Youth sports roundup: AC Milan captures Lake Oswego Nike Cup

From page B2 | August 08, 2013 |

AC Milan, a U-15 boys soccer team, won the Lake Oswego Nike Cup in Portland, Ore., with four decisive victories.
The defense dominated the first game as the backline of Jovanni Morales, Dan Shuman, Kyle Cuvelier and Buddhika Ratnasiri shut down Estrella de Chile (Canada). Cameron Peuse, Camilo Rodriguez, Jaleel Dmeiri and Santiago Moreno scored for Davis.
Milan then crushed Portland’s Aloha Gunner 7-0, with two goals each from Matteo Sorrentino, Peuse and Rodriguez, and one from Ricky Gonzales.
In the semifinal, they finally gave up a goal to Mustang Lokomotiv (Calif.) but excellent play by keeper Roberto Ortiz and two goals by Rodriguez and one by Peuse gave them the 3-1 victory. Isaiah Alba, Bobby Scott and Sam Elmwood ruled the midfield and dished out numerous assists. Milan faced Estrella de Chile again in the final.
For the third game in a row, Rodriguez scored two goals while Sammy Walker made it 3-0 and Milan brought home the cup from Portland.

Heat U17 girls
The Davis Heat U17 girls’ soccer team was the silver finalist in the Juventus Tournament of Champions last weekend.
The Heat battled Castro Valley Fury to a 0-0 draw in the first match. Davis held the edge in the first half and keeper Christina Roeckl-Navazio made the key saves in the second to keep the match even in the last few minutes.
Davis defeated the California Odyssey 2-1 in its second game. Cal Odyssey scored first, but Emily King equalized less than a minute later off on assist from Sophia Hernandez. Hannah Thompson scored the winner for the Heat with a great shot from outside over the keeper. Katelyn Bates, Alexia Moore, Melissa Teuber, Vanessa Arellano and Madison Nicholas all provided solid defense to shut down the Odyssey in the second period.
Davis followed up its first win with a victory over the Mt. Hamilton Phantom Nemes, 4-0. Hernandez scored first with a shot in the left corner off an assist from McKenna Rubinstein; Renee Schuman struck twice first off an assist from Jaha McClean, then again off an assist from Kristin Ward. The rout of the Phantom Nemes was complete when Ward scored the fourth and final goal after a breakaway run.
Advancing to the semifinals, the Heat beat the CASA Boca Juniors 1-0 in a close match-up. The Davis midfield was in prime form with great passing, including solid efforts from Mikayla Vang and Suleikha Sutter. On the other end, forwards Sofia Evanoff and Alicia Lopez kept the pressure on Casa Boca defenders with relentless breakaway attacks. Finally, Hernandez scored the winning goal for Davis to send the team to the championship.
The Heat faced off against the tournament hosts, Juventus Avanza, in the championship round and fell behind early when Avanza converted a corner kick to go up by one. Davis had no answers as its opponents were able to go up by two more before the half. The Heat came alive in the second period but, down 3-0, it was too late to turn the tide and prevent Avanza from taking the title.
Davis Legacy ’98 boys
Davis Legacy ’98 Boys Red entered the Lake Oswego Nike Cup last month against Woodburn FC in awe of the swank facilities of Nike headquarters in Beaverton, Ore.
On Ronaldo Field, the boys pounded the goal with a barrage of shots by David Quintero, Sergio Farias and others, but they were either deflected by the keeper or sailed over the crossbar. Davis dominated with consistent ball possession but was unable to convert, losing 1-0.
In Game 2, against Cook Inlet of Alaska, the team again took control, but despite numerous opportunities and near-misses, could not find the back of the net. Scoring efforts included several excellent services by Kyle Fix and breakaways by Elgin Lovell, and at least eight to 10 high-quality shots denied by an excellent keeper. At the other end of the pitch, a spectacular diving save by Salvador Chavez preserved the tie against a very physical but less skilled Alaskan team.
Davis finally broke the ice on Saturday’s game against Oregon Crossfire with a 4-0 rout. Quintero’s corner kick found Matthew Cheung for a nice opening goal on a header. In the second half, Cheung tallied another, placing the ball expertly to the right side. Lovell and guest player Brennan also scored.
Hopes to advance were dashed ironically as Cook Inlet and Woodburn tied and Davis was eliminated. Cook Inlet later took the trophy.
