’s U.S. Club Regional Playoffs.

The opener matched the locals against the rival Modesto Ajax, with the game ending in a 2-2 tie. Jordan Davis scored the first goal off Anne Ayotte’s corner and Davis later set up Lily Bryne, who beat a defender for the equalizer.

The Stampede then opened the floodgates on the Bay Oaks Bombers, winning 7-0. Davis scored first for the locals, Grace Barger set up a pair of Alkex Hanna goals, Sydney Moore made a long shot and Vanessa Carrazco tallied from close range. Skye Shaffer put in the final two goals.

However, despite tough defense from Emily Speakman, Grace Carlson and Yasmeen Dmeiri, Davis was knocked out of the tourney, 2-0, by a physical Juventus Ragazze squad.

Heat soccer

The Davis Heat, a U17 girls soccer team, reached the championship round of the recent West Regional National Cup XII.

The Heat defeated the Turlock Tornadoes, 2-1, in their first encounter with Sophia Hernandez scoring both goals off assists from Olivia Haass and Renee Schuman. Outstanding goalkeeping by Christina Roeckl-Navazio and stellar defense from Melissa Teuber, Madison Nicholas, Mikayla Vang and Annie Leck helped Davis secure the win.

The locals then got past Boca 3-1, scoring three straight times after their opponents struck first. Kristen Ward equalized for Davis — the first of her two tallies — off an assist from Emily King then Sofia Evanoff outran the Boca defenders to put the Heat ahead.

Davis won its third game, 4-2, over the Galt Heat as Evanoff scored twice and Hernandez added a goal and an assist.

That win put the locals into the championship contest, where the Diablo Football Club had just enough to edge the Heat. Great efforts from Davis’ Alexia Moore, Vanessa Arellano and Kaitlyn Wagner nearly brought the team back but Schuman was the only local to find the net.

Milan soccer

The Davis AC Milan, a U14 boys soccer, started its season with an impressive run to the semifinals of the National Cup Western Regionals held in Davis the weekend before last.

The locals beat Stockton, 2-1, in their first game as Cameron Peuse connected on a pass from Camilo Rodriguez and later, when a tie seemed inevitable, Peuse put in the game-winning penalty kick.

Falling behind quickly and playing short-handed because of a red card, Davis stayed close to the Cal Odyssey with goals by Sam Elmwood — off a perfect free kick from Jovanni Morales —  and Santiago Moreno. Then AC Milan’s Ricky Gonzales tied the contest with a nice shot and Peuse’s goal won the game, 4-3, in the final seconds.

AC Milan then used goals from Rodriguez and Peuse to win a match against the L.A. Lazer, using strong contributions from Dan Shuman, Isaiah Alba, Matteo Sorrentino, Kyle Cuvelier, Jaleel Dmeiri, Ryan Strong and Buddhika Ratnasiri.

A rematch with Stockton in the semifinals saw local scoring come from Peuse and Rodriguez but the 2-2 contest went into a shootout. Despite several saves by Davis keeper Roberto Ortiz, and scores by Shuman, Morales, and Rodriguez, Stockton prevailed.

AquaMonsters swimming

On Saturday, the Davis AquaMonsters swim team, used a strong relay performance to defeat the Sacramento Stingrays, 434-378.

The AquaMonster girls quartets posted wins at 6U, 7-8, 9-10 and 11-12, while the boys captured 6U, 7-8 and 11-12.

The largest margin victory came in the 11-12 girls relay, where Davis’ Cody Hargadon, Elle Motekaitis, Makena Wahl and Piper Hechtl outdistanced the second-place finisher by more than 15 seconds.

Several individuals also scored big points for the locals as Natalie Bercutt’s three 9-10 age group wins were good for 15 points,and Joshua Thompson knocked more than six seconds off his personal best to take first place in the 13-14 100 individual medley.

Almost every AquaMonster set at least one new personal record including Jake Robben, who did it in both 7-8 freestyle and backstroke events.
