The Davis Berzerk, a U16 girls soccer team, went to the Bay Area for the Pacifica Fog Classic last weekend and, after four hard-fought games, emerged as the tournament champions.

The Berzerk was paced by a smart, effective defense that did not allow a goal the whole weekend. They did it with skillful goalkeeping from Mari O’Brien working with the speed of defenders Leona Craig and Alaina King and getting support from Kate Lee, Anne-Marie Shipley, Shelby Danzer, Kellee Hyson and Niki Patel. Local midfielders Sarah Allen-Sutter, Rachel Clift, Brittany Aldredge and Sarah Oslund also contributed with their physical play.

With defense taken care of, two quick goals by Aldredge led to a 5-0 win over the NorPen Honey Badgers before Elsa Iverson’s late game-winner sent Davis past San Mateo, 1-0.

Needing a win or a tie against Mountain View Aftershock to reach the finals, Oslund gave a pass to Iverson, who broke another scoreless tie with less than a minute to play. O’Brien played brilliantly in the net to solidify the Berzerk’s spot in the championship contest, where they faced their cross-town rivals, the Davis Chaos.

Playing for the title, the Berzerk got off to a hot start behind Emily Torbert’s two quick goals just minutes apart to start the game, then held on to win 2-0 behind their dominating defense.

Infinity

The Davis Infinity, a U14 girls team, took second place at the Pacifica Fog Classic.

The locals began with a 4-0 victory over the Menlo Park Code Red. Willa Moffatt scored the first Davis goal, and minutes later Aliya Hirzy added two more, one with the help of Darby Maguire. Hirzy later added another goal off an assist by Sophia DeRuntz.

Next, the Infinity beat the San Jose United, 3-0, behind two goals from Julia Alali and one from Emily Talbert, all assisted by Hirzy. Local keeper Sophia Sears played well and the strong defense of Tarin McMorrow, Mary-Camille Lovely and Sophie Marie helped preserve the shutout.

In its third game, Hirzy’s hat trick and aggressive midfield play by Morgan Mooney-McCarthy powered Davis to a 3-0 win over the Sunnyvale Inferno.

Infinity took their only loss on the tournament in the championship game, falling 2-0 despite making a furious second-half comeback attempt against the Mountain View Shockwave. Midfielder Bryn Wieking and defenders Julia Kelsch and Addie O’Hanlon played well in the loss.

Warning

The Davis Warning, a U12 girls team, went 4-0 on their way to winning the Pacifica Fog Classic Tournament.

Every local player recorded either a goal, assist or save to help the Warning take the title with a 3-1 victory over another Davis team, the Frost, in the championship contest. In all, the Warning outscored their opponents 16-3 during the tournament, including wins over Pacifica, Mountain View and Menlo Park.

The Davis offense was guided by Sasha Ballowe, Meghan Eisenman, Gia Fanucchi and Fiona Stachan-Payne, who combined to net 15 of the 16 goals. The midfield work of Abigail Johnson and Delaney Seward earned each of them sportsmanship awards and the praise of their entire Warning team, while the local defense — which was paced by Leah Pinto, Averi Brayton, Angela Herrera and goalie Alondra Arambula — set the tone for the tournament title.

Domination

The Davis Domination, a U12 girls team, won all four of its games, surrendering only one goal at the Pacifica Fog Classic, but missed the championship game by one point and had to settle for third place.

In the tournament opener, a late goal from Alissa Casillas, off an assist from Julia Alberton, was the difference in the Domination’s 1-0 win over San Bruno.

Davis then beat Menlo Park, 2-1, as Mitchelle Atungulu’s first-half goal had the locals in the lead for most of the contest. Once the Fireballs finally found the net, Lucia Ferrer set up Laurel Krovetz for the game-winner.

The Domination lived up to their name against the Mountain View Blast, winning 5-0 as Atungulu scored twice, Ferrer, Chella Grattet and Allison Ayers had single tallies and assists came from Claire Duisenberg and Claire Stevens.

Defense from Davis’ Caroline Duncan and Sara Ludden were key in 2-0 win over the Mountain View Intensity that solidified third place.

Stampede

The Davis Stampede, a U12 girls team, took second place in the Legacy’s Super Clásico tournament held last week in its hometown.

The locals were challenged early in a 4-1 loss to the USA Stars, the region’s toughest U12 girls squad. After going down 2-0, the Stampede cut the lead in half on Allie Belafsky powerful blast from the right wing, but that was as close as they came.

Davis bounced back quickly, shutting out Loomis, 3-0, behind Jordan Davis’ hat trick and assists from Lily Byrne and Sydney Moore.

The tough defense — paced by Grace Barger and Lindsey Vernau — continued in a 4-0 victory over Woodland. Byrne started things off with a goal from the 18, Davis tallied two more goals — one off an assist from Yasmeen Dmeiri — then Byrne finished the Stampede scoring with a penalty kick.

Davis’ wins and goal differential set up a rematch with the USA Stars in the championship contest. The  locals got down early but made a comeback that came up just short in a 4-3 loss. Good Stampede defense was led by Skye Shaffer, Sophie Karperos and keeper McKenna Lutzker.

Lightning

The Davis Lightning, a U10 boys team, won its second straight tournament last weekend, capturing the Pacifica Fog Classic.

Davis started strong, easily handling the Pacifica Pirates, 5-0, and the Pleasant Hill Untouchables, 4-0. A late goal from Connor Clark — the only tally of the game — then sent the Lightning past Mountain View, setting up a title match against Cupertino.

After the first half ended in a tie, Keenan Busse’s hat trick led a second-half charge and the locals prevailed, 7-1.

Throughout the tournament, the Lightning defense was stellar, with keepers Neil Smith and Nick Kennedy surrendering only two goals over four games. Captain Ethan Schroeder had an assist from defense and Jacob Perez scored as well as stopping the Crushers’ attack.

Clark (seven goals) led the Davis scoring, with Cavan Schraner (four goals, two assists) helping out up front and strikers Jaiden Temple and Carson Whitehead each tallying.
