ELK GROVE — All 14 Davis High field players scored on Tuesday as the Blue Devil girls went to Wackford Pool and put a 19-0 drubbing on Laguna Creek.
Junior Lara Vanderbilt and senior Monica Ferrera had hat tricks for DHS (5-1), while juniors Amelia Ziegler and Jessica Hughes scored two goals each.
“To make sections you have to be in the top three of your league so these are the types of games you want to make sure you put away,” said Devil coach Doug Wright. “I have a lot of respect for Laguna Creek, the coach does a good job and they have a lot of players that come out. Sometimes it just comes down to experience.”
Also for Davis, single tallies came from Heather Johnson, Emme Van Vorhis, Alyssa Alvarez, Mara Dominguez, Zoei Nijjar, Lauren Owens, Haley Blackwell, Kendall Doten, Kinsey Van Deynze and junior standout Colby Stapleton, who saw her first action of the season coming off of an injury.
Wright was happy to see Stapleton back and also liked that his girls took some initiative in the water:
“We’ve been working on reinforcing some concepts in practice and it was cool to see the girls take it upon themselves to work on that stuff in the game,” said the veteran coach.
Local fans will have their first chance to see the Blue Devils on Tuesday when Oak Ridge comes to Arroyo Pool at 6 p.m.
