The Davis Lightning, a U10 boys soccer team, struck gold last weekend in Carson City, winning its division of the Comstock Shootout.

The Lightning topped its flight in commanding fashion, first blanking the Tahoe Yetis (9-0) and following that display with a 7-2 win over Bishop to advance to the second round. The locals were similarly strong in the semifinals, defeating the Mount Diablo Strikers, 8-1.

It wasn’t so easy in the championship contest as Davis trailed at intermission before scoring two quick second-half goals to post a 3-2 victory.

Conner Clark paced the Lightning offense with eight goals and two assists, Cavan Schraner added seven goals and three dimes, while Keenan Busse (four assists) and Jaiden Temple (two assists) each scored four times.

Davis’ defense got strong contributions from captain Ethan Schroeder — who also had a goal and an assist — Jacob Perez and the versatile Carson Whitehead, who added a tally of his own. Neil Smith and Nick Kennedy both held sway in the local goal and each found the net when playing in the field.

Thunder

The Davis Thunder, a U12 boys team, went 2-1 at the Comstock Shootout last weekend in Carson City.

Davis’ first game, a 2-0 loss to a tough International Storm squad, featured great local defense by Noah Crawford, Noah Lopez and Andrew Bell. Thunder keepers Diego Sedillo and Marco Landolino also were stingy and the Strom held off a strong attack with Gabriel Lee, Daniel Smith and Landolino.

An improved performance in Davis’ next contest led to a 2-1 victory over the SSSC Jaguars. The first goal came courtesy of Daniel Smith, off an assist from Ryan Hakl. The game-winner was scored by Lee, with another good pass from Hakl. Sean Smith provided offensive support for the locals.

The Thunder was dominating in their final matchup, a 3-0 victory over PHMSA. After Davis applied strong pressure on the opposing keeper for the whole first half, Daniel Smith finally broke through for a goal after the break. Not long after, Landolino put in a second tally and Bell fed Aspen Whitmer, who executed a perfect finish clinch the local victory. Bell, Lopez, Crawford, Tobias Adamozewski and James Olichney held the PHMSA offense at bay.

Los Azules

The Davis Los Azules, a U16 boys team, went undefeated in a pair of games last weekend.

On Saturday, local guest player Joseph Zoldak had a hat tricks and singles tallies came from Ruben Mendoza and Murtaza Masroor in a 5-2 win over River City United. Anirudh Ramakrishnan, who had an assists and Otto Nichols provided offensive support for Davis, while Bryant Murray, Ryan Quinn, Winston Tran, Ryan Tinsley, Juan Pablo Almanzar and Will Stukas made key contributions.

Los Azules then played the Chico Chelsea to a 3-3 tie on Sunday, as Mendoza had a goal and an assist, Zoldak scored and Almanzar tallied off a pass from Stukas.

Stampede

The Davis Legacy Stampede, a U12 girls team, beat the visiting Cal Cougars, 3-0, on Sunday in the howling wind.

After taking a 1-0 lead in the first half on Jordan Davis’ early goal, the Stampede opened it up after the break. First, Ainsley Carroll tallied off an assist from Yasmeen Dmeiri and then Lily Bryne set up Davis’ second goal of the day. Tough local defense did the rest, securing the shutout.
