It feel like the Davis High boys soccer team has played half a season, but it’s only been eight grueling days.

On Tuesday, the Blue Devils put an exclamation point on that stretch by going on the road to top Capital Christian 1-0.

DHS (5-1-2) was to play its ninth match in as many days on Wednesday but a game at Granite Bay was mercifully rescheduled for Sept. 20.

In beating the Cougars (3-1), the Devils got a first-half goal from Joe Rainer, who took a setup from D.J. Villegas, beat a couple of defenders and put the ball away.

“It was a great game, a close game and we played really well,” said Davis coach Alex Park. “To be so banged up and physically tired (and play this well), I’m very proud of them.

“Capital Christian is a really good team. They are tall and fast and they hadn’t lost a game.”

One of the Cougars’ wins came over Jesuit of Portland in a game played in Oregon. That Jesuit squad was coming off of a tie against the Jesuit of Sacramento, a regional and national power, and one of the Blue Devils’ biggest rivals.

In Tuesday’s win, Park praised his entire defense for posting the shutout and said Villegas, his talented junior, was all over the field.

“He was unbelievable, making plays and controlling the midfield,” Park explained. “That was his best of game of the season.”

After the long stretch of games, Park added that practices will be light as DHS prepares for its next match, a home encounter with Marin Academy on Monday at 4 p.m.
