For the first four and a half innings of Monday’s road trip, the Davis High softball team was playing Del Oro even.

A five-pitch stretch in the bottom of the fifth, however, did in the Blue Devils in a 4-1 loss.

The pitches, a four-pitch walk followed by a first-pitch home run, were the only blemish on an otherwise masterful start by DHS freshman Audrey Dufresne.

“Audrey pitched really well,” said Devil coach Art Guerra, whose team is now 4-9.

And though the local offense sputtered with just three hits, a sparkling defensive performance kept the game close.

With her team trailing 1-0 in the bottom of the fourth, Davis senior center fielder Danielle Styers killed a two-on, one-out rally by catching a fly ball then nailing a runner at the plate. Guerra said Emily Ginn’s play at second base also was key.

Styers and Gin, a junior, each had hits for the Blue Devils, who scored their only run in the top of the fifth.

After senior Maddie Asta walked, junior Dominique Sommer sacrificed her to second. Sophomore Faith Harlan followed with an RBI single, tying the contest at 1-1.

But the two-run homer came in the bottom of the frame, giving the Golden Eagles (6-5-1) the lead for good.

“Their one swing of the bat was better than our one swing of the bat,” Guerra said.

DHS is right back in the saddle as Sheldon comes to town Tuesday for a 4:15 p.m. game.
