DHS boys soccer wins at Elk Grove

By
October 27, 2010 |

With a huge game looming on Thursday and a few players missing due to injury, the Davis High boys soccer team had step up and take care of business on Tuesday at Elk Grove.

Getting stronger as the game went along, the Blue Devils did just that in a 5-0 victory over the Thundering Herd.

The win by DHS means that in ThursdayÕs regular-season finale against Franklin Ñ which has been moved to Playfields Park Ñ the victor will capture the Delta Valley Conference championship, and everything that goes with it.

While the details of this yearÕs section playoffs are still being finalized, it appears that a first-place finish in the DVC will come with several perks. As league champions, the Devils most likely would be in the bottom of the playoff bracket, while powerhouse Jesuit will be on the top.

Davis also would get a first-round bye and play at least one more postseason home game.

ÒWe are sitting on top (of the DVC) but we have to win (Thursday) to stay on top, so it is a critical game for us,Ó Blue Devil head coach Ashley Yudin said. ÒChuy (Herrera) went down with a knee injury (Tuesday) and Alex Vivona missed the game with the flu, but we still played well, so we know we have guys that can step up. But you always like to have a full roster.Ó

This is the third straight season that DHS and Franklin have played for the DVC title in the last game of the season.

Earlier this year, the Blue Devils and Wildcats played to a 1-1 tie. ThursdayÕs game will kick off at 3:30 p.m.

On Tuesday, the Thundering Herd put in an own goal off a Ryan Gross throw-in in the first half to give Davis a 1-0 lead at the break. Then, after Cyrus Ghaffari scored just three minutes into the second period, the Devils were off to the races.

Quinn Kesser had the third DHS goal on a penalty kick, Dylan West made it 4-0 with a shot to the far post and Tom Nolan finished the scoring with a goal in the final minutes.
