Blue Devil girls press Vallejo into submission

NAPA — An overwhelming defense gave Vallejo no chance as every Lady Blue Devil scored in a 74-21 basketball victory over the Apaches in the opening round of the Napa Valley Wine Classic on Thursday.

“We were running three different full-court presses, and all three were working,” Davis High coach Karen Foster told The Enterprise. “We were not fouling out of the traps, everybody contributed … The girls did an excellent job (Thursday).”

DHS (7-3) was coming off of a 62-37 home win over Pioneer the night before — a game in which Foster thought her team could have been more focused.

On Thursday, the Devils were razor-sharp.

Using its bench for most of the final three periods, Davis opened a 40-11 halftime lead and stretched the margin from there.

Senior post La’Rell Cato had a career night, scoring 10 points, grabbing seven rebounds, making seven steals and dishing out seven assists.

Sophomore forward Sophie Seng scored 12 points and junior guard Alaina King added 10 while junior guard Jamie Bautista had eight points and a handful of steals as everything DHS tried seemed to pay dividends.

“We got a huge spark off the bench,” Foster said. “And Kelly (Goedde-Matthews) and Anna (Belenis) were fantastic at guard.”

The Blue Devils are allowing 42 ppg through 10 outings and again played the opponent’s passing lanes well, forcing 29 turnovers. The three teams to which Davis has lost — Carondelet, Oak Ridge and West Campus — have a combined 14-4 mark.

Local veteran Emma Stenz — who came into Thursday’s contest averaging a double-double (13 points and 10 boards) — had six points while Belenis, Ariane Rusanganwa and Caitlin Mazzoleni each had four.

Vallejo fell to 3-8.

Next up for the Lady Blue Devils is Nevada Union (6-3) at 8 p.m. Friday at Napa High.

After the Napa tournament, the locals play at Yuba City (3 p.m. on Dec. 31), then get Inderkum, El Camino and Brookside Christian before opening Delta Valley Conference competition at home with Elk Grove on Jan. 17.
