A pair of NorCal Extreme roller hockey club teams combined to go 7-0 at Saturday’s SIHL tournament in Woodland.

The local 14U squad was 4-0 at the event, opening with a 5-2 win over Half Moon Bay. The Extreme then shut out Livermore, ripped Ripon, 8-0, by mercy rule then defeated Bishop to wrap up the weekend.

During the great run, Sam Blakewell scored nine goals and handed out two assists to lead NorCal, Brandon Pacciorini added four goals and three assists, Jack Shields contributed three goals and an assist, while Nick Blakewell buried a goal and dished out four assists.

In addition, Tylar Rickert and Thomas Witham scored a goal each for the locals and Keith Walker had two. Cole Skoog put pressure on the opposing defense all day, and Extreme goalie Max Muller shined in net with a save percentage of 94.

That undefeated performance was matched by NorCal’s 16U team, which went 3-0 at the tourney.

The Extreme took its first game from Chico, 4-1, before routing Stockton, 7-3. When the locals met Chico again in the finals, they hung on for a 2-1 win to capture the tournament title.

NorCal’s Joe Blakewell scored three goals on the day and had an assist, Caleb Hermle contributed a goal and three assists and Ryan Kowta added a goal and four assists. Ricky Pacciorini and Tyler Schafer each scored twice and had one assist each, while Dylan Lee and Henry Campbell both sank two goals. Sam Blakewell added an assist for the locals, who got 28 saves from goalie Nic Leacox.

The Extreme also saw its 8U and 12U squads perform well at the tournament.

Diamonds gymnastics

Lainey Swanson won uneven bars gold, while Isabela Martinez, Cordelia Hsiao, Gabriela Caceres-Ferenandz, Maya Dhond and Kyra Mayfield each earned silver medals for the Davis Diamonds gymnastics team at last weekend’s Golden State Classic in Rancho Cordova.

The event is the start of the Junior Olympic and Xcel competition years, so many of the top athletes in Northern California and Nevada were in the field. Despite the strong competition, Davis’ Xcel Silver team took third and the local Level 7 and 8 squads each placed fifth.

Each competing at Level 8 for the first time, Karolina Perkins landed a tuck Tsukahara to finish 11th all-around in the youngest division and Clara Riggle (bars) and Kate Miller (vault) both earned sixth-place finishes. In addition, Micaela Everitt placed seventh for her piked Tsukahara (9.0) and sixth on beam to finish 10th all-around.

Hsiao started her Level 7 meet with a career-beat beam performance (9.125) to take seventh all-around, while Emma Clark went four-of-four in hwe first appearance at Level 7 and was sixth all-around.

Nicole Bradshaw showed improvement on all events, including getting fourth for a strong bars set, to place seventh all-around. All three Level 7 Diamonds joined the entire Level 8 crew in qualifying for the state championships.

Davis’ Chloe Chan and Martinez braved tough competition in Level 9, with Martinez earning a 9.2 on floor and taking eighth all-around (34.1) while Chan conquered a tuck double back flip and finished 13th all-around.

The Xcel session was the first gymnastics competition for many Davis athletes. Elena Philips placed fifth on floor as well as seventh in vault, bars and all-around in the youngest silver division, where Elisa Bourne was eighth on floor and 12th all-around.

Among the intermediate silver gymnasts, Caceres-Fernandez earned scores over 9.0 for all four of her performances, taking a silver on beam and bronze medals for vault and in the all-around, where she was just 0.25 from first. Dhond received 9.55 for her bars performance and totaled a strong 35.4 in her first meet, Alex Freedland-Wolford was strong on bars (9.275 for sixth) and eighth all-around and Emma Thompson was right behind on bars (9.25) and ninth all-around.

In the youngest Gold division, Swanson won bars (9.15), placed third on vault and fifth all-around with a strong 35.15, while Kaelyn Perkins earned sixth place for her vault and finished 11th all-around. In platinum, Mayfield received 9.35 for her vault and took sixth on floor.

Thunder soccer

The Davis Thunder, a U12 boys team, won its first game of the season on Saturday at Nugget Field, beating American Canyon, 6-0.

In the first quarter, Davis dominated the field as Sam Koenig, Pieter Angermann and Jason Inouye pushed the ball forward, eventually setting up Jason Henkel for the first local goal.

The second period featured strong Thunder defense from Miles Beaulieu, Steven Guilfoil, James Leistikow and Michael Leistikow to preserve Davis’ 1-0 lead through halftime.

With their confidence growing, the locals got three third-quarter goals from Joe Vogel, off assists from Lyle Hahn, Rhys Mahoney and George Simmons.

The stingy Davis defense continued in the final period, while an own goal by American Canyon and a tally by Koenig completed the scoring.

Davis boys rugby

The Davis Rugby Club boys squads opened their seasons by hosting a three-team exhibition match on Friday at Brown Stadium, where a nice crowd was treated to six 30-minute games between the varsity silver and varsity bronze squads from Davis, Vacaville and Woodcreek.

The local silver team got things underway with a 14-12 victory over Woodcreek, with Nash Nunes scoring in the first half (kick conversion by Michal Goodison) and Bailey Yarrow posting the eventual game-winner (kick conversion by Tristan Tadano).

Davis silver — which got strong play in both games from Ben Gore, Tristan Tadano and Josh Greenfield — then finished the night by beating Vacaville, 20-0. The scoring was led by Goodison and Eli Castro, who had breakaway runs for try of 48 and 50 yards, respectively. Later, Anthony Pedroia made it 15-0 when he bulled his way to a 6-yard try, carrying many Vacaville opponents with him.

Local Winfred Roberson capped the scoring by touching down a Vacaville fumble in the goal area as the final seconds ticked away. The loose ball was caused when Quinten Jones delivered a jarring hit.

Davis’ bronze team opened with a 5-5 tie against Vacaville, with Matt Meyers putting up the lone local score on a 20-yard run, off an assist from Frankie Spinardi. The score was set up by a 25-yard scamper by Jerid Roberson.

Woodcreek defeated Davis, 12-5, in the next game, despite a Max Herzog score and great efforts from Nate Ortiz, Perry Leonard, Talek Deary and Alex Phillip.
