The Davis Matrix, a U14 girls soccer team, extended its winning streak by getting past Winters, 3-1, Saturday on the road.

Local offensive pressure by Maddie Spangler and Fiona Strachan-Payne helped Khalida Pergher score three goals to give Davis the early lead. Meanwhile, Matrix midfielders Hana Wood, Megan Kong and Kelly Zheng kept Winters on the defense for most of the first half, while local defenders Laurel Krovetz, Nancy Avoce and Claire Williams turned away any chances that slipped through.

When the hosts ramped up the pressure after intermission, the Matrix defense held its ground in front of keepers Karynna Lopez, Erin Benedict and Strachan-Payne.

Insanity

The Davis Insanity, a U12 girls team, swept a doubleheader on Saturday at Nugget Fields, blanking Pleasant Hill (3-0) and beating Walnut Creek (3-1).

In the opener, locals Elise Jacobson and Averi Brayton scored in the first half, both off assists from Aedan Gravely, then Caroline Duncan added a tally off a rebound from Abigail Johnson’s shot. Katrina Haws and Katie Stachowicz paced the stingy Insanity defense, combining with keepers Duncan, Angela Herrera and Gravely to hold the visitors scoreless.

Just a few hours later, Davis got more good goalie work, this time from Stachowicz and Carmen Saez, before Julia Albertson broke through for a goal after Gia Fanucchi’s strong throw-in. Later, Saez finished a long run down the sideline and Maya Wood completed the local scoring.

Hurricanes

The Davis Hurricanes, a U10 girls team, bounced back from a loss to American Canyon in early January to post three consecutive victories. The first two wins came in all-Davis matchups last month and were followed by a 3-1 victory over Mount Diablo on Saturday.

After getting goals from Susana Estrada and Molly Mahoney in that early-season loss, Estrada tallied twice to lead the Hurricanes past the Davis Domination, 4-0. Charlotte Macaulay and Keiko Chan also found the net in that win.

Next, the Hurricanes edged the Davis Tsunami, 1-0, as Mahoney netted the game’s only goal.

She came back to tally from the half line on Saturday to spark the Hurricanes past Mount Diablo. Chan and Macaulay added goals of Davis in that contest, while Devon Morris was aggressive in goal and Kiana Bagheban was reliable as a defender.

Legacy 98

The Davis Legacy 98 boys, a U16 team, had just one substitute for Saturday’s road matchup against the Monarcas Aztec Warriors. The Stockton squad is ranked No. 1 in the nation in that age group and won the game, 4-1, but the undermanned locals rose to the challenge, taking a 1-1 tie into halftime.

Davis’ goal came from guest player Cameron Peuse, who scored off a long assist from Ethan Hessl. Throughout the opening half, the locals’ aggressive play and good ball control led to several other opportunities.

But the Monarcas turned up the intensity in the second half, quickly taking a 3-1 lead. The talented team even blocked a Davis penalty kick.

Alliance Academy tryouts

Davis Alliance Soccer Academy will conduct soccer tryouts for its fall season on Saturday and Sunday, Feb. 15-16, in both Woodland and Davis. For age groups and times, visit www.davisalliance.org.

Davis Alliance is the only club in the Davis/Woodland area that offers both competitive and recreational-level soccer through the largest statewide league in California, CYSA. This is the club’s fifth year.

“Our players have the opportunity to continue to play on the same team for multiple seasons,” a news release said. “We have an experienced group of licensed coaches that concentrates on the development and training of each player.”

Registration costs $150 per player for the competitive level and $81 for a club Adidas uniform kit.
