The Davis Intensity, a U12 girls soccer team, took second place at last weekend’s AYSO Areas 2C/2D Select Season Tournament.

In the first match against the Walnut Creek Olympia, Ana Fenton started the scoring off a corner kick from Allison Ayers, who had the other two local goals in a 3-1 win.

The Intensity followed by posting a 3-0 victory over the Pleasant Hill Firecrackers. Ayers again tallied twice, off assists from Sara Ludden and Rosie Mariano, while Fenton completed the Davis scoring.

It was a great defensive performance in the semifinals that lifted the locals over the Walnut Creek Wildcats and into the championships contest. The shutout defense was paced by goalkeepers Annabelle Lossin and Georgia Eastham along with Davis players Jenna Dyer, Kaitlyn Saylor and Emma Nance.

In the title match, Fenton scored a goal, while midfielders Kylie Seward and Molly Anderson led to several other offensive opportunities but the Mt. Diablo Heat scored twice in the final period to nab the championship.

Insanity

The Davis Insanity, a U12 girls team, played Pleasant Hill to a 2-2 deadlock before being knocked out of the regional tournament by the eventual champion Mt. Diablo Heat.

In the tie, Davis’ Gia Fanucchi scored on a beautiful feed from Maya Wood and Averi Brayton netted the rebound from a direct kick by Angela Herrera to even the score late in the fourth quarter. On the other end of the field, Insanity goalies Katie Stachowicz and Carmen Saez played well to preserve the tie.

The locals hung tough with the Heat for much of the second game as strong defense from Elise Jacobson and Aedan Gravely was key. Gravely, Fanucchi and Julia Albertson kept the offensive pressure on, but were unable to break through a stingy Mt. Diablo defense.

Hurricanes

The Davis Hurricanes, a U10 girls team, had a full day of soccer on Saturday at the Area 2D/2E tournament at Pleasant Hill. Despite playing three games in a row, the locals got stronger as the day went on, winning their final two matchups.

The Pleasant Hill Tuff n Nuff edged Davis, 3-2, in the opener, despite a tough Hurricane defense paced by Charlotte Macaulay. Local scoring in that contest came from Keiko Chan, who used her speed and agility to weave through the defense in the first quarter, and Susan Estrada, off an assist from Molly Mahoney.

Davis bounced back to beat the Walnut Creek Cyclones, 3-1, as Addison Magness and Devon Morris each broke through for their first goals of the season. Chan had the final tally, while the defense of Kiana Bagheban and the second-half goalkeeping of Morris was vital.

The Hurricanes braved rising temperatures to finish the day with a 5-0 win over the Mt. Diablo Phoenix.

Estrada and Bethany McElhern each had a pair of goals for the locals, while Mahoney completed the scoring when she drew in the goalie and sent a laser to the back corner of the net. Alexis Garret played well as the Davis goalkeeper.
