Johnson explodes for six goals as DHS girls advance to semis

LODI — Now in her fourth year on the Davis High girls water polo team, senior Heather Johnson has never finished a season without a Sac-Joaquin Section championship.

And she’s doing everything she can to make sure she never has to …

Johnson scored six times on Monday helping the Blue Devils pull away early and grab a 15-2 win over Downey in the section quarterfinals.

“We were able to make a lot of steals on the perimeter and Heather is just so fast that she is able to get open,” said DHS coach Doug Wright. “We are getting ourselves into good defensive situations, playing really good half-court defense and that limits what the other team can do on offense and leads to steals.”

It wasn’t just Johnson who benefited from the defense turning into offense, as junior Alyssa Alvarez and sophomore Kendall Doten each scored twice. Single tallies came from Colby Stapleton, Emme Van Vorhis, Lauren Owens, Haley Blackwell and Kinsey Van Deynze, another Devil sophomore.

“What’s great is that we have a lot of people scoring,” Wright said. “Kendall is really stepping up; it’s great to get scoring from Alyssa and younger players like Kinsey. We are seeing that next group of players step up.”

Davis’ quest for a fifth straight SJS title continues Wednesday, with an 11 a.m. semifinal matchup against Rocklin at Tokay High (Lodi). The Thunder edged Tokay, 7-6, on Monday. A win Wednesday will put the Blue Devils in the section finals for the 14th straight season.

“Rocklin will give us a challenge, but if we play well — and I think we will — we should be able to pull away from them,” Wright said.
