DHS girls lock up Lincoln in water polo first round

Using the combination of its potent offense and some good defense at the 2-meter position, the Davis High girls water polo team won its opening-round match, 15-5, over Lincoln in the Sac-Joaquin Section tournament.

Playing Friday at Johansen High, the four-time defending section champion Blue Devils got off to a 7-0 first-period lead and never looked back.

“It was good,” said DHS head coach Doug Wright. “Everyone got to play and we got a good feel for being in (the section tournament).

“Our goal is to win, obviously, then make adjustments and get better with each game.”

Junior Colby Stapleton may not be able to play much better than she did on Friday, as she played great defense and led the Devils with five goals.

“Colby was dominant, making steals and scoring,” Wright said. “We were probably just too strong for them on the perimeter.”

Senior Lauren Owens added a hat trick for Davis, while sophomore Kendall Doten scored twice and was part of a strong defensive performance against Lincoln’s standout 2-meter player.

“Kendall Doten and (senior) Haley Blackwell both did a really good job on her,” Wright said. “It was nice because sometimes in the first round you don’t get challenged as much, so it was good to have to apply ourselves in that area.”

Heather Johnson and Mara Dominguez, who each made 5-meter shots, Alyssa Alvarez, Kinsey Van Deynze and Emme Van Vorhis rounded out the Blue Devils scoring with one goal each.

Top-seeded DHS next faces Downey — who in the first round beat Nevada Union, 11-10, in overtime — on Monday at 8 a.m. at Tokay High. A win there puts the Devils in the Wednesday semifinals.
