The Davis Insanity, a U12 girls soccer team, split a pair of games in the Bay Area on Saturday, first dominating the Pleasant Hill Intensity, 4-1, then falling 3-1 to the Mt. Diablo Heat.

In the opener, strong goaltending from Carmen Saez and Katie Stachowicz prevented Pleasant Hill from capitalizing on several early breakaways.

Gia Fanucchi, Averi Brayton and Katrina Haws provided scoring for the locals with Abigail Johnson assisting on three of the goals and Insanity players Julia Albertson, Caroline Duncan and Maya Wood keeping the offensive pressure on throughout the game. Meanwhile, Angela Herrera and Aedan Gravely played solid defense and kept Intensity from breaking through.

In its second game, Davis played the tough Heat squad to a scoreless tie at halftime, using strong goaltending and defensive pressure by Haws and Brayton to hold off a relentless attack.

Mt. Diablo scored two quick tallies in the third quarter, but Haws answered with a beautiful goal after she collected a long punt by keeper Saez in the fourth period. The locals, however, could not complete the comeback.

Legacy 98 soccer

The Davis Legacy 98, a U17 boys soccer team, hosted the Sacramento United 97 for a State Cup preliminary match in gorgeous weather on Sunday. The two teams each played great defense and the contest eventually ended in a 0-0 tie.

Despite keeping possession with a dominating back line and using clever midfield passing to advance the ball for excellent chances up front, the locals couldn’t find the net.

Davis had at least six quality, first-half attempts, including shots by Denilzon Puentes, Ethan Hessl and Elgin Lovell and a one-timer by Giovanni Aguilar off an excellent feed from Pablo Guarzino. In addition, Daniel Perez’s speed and tackling, Francis Avoce’s great ball distribution, and solid defense from Legacy 98’s Matthew Rowen and Kyle Fix kept the game close.

In the physical second half, important saves by keeper Salvador Chavez and excellent shots on goal by Sebastian Gonzalez and Lovell were the local highlights.

NorCal Swish basketball

The NorCal Swish, a fifth/sixth-grade girls basketball team with players from Dixon and Davis, played well in a pair of tournament games at the Hardwood Palace in Rocklin last weekend.

Cailin Bloom nailed a 3-pointer to begin the opening contest against Folsom, as the locals took a 7-0 lead but could not hang on in a six-point loss. NorCal saw eight different players grab rebounds and the team posted six steals in the game.

The next Swish matchup was another close loss to the Lady Pride, in which the locals improved their passing and rebounding and notched eight steals.

Throughout the tournament, NorCal got strong performances from Amaralyn Ewey, Brooke Imamoto, Cate Scheuring, Grace Scheuring, Surina Beal, Alex Machado, Ingra Simpson, Sam Hendrix and Samantha Bloom.

Baseball academy

Using several professional baseball players and scouts to help with assessment, the Davis Baseball Academy will have tryouts for its U13/14 squad on Saturday from 10 a.m. to noon at the Davis High varsity field.

Players who are 13 years old as of April 30, 2014 — or younger — are eligible for the tryout, which will determine the level at which that athlete should compete. As of Aug. 31, the team will compete at the 14-year-old level.

Players will be evaluated by a group that includes coach Kevin Keefer as well as pros with local ties, including minor-league players Mike Turay, Ben Eckels and Ray Hernandez and Milwaukee Brewers scout Justin McCray.

If there are enough players, two teams will be assembled.

Tryouts for younger teams — players ages 10 through 12 — will come next month and will be posted at www.davisbaseballacademy.com.

For more information, contact Keefer at 916-717-1914 or [email protected].
