JV/frosh roundup: Blue Devil basketball squads fare well

From page B2 | January 02, 2013 |

In winning two of its three games at last weekend’s Dixon Ram Jam, the Davis High junior varsity girls basketball team captured the consolation trophy, and improved its record to 8-6 on the season.

In their tournament opener, the Lady Blue Devils faced Inderkum, a team who came into the tournament with just one loss.

Although DHS played the Tigers even for the first half, the Devils could not capitalize on late-game mistakes by their opponents and fell 35-29.

Sophie Seng led Davis with seven points and five rebounds, while point guards Sarah Sherwin (five points) and Kelly Gooede-Matthews (four) added scoring punch. In addition, Essence Moore paced the Blue Devils with seven rebounds and wing Alaina King tallied four steals. Sarah Cordano provided energy off the bench with four points.

In the next game, against Golden Sierra, DHS overcame ice-cold shooting early to post a 41-12 victory.

Seng once again led the Devils with 10 points and King’s six points went along with a season-high nine steals. Gooede-Matthews poured in a season-high eight points for the locals, while the Davis bench came up big behind Emily Lopez-Ichikawa (game-high 11 rebounds) and Faith Harlan (six points and eight boards).

Facing a physical American Canyon squad in the consolation championship, the Blue Devil defense took over for a 27-25 victory.

After a relatively fast offensive start, the two teams combined for only 30 points in the final three quarters, and Seng provided the only fourth-quarter field goal for DHS when she converted a steal into a layup with three minutes remaining. Seng and Gooede-Mathews each had eight points for the Devils and King contributed six points and five steals.

Moore grabbed 10 rebounds for the Blue Devils, who won for the seventh time in nine games.

By running away with a 76-19 victory over an overmatched Woodland High squad on Friday, the Blue Devils improved to 10-2 on the season.

Despite playing without three players, DHS’ eight-man team rolled to a 39-7 halftime lead and never looked back.

Four Devils scored in double figures, paced by Drew Gnos, who had 17 points, five rebounds and three steals.

Davis’ Carl Burton-Hill dominated on the glass, grabbing 16 rebounds to go with 15 points and two assists, while Ryan Kreidler tallied 14 points, four boards and six steals. Glen Welch added 14 points, three rebounds and two steals; Kevin Austin logged six points, six boards and four assists; and Bailey Yarrow contributed five points, three assists and three rebounds.

Rounding out the Blue Devil effort was Andrew Bolich, with five points, four rebounds and two steals, and Liam Neville (three boards, one steal).
