It was a powerful field at the 2013 Fall Classic tournament this weekend at UC Davis’ Schaal Aquatics Center, so strong that the Davis High girls water polo team, one of the top squads in the region, lost all three of its games.

But for Blue Devil coach Doug Wright, the results were less important than playing well against some of the best teams Northern California had to offer.

“It was a great weekend, a weekend about getting better — and we did that,” Wright said.

And DHS (15-7) faced what could be the top three squads in NorCal, beginning with a 6-3 loss to undefeated an No. 1-ranked San Ramon on Friday.

The Devils, who are ranked around sixth according to Wright, then dropped a 7-5 decision to No. 3 St. Francis of Mountain View earlier Saturday, and fell to Campolindo, 8-1.

But the scores don’t tell the whole story …

“Against St. Francis, we had a great first half and led 5-2 at the half,” Wright explained. “We actually played pretty well in the second half too, we competed hard but just couldn’t put shots away.

“Then we were down 7-0 at the half to Campolindo and tied them 1-1 in the second half, against their starters. In that second half we played outstanding halfcourt and transition defense.”

Heather Johnson led the locals in scoring for the weekend, which featured 27 different teams competing at the UCD pool. Johnson scored the lone Davis tally in the loss to Campolindo, a few hours after pacing the Blue Devils with a pair of goals against St. Francis. In that contest, Mara Dominguez, Lauren Owens and Kendall Doten each found the net once for DHS.

In Friday’s outing, Dominguez, Kinsey Van Deynze and Colby Stapleton scored one goal apiece.

The Devils are back in the water on Tuesday for a home league match against Monterey Trail (4:45 p.m.), before another tough opponent, Rio Americano, is at Arroyo Pool on Thursday at 4 p.m. The Thursday game is Davis’ last home appearance of the season.
