Youth roundup: Great start for DWPC eighth-graders

From page B2 | October 11, 2012 |

The Davis Water Polo Club’s eighth-grade and under boys team started its season with a bang, winning three consecutive Pacific Zone Fall League matches on Sunday at Paly High in Palo Alto.

DPWC struck quickly in the first game, scoring on its first three possessions against Burlingame on its way to a 10-1 win. Two of the early goals came from local center Josh Orrick, a newcomer to the squad.

Next on the docket was rival Marin County SHAQ, with Davis again rolling to victory, 13-7. The local defense led the way in the first half, as goalkeeper Garrett Dawson was stellar against a high-powered Marin offense.

On the other side of the pool, Cameron Wright, Orrick and defender Nick Masson each found the net to help DWPC take an 8-2 halftime advantage, and strong play from Matt Blackwell, George Van Vorhis, Nate Burmas and Peter Blumberg helped close out the victory.

The Davis players barely had a chance to get a drink before jumping right back in the pool for the final match against DACA (Cupertino). Still, DWP prevailed, 15-9, behind great defense and timely scoring. Daniel Alvarez and Steven Csaposs contributed numerous steals and hit several key outside shots, and Wright exploded for seven goals.

Heat soccer

In a well-played U16 girls soccer game, the Davis Heat couldn’t quite keep up with the top-ranked Santa Clara Sporting, falling 2-0.

Local defenders Renee Schuman and Hannah Thompson kept the Heat close by breaking up Santa Clara’s passing game, while Davis midfielders Kristen Ward, Madison Nicholas and Alexia Moore added solid support in the middle.

In the first half, the Heat forced the Sporting to play mostly in the middle of the field, permitted no corner kicks and allowed only three outside shots by Santa Clara, all of which were easily stopped by Heat keeper Christina Roeckl-Navazio. Unfortunately for the locals, a shot by Sophia Evanoff went wide and the two teams ended the first half in a scoreless tie.

Davis had more good opportunities after intermission, with Olivia Haass, Suleikha Sutter, Sophia Hernandez and Mikayla Vang all putting pressure on the keeper.

After several spectacular saves by Roeckl-Navazio, the Sporting put in two late goals. The stingy defense of Kaitlyn Wagner, Melissa Teuber, Jaha McClean and Brooke Rosenblum held the score there, but the Heat could not come from behind.

Stampede soccer

The Davis Legacy Stampede, a U11 girls soccer team, defeated Placer United, 4-0, and tied Loomis, 1-1, in a successful weekend at home.

In the NorCal league game against Placer, Anne Ayotte scored first on a Jordan Davis assist and then Ayotte returned the favor to Davis for the second goal. The two second-half tallies came on a long-range blast from Skye Schaffer and a shot by Davis off a corner kick from Jasmeen Dmeiri.

The Stampede fell behind early against a tough Loomis squad but stayed close through the second half, when a close-range shot by Davis tied things up.

Davis Tsunami

The Davis Tsunami, a U10 girls fastpitch softball team competing in NorCal Winterball, played a doubleheader with the American River Orange Crush on Sunday at Slide Hill Park, tying the first game and getting a 12-11 win in the nightcap.

In the 10-10 opener, Surina Beal and Bella Hyder shared circle duties and were backed at the plate by LaSiya Earnest, who had three hits. In addition, Beal and Heather Breckner combined to score five runs, while Earnest — with two unassisted outs — Layla Fitch and Madison Rutherford shined in the field.

Fitch and Rutherford worked from the circle in Game 2, striking out a total of four Crush batters. In the win, Fitch, Maya Zingaro and Earnest each scored two runs and Beal, Shelby Harry and Lizzy Jones contributed key hits.

Pee Wee basketball

The city of Davis is now taking registration for its Pee Wee Basketball Program, which is designed for first-time players in first and second grades.

Basketball fundamentals, teamwork, sportsmanship and fun will be emphasized at three sessions, all held on Saturdays at the DHS gym. The cost is $55 per child and includes a T-shirt.

The first session offered is Saturday through Nov. 3, from 10 a.m. to noon. Two sessions (10 am. to noon and 1 to 3 p.m.) will run Nov. 10 through Dec. 8.
