DHS boys water polo wins 7-3

SACRAMENTO Ñ With a balanced scoring attack, Davis HighÕs boys water polo crew warmed up for next weekÕs Sac-Joaquin Section playoffs with a 7-3 victory over Rio Americano on Thursday.

The Blue Devils jumped on top early, using terrific defense to take leads of 3-0 (after one period), 5-0 (at halftime) and 7-1 at the end of three quarters.

Mark WardÕs two goals led the way for the locals as Scott Perry, Connor Stapleton, Tre Moynihan, Wade Allen and Paul Dailey each found the back of the net.

ÒNick Abplanalp had an excellent game in the goal while Paul Dailey did a fine job of neutralizing Rio Americano’s center, John Neuman.,Ó longtime DHS coach Tracy Stapleton said afterwards. ÒOverall, we played excellent defense, as shown by the fact that we gave up only one goal in three quarters. At times, we did not finish our opportunities as well as we would like, but we will work on that over the next week.

ÒI did like the fact that we had six different players score. That shows good balance.Ó

The win over the Raiders was nonleague.

Playoffs begin Nov. 5 at Johansen (Modesto). DavisÕ record is 16-11.

The Blue Devils know a little something about the section tournament. The school has won 13 water polo titles and been runner-up five other years Ñ including 2009 when it dropped a heartbreaking 12-10 championship-game nod to St. MaryÕs (Stockton).
