The Davis Legends, a U15 girls soccer team, completed their 2010-11 season with a 4-2 loss to Capital Football Club United on Saturday in the NorCal State Cup quarterfinals in Turlock, playing even after falling behind, 2-0, in the first seven minutes.
Megan Beckman and Ashley Jackson had Davis’ goals, while midfielders Jade Bugsch, Claire Buhlman, Kelsey Bean and Natalie Silver created numerous scoring opportunities. Eva Dicker assisted Jackson on her goal.
Stellar play by goalkeeper Asia Calvo and defenders Michaela Saechow, Cailin Field and Lydia Gegan kept the game close well into the second half.
The Davis Damage, a U19 girls team, closed their regular season with a 4-1 win over the U16 Impact squad last weekend.
Impact scored first, but Davis’ Lea Snow scored the equalizing shot to even it up for halftime.
Allie Loux started Damage’s comeback in the second half with a stunning strike after receiving a cross from Kelsey Dedoshka. A.J. Farrens’ shot from the right flank flew in between an Impact defender and Davis striker Emily Brown, to land neatly in the far-post corner. Hillary Medrano then controlled a back pass from Loux and slammed Damage’s last goal into the net.
Solid defense by Amy Ragdale, Lauren Kim, Sze-Sze Chan, Natalie Ho and Sheila Pollard left Davis keepers Megan Withworth and Catherine Ho with little to do.
The Davis Legacy Red Crew, a U15 boys team, notched a 0-0 draw against a higher-ranked Sacramento Area League opponent — Placer’s California Development Academy — on Friday at Playfields soccer field.
Youcef Rezagui, Alex Perez and Brian Blake all had shots on goal, while the team played strong defensively.
