Youth roundup: Maffly and Koeberer each score twice in Knights U15 lacrosse loss

By From page B2 | April 24, 2014

The Davis Knights’ U15 boys lacrosse team traveled to Lafayette and ran into a revenge-minded Lamorinda Shock squad that beat the locals, 10-6.

At first it looked like it would be a repeat of Davis’ win over the Shock earlier this season as Nate Soeth gave the Knights a 1-0 lead.

After Lamorinda answered with three straight goals, Luke Maffly scored off a pass from Soeth to make it 3-2 after one quarter.

Local goals from Cole Koeberer (two), Bradley Kishaba and Maffly, as well as strong defense from Ethan Iacono (five takeaways) and goalie Wade Matern kept the game close until the fourth period. But the Shock went on a late flurry to capture the victory.

Stampede soccer

The Davis Legacy Stampede, a U13 girls soccer team, suffered a pair of losses to open the NorCal Premiere spring season but bounced back in a big way with wins in its past three contests.

The locals defeated the American River Freedom, 2-1, before shutting out Sacramento United (3-0) and Placer United (2-0).

A rematch with Placer is set for Saturday.
