It’s official. The Davis High junior varsity girls soccer team again is undefeated.

The Blue Devils put the finishing touches on their 20-0-3 campaign with a recent 2-0 home win over Elk Grove. DHS finished at 9-0-1 in the Delta Valley Conference, and completed its fourth unbeaten season under coach Robert Smith’s longtime guidance.

In the finale, A.J. Schiesari provided both goals. The first tally came off a strong cross by Kate Bosco that Schiesari punched in just inside the near post.

The insurance goal hit net midway through the second half when Schiesari knocked in a half volley shot off a well-taken corner kick by Maggie Whittemore.

The Devils dominated play throughout the match, out-shooting the Herd, 21-3.

Davis’ defense, led by Jordan Callahan, Jodie Stroeve, Sami Esquivias, Kylie Thompson and Megan Klisiewicz, made certain Elk Grove did not test keeper Alex Diaz, who played in place of injured Kristen Chastain.

Highlights of the locals’ remarkable season included a championship in the varsity division of the Woodland Calspring Classic and a goal differential of 123 (131 goals scored with just eight allowed).

The 131 Blue Devil goals scored broke the old JV record of 116. Goals in a game (17) and points in a game (40) also were new standards.

Of DHS’ 20 wins, 18 were shutouts.

Tiffany Miras led the Devils in scoring with 22 net-benders and 16 assists (60 points) on the season.

Winning their third straight game, the Blue Devils took care of St. Francis on April 29 in a 13-6 decision.

Audrey Zenner opened the game with nifty, driving score before the Troubadours evened the contest at 1-1.

But, when Isabella Babich responded moments later, DHS was ahead for good.

Babich scored five times to lead the locals, Tess McDaniel added a hat trick and Hanah Wyman found the net twice. Izzy Fanucchi also scored and Jeannie Kim added a couple of assists.

Another highlight was defender Sophia Sangervasi’s first goal of 2014.

Rebeccah Kang was a defensive standout for the Devils, who finished 6-7.

Outscoring their three opponents 46-4, the Blue Devils (17-7) ran their record to 12-1 in Delta Valley Conference play.

In a 15-2 mercy-rule outing, Laguna Creek coughed up back-to-back, six-run innings.

DHS hitters Hunter Jury and Solomon Biers-Ariel each knocked in three runs, while Gabe Gutierrez and Tyler Gibson contributed two hits apiece.

Peter Frame was brilliant for the Devils, going four innings, allowing four hits and no walks while striking out two.

In a 7-2 win at Monterey Trail on Thursday, Ray Young and Jacob Avila (three innings each) joined with first-time pitcher Alex Timmons to hold the Mustangs to two hits while fanning six.

Jake Guerrero (2-for-3), James Richardson (2-for-2) and Gibson (a triple and three walks) paced an offense that had Davis up 6-0 after its first two innings.

In Friday’s complete destruction of visiting Monterey Trail, the Blue Devils rolled to a shortened-game 24-0 victory.

A seven-run second was followed by a 12-run third inning as DHS banged out 17 hits in all — a season high.

Biers-Ariel was lights-out on the mound. His complete game consisted of four innings pitched, one hit given up and no walks to go with six strikeouts.

For good measure, Biers-Ariel went 2-for-3, scored three times and drove in two.

But it was Gibson who created a fire storm in the batter’s box. The shortstop went 5-for-5, drove in four and scored twice. Frame, Gutierrez and Timmons each had a pair of hits, while Guerrero scored four times.

In the three wins, several Devils raised their averages into rarefied regions: Gibson leads all DHS hitters at .475, Frame is at .435, Avila is at .392 and Jury, Biers-Ariel, Guerrero, Gutierrez and Richardson are all above .300.

Davis is hitting .337 as a team.
