The Davis Blue Devil roller hockey club’s varsity- and JV-level teams both played well at a tournament in Stockton on Dec. 1

The Devil varsity squad led the way by going 3-0 to remain undefeated for the season.

In the locals’ first game, they dispatched Sonora, 4-0, behind two goals from Ryan Kowta and one each from Tyler Schafer and Caleb Hermle. Joe Blakewell added an assist, while goalie Nic Leacox was perfect in the net, saving all 35 shots he saw.

Next, Davis dominated Stockton, 5-1. Goals in that game came from Schafer, Hermle, Danny Kumata and Ricky Pacciorini, who tallied twice. Pacciorini and Blakewell each added two assists while Kumata dished out one and Leacox was 17-for-18 stopping shots.

In their last game of the day, the Blue Devils got goals from Hermle (two), Kumata and Blakewell to power them to a 4-1 win over Chico. Leacox stopped 24 of 25 Chico attempts to finish the tournament with a save percentage of 97.

The JV-level squad also came home from Stockton with a winning record as it went 2-1.

Even the loss featured a strong performance as Sam Blakewell, Zachary Creinin and Daniel Jenkins handled the scoring in a 5-4 loss to Chico. Dylan Lee, Max Muller and Brandon Pacciorini (two) had assists in the opening contest.

In their next game, a 4-3 win over Stockton, the Devils got one goal each from Lee, Jenkins, Brandon Pacciorini and  Sam Blakewell.

Sam Blakewell then had a hat trick, while Lee put in two more as the locals finished the day with a 5-2 victory over Livermore.

Goalie Muller finished the tournament with a save percentage of 91.

UCD Aquatics swim club

Six swimmers from UCD Aquatics, a new club swim team that formed out of the Davis Aquamonsters, competed at the Neptune Swimming Holiday Festival in Tempe, Ariz., last weekend.

In Friday’s preliminary heats, 10 of the 11 local swims were good enough to advance. The prelims were highlighted by Davis 17-year-old Colten Montgomery’s 50-yard freestyle performance. Montgomery’s time of 20.22 not only set a new meet record, but also broke the Sierra Nevada Swimming 17-18 age group benchmark. The Sierra Nevada record was previous held by Davis’ Jake Allen, who went on to swim at Stanford, where he helped a 200 free relay team set an American record in 2011.

The championship heats at the Neptune meet, swum in the brisk Arizona evening, featured several other good swims by Davis athletes.

Standout breaststroker Juji Chan, 16, took second place in the 100 breast (1:09.98) while the youngest member of the squad, 15-year-old Nikki Adkins, dropped two seconds from her prelim swim to take seventh in the 200 backstroke (2:16.38).

In addition, local swimmer Alice Renaud took fifth in the women’s 50 free, touching in a career-best 25.21. Montgomery’s 20.71 was good for second place in the 50 free final and Davis’ Wyatt Millstone, 17, and Ben Hedman, 15, contributed in the 200 free and 50 free, and the 200 back.

Barcelona soccer

The Davis Barcelona, a U15 boys soccer team, won two matches last weekend, including a satisfying 2-0 victory over longtime rival Sac United, to open NorCal Winter League play on Saturday.

Sam Curran provided both local tallies in that game, while Ben Tang, Luis Ramos, Christopher Johnson, Jackson Looney and Joaquin Pierce also kept up the offensive pressure.

Barcelona keeper Matt Hill kept his goal unsullied with help from defenders Eliot Williams, Michael Vernau, Andrew Raya, Alex Hill and Brandon Hein. Davis also controlled the midfield behind the strong play of Almog Fishman, Marco and Jorge Rocha-Figueroa, Tomas Echiburu and Jonathan Lovely.

On Sunday, Barcelona beat Napa, 3-0, in a State Cup seeding match. Tang had one goal, while Vernau added two, both on headers off crosses from Curran. Barcelona overcame the biting cold weather to possess the ball with confidence, and far longer than their opponents.

Field hockey club

The Mad Cow Field Hockey Club’s spring season, which will include U16 and U19 squads as well as a new Developmental Program for athletes in grades six through eight, will run from January to April.

The club’s focus is to teach and develop players’ stick skills, knowledge of the game, sportsmanship and overall fitness while fostering the athletes’ enthusiasm for field hockey. This is accomplished through practices — both indoors and outdoors on turf — scrimmages and participation in numerous tournaments throughout the spring season.

The club is based in Yolo County and welcomes athletes from other all areas.

Younger players, ages 8-12, can sign up for the Mad Calves program. The cost for that program is $200, while players on the U19, U16 and U14 squads must pay a fee of $475. The fee covers the cost of all practice sessions, equipment and field rental, uniforms, T-shirts, coaching fees, tournament fees and lunch and snacks at tournaments.

All players must complete and turn in registration and waiver forms before they can participate in practices or games.

For more information or to get the forms, email coach Sandie Marotti-Huckins at sandie@marottiperformancegroup.com.
