Youth soccer: Ninjas creep to a Comstock championship

From page B2 | May 01, 2014 |

The Davis Ninjas, a U10 boys soccer team, won the Coastal Division of the Comstock Shootout last weekend in Carson City, Nevada, defeating the South Lake Tahoe Sweaty Yetis, 4-3, in the championship game.

In the title match, Matt Young assisted on goals by Arman Varjavand and Ben Norton, then Varjavand converted a penalty kick to give the locals a 3-0 lead at the half. The Yetis tied it up after the break, but Varjavand’s overtime goal — off another feed from Young — completed his hat trick and gave Davis the crown.

For the tournament, the Ninjas outscored their opponents, 28-5, in four wins as Varjavand (nine goals), Andrew Wong (seven) and Young (six goals, eight assists) paced the local offense. Jose Lopez and Ethan Talbert provided excellent midfield support, while Daniel Aurich, Jason Hein-Gilley, and Connor McSorley were solid on the Davis back line. Norton and McSorley were strong in goal.

Hawks

The Davis Hawks, a U10 boys team, advanced to the finals of the Cascade pool at last weekend’s Comstock Shootout.

The locals earned the championship berth with victories over the AYSO Jaguars (6-3), the Spanish Springs Jaguars (8-0) and the Tahoe Sasquatch (2-0), but fell, 3-1, to Concord in the title contest. It was a gritty performance as Davis played without a substitute after an opening-match injury, but still took second place for the third straight tournament.

Connor Beck led the Hawks with 12 goals and three assists, with support from Jason King (one goal, three assists), Lucas Seban (three, two) and Jackson Trisch (one, two). Ben Riely was in goal for both Davis shutouts.

Ghost Strikers

The Davis Ghost Strikers, a U10 boys team, reached the finals of the Sierra pool at the Comstock Shootout last weekend.

The locals won their first two games — beating the Spanish Springs Jaguars and AYSO Bishop — then advanced to the championship contest on points. Davis fell to a tough Mt. Diablo Arsenal squad in the title match, but the second-place finish is their best of the season.

Barcelona

The Davis Barcelona, a U15 boys team, won a pair of 1-0 games last weekend, topping the Capital Athletic Boca and the Rocklin Red Devils.

In beating Boca, the locals got their lone goal off a Hector Rodarte cross that was headed by Joaquin Pierce to Andrew Raya, who found the net. Barcelona dominated the first half with strong offensive play from Ben Tang, Jackson Looney and Jordan Molinski, then withstood a second-half charge thanks to the tough defense of Jonathan Lovely, Alex Hill, Marco and Jorge Rocha-Figueroa and Brandon Hein.

Davis goalkeeper Matt Hill had his first clean sheet of the weekend against Boca, then made several great saves to match the performance against Rocklin.

In that game, Tang’s great run was awarded a penalty shot, which Molinski converted for the only goal the locals needed. Contributions from Sam Curran, Tomas Echiburu and Chris Johnson were key to the victory.
