Youth soccer: Ambush play bien in El Palo Alto soccer tourney

From page B3 | May 02, 2013 |

The Davis Ambush, a U12 boys soccer team, took third place at the El Palo Alto Tournament last weekend.

In Sunday’s third-place game, the Ambush defense was in top form in a 1-0 win over the Sunnyvale Earthquakes.

Local defenders Steven Noll, Bjorn Krall and Ben Park combined to get a stop then send the ball forward, where Evan King and Joe Vogel set up Noah Fanho’s goal.

Ambush strikers Josh Noll, Nathan Kong and Evan Deas kept the offensive pressure on throughout the rest of the contest, while Matt Belenis and Robert Michael were untouchable in goal.

In all, Davis won three of its five matches.

Velocity

The Velocity, a U15 girls team with players from Davis and Woodland, took second place at last weekend’s Manteca Spring Invitational.

The Velocity beat San Bruno Dynamite, 6-0, in its opening match, using goals by Tanya Rodriguez (three), Josey Breeden (two) and Hylena Perez. Goalkeeper Maddie MacKenzie and her back line of Morgan Metler, Julisa Pedroza, Ashley Till, Ashleigh Stoddard, Karina Preciado and Isolde Pierce never let Dynamite get close.

In its second match, tensions ran high as midfielders Ally Martin and Ariana Sanchez each endured several tough knocks, resulting in a red card to one opponent and Velocity tying San Jose Pacific, 1-1, on Breeden’s net-ripping, second-half goal.

On Sunday, Velocity won its semifinal match, 3-2, in a shootout. Breeden scored early before Rodriguez added her second header goal of the weekend off a corner kick to tie the match late. For maximum excitement, Brianna Hernandez joined five other teammates in making successful penalty kicks before dog-piling keeper Mackenzie to celebrate the win.

Despite big-time midfield efforts from Megan Stewart and Alex Diaz, the local offense came up short in the championship contest. Playing in very hot conditions, Velocity fell to the Santa Rosa Athletico, 1-0, to take second place.

Infinity

The Davis Infinity, a U14 girls team, played through the Comstock Shootout without a loss, winning a game and tying two.

The Infinity began the tournament with a 1-1 tie against the Mount Diablo Legends. Sophia DeRuntz opened up the scoring in the first half, off of a corner kick by Willa Moffatt, but the Legends later got the equalizer.

Next, Davis played the eventual champion MPHFC United  to a dramatic 1-1 tie, with Aliya Hirzy scoring the local goal after beating three defenders on a breakaway.

In the final game, the Infinity outlasted a physical Sagebrush SC Chili Pepper, 2-1. In the first half, Hirzy scored off an assist from Emily Talbert. Eventually, the Chili Peppers tied the score, but DeRuntz quickly put Davis on top for good. Local defenders Julia Kelsch, Tarin McMorrow, Addie O’Hanlon and Sophie Marie took their team the rest of the way.

Throughout the tournament, the Infinity got stellar goalkeeping from Darby Maguire, Sophia Sears and Bryn Wieking, while Morgan Mooney-McCarthy, Mary-Camille Lovely and Julia Alali made key plays in the midfield.

Warning

The Davis Warning, a U12 girls team, went 2-1 at the recent Comstock Shootout in Carson City, finishing with 19 points for the tournament. Meghan Eisenman, Lindsey Vernau and Sasha Ballowe combined to score all nine of the local goals, with Gia Fanucchi, Delaney Seward and Alondra Arambula contributing assists.

The Warning began the tournament with a 4-1 victory over the Davis Frost, after jumping out to a 3-0 halftime lead. That was followed by a 5-0 victory over Concord, with all the local goals coming in the last 31 minutes of the game.

Fiona Strachen-Payne, Averi Brayton, Leah Pinto, Angela Herrera and Abigail Johnson all played well at various positions throughout the event, but Davis fell to eventual champion Carson Valley, 3-0, in its final matchup.

Domination

The Davis Domination, a U12 girls team, went 1-2 at the Comstock Shootout last weekend in Carson City.

In the first game, the Domination defeated the Pleasant Hill Nightlock, 3-0. Davis’ Lucia Ferrer scored off a corner kick and, not long after, Mitchelle Atungulu put one in the net to give the locals a 2-0 halftime lead. After the break, a tally from Caroline Duncan and impressive defense by Claire Stevens and Allison Ayers left few opportunities for the Hill Nightlock.

Facing Bishop in its second game, Davis’ second-half comeback — spurred by offensive pressure from Alissa Casillas and Claire Dusienberg and two goals from Atungulu — wasn’t enough in a 4-2 loss.

The Domination played well in the final game, but fell just short, 4-3, to the Lady Jaguars. Duisenberg had two corner kick assists to Lucia Ferrer and Chella Grattet, who scored twice.

For the locals, Julia Albertson and Sara Ludden provided solid midfield and defensive play all weekend and Grattet won her division of the Goalie Wars, with Duncan also reaching the final four.

Stampede

The Davis Legacy Stampede, a U12 girls team, chalked up 13 goals over the weekend as they logged two impressive wins and a very narrow loss.

The locals started off strong Friday evening, shutting out the Fair Oaks Freedom, 4-0. Jordan Davis scored twice, while Sophie Karperos added a goal on Yasmeen Dmeiri’s corner and later assisted Ainsley Carroll for the final tally.

The Stampede were even more dominant on Sunday morning, crushing the Cal Blues, 8-0. Davis scored two more in the match as did Vanessa Carrasco, and Dmeiri, Anne Ayotte and Mckenna Lutzker had one each. A Cal own goal added insult to injury to complete the rout. Lily Byrne had two assists in the win, while Skye Shaffer and Davis added one each.

The locals then faced a tough Modesto Ajax team, and lost 2-1 despite leading at the halftime as Alex Hanna scored on an assist from Ayotte. But the locals could not prevent two second-half tallies by the opponent. Still, Karperos, Shaffer and Grace Carlson led a spirited Davis defense throughout the contest.
