Blue Devils have wicked JV softball stretch

In a hectic week of rain makeups and a rugged slate of games in the Clash of the Titans Tournament in Antelope, the Davis High junior varsity softball squad went 5-2 in six days.

During the week, pitcher Sarah Allen-Sutter picked up three victories — including a mercy-rule-shortened no-hitter on Saturday against El Camino.

A look back at the Antelope schedule:

Davis 7, El Camino 0 — Maddie Asta was 2-for-2 with a double and two runs batted in. Emily Gunn, Ashley Dufresne, Allen-Sutter and Asta fueled a three-run outburst in the fifth inning, and Danielle Styers and Dominique Sommer played solid defense in support of Allen-Sutter’s no-hit effort.

Roseville 7, Davis 0 — Styers’ double leading off the game was one of the few bright spots as the Blue Devils couldn’t solve pitcher Sara Bordwiak. The other DHS hits came from Neia Wixson and Dufresne.

Afield, Ginn threw out Bordwiak on a steal attempt and Asta was solid on the left side of the diamond.

Pioneer 4, Davis 3 — The Patriots rallied from a 3-2 deficit to win in the bottom of the seventh.

Dufresne went 3-for-4 and Wixson and Allen-Sutter were both 2-for-4. Pitcher Rachel Mobley recorded seven strikeouts as the starter.

Davis 5, Vacaville 0 — The Blue Devils were led by Allen-Sutter, whose brilliant pitching saw her allow just four hits and fan five Bulldogs. At the plate, Allen-Sutter was 2-for-3, with an RBI and a run scored.

Ginn tripled in the sixth and seventh-inning hits by Sommer, Wixson, Allen-Sutter and Asta gave the locals a comfortable, late lead.

Davis 6, Bella Vista 4 — Mobley got the decision and DeMarco the save as Madi Yule doubled and singled, driving home two runs. Styers had a couple of two-baggers and scored twice, while Olivia Schmidt and Asta had important RBIs.

In non-tournament action …

Davis 5, Yuba City 2 — Last Wednesday, the Devils traveled north and let the defense of Wixson, Styers and Ginn keep the Honkers off the base paths, while Allen-Sutter began her remarkable mound streak with an eight-hitter, striking out six.

Allen-Sutter’s fourth-inning single put DHS ahead and Asta’s key safety gave the Devils some breathing room. Later, Dufresne’s deep double put the icing on the cake.

Davis 16, Florin 0 — Thanks in part to 10 walks, DHS made its eight hits count for big totals.

Ginn was 2-for-3 with a double and two runs batted in, Styers was 2-for-2 with a double and two RBIs and winning pitcher DeMarco and Sommer both drove in a couple of runs.

DeMarco fanned 13 in twirling a one-hitter.
