EL DORADO — A huge first quarter was all the Davis High boys basketball team needed to take control of their Oak Ridge Tournament opener on Thursday.

After building a 20-point lead in that first period, the Blue Devils held on to defeat El Dorado, 78-57, and set up a showdown with powerful Folsom on Friday at 8 p.m.

Brett Bloomfield and Ben Crook, a pair of senior guards, paced DHS (9-3) in all areas of the game, including energy in the early going as the Devils went up 29-9 in the opening stanza.

“It was a really big quarter, it was (The System) … when everything is clicking,” Davis coach Dan Gonzalez said after his team hit five 3-pointers in the first period. “We came out with good energy and it was a really good way to start the tournament.”

Bloomfield led the locals with 13 points, nailing two of his squad’s 14 treys on the night and adding five steals and three assists.

“Brett played a great all-around game, he was all over the place defensively,” Gonzalez said. “He carried us.”

With Bloomfield and Crook (12 points and four steals) playing alternating shifts for DHS, which puts in five new players about every two minutes, the Devils always had energy on the floor.

Brandon Strong, another senior, made three shots from beyond the arc to total 10 points while pulling down six rebounds. Matt Michael added eight points and seven boards, tying Logan Davis for the team lead in rebounding.

Austin Lamply (seven points), Ben Prussel (six), Glen Welch (five), Ryan Kreidler (five), Cliff Tsai (four), Riley Kent (three), Ted Riffle (three) and Davis (3) completed the local scoring. Aaron Line led the Cougars (5-6) with 25 points.

Davis now faces a tough test from Folsom, a team Gonzalez said “looks awfully good and is clearly bigger than us.”
