The Davis Heat, a U17 girls soccer team, just missed the semifinals of the recent Las Vegas Mayor’s Cup.

Davis opened the tournament by playing the Delta Coastal Selects from Canada to a 1-1 draw. An early goal by Hannah Thompson, off an assist from Renee Schuman, put the locals up early, while strong defense by Annie Leck, Melissa Teuber, Kaitlyn Wagner and keeper Christina Roeckl-Navazio kept the Heat from getting a loss.

Kristin Ward, Schuman, Emily King and Olivia Haass also played well for Davis in that contest.

Next, the locals rose to the occasion against the tough Nebraska Toro Intensity, pulling off a 2-1 win. Mikayla Vang, Jaha McClean and Brooke Rosenblum were strong up front, Alexia Moore and Suleikha Sutter anchored the defense and Heat goals came from Haass and Ward.

Tied for first place in its group, Davis came up short in a 1-0 loss to the Arizona FC Barcelona, then took on the Michigan Rush in the consolation round. There, the Heat fell behind early and couldn’t catch up.

Matrix

The Davis Matrix, a U14 girls team, dropped a 1-0 decision to the Mt. Diablo Fury on Saturday at Nugget Fields.

Matrix keeper Erin Benedict dealt with a relentless first-half attack, allowing just the one goal, while the strong Davis defense of Nancy Avoce, Kelly Zhang, Lucia Ferrer and goalie Fiona Strachan-Payne kept things scoreless after intermission.

Locals Ferrer, Claire Williams and Maddie Spangler controlled the midfield, setting up good opportunities up front for Laurel Krovetz, Alissa Casillas, Khalida Pergher and Megan Kong. Still, the Matrix couldn’t find the net.

Hurricanes

The Davis Hurricanes, a U10 girls team, took fourth place at the President’s Cup last weekend in San Jose.

Playing seven games in two days — including two penalty kick showdowns — the locals fought to reach the semifinals, getting contributions from up and down the roster.

Legacy 98 Red

The Davis Legacy 98 Red, a U16 boys team, won its first two games at the recent Las Vegas Mayor’s Cup.

First, Davis played great defense in a 1-0 win over the Galaxy SC, getting the lone goal from Owen Fingar off a corner kick.

Later that day, the locals defeated Colorado Rapids, 2-0, as Matt Case and David Quinteros found the net.

In its third game, Davis got an early goal when Case headed in a cross from Fingar, but Fubolito Real Tuzos worked its way back for a 2-1 win that send the locals to the consolation round.

There, Davis matched up with Marin but, despite a highlight-reel header goal from Sergio Farias — off a Quinteros corner — and a nice defensive play by Francis Avoce, the locals couldn’t get the victory.

AC Milan

The Davis AC Milan, a U15 boys team, clinched the NorCal National Premier Winter League championship by playing Sac United to a 1-1 tie on Sunday.

Sac scored first, less than a minute into the game, but local defenders Kyle Cuvelier, Jaleel Dmeiri, Buddhika Ratnasiri, Ryan Strong and keeper Roberto Ortiz were impenetrable the rest of the way.

Meanwhile, Davis attackers Ricky Gonzales, Cameron Peuse, Jovanni Morales, Camilo Rodriguez and Sammy Walker worked well together to create several scoring chances. Eventually, pressure by Peuse forced a Sac defender to head the ball into his own goal for the equalizer.

Milan’s midfielders Isaiah Alba, Sam Elwood, Santiago Morales and Dan Shuman took charge in the victory, while Matteo Sorrentino and Bobby Scott added a physical presence.
