Davis boys bash Bear Creek

By

MODESTO — As it is in most of its games against area opponents, Davis High\’s boys water polo team was favored to defeat Bear Creek on Friday. The difference in this contest, a Sac-Joaquin

\n

Section first-round playoff game at Johansen High, was the consequence of a loss, one slip-up and the Blue Devils\’ season will be over.

\n

But DHS made sure that didn\’t happen, scoring the first seven goals of the game on its way to an 18-5 victory over the Bruins.

\n

“It\’s always hard because this game is potentially the last game of the season,” Devil head coach Tracy Stapleton said. “We knew we were heavily favored, so we had to go out and perform that way. Each step of the way we want to raise the intensity and this was on that path.”

\n

The Blue Devils, who were 16-11 against a brutal regular season schedule, are looking to make it to the section finals for the sixth consecutive year. Against Bear Creek, the DHS defense was unforgiving and the offense was powered by Connor Stapleton (five goals) and Wade Allen (four).

\n

“(The Bruins) really couldn\’t get any kind of offensive sequence going, our defense was really good,” Tracy Stapleton said.

\n

Rounding out the scoring for Davis was Noah Friedman, Paul Dailey, Mark Ward and Graham Fullerton, with two goals each, and Tre Moynihan with one.

\n

The next challenge for the Devils is a 9 a.m. game against Merced on Tuesday at Tokay High in Lodi.

\n

“They were the second-place team in their league and they have a couple of solid players that we need to neutralize,” Stapleton said of the Bears. “Going into the game, if we play the way we are capable of, we should come out on top. Our guys want to get to that championship game.”
