Blue Devil girls come up short in DVC soccer opener

From page B1 | April 02, 2013 |

ELK GROVE — Sometimes spring break isn’t all fun and games. And sometimes it’s games, but not necessarily fun.

Playing Sac-Joaquin Section finalist Franklin High on the road — while Davis schools are on hiatus — the Blue Devil girls soccer team provided a rousing defensive display but fell, 1-0, in their Delta Valley Conference opener on Monday.

“I wasn’t unhappy with our play,” explained second-year DHS coach Sara Stone. “It was a pretty equal game.”

With the contest scoreless at intermission, it wasn’t until halfway through the second half that the Wildcats (7-3, 1-0) broke through.

Sophomore wing Lauren Williams found Franklin forward Tatyana Garrett open inside with a terrific cross. When the senior put the pass away, it meant the ‘Cats would take their third win in their last five meetings with Davis. The Devils won one of those and the two squads tied the other.

“It’s kind of ironic that those were the two (Franklin) girls we were game-planning for,” Stone added. “Now I think we’ll be even more prepared when we play them again.”

Stone felt spring break “kind of knocks us off our routine.” She said it wasn’t an excuse, but while the Sacramento schools are in session, DHS is out of the classroom.

“We have to find ways to be more dangerous on offense,” Stone told The Enterprise after watching her team and Franklin each take 10 shots in the back-and-forth contest.

Davis had not played a game since last Tuesday — a not-very-challenging 6-0 nonleague win over Vacaville.

On Monday, Stone liked the play of senior goalie Maddy Purves, who the coach said “make several very nice saves,” and she praised Kylie Tierney and Olivia Haass for solid defensive efforts on the back wall.

DHS (8-4-1) next plays struggling Laguna Creek (0-7-2) next Monday at Yudin Field. Game time is slated for 4 p.m.

Notes: Franklin was 18-5-2 (9-0-1 in DVC) and waltzed its way through the 2012 CIF postseason before dropping the championship game, 2-1, to St. Mary’s. Davis finished 20-3-2 and was knocked out in the second round, 2-0, by Folsom. … Stone said her girls came out of the league opener in relatively good shape. … Since 2009, DHS is 5-3-1 against Franklin.
