By From page B1 | January 26, 2014

ELK GROVE — All 13 Lady Blue Devils scored on Friday as the Davis High girls basketball team blasted Laguna Creek, 84-45, in a Delta Valley Conference road outing.

With the win, DHS improved to 3-0 in league play and 13-6 overall.

“We just played a great all-around game,” Devil coach Karen Foster told The Enterprise. “We’re off to a pretty good start (in the DVC). The girls are playing well and shooting much better. I’m really pleased with everyone’s effort and output.”

On Friday, that hot shooting was on full display as Davis canned 57 percent even with Foster mixing up the lineups. Senior La’Rell Cato led the way for the Lady Blue Devils with 11 points and 11 rebounds, while junior Caitlin Mazzoleni and sophomore Rachael Allison added 10 points each. Sophie Seng contributed eight points and eight boards, while JV call-up Alyssa Lengtat matched that rebound total and scored five points.

“La’Rell was the player of the game,” Foster said. “Sophie Seng played really well and I was really pleased with (Lengtat), she’s really going to help us.”

Seven points from Jamie Bautista; six from Emma Stenz and Kelly Goedde-Matthews; five from Anna Belenis, Katie Grahn and Alaina King and three apeice from Sarah Bloise and Arianne Rusanganwa rounded out the DHS scoring.

Belenis added seven assists for the Devils, who also excelled on the defensive end, forcing more than 40 Cardinal turnovers.

Davis took a 17-13 lead after one period than exploded for 31 points in the second quarter to take a 48-25 advantage into halftime.

The Blue Devils are back on the road Tuesday at Monterey Trail before returning home to face Grant on Friday (7 p.m.).
