JV boys soccer team still hot

By

NAPA Ñ The Blue Devil junior varsity boysÕ soccer team defeated a pesky Napa High, 2-0, on the road Friday, then stopped Lincoln 6-0 on Monday.

Typical of most Davis teams, the Devils controlled the ball for much of the game at Napa Ñ and by halftime, forward Collin Holtz had scored twice.

HoltzÕs second goal was assisted by Scott Yamamoto, who made a strong run down the pitch.

The Indians were kept off the scoreboard by a strong defensive line of Alex Raya, Lee LeVerrier, Alex Perez and Connor Anderson.

Goalkeeper Tyler Darrah denied NapaÕs several attempts and was exceptional in two noteworthy saves before halftime.

Davis continued to dominate possession going into the second half.

Forward Antonio Rodriguez led a strong drive toward the goal, along with several other breakaway opportunities that came close.

Yet, despite continuous pressure, Davis was unlucky and did not extend its lead after intermission.

During the second half, Alexander Nelson joined the defense that continued to hold Napa scoreless.

Midfielders Kian Bagheri, Jacob Rutheiser, Oscar Alvarado and Brian Birt set the pace and style of play through controlled passing from midfield.

The Blue Devils finished with 17 shots on goal while the defense held Napa to only a handful of chances.

ÒAs we continue to push forward and control the pitch, the teamÕs ability to finish and convert plays into goals will continue to rise,Ó DHS coach Alex Park explained.

Davis next plays today at Dixon (5 p.m.).
