Youth roundup: Davis gets two varsity wins at rugby 7s tourney

From page B2 | July 17, 2014 |

The Davis Rugby 7’s program played in its fourth tournament of the summer on Sunday in Dixon, with the varsity squad posting two wins in four games, including a victory over the eventual first-place squad.

That triumph over Bowling Green in round-robin play featured Michal Goodison scoring a 1-yard try on a quick tap in the second half to provide the winning 17-14 margin. On the day, Davis’ varsity team got strong performances from Marvin Grant — who made two long runs for tries — as well as Ben Gore, Anthony Pedroia, Yared Haile, Evan Sierras and Goodison, who converted 6 of 8 conversion kicks on the day.

The highlight of the tournament for the local JV-level squad was its first win of the season, a 17-7 victory over Jesuit. In that game, Eben Kohn found a small gap in the defense and sped his way to a 30-yard run to the goal line for a key score.

Throughout the tourney, Davis’ JV crew was paced by Jesse Keenan, Charley Stevenson and Reese Peterson, while Kohn finished the day with two long runs for tries and a successful conversion kick.

Heat soccer

The Davis Heat, a U19 girls soccer team, reached the championship of the College Showcase held last weekend in Davis.

The locals opened with a 2-2 tie against the Fresno Cencal Cosmos, a team they would meet again in the title match. On the opener, Kristin Ward had Davis’ first tally with a great shot over the keeper, then Sofia Hernandez tied the game with a penalty kick in the final moments.

Next up for the Heat was a 4-3 loss to the Nevada Elite.

Ward scored first for Davis but Nevada scored the next two goals to take the lead. A great play by Brooke Rosenblum led to Hernandez’s equalizer as Rosenblum attacked on a breakaway run, drew out the Elite keeper then captured the attention of two defenders. Her shot was saved by the diving keeper, but Hernandez tapped the rebound into an open net.

Nevada again scored two quick goals, going ahead 4-2, before the Heat started to fight back behind the ball possession of Renee Schuman, Kailtlyn Wagner, Mikayla Vang, Nikki Morales and Claire Buhlman. Eventually, their efforts proved successful as Olivia Haass converted Hernandez’s corner kick to make it 4-3, but a last-minute shot by Vanessa Arellano couldn’t find the net for the tie.

The locals bounced back to beat the Legends White, 2-1, on goals from Hernandez and Sofia Evanoff, reaching the tournament semifinals. There, Davis posted another 2-1 win — this time over the Cerritos CDA Slammers — as tallies from Hernandez and Alexia Moore sent the Heat to the championship contest.

Facing the Cencal Cosmos again, Davis was put on the defensive early and even strong play from keepers Devan Reische and Christina Roeckl-Navazio couldn’t prevent the locals from falling behind 2-0. Heat players Emily King, Haass and Hernandez provided offensive pressure, but not enough to find the goal.
