Blue Devil boys need Mohr against Monterey Trail

\n

A big-time performance by senior Tim Mohr, in his return from a broken wrist, wasn\’t enough to provide a life preserver to the Davis High boys basketball team\’s sinking ship.

\n

The Blue Devils\’ losing streak hit 11 games on Friday as they fell at home to Monterey Trail, 72-49.

\n

In his first game back after missing the past six contests, Mohr scored 18 points, but DHS dropped to 0-3 in Delta Valley Conference play and 7-12 overall.

\n

“(Mohr\’s return is) going to make a world of difference,” said Davis head coach Dan Gonzalez. “I think he\’s a little rusty and still doesn\’t have his legs under him, but he\’ll get better.”

\n

Even while easing back in, Mohr was 7-for-12, however, the rest of the Devils made just 13-of-45 shots from the floor (29 percent) and a dismal 4-of-16 free throws. The Mustangs (14-5, 2-1 DVC), on the other hand, scorched the nets, hitting 57 percent of their field goals.

\n

DHS held tight until late in the first period, when Monterey Trail\’s Jaylen Brown drained a jumper and pair of free throws, before Jessie Brown scored on a lay-in to push the Mustang advantage to 19-10.

\n

Monterey Trail continued to pull away from Davis in the second quarter when a mid-range jumper from Hermon Brown extended its lead to 29-15.

\n

But Mohr, with his right wrist taped up, refused to let the Mustangs put the Devils away. The athletic swingman hit from the top of the key, made a layup off a steal by Kevin Sorensen, and a long trey from the wing at the halftime buzzer, igniting the DHS crowd.

\n

Davis trailed just 29-27 at the break, then moments into the third quarter, Tyler Sousa nailed a jump shot from the wing to even the game at 29-29.

\n

But Monterey Trail had an answer for what ended up being a 14-0 Devil run.

\n

MT\’s Stedman Saunders knocked down a trey and drove hard to the rim for a layup, giving the Mustangs a 38-31 advantage they would never relinquish.

\n

After Monterey Trail entered the fourth quarter ahead 45-36, Mohr\’s dagger 3-pointer reeled in the Mustangs at 45-39. Moments later, Brian Hensley gave DHS fans one last hope when his long-range trey cut the lead to 49-44 with 5:13 left in the game.

\n

But after that, Monterey Trail got hot and things got ugly for the Devils.

\n

Brandon Ogle knocked down three treys and a fastbreak layup to cap an 18-3 Mustang spurt that pushed the lead to 67-47.

\n

“We just ran out of gas in the second half,” Gonzalez said.

\n

With the loss, DHS inched closer to the 13-game slide of the 2007-08 squad.

\n

Davis gets its next chance to stop its skid when Franklin comes to town for a Wednesday outing. Tip-off for the DVC matchup is at 7 p.m. at the DHS gym.
