Youth roundup: Harper handles Holmes for YCAL soccer title

The Harper Junior High seventh- and eighth-grade girls soccer team capped an undefeated season by defending its YCAL championship at the recent league tournament.

After a 5-0-1 regular season, Harper opened the year-end YCAL event by beating Douglass (Woodland), 4-1. In that match, Julia Curtis and Tiffany Miras each scored twice for the locals. A defensive highlight came when keeper Carly Simpson moved out of the goal to make a save, Douglass regained possession and Harper defender Lisa Howard moved in front of the cage to stop another attempt.

That was followed by a 5-1 win over Lee (Woodland), to set up a championship contest against local rival Holmes.

Against Lee, Curtis and Miras matched their two-goal performances and forward Alex Diamant had the other Harper tally. Strong defense from Leah Guerrero, Sanjana Bajwa, Alondra Arambula and Howard held the Woodland squad to one score.

Holmes’ Josie Baca opened the finale with a goal before Harper’s two-headed monster — Curtis and Miras — each found the net and single tallies from Alyssa Lengtat and Diamant rounded out Harper’s 4-1 win.

Simpson was strong in goal all tournament for the champions, while other contributions came from Odessa Seng, Taylor Trinidad, Jasmine LaVu, Mia Villegas and Emily Eigenheer.

Davis Rugby Club

The Davis Blue Devil Rugby Club’s Silver team ran its record to 7-2 with a 59-0 romp against the visiting Pleasanton on Saturday at Ron & Mary Brown Stadium. In the victory, the speed and execution of the local back line and the strength of Davis’ brutish forward pack wore down the Cavaliers.

For the Devils, Oscar Sepulveda executed his patented 8-man weak side pick for two of his three scores, while fly half Quinn Williams distributed his slick passes to a variety of backs for several other tallies. Locals Brendan MacDonald, Ahmari Hayes and Wally Perez all posted tries that resulted from well-executed back-line movements.

In addition, Davis scrum half Tyler Roberts deftly fielded an up-and-under kick then blew through the Pleasanton back line for a try of his own and Derek Pleasants took a Williams skip pass, burst 40 meters then off-loaded beautifully to Hayes for the try. Williams rounded out the scoring with a long jaunt around the corner with Pleasants converting the kick, his seventh in eighth tries.

Dylan Newsome, Josh Greenfield, Reid Blankenship and Brian Stabenfeldt all hit the rucks hard to help the Blue Devils control the loose play.

Earlier on Saturday, the Davis Bronze team took an early lead before visiting Pleasanton B bounced back to prevail, 69-19. For the locals, fly half Tristan Tadano picked up a score and center Jacob Wright got his first try of the season before forward Anthony Pedroia bullied his way in from 10 meters. Devil Michal Goodison converted two of the tries and kicked effectively all game, while Ben Gore, Dominique Krogstadt, David Kim and Goodison worked hard around the rucks.

NorCal Saxons hockey

The Davis/Woodland Saxons, a U18 squad that is part of the NorCal Extreme Hockey Club, went undefeated in round-robin play at last weekend’s North American Roller Hockey Championship tournament in San Jose. With the strong performance, the locals earned the opportunity to compete at a July event in Toronto.

Despite playing the entire two-day event with only one substitute on the bench, the Saxons shut out the Reno Top Shelf (3-0), the Antioch Jokers (3-0) and the San Jose Mustangs (8-0) before reaching the semis with a 5-3 win over the Bay Area Elite.

A competitive semifinal matchup with the Silicon Valley Quakes ended in a 6-6 tie, and NorCal’s short bench finally caught up with it in a 7-6 overtime loss.

The Saxon offense featured balanced scoring with Caleb Hermle’s eight goals and three assists leading the way. Also for the locals,  Danny Kumata netted seven goals and five assists, Brian Varley had four and five, Paul Hermle registered two and four, Jacob Muller got two and three, while Joe Blakewell tallied three and dropped two dimes. On the other end of the ice, NorCal’s Eddie Berlin was brilliant, earning Top Goalie honors by turning away 90 of 93 shots, a remarkable 97 percent.
