Youth soccer: Davis teams clash with Berzerk winning the day

From page B3 | February 07, 2013 |

Two Davis U16 girls soccer teams matched up Saturday with the Berzerk topping the Chaos, 3-0.

The Berzerk got goals from Elsa Iverson and Sarah Ostlund. Still, Chaos goalies Emily Nolan and Kristin Chastain stopped the majority of the shots, while their offensive teammates put plenty of pressure on the Berzerk defense.

The victory was the Berzerk’s third straight, following on the heels of wins over a pair of U19 squads last Saturday. That day, the Berzerk beat Concord, 6-0, and a Davis team, 2-1.


The Davis Heat, a U16 girls team, played Placer Blue to a 2-2 draw in Rocklin last weekend.

Davis started out on the attack, but shots by Suleikha Sutter, Olivia Haass and Jaha McClean were foiled by the Placer keeper. On the other end, the Heat defense proved equally impenetrable behind the strong play of Renee Schuman, Claire Dicker, Hannah Thompson, Melissa Teuber, Annie Leck, Elexsis Valenzuela, Alexia Moore, Emily Strack and keeper Christina Roeckl-Navazio.

Eventually, the relentless Davis pressure led to a Sophia Hernandez tally off of an assist from Kaitlyn Wagner just before halftime.

In the second half, following a Placer equalizer, Hernandez scored again, this time taking a pass from Kristin Ward and sending it over the keeper’s head. But the Blues tied the score and a late run by the Heat’s Brooke Rosenblum came up short to leave the teams even.


The Davis Domination, a U12 girls team, won both of their games last weekend, defeating American Canyon Soccer Queens and the Antelope Revolution.

In the first match, Davis got out to a big lead behind opening-half goals from Alissa Casillas, Mitchelle Atungulu, Chella Grattet and Lucia Ferrer, then held on for a 6-3 victory. Casillas and Laurel Krovetz added second-half tallies to seal the win.

Next, in beating Antelope 6-1, the Domination got an early goal on a Grattet penalty kick and Casillas quickly followed with another score — her first of four on the day. In addition, brilliant midfield play by Julia Albertson, Sara Ludden and Claire Duisenberg keyed the Davis attack, allowing Krovetz to score the final goal. The local defense was led by the aggressive play of Claire Stevens, Allison Ayers and Caroline Duncan.


The Davis Warning, a U12 girls soccer team, hosted a talented Walnut Creek Avalanche squad last weekend, coming away with a 2-0 win.

Sasha Ballowe got the Warning off to quick start, scoring just 2:16 into the game off an assist from Abigail Johnson, then added the second goal midway through the second half, assisted by Angela Herrera.

Additional offensive pressure came from Davis’ Meghan Eisenman, Gia Fanucchi, Lindsey Vernau and Fiona Strachen-Payne, while Delaney Seward, Leah Pinto, Averi Brayton and Alondra Arambula played stout defense to preserve the shutout.


The Davis Ambush, a U12 boys team, defeated American Canyon, 5-2, on Saturday.

Noah Fanhos figured in three Davis goals, assisting on two tallies by Evan King before sending his own ball into the net. Later, the speed of Joshua and Steven Noll was too tough for AC to handle as Joshua earned and converted a penalty kick for the Ambush.

Joe Vogel received a nice pass from Ben Park to round out the local scoring, and Matt Belenis posted a shutout in his half at goalie.


The Davis Hurricanes, a U10 boys team, traveled to Pleasant Hill and beat the Untouchables, 4-2.

Giving maximum effort from the opening whistle, the Davis defense — paced by Colin Walsh, Jason Inouye, Sam Koenig and keeper Josh Faith — kept the Untouchables off the scoreboard. Then, in the second quarter, the Hurricanes took a 1-0 lead when Cole Robben got the ball to Keane Deas, who found the far post.

Jason Inouye took advantage of a misplayed goal kick to give the locals a 2-0 lead midway through the third period, and after a PH tally, Robben set up Deas again to make it 3-1.

The teams traded goals in the fourth quarter, with Faith scoring for Davis, and outstanding keeper work by Miles Beaulieu sealed the Hurricanes’ victory.
