Youth soccer: Aztecas get tangled up in Los Azules

From page B2 | April 18, 2013 |

The Davis Los Azules, a U16 boys team, went on the road to beat the Corning Aztecas, 3-2, on Sunday.

After his team took a 1-0 lead early on, Davis’ Barrett George passed the ball to Anirudh Ramakrishnan, who set up Murtaza Masroor for another goal shortly before the end of the first half. Los Azules players Thomas Oide and Alec Farboud also provided offensive support.

Bryant Murray, Ryan Quinn, Winston Tran and Ryan Tinsley played good defense for the locals, while goalie Kevin Riley made four saves. Davis midfielders Juan Pablo Almanza, Otto Nichols and Will Stukas made important blocks and returns.

Milan soccer

The Davis Milan, a U14 boys team, notched another spring league victory by taking down Los Gatos, 6-2.

Cameron Peuse, Ricky Gonzales and Isaiah Alba scored the first three Davis goals but Los Gatos responded with a pair of tallies before halftime.

After that, the Milan defense — paced by Jovanni Morales, Ryan Strong, Dan Shuman and Buddhika Ratnasari — did not allow any further threats. Mike Meadows-Smith, Jorge and Marco Rocha-Figueroa, Bob Scott and Santiago Moreno did their part from the local midfield.

On the other end of the field, Peuse outmaneuvered several defenders to make it 4-2 before Gonzales chipped in a shot from almost midfield to beat the Los Gatos keeper. Kyle Cuvelier dribbled through the box to score the final Davis goal.

Galaxy soccer

The Davis Galaxy, a U12 boys team, beat the Palo Alto Chelsea, 6-3, to earn third place at the PHMSA Soccerfest.

During the strong tournament run, local goals were contributed by Ted Oldham, Tomas Harding, Eli Matheson, Kori Kodira, Jean-Marc Ruffalo-Burgat and Nicholas Pacuilla. Also for the Galaxy, Scott Oslund, Alex Mangun and John Thompson were stellar on defense and Luke Burwell made key plays in the midfield.


The Davis Lightning, a U10 boys team, took the medal stand for the fourth straight tournament, finishing second at last weekend’s Pleasant Hill Martinez Soccerfest.

The locals actually held a 3-1 advantage at halftime of the championship contest, but couldn’t hold off a strong second-half charge by the Mount Diablo United, falling 4-3.

Davis’ road to the title game featured three wins in its flight, including a 2-0 shutout of Concord United and a 3-1 triumph over the Mount Diablo Strikers.

For the weekend, Cavan Schraner’s five goals and one assist spearheaded the Lightning offense — he tallied in all four games — while Conner Clark (four goals), Jaiden Temple (two goals, one assist) and Keenan Busse (one goal, one assist) rounded out the scoring.

Captain Ethan Schroeder led a stingy Davis defense, with ample help from Jacob Perez, Carson Whitehead and keepers Neil Smith and Nick Kennedy, who added an assist while playing midfield.


The Davis Legacy Stampede, a U12 girls team, opened the NorCal spring season by splitting games last weekend.

After falling to Elk Grove, 3-0, on Friday, the locals came back with a vengeance on Saturday morning, dominating the Capital Athletic Soccer Academy Boca, 8-1.

With Jordan Davis opening the Stampede scoring, the contest was tied 1-1 at the half. But the locals organized a crushing onslaught of offensive power after the break, scoring seven straight goals. In the barrage, Davis tallied twice to complete a hat trick, Anne Ayotte had two goals, and single tallies came from Ainsley Carroll, Grace Barger and Allie Belafsky.
