The Davis High junior varsity boys basketball team improved to 14-5 overall and 3-1 in Delta Valley Conference play with convincing wins over Laguna Creek (71-40) and Monterey Trail (72-57) last week.

At Laguna Creek on Wednesday, the Blue Devils built up a 36-18 halftime advantage and never looked back as Drew Gnos led the winning effort with 19 points, six steals and four assists.

Also for DHS, Carl Burton-Hill (five points) kept control of the boards with 12 rebounds and Glen Welch and Bailey Yarrow each made three 3-pointers on their way to 11-point outings. Other local contributions came from Jerid Roberson (nine boards), Kevin Austin (five points and six assists), Andrew Bolich (five points) and Liam Neville (four rebounds).

On the road again Friday, the Devils and Mustangs played close in the first half before Davis’ hot shooting — 38 percent from behind the arc — broke the game open.

Gnos was the high scorer with 16 points, including four treys, and five assists, while Nate Curtis (five steals) and Ryan Kreidler (seven rebounds) each scored 14 points. Dylan Klein also made a few key plays for the Blue Devils.

The Lady Blue Devils continued their DVC schedule last week by splitting games against Laguna Creek and Monterey Trail.

First, in a 47-33 win over the visiting Cardinals, DHS (13-7, 3-1) came out of the gates cold, managing just five points in the opening quarter.

The Devils righted the ship in the second period, erupting for 20 points behind seven each from guard Kelly Goedde-Matthews and forward Sophie Seng.

Davis continued to build its lead in the third, receiving a boost from backup center Jessica Boyers, who had four points and two assists in the quarter.

In the Lady Blue Devils’ seventh straight win, Goedde-Mathews had her best game of the season with a season-high 13 points to go with five rebounds, five assists and four steals, while Seng poured in 12 points and Faith Harlan came off the bench to score a season-high seven. Essence Moore battled a taller LC frontline, still finishing with six rebounds and four steals, and Alaina King added five rebounds and five steals.

The winning streak finally ended on Friday when Monterey Trail came to town and held off DHS, 42-39.

After a low-scoring first half saw the Devils trailing 16-11, the Mustangs started to get hot from outside to go ahead by as many as 14 points in the third quarter. Davis, however, used a stout final-period defense to get on the comeback trail, allowing just five points in the quarter.

Still, the Blue Devil comeback came up just short.

Moore paced the locals with nine points and nine rebounds, while the bench came up big. Harlan and guard Jamie Bautista each had six points and Boyers scored four.
