ELK GROVE — After two full high school girls soccer games this season, nothing is settled between Davis and rival Franklin.

The two Sac-Joaquin Section finalists last spring — with the Wildcats taking the title — played to a scoreless tie on Wednesday at Franklin, their second deadlock of the season.

A March 24 meeting, in the Delta Valley Conference opener for both teams, ended in a 2-2 tie.

After Wednesday’s result, the Blue Devils (11-2-3) are 3-1-2 in league play, the Wildcats are 3-0-3 and both squads are looking forward to a rematch in the SJS playoffs.

“Hopefully, the third time will be the charm,” said DHS coach Sara Stone. “I think we’ve been the better soccer team both times, (Wednesday) we just couldn’t find the back of the net. We are going to continue to get better and smarter and more fit.”

Stone said the Devil offense was working well and creating some really good-quality chances. Front-line players Julia Curtis, Sophia Hernandez and Suleikha Sutter each had dangerous opportunities and Gaby Herrera’s vision was invaluable at center midfield.

However, the physical Franklin defense — which Stone said bordered on dirty as the refs let things get rough — didn’t let one through.

“Our offense was really working as a unit and being creative,” Stone said. “I can’t complain about anything my team did, they all gave 100-percent effort. For a game like this, when the girls are leaving it all out there, the officials should be at that level, too.”

Though Davis never found the net, its defense made sure the same was true for the Wildcats. Makenna Rubenstein was especially effective against Franklin’s attackers and goalie Christina Roeckl-Navazio made two key saves.

The Blue Devils take a break from DVC play to host McClatchy on Monday (5 p.m.), then get back to conference matchups a week later with an April 21 home match against Grant.
