The Davis AC Milan, a U15 boys soccer team, charged to the top of the NorCal league standings and earned a ranking of 15th in the nation from Gotsoccer.com with a pair of convincing weekend victories.

Pouring rain did not prevent the locals from taking a quick lead in a 4-1 win over Santa Rosa. That early scoring came when Jaleel Dmeiri headed in a Sam Elwood pass and Cameron Peuse juked several defenders before finding the net to make it 2-0.

After the Davis defense had a rare lapse and ceded Santa Rosa a score, AC Milan’s Ricky Gonzales drilled a shot past the keeper and, just before the ref blew the final whistle, Jovanni Morales curved in a 30-yard free kick.

In the victory, Dan Shuman, Isaiah Alba and Santiago Moreno organized the Davis midfield and keeper Roberto Ortiz played well.

On Sunday, AC Milan defeated rival San Juan, 4-0, as Camilo Rodriguez began the scoring with a rocket from just inside the box and an own goal made it 2-0.

In the second half, goals from Peuse and Sammy Walker, off a Rodriguez pass, completed the scoring, while Davis defenders Bob Scott, Kyle Cuvelier and Ryan Strong kept San Juan from mounting serious attacks.

Velocity soccer

The Davis Velocity, a U18 girls soccer team, rolled to its most impressive victory of the winter league season on Saturday at Playfields Park, defeating the Ajax Elite, 2-0.

Playing in a rainstorm, local defenders Brooke Palmer, Jessica Cummins, Natalie Silver and Gabby Willey locked down the back line and goalkeeper Cassandra Figueroa made several point-blank saves to turn back Ajax attacks.

Midway through the first half, Silver pushed a ball up the right sideline for midfielder Alexis Olmedo, whose gorgeous cross was slotted home by a charging Ally Bowers. After intermission, Olmedo gave the Velocity some breathing room when she scored off a rebound from Sarah Quintero’s blast.

Behind midfielders Shawna McLaughlin and Jasmin Calderon, the locals controlled possession for the rest of the contest to preserve the win.

Wildcats hoops

The Wildcats Black, a 13U boys basketball team, went 3-0 to win the Black Division of the Hearts and Hoops Tournament last weekend in Rocklin.

In their tourney opener, the Wildcats defeated the North Bay Basketball Association, 75-35. The locals jumped to an early 21-7 lead behind the aggressive play of Henry Siegler, who ended up with 19 points and four assists. Arcel Rusanganwa also had a big game (21 points, seven boards) as Davis shared the ball effectively to the tune of 18 assists. Collin Yee dropped five of those dimes to go along with his 11 points and four steals, while Erick Lengtat (13 points) was on the receiving end of many of those passes.

The Wildcats beat Incline Village, 68-22, in the next round, using a tenacious trapping defense to take a 34-10 halftime lead. Anthony Hatfield and Lengtat each scored 13 points to pace the locals, Max Seed added nine points and three rebounds and Lance Prussel drained a pair of 3-pointers to score eight points. In addition, Davis’ Rayan Tilmatine controlled the paint with six boards and one block.

In the championship game, the Wildcats topped the YBA Xtreme, 60-29. After holding a narrow 23-21 halftime lead, Davis turned up the defensive pressure to outscore its opponent, 22-3 in the third quarter and 37-8 in the second half.

Rusanganwa led the way with 13 points and eight rebounds in the title game while Prussel caught fire and made three treys on his way to 11 points. Yee added 10 points and two steals.

NorCal Swish hoops

The NorCal Swish, an 11U boys basketball team that is made up of players from Davis, Dixon and Winters, won its second tournament of the year last weekend in Rocklin, extending its season record to 8-1.

In going 3-1 at the tourney, NorCal got strong performances from Adam Hasson, Brandon Bei, Demetrius Hyder, Matt Moore, Nate Thompson, Santiago Gonzales, Luke Carrell, Ben Busano and Jobe Antony.

The squad is coached by UCD women’s basketball Hall of Famer Aimee Hasson.
