Blue Devil girls earn postseason soccer No. 1 seed

From page B3 | May 05, 2013 |

Davis High has been awarded the No. 1 seed in the Sac-Joaquin Section girls soccer tournament, CIF officials announced Friday afternoon.

The ranking provides the Blue Devils a Tuesday first-round game against struggling Vallejo (6-9-2) and ensures home-field advantage until the postseason arrives at Cosumnes Oaks High for the May 18 finale.

Davis has won 12 of its last 13 games, while finishing the regular season with a 17-4-1 record. Davis tied Franklin (15-3, 9-1) for the Delta Valley Conference title.

But the Wildcats, who split two games with the Devils, were dropped to a No. 3 seeding when Delta River League winner St. Francis (12-1-7) earned the second seed in the tourney.

Davis is ranked seventh in California by MaxPreps, Franklin is 12th and St. Francis is considered by the online high school service to be the state’s No. 3 school.

In the short-period St. Mary’s Tournament, the Devils nipped the Troubadours, 1-0.

Vallejo tied for third place in the Solano County Athletic League (won by D-II Benicia). Vallejo and Davis haven’t met since their days together in the Monticello Empire League seven seasons ago.

CIF suggests 3:30 p.m. start times for the playoffs, but, according to DHS Athletic Director Dennis Foster, Davis has asked Vallejo officials for a 7 p.m. kickoff. Foster says Vallejo has yet to respond.

Notes: The playoffs are in divisions based solely on school enrollment. Therefore, DVC third-place finisher Elk Grove finds itself as the D-II 12-seed and headed for No. 5 Rocklin. Last season’s D-I champ St. Mary’s is 18-4-3 and the champions of the Tri-Cities Athletic League find themselves in D-II, a fourth seed. St. Mary’s has been in 10 CIF D-I title games, winning five. Franklin meets Lincoln of Stockton. … If Davis advances, on Thursday it hosts the winner of Granite Bay/Turlock. Complete brackets are available at www.sjs.org.
