JV/FROSH ROUNDUP: Field hockey rolls

September 22, 2010 |

BERKELEY Ñ Two road games, two convincing road victories for coach Lindsay SmithÕs junior varsity field hockey crew.

Last week, Davis traveled to the Bay Area and dispatched Berkeley High, 7-0.

After a slow start, the Devils started putting the ball in the goal. Davis kept the ball on their offensive side of the field most of the game as six players scored in the rout.

Shelby Stahl, Audrey McNamara, Natalie Silver, Hannah Kaplan, Elizabeth Leshuk and Mikaela Zufelt all contributed goals and, according to Smith, McNamara had Òher best performance of the season while playing (well) on both the offensive and defensive ends of the field.Ó

Then last Wednesday, Davis took on Bella Vista.

Wednesday’s game proved to be a tougher match than the previous dayÕs meeting with the Yellow Jackets. Nonetheless, when the grass stopped flying, the Blue Devils were solidly the winners, 3-0.

Davis had a hard time finding the back of the goal in the first half, despite dominating play.

The second half was a different story…

Lucy Hass and Christina Son played well in transition to get the ball into the DevilsÕ offensive circle Ñ allowing Stahl, Kaplan and Sara Pinto to score.

Strong defensive play by Emmanuelle Cordier kept the ball away from the DevilsÕ goal. DHS plays today at home at 3:30 p.m. versus Yuba City. Monday, Davis travels to Lassen and is back home Sept. 29 with Pleasant Valley (3:30 p.m.).

Water polo boys go 1-2

SAN JOSE Ñ Playing the best competition helps a team to grow. ItÕs the creed of Davis High water polo Ñ and when Davis High traveled to the Bellarmine JV Tournament over the weekend, the Blue Devils grew.

Going 1-2 on the day, DHS dropped a 15-3 decision to a very strong Bellarmine team.

Beating Serra (San Mateo) in the second game, the locals were upended in the final against Lafayette, 8-2.

Devil attacker Graham Fullerton scored all three goals for Davis in the Bellarmine match. Against Serra, Fullerton scored six goals, Garrett Fisk three and Alex Borowsky one.

Fisk and Fullerton scored the DHS goals in the final game. Davis ran its record to 2-2 and will next play Sept. 30 when the Devils host St. MaryÕs at Arroyo Pool. The following day, Davis will play in the Jesuit Tournament.

Frosh footballers roll, 30-6

VACAVILLE Ñ There was no chance for Will C. Wood High when it played Davis last Thursday.

The Blue Devil freshmen had two weeks to prepare, they were coming off a thumping of Lodi in the season opener and they just wanted to play some football.

Play they did. Scoring in every quarter, Davis hammered the Wildcats, 30-6, as running back Winfred Roberson was once again unstoppable.

Opening the scoring with a 75-yard Roberson run in the first period, DHS went up 8-0 when QB Brett Bloomfield ran in the conversion.

C.K. Hicks pulled in a 15-yard touchdown pass from Bloomfield just before halftime Ñ and when Roberson bowled in for the extra points, Davis was cruising, 16-0, at the break.

RobersonÕs 27-yard scamper extended DavisÕ third-quarter lead (points-after try failed), and his four-yard run in the final period gave him three TDs on the afternoon. Hicks grabbed the two-point conversion.

A late, one-yard plunge by Wood made for the final score.

Davis now travels to Colfax for a 5:30 p.m. game on Thursday.

JV footballers just miss

VACAVILLE Ñ It wasnÕt what coaches had in mind, especially after the Davis High junior varsity football team felt they had been denied one chance to tie, another to possibly mount a last-gasp victory.

Losing 14-12 on the road to Will C. Wood, the Blue DevilsÕ Kevin Sorensen was stopped short on a two-point conversion with 2:18 remaining in the fourth period. Adam Inouye had just collected a touchdown pass from QB Grant Dickerson and the blue-and-white adrenaline was flowing.

Sorensen hit the left side of the line, battled forward and settled in the end zone.

No call as the players unpiled. Then the officials decided Davis came up short. Still 14-12.

There was time left, however.

A failed onside kick set up the Wildcats just beyond midfield. Trying to run out the clock, and over a minute remaining, it looked like the impossible happened.

The ball was on the turf and Davis surrounded it, apparently recovering a fumble.

Again, the Devils didnÕt get the call. ÒDown before the fumble,Ó came the officialsÕ response. ÒWood ball, second down.Ó

ÒIt was a fumble,Ó assistant coach Logan Kittle promised afterward. ÒWe recovered a fumble.Ó

Now 2-1, the Devils travel to Colfax for a 5:15 p.m. game on Friday.
