The Velocity, a U15 girls soccer team with players from Davis, Woodland and the surrounding areas, went undefeated in two weekend games.

Playing in Vacaville on Saturday, the Velocity shut out the North Bay Elite, 3-0, with one goal coming from a long-range strike into the corner of the net by Josey Breeden off a corner possession by Hannah DeKnikker. Isolde Pierce added two gutsy local goals, including one off a cross by Hylena Perez.

In the win, Julisa Pedroza kept the Velocity goal clean — with strong help from Ashley Till, Ashleigh Stoddard, Karina Preciado, Morgan Metler and Claudia Robinson — while Tanya Rodriguez, Ally Martin, Alicia Pimentel, Megan Stewart, Briana Hernandez, Kelly Goedde-Matthews and DeKnikker controlled the midfield for the locals.

On Sunday, the Velocity traveled to Santa Rosa and tied the Athletico Club, 1-1. Perez scored the lone local goal, while A.J. Jimenez added offensive pressure.


In an exciting U12 girls matchup between two Davis teams on Saturday, the Warning beat the Domination, 1-0.

For the Domination, Laurel Krovetz, Alissa Casillas and Lucia Ferrer all took quality shots, while solid goalkeeping from Mitchelle Atungulu, Chella Grattet, Julia Albertson and Krovetz — who saved a Warning penalty kick — kept the game close.

Allison Ayers and Sara Ludden also played strong defense for the Domination, with Claire Duisenberg manning the midfield with skill and Caroline Duncan and Claire Stevens adding offensive punch.

U12 boys

Team 3, a Davis U12 boys team, came from behind to top Concord, 5-3.

Early on, it was all Concord as the hosts took a 2-0 first-period advantage before Davis’ Joe Vogel hit a nice shot on the left side of the goal.

Later, local goalie Matt Belenis made two quick saves then punted the ball downfield where Nathan Kong controlled it and passed to an open Evan King for the tying score. Before halftime, Davis made it 3-2 when Evan Deas played a throw-in like a corner kick to King, who scored his second straight goal.

Concord tied the game at 3-3 early in the third period, but it was the final goal it would score. The Davis defense — paced by Steven Noll, Joshua Noll, Ben Park and Robert Michael — stepped up its play and goalie Bjorn Krall finished the game without allowing another score.

On the other end of the field, aggressive play from local forward Noah Fanhos allowed King to run wild, scoring two more goals to total four in the contest.


The Davis Hurricanes, a U10 boys soccer team, fell to the MDSA United, 4-0, on Saturday in Concord.

Aggressive play from Josh Faith and Lucas Crawford, with support from Keane Deas and Colin Walsh, paced the local offense in the first half, while solid goalie work by Sam Koenig and tight defense by Cole Robben and Jason Inouye kept things close early in the game.

Down, 3-0, the Hurricanes played an even better second half behind the efforts of Miles Beaulieu and Lyle Hahn.
