BRIEFS: DHS can’t break through at Grant

By
October 15, 2010 |

SACRAMENTO ÑÊÒWeÕve just hit one of those spells.Ó

Davis High boys soccer coach Ashley Yudin didnÕt sound too concerned after a scoreless tie against Grant on the road Thursday. But thereÕs no doubt the Devils need to start converting on their opportunities.

On Tuesday, DHS was scoreless for over 80 minutes before finding the net with two seconds remaining in extra time to tie Franklin. Then the Devils went another 80 minutes without a goal against the Pacers.

ÒWe played well,Ó Yudin said. ÒThey are a strong team and it was on their turf. They really wanted to win and we actually gave them a few chances, but we had many more opportunities than they did, we just couldnÕt put one in.Ó

Davis got another strong game from Quinn Kesser.

ÒHe keeps the ball on his feet, even on that turf, and he is just a deadly passer,Ó said Yudin.

The Blue Devils will stay on the road for contests at Vacaville on Saturday (at 5:30 p.m.) and Laguna Creek on Tuesday.

Great West football

South Dakota head football coach Ed Meierkort is in some hot water because of his comments about the officiating crew on Saturday following UC DavisÕ 17-13 Homecoming win over the Coyotes.

On Thursday, the Great West Conference office handed down a reprimand to Meierkort.

ÒThe GWC cannot tolerate the content of the comments made by Coach Meierkort about officiating,Ó conference commissioner Ed Grom said in a release. ÒCoaches serve as representatives of their teams and their respective universities and clearly cannot conduct themselves in that fashion. I understand that tensions can be high during a highly competitive conference game, but Coach Meierkort violated a league policy regarding negative comments on officials and officiating.Ó

South Dakota seemed most upset about two pass key pass interference calls ÑÊone in the first quarter and another in the fourth period Ñ and felt that the refs incorrectly called a fumble on CoyotesÕ quarterback Dante Warren with just under 13 minutes to play.

ÒI can see why the Great West is disbanding,Ó Meierkort told the Sioux Falls Argus Leader. ÒI donÕt want to take any credit away from UC Davis but IÕve never seen a team get homered like our team got homered (Saturday night). That was ridiculous. You know me, I do not gripe about officiating after games, but thatÕs the worst officiated game that affected the outcome that IÕve ever been a part of in 18 years as a head coach.Ó

The South Dakota head coach also added:

ÒIt makes me physically sick to see my players work so hard to win a game only to have a crew of egotistical officials get caught up in the hype of a game and directly affect the outcome. IÕm embarrassed for the league. ThereÕs no way to resolve it so we will move on.Ó

The Coyotes were called for eight penalties and marked off for 69 yards during the game. One play after the Aggies recovered WarrenÕs fumble, Dean Rogers caught a 39-yard touchdown pass for what turned out to be the game-winning points.

Savage to be honored

On Saturday, River Cats Independence Field will be dedicated to the memory of former majority owner Art Savage, who died last November.

Savage his wife Susan brought the River Cats to Sacramento and were very active in the community. In particular, the River Cats Foundation has supported Access Leisure programs for people with disabilities, which included being the title sponsor for the River Cats Independence Field project.

RCIF is a completely barrier-free baseball field, where athletes of all ages and abilities compete in team sports year-round. The rubberized surface of the field allows players with disabilities to independently negotiate the infield and outfield with ease.
