Republic coach not happy despite seven goals

SACRAMENTO — One week after being stretchered off the field with what looked like a serious ankle injury, Republic FC forward Tommy Stewart was back to his scoring ways in a 7-3 Sacramento win over fourth-division Chula Vista FC in the third round of the U.S. Open Cup. When the Northern Irishman scored the third goal […]

Stewart hat trick gives Republic an Open Cup win

SACRAMENTO — Just when the Republic FC thought it was getting goals from the forward position, the injury bug hit Sacramento again on Wednesday night. Though they’re currently second in the USL in goals, one thing that has been missing from the Republic offense is scoring from the forward position. Through 10 games, the Sacramento forwards have […]

Seitz brings world-class pedigree to Friday’s lecture

With hostile crowds and controversial decisions, the world of soccer can be a crazy and intimidating place. Perhaps no one understands this better than the center referee, who is subject to ridicule, and sometimes threats, depending on his or her perceived performance during the match. Few referees have more experience with this than Kari Seitz, an […]

Both Blue Devil track squads primed for section run

Coming off a pair of Delta League titles, the Davis High boys and girls track teams are a confident bunch heading into this week’s Sac Joaquin Section championships. And if Blue Devil head coach Spencer Elliott has his way, his squads will follow up last week’s league crowns with section titles at Elk Grove High (prelims Wednesday and finals Friday). […]

Playoff run ends abruptly for DHS soccer

It wasn’t supposed to end this way. With the No. 1 seed, a perfect home record, and exceeding 100 more goals scored than conceded, the Davis High girls soccer team looked like it might cruise to the Sac-Joaquin Section title. Instead, longtime rival St. Francis upset the Blue Devils, 1-0, in front of a crowd of […]

Davis’ depth is key to unpredictable section swim finals

For Davis High swimming coach Tracy Stapleton, there’s no use predicting the outcome of the Sac-Joaquin Section title meet, purely due to the large amount of variables involved in such an event. So when his Blue Devil girls and boys take to the Tokay High (Lodi) pool for this weekend’s championships, all he’s expecting is that both […]

Republic get back to winning ways at Bonney

SACRAMENTO — A year after finishing as a USL MVP runner-up, Sacramento’s Rodrigo Lopez is making his case to take home the award in 2015. It was Lopez’s goal and assist — his sixth goal of the season to go with three helpers — that was the difference in putting the Republic FC (5-4) back […]

Davis girls get revenge one year later

Twice last year, the Davis High girls soccer team dominated McClatchy for the entire 80 minutes of a game. Twice the Blue Devils came up short by just a goal, most notably in a first-round playoff loss in Sacramento that has been a talking point for DHS ever since. It seemed to be fate that brought […]

Devils crush Edison to earn McClatchy rematch

It was exactly the easy win that was expected, but for the Davis High girls soccer team, it was an improvement on last year’s disappointing playoff run. After losing in the opening round of the 2014 Sac-Joaquin Section tournament — as the No. 9 seed against McClatchy — the Blue Devils easily dispatched No. 16 Edison […]

Trifecta of Devil teams open playoffs Tuesday

A trio of competitive Davis High sports teams open their Sac-Joaquin Section postseason runs at different venues around the area Tuesday. Winners of the new Delta League, the Blue Devil boys tennis and girls soccer teams will be looked on as favorites in their respective tournaments, while the DHS boys golf squad could make some noise as well, […]

Bike Polo: Get off your high horse

The modded bikes sit at rest on opposite sides of the tennis-court sized playing surface, split three on each side, their riders staring down the center of the court. A woman dressed in clip-in bike shoes, knee-high shin guards, jeans shorts, a purple tank and a fluorescent blue flat-billed hat walks over to the beer […]

Devil soccer girls are conference champions at last

It wasn’t so much of a game as it was a coronation for the new Delta League champions. On a warm and sunny Senior Night at Yudin Field, the Davis High girls soccer team easily defeated Monterey Trail, 11-0, on Wednesday to win its first non-shared league title under the stewardship of fourth-year head coach […]

Devil volleyballers inch closer to playoffs

On paper, the Davis High boys volleyball team came into Tuesday’s pivotal Delta League home match as a heavy favorite over Franklin. Though the Blue Devils let the visiting Wildcats stay close in all three games, there would be no upset as DHS notched a 25-17, 25-19, 25-21 victory at The Cage to improve to 6-5 […]

Reeling Blue Devils stop skid against Sheldon

The mid-season slump is finally over. Facing an inferior, but dangerous Sheldon team, the Davis High boys volleyball team picked up an imperative 25-17, 25-13, 25-23 win Thursday night at The Cage to move back into the Delta League playoff picture. The Blue Devils started their conference schedule on fire, winning four of their first […]
