Scott Korinke, a keeper for the Davis Blazers U16 boys soccer team, stopped a penalty kick and follow-up shot on Saturday to help his team post a 6-1 road win over the Concord United.

The evenly matched first half ended with Davis leading 1-0 after Matthew Grabert’s shot was inadvertently kicked by a defender into the back of the Concord net. The Blazers, however, showed flashes of what was to come with near-misses from Conner Thompson and Eli Weiss.

And sure enough, the locals came alive after intermission with precision passing and stellar offense leading to goals by Grabert, Niko Pandeleos (two), David Roque and Andrew Roessler.

The Davis defensive — with help from midfielders Shayan Bagheban, Roberto Halpin, Nathan Leyva, Jacob Westland and Isaac Yandel — remained strong throughout the contest as Concord’s goal didn’t come until two minutes into second-half extra time.

Legacy 98

The Davis Legacy 98, a U16 boys team, blanked Marin FC Blue, 2-0, on Sunday in Davis.

Marin threatened early but missed a couple of close-range attempts, then Davis’ Francis Avoce broke the scoreless tie when he bent a low shot around a six-man wall and into the net.

Playing with the lead, the local back four of Matthew Rowen, Kyle Fix, Daniel Perez and Avoce controlled the ball around midfield, preserving the advantage through halftime.

After the break, Davis keeper Salvador Chavez guessed well and dove left to block a penalty kick to keep his team ahead before Pablo Guarzino put the finishing touches on the win with a late goal.

Barcelona

The Davis Barcelona, a U15 boys team, won three matches over the past two weeks to move into second place in its Winter League bracket.

First, the locals pounded Atlas Academy, 6-0 on Jan. 18, behind two goals from Ben Tang and one each from Sam Curran, Joaquin Pierce (PK), Chris Johnson and Jordan Molinski.

Then on Saturday, Davis defeated Los Lobos, 5-1, with Curran tallying twice. Single goals in that contest came from Johnson, Andrew Raya and Michael Vernau.

The next day, Curran had two more goals as Barcelona beat American Canyon, 3-1. Luis Ramos also found the net for the locals.

Throughout the three victories, strong midfield play has come from Marco and Jorge Rocha-Figueroa, Almog Fishman, Jackson Looney and Jonathan Lovely, while Barcelona’s Alex Hill, Vernau, Raya, Eliot Williams, Brandon Hein and keeper Matt Hill have paced a stingy defense.

AC Milan

The Davis AC Milan, a U15 boys team, used two recent victories to move to the top of its NorCal winter league standings and earn a No. 24 national ranking.

In the first game, the locals vanquished Marin Blue, 4-0. Matteo Sorrentino almost began the scoring when his curved free kick hit the bar, but Davis needed less than a minute to find the net as Milo Rodriguez twisted in a 30-yard shot.

Cameron Peuse made it 2-0 just before halftime and the Davis defense and midfield — led by Dan Shuman, Jovanni Morales, Bob Scott, Ryan Strong, Isaiah Alba, Ricky Gonzales and Sam Elwood — rarely allowed Marin past midfield. Peuse completed a hat trick in the second half to end the scoring.

Sammy Walker started off the scoring in the next contest — a 2-1 win over Elk Grove — when he blasted a Kyle Cuvelier pass into the net. Rodriguez made it 2-0 after an intricate play that included several fines passes, and the defense of Buddhika Ratnasiri, Jaleel Dmeiri, Santiago Moreno and keeper Roberto Ortiz preserved the victory.

Matrix

The Davis Matrix, a U14 girls team, dominated host Concord, 7-0, on Saturday. The locals came out strong with Alissa Casillas scoring in the first five minutes of the contest.

That opened the floodgates as Megan Kong scored four Davis goals, while Kelly Zheng and Lucia Ferrer tallied once each.

Meanwhile, Laurel Krovetz, Nancy Avoce and Claire Williams played solid defense to keep the Matrix in a comfortable lead.

Insanity

The Davis Insanity, a U12 girls team, rolled over the American Canyon Velocity, 8-0, in a Saturday home game.

Davis used its superior depth to overcome a spirited American Canyon squad as Katrina Haws, Elise Jacobson, Gia Fanucchi, Caroline Duncan, Aedan Gravely, Carmen Saez and Angela Herrera all scored for the home team. Abigail Johnson started one of the goals with a beautiful corner kick that Saez deftly directed past the Velocity keeper.

On the other end of the field, Insanity’s Maya Wood, Averi Brayton and Katie Stachowicz played stout defense in front of local keepers Duncan, Saez, Fanucchi and Julia Albertson, who combined for the shutout.
