The NorCal Extreme hockey club sent 16U and 14U teams to the AAU Junior Olympics Qualifier earlier this month in Antioch.

The local 16U squad won four of its five games, losing only to Bender Nation in a 3-1 championship-game decision.

NorCal opened with a win over the San Jose Tsunami Red (4-3), and routed the Revision Revolution (7-0) and the San Jose Junior Sharks (6-1). A 4-1 semifinal victory over the Silicon Valley Quakes sent the Extreme to the finals.

For the tournament, Joe Blakewell led the locals with seven goals and three assists, while Sam Blakewell netted six goals and handed out three assists. NorCal’s Caleb Hermle helped carry the defense, adding three goals and five assists, Ricky Pacciorini scored three goals with two assists, and the rest of the offense came from Ryan Kowta (one goal, three assists), Dylan Lee (one goal, one assist), Henry Campbell (one goal, two assists) and Max Landy.

Dalton Byard’s defense was strong in front of Extreme 16U goalies Nic Leacox (save percentage of 91) and Alex Bilson, who shut out the Revolution.

The NorCal 14U team went 2-3 at the event, rebounding from two tough losses to beat the Silicon Valley Quakes and San Jose Tsunami Blue by identical 6-5 scores.

However, the locals lost a title game rematch with the Quakes.

Leading the way for the Extreme was Sam Blakewell, with five goals and four assists, and Jake Kirby (four goals, one assists). Four goals for Michael Cognetti and two from Jack Shields aided the NorCal cause while Brandon Pacciorini (three) and Keith Walker (one) had assists.

Thomas Witham and Cole Skoog added offensive pressure and local goalie Max Muller stopped 72 shots.

Davis club rugby

A sunny Sunday afternoon was the setting for a fun day of rugby as the Davis High varsity and JV boys clubs teams and the girls squad all took the field.

The Blue Devil varsity boys opened the day by falling to the Sac Eagles despite four tries by Nash Nunes.

Davis’ JV boys were up next, treating fans to a thrilling 34-32 win over Vacaville. In the victory, the Devils got two tries each from Frankie Spinardi and Gilberto Aldecua Felento, one apiece from Jake Sedgley and Sam Simon with conversions from Mat Meyers.

The local girls opened their home schedule with a good effort in a loss to Sierra Foothills. Estephanie Franco had Davis’ only score but several other players had strong outings.

Knights lacrosse

The Davis Knights’ U15 boys lacrosse team started its season off with a bang, beating the visiting Walnut Creek Warriors in a pair of games on Saturday before gaining good experience in a road match at the Diablo Scorpion Kings.

Davis opened against the Warriors’ A division squad and came away with a 9-6 victory. Nathan Soeth scored five goals to pace the locals, while Casey Aikawa added two and Griffin Stone and David Zingaro had one each.

The Knights also excelled on defense, especially goalie Wade Matern.

Playing the nightcap against Walnut Creek’s B division team, Stone’s first goal opened the floodgates for a 10-3 Davis win. Zingarro played well in goal as the Warriors didn’t score until the fourth period.

The locals got a strong test on Sunday as they headed to Danville. Despite an 18-4 loss, the Knights kept the game close early on and saw Cole Koeberer score on a leaping shot over the Scorpion Kings goalie’s head.

Junior golf

A pair of local junior golfers, both of whom are about to start their season with the Blue Devil boys team, played well at last weekend’s Alameda Open on the Northern California junior tour.

Andrew Arnheiter, a DHS sophomore, won the event — played at the Jack Clark South course at the Chuck Corica golf complex — after shooting rounds of 73 and 72. Devil junior Preston Walchli posted a 75 then a 78 to capture third.
