The Davis Mojo, a U14 boys soccer team, shut out the Mt. Diablo United, 4-0.

Raunak Manandar led Davis with two goals and two assists, while Andrew Borchers and J.J. Granda each scored once.

Jay Kraft, Liam Mayr and Nathan Leyva were notable for their excellent midfield play for the Mojo. Alec Farboud, Jeremy Jaquinod and Mac Meerschiedt anchored the Davis defense.

Xtreme

The Davis Legacy Xtreme, a  U19 girls team, traveled to Las Vegas last weekend for their last tournament, ending a nine-year run together.

Davis beat the Spokane Elite from Washington, 1-0, in its first game as Shelby Brendel scored the lone goal off an assist by Gracie Correa.

Kelsey Kornelly scored the only goal in their next match as Xtreme won again.

In their third game of the tournament, Allie Muller kicked the ball past Milwaukee’s keeper to win that contest and give Davis a spot in the semifinals. After going down 1-0 in that game, Xtreme was unable to equalize.

Willa Davis, Ali Yule, Jennie Hawkins and Kayla Nanoo led the Davis defense, while goalie Megan Foster made key saves throughout the weekend.

Canaries

The Davis Canaries, a U19 girls team, grabbed a 2-1 win over an Antelope team on Saturday.

After an early Antelope goal, Gretchen Huston scored the equalizer in the second half, getting a rebound off a blocked shot by Miriam Bell. After another Bell shot was deflected, Katie Engel kicked the ball past the keeper for the final goal of the game. Linda Wogulis contributed to an aggressive Davis offense.

Meredith Conrad-Forrest and Dee Milbrodt excelled in the Canaries’ goal, while Erin Leary, Megan Bacchini, Sydnie Saechow, Lisa Bell, Elise Adams, Elizabeth Lawson and Esther Wu contributed with strong defense and set up the plays that brought the team back.

Shock

The Davis Shock, a U17 girls team, won the Las Vegas Mayor’s Cup — and international tournament — last weekend.

In group play, Davis tied a strong Colorado Pikes Peak Rush squad with a last-minute header by Kayla Ramirez off a free kick from Olivia Muller.

The Shock then dominated Spokane Elite in a 3-1 win. Muller starting the scoring and, after a Spokane equalizer, Kate Latsch headed in a perfect corner on a Zyra Bermudez assist. Ramirez scored the final goal for Davis off assists from  Danielle Hendricks and Hannah Mazet.

In the last group game, the Shock beat the defending champion Kansas City Legends, 2-0. Courtney Jimenez and Ceci Velasquez had a goal apiece and each assisted the other.

The Shock took down another Kansas team in the semifinal, when Velasquez eventually scored on a Muller assist.

Davis beat Mission Valley, 1-0, for the title. A clever late coaching move put Arianna Heyer up top as the third striker to draw coverage, which ultimately made room for Ramirez to send a ball high inside that Velasquez tapped in to clinch the championship.

Goalie Hannah Boger was flawless, making exceptional saves and winning every one-on-one situation. She was supported by the strong defense of Megan Miller, while Alicia Wun, Lindsay Stebbins and Sarah Chase made big contributions to the wins.

Legacy 95

The Davis Legacy 95, a U16 girls team, placed second out of 20 teams at the President’s Day Tournament in Phoenix last weekend.

Legacy 95 defeated the Boulder County Force, 1-0, in its first game, with Anna Maria Gilbertson scoring the lone goal off a Christina Corbin assist.

Due to rainy conditions, the remaining Sunday games became penalty shootouts, and Davis won one of those, 5-4, over FCX North Black of Illinois. Gilbertson, Dana Granger, Makenzie DeLaughder, Blake Bennick and Corbin all made their PKs and keeper Naomi Willet clinched the victory with a save.

In game three, a shootout against Utah Avalanche 95, Breonna Robinzine and Quinn Steigleder made their shots, but Davis lost, 4-2. Going straight to penalty kicks again in the quarterfinals, Gilbertson, Granger and DeLaughder nailed PKs for Legacy 95 and Davis stopped Strikers Fox Valley Premier, 3-2.

On Monday, Legacy 95 played a regulation game in the semifinals, shutting out FC Nova Elite of Idaho, 3-0. Gilbertson had a hat trick and Steigleder provided two assists. Jenna Farboud was resilient in the central midfield and defenders Deserae Lewis, Annalecia Caires, Bennick and Granger were strong all game.

Davis then lost in the championship match, 3-0, to Michigan Rush Northville.

Hericanes

The Davis Hericanes, a U12 girls team, faced off against two Pleasant Hill squads on Saturday at Playfields.

In their first game, the Hericanes won 5-4, getting two goal apiece from Hanna Bretschneider and Alex Damiant and one from Nicola Goldstein. Davis goalies Darby Maguire and Kelly Zheng kept Pleasant Hill at bay with solid defensive support from Juliet Sanders, Sawyer Norton and Tarin McMorrow. Excellent passing by Annika Streeb, Goldstein, Stephanie Milbrodt and Zheng also helped.

In their second game, the Hericanes tied the Pleasant Hill Rush, 2-2. Damiant scored both goals for Davis, while Sanders, Maguire and Zheng were solid in goal.
