Normally, Davis High girls soccer coach Sara Stone might have been worried about her team’s slow start on Tuesday when it hosted Vacaville.

But not only did the Blue Devils turn things around quickly for a 6-0 victory over the Bulldogs, Stone knows DHS will have no trouble getting up for its next game — the Delta Valley Conference opener against Franklin.

The Devils ended last year’s league schedule in the unfamiliar position of looking up at the first-place Wildcats. It’s something the locals plan to avoid this season.

“I think the girls are really excited for that game,” Stone said of Monday’s DVC opener, scheduled for 3:30 p.m. at Franklin. “They have a little bit of revenge on their minds and I think they’ll be the most prepared that they have been all season.”

That kind of readiness was missing at the beginning of Tuesday’s game as Stone said Davis “came out flat.” Though they led 1-0 at intermission, the second-year coach told the Blue Devils she wanted to see more of a sense of urgency after the break. And she did …

“We came out without a lot of energy and we were just kind of playing it safe,” Stone said. “After we discussed a couple of things at halftime, we had more energy and attacked with numbers. Eventually we kind of broke them down with our fitness.”

Gaby Herrera, who also scored the early goal, opened the second half with a score, before DHS got single goals from Kalani Ratnasiri, Clara Goin, Makenzie Delaughder and Brooke Palmer.

“Gaby just has such a nose for the goal and is so composed,” Stone said of her freshman standout. “All of our goals were really nice goals. The second half was fun to watch.”

Notes: The Devils were scheduled to play one last nonconference game, but a Friday night home match against West Campus was canceled. … Davis is 8-3-1 heading into its DVC schedule.
