The Davis Knights, a U13 boys lacrosse team, fell to the Chico Rebels, 8-7, last weekend.
After three quick Chico goals, Sion Gellen won the face-off and scored the first point for Davis. After two more Chico scores, Liam Condon met the net for the Knights’ second goal.
Gion then scored again, off an assist by Joe Blakewell, followed by another by Justin Reno.
In the second half, Condon and Rowan Hart led Davis in ground balls, with help from Tristan Cotter, Paul Buhlman and Hunter Harris.
The Knights scored three times in the fourth quarter to nearly catch Chico. First, Gellen put in his second goal, then Buhlman used a nice pass to set up Hart. Later, Reno provided the assist on a Garret Spanglet goal late in the game, but that was as close as Davis would come.

The Davis Knights Navy, a U11 boys team, competed at the Stockton Jamboree on Saturday, making it all the way to the championship match.
