The Davis Warning, a U12 girls soccer team, blanked the Mt. Diablo Eclipse, 6-0, in a recent game at Nugget Fields.

The local scoring barrage was led by Sasha Ballowe, who had four goals and an assist, while Meghan Eisenman added a goal and a pair of assists. Gia Fanucchi’s tally rounded out the Davis scoring, with Fiona Strachan-Payne and Lindsey Vernau providing assists.

Defense in the shutout was paced by Averi Brayton, Alondra Arambula and Angela Herrera, as the Warning dominated time of possession thanks to the midfield work of Abigail Johnson and Delaney Seward.

Los Azules

The Davis Alliance Los Azules, a U16 boys team, went to Lodi and beat the Crushers Premier, 2-0, on Feb. 16.

For the locals, Otto Nichols scored the first goal and Barret George completed the scoring with a second-half tally.

Los Azules got strong defense from Alec Farboud, Bryant Murray, Ryan Tinsley and Winston Tran to make goalie Mac Meersheidt’s job easier, requiring just one save. Good midfield play by Ryan Quinn, Anirudh Ramakrishnan, Murtaza Masroor and Nichols was key, while forwards Juan Pablo Almanza, Rudy Campos and Will Stukas provided offensive pressure.

Davis FC

The Davis FC, a U16 boys team, came from behind to defeat Concord, 3-1, in a recent match.

After Concord found the net first, Davis’ Nathan Leyva evened the score when he headed in a pass from Barret George. Later, FC player Brennan Raven scored off of a deflected shot and Ivan Medina was assisted by Nathan Leyva to round out the local goals.

Davis goalies Landon Smith and Kevin Riley worked with defenders Randy Ouyang, Ricky Houck and Josh Kong to hold Concord scoreless after the early going, while Jonathan Miras, J.J. Granda, Matt Grabert, Sam Burns, Jack Sedgley and Elan Sonstein controlled the midfield for the locals.

Ambush

The Davis Ambush, a U12 boys team, fell to Concord, 2-1, on Saturday at Nugget.

Solid soccer was played by both sides in the opening quarter as Davis’ Noah Fanhos, Steven Noll and Ben Park combined with goalie Matt Belenis to keep their opponents scoreless in the first half. Meanwhile, Evan King gave the Ambush a 1-0 lead in the second quarter off of an assist from Noll.

After Concord tied things up early in the second half, locals Robert Michel, Nathan Kong, Fahnos and King worked to create opportunities up front, but no shots found the net.

Concord scored again in the fourth period and, while Davis defenders Bjorn Krall, Joe Vogel and Evan Deas kept the visitors without a goal the rest of the way, the Ambush could not equalize.

Lightning

The Davis Lightning, a U10 boys team, wrapped up a successful two-day outing at the San Jose Presidents Cup last weekend by capturing third place.

A strong defense was spearheaded by Davis’ Ethan Schroeder, Jacob Perez, Carson Whitehead and keepers Neil Smith and Nick Kennedy, who proved a tough nut to crack by giving up only three goals in six matches. In addition, effective passing and ball control by Lightning midfielders Conner Clark, Cavan Schraner and Jaiden Temple kept opponents on their heels throughout the tournament.

Clark and Schraner led locals in scoring with Whitehead (pool play), Schroeder (semifinals) and Temple (third-place game) each winning Player of the Match awards.

After a successful run through pool play, Davis dropped a semifinal match in penalty kicks to Mt. Diablo, the eventual champion. The Lightning then bounced back to capture the third-place matchup.
