Youth roundup: Lightning strike at Stanford soccer tournament

From page B3 | September 04, 2014 |

The Davis Elite FC Lightning, a U12 boys soccer team, grabbed another medal late last month after going undefeated to finish in third place at the Stanford Summer Classic.

Davis faced stiff competition throughout the tournament, and opened with a 2-1 win over the Juventus Nighthawks behind two goals from Conner Clark.

Following a scoreless tie with the Mountain View Raptors, the Lightning tied the Evolution FC, 3-3, to send the locals into the consolation. There, they got a rematch with the Evolution, and got their revenge. Davis won the game 6-2.

Throughout the tournament, the Lightning defense got strong performances from Jacob Perez, Nate McAllister, Ethan Schroeder, Josh Faith, Carson Whitehead and goalie Jason Inouye in giving up just five goals in four matches.

The local midfield featured the prowess of Keenan Busse (one goal, one assist), Jaiden Temple (three assists), Keane Deas and Jason Henkel, while Davis striker Cavan Schraner (three goals, three assists) helped Clark, who led the way with seven goals.

Stampede soccer

The Davis Legacy Stampede, a U13 girls soccer team, showcased their all-around dominance last weekend, reaching the finals of the United Cup in San Juan Capistrano.

In allowing just four regular goals in six matches, Davis defenders Yasmeen Dmeiri, Grace Carlson, Grace Barger, Leah Eccles, Allie Belafsky and Skye Shaffer suffocated opposing offenses with constant hustle, intelligent ball movement and composure, while keeper McKenna Lutzker came up big in every game, making hard saves and distributing the ball to set up counterattacks.

Midfielders Anne Ayotte, Lindsey Vernau and Sydney Moore added further support while controlling play across the middle.

The Stampede started with a 1-1 draw against the San Diego Arsenal FC — Dmeiri scoring the lone goal — before pounding the host United FC, 7-0.

In the win, Ayotte started things off with a blast from 25 yards out, Lily Byrne set up Jordan Davis to make it 2-0, then Ainsley Carroll tallied twice. Later, Byrne found Sophie Karperos for a goal, Davis scored on a rebound and the locals’ final tally came on a nifty series of one-touch passes from Julyana Lara to Vernau to Byrne.

In a see-saw last qualifying contest, two goals each by Byrne and Davis helped the Stampede sink the San Diego Rebels, 5-3.

Three more tallies from Davis helped the locals past Downey FC in the quarterfinals and the Slammers in the semis, setting up a championship contest against the top-ranked Anaheim Surf. There, the two teams played to a scoreless tie and, despite shots made by Davis and Vernau, the Surf won in a shootout.

Youth hoops tourney

Youths are encouraged to play in a free basketball tournament beginning at 10 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 27, at the Woodland Community & Senior Center, 2001 East St. in Woodland.

Players age 11 and older can pre-register their own team of two to three youths and one to two adults by Friday, Sept. 19, to secure a spot. Many of the adult players are volunteers from multiple law enforcement agencies, so youth players also can register on their own to be placed on a team.
