Youth roundup: U17 Los Azules beats a U19 squad on its way to third place

From page B2 | October 03, 2013 |

The Davis Los Azules, a U17 boys soccer team, took third place at the Pleasanton Fall Harvest Classic last weekend.

Unintimidated by the age difference, the locals opened the tourney with a 3-1 win over the Eureka Force, a U19 squad. Ruben Mendoza scored all three Davis goals, the first with a long shot off an assist from Bryant Murray.

After Eureka tied the game at 1-1, Mendoza netted the eventual game-winner and later scored an insurance goal with assists from Liam Mayr and Anirudh Ramakrishnan.

The Los Azules offense was supported by Jonathan Jones, Otto Nichols and Barrett George, while good defense came from Winston Tran, Murray, Ryan Tinsley, Ryan Quinn and goalie Kevin Riley. Midfielders Alec Farboud, Manpreet Singh, Will Stukas, Mayr and Kyle Gold also played key roles on the road to the consolation game.

There, Davis defeated San Jose, 1-0, as George scored the only goal of the contest.

Stampede soccer

The Davis Stampede, a U12 girls soccer team, won its league game Thursday then took two of three in tournament play over the weekend.

A windy Thursday evening was the stage for the  league match against Woodland that featured a bizarre ending.

With the Stampede down 1-0 early, Lily Byrne set up Jordan Davis with a nice through ball, then connected with Anne Ayotte, who buried it far post to make it 2-1. Woodland, however, countered with two more goals to go up 3-2 at the half.

After intermission, Lindsey Vernau scored on a bouncing ball from 18 yards out to tie the game, before Davis tapped the ball in past a diving keeper to give the locals a 4-3 lead.

Following that goal, the contest began to get more physical and, with nearly 15 minutes to play, the Woodland coach pulled his players from the field to force an apparent forfeit. Final official results are pending league review.

In weekend play, the Stampede went 2-1 at the Davis Legacy Premier Cup. Davis dropped the opener to Elk Grove 1-0 but bounced back in Game 2 with a come-from-behind 2-1 win over Clovis.

With her team trailing 1-0, Yasmeen Dmeiri whipped in a cross to Davis, who volleyed in the tying goal. Later, Byrne’s winning tally emerged from a wild scrum.

The next day, the locals defeated the USA Stars, 5-0, with goals from Ayotte, Davis (two), Ainsley Carrol and Allie Belafsky and assists by Carrol and Grace Barger.

Thunder softball

The Davis Thunder, a 10U softball team, split a doubleheader against the Roseville Wrecking Crew in NorCal Girls Fastpitch action on Sunday at Slide Hill Park.

Davis took the opener, 15-10, behind the offensive power of Tara Reddy (3-for-3, two runs), Bella Hyder (two hits including a double and one run scored), Jordan Zuniga (two hits including a double), Bella Contreras (two hits) and a double and three runs from Heather Breckner. Stevie Spencer added a hit and Briana Schwarz scored twice.

Spencer (five strikeouts) went the distance in the circle and combined with catcher Reddy for an inning-ending double play at home. Hyder anchored the solid Thunder defense with her play at first base.

Roseville came from behind to take the second game, 11-8. In the loss, Hyder went 3-for-3 with a double and scored three runs, while Zuniga, Lauren Lee and Stevie Spencer were 2-for-3. Hyder (six strikeouts) threw a complete game and the Thunder defense was led by Halle Gabriel.
