EL DORADO HILLS — The Davis High girls basketball team seemed comfortable in the first few moments of Thursday’s Oak Ridge Tournament opener against West Campus.

But that was about it.

In losing 59-43, the Lady Blue Devils took a quick 6-0 lead and then …

“It just fell apart from there,” said DHS coach Karen Foster. “I can’t tell you exactly what happened, the girls were just out of sync. The effort wasn’t there and that’s unusual for these girls. This is an experienced bunch and they usually put up more of a fight.”

After that initial flurry, the Warriors took a timeout, then proceeded to score the next 19 points of the game. The two squads put in eight points apiece in the second period, but that still left the Devils — who shot just 11 percent in the first half — trailing 27-14 at intermission.

“It was just a bad game,” Foster said. “We just have to chalk it up and let it go. We need to regroup.”

With its offense struggling, Davis (3-2) is used to relying on its defense, but West was on fire, hitting 9-of-19 shots from 3-point range.

“Give them credit; they made some of them from pretty deep,” Foster said. “They really shot the ball well.”

All in all, it was too much for the locals to overcome, especially with only 10 players available. The Blue Devils were playing without Sophie Seng, usually the first player off the bench, because of illness, and backup point guard Kelly Goedde-Matthews, who has been out since the first game of the season with an injury.

In addition, DHS was coming off of Tuesday contest in which it was never challenged by Armijo. The 55-11 win may have contributed to the Lady Devils not having their edge on Thursday.

“We played so well against quality teams like Campolindo and Carondelet (last weekend) and then facing a team like that … it just doesn’t help,” Foster said.

Davis did have two bright spots against the Warriors as Emma Stenz posted a double-double with game highs of 15 points and 11 rebounds, while Sarah Bloise grabbed nine boards to go with her six points.

“Emma really fought for every rebound and Sarah Bloise did a good job off the bench. She was really our only spark (Thursday),” Foster said.

Because of the way the tournament is set up, DHS is still in the winners bracket and will face host Oak Ridge on Friday at 7 p.m.
