JV/frosh roundup: Blue Devils squads have successful week

From page B2 | March 11, 2014 |

The Davis High junior varsity boys lacrosse squad came out strong last week against Berkeley and never let up, winning 15-2.

“From our starting line to everyone on the team, I saw 100 percent effort,” said Blue Devil coach Lorne Silverstein. “We dedicated this game to Ann Murray Paige. The players took control of the field for this victory.”

Sean Gellen started the onslaught with a top-shelf goal, which was followed quickly by a Justin Reno score.

The first half ended with DHS ahead 8-2, as Gellen, Reno, Aidan Mager and Austin Griffiths all found the net twice.

To keep the ball in the offensive end, Devils used a strong defense led by Paul Buhlman (three first-half steals) and goalie Miles Herget, who rejected two Yellowjacket shots before intermission.

Gellen again led the second-half scoring as he had two third-period tallies.

More solid defense led to two more goals with Griffiths finding the net after a steal by Matt Scheiber, then Buhlman’s swift ground ball setting up Scheiber’s goal.

Buhlman had three more takeaways after the break with Enya Fujishima and Alex Levine also contributing defensively.

Reno found the net two more times and Mager dodged past a trio of Berkeley defenders to complete his hat trick.

Gellen won 7-of-9 face-offs for Davis while Garrison Koeberer was 5-of-10.

DHS JV baseball

The Blue Devils opened their season last week with a pair of nonconference losses.

In its Wednesday opener, DHS dropped a 4-2 decision to Vacaville, but the outing gave coach Bob Creely a lot to look at …

Alex Timmons opened the game with rip up the middle, but the locals were blanked in the inning.

The Bulldogs went on the board first in the bottom of the third, when their No. 9 batter blasted a triple and later scored on a sacrifice fly.

The Devils tied the score in the top of the fourth when Daniel Henrickson led off with a liner to left, advanced to third on Solomon Biers-Ariel’s second productive bunt of the game, and came home when Pierce Tujo grounded to first.

Vacaville scored twice in the bottom of the frame before the squads tallied once each in the fifth: Davis’ run coming when James Richardson led off with a double, then scored on Timmons’ second hit of the game.

After starter Peter Frame and reliever Ray Young did their jobs, Gabe Gutierrez closed for the Blue Devils, giving up no runs.

On Saturday, the locals lost a 6-2 nod to visiting Yuba City.

Four DHS pitchers were solid as Henrickson, Tyler Gibson, Tujo and Gutierrez combined to give up eight hits and strike out five.

Offensively for the Devils, Richardson opened the game with a deep double to left-center, but nothing followed.

In the second inning, Davis tied the score 2-2 when Noah Riffle’s single scored Hunter Jury and Henrickson (after each moved up on a Frame sacrifice).

The Honkers pulled away from there.

The 2014 edition of the Blue Devils (6-0-1) might eventually be remembered as the “cardiac kids.”

For the second time in less than a week, DHS scored a last-minute goal to secure a comeback victory — this one a 2-1 triumph at Woodcreek.

Settling for a scoreless tie at halftime, the Devils continued to control the match after the break, but suddenly found themselves down 1-0.

Davis then stepped up the pressure, eventually breaking through when Hannah DeKnikker worked free on the left wing and delivered a cross that Tiffany Miras touched on to Kate Bosco, who closed hard from the right and scored.

With the game in the balance, Alex Diaz entered the game as center forward and Miras moved back to center midfield. The combination paid big dividends as Miras broke open in the midfield and fired a shot that the keeper deflected to Diaz, who calmly headed in the game-winner.

Blue Devil defender Kylie Thompson and midfielder Sophia Sears had strong games to contribute to the victory.

Earlier in the week, DHS downed Del Campo, 2-0, in its home opener at Yudin Field.

The Devils struggled to find their rhythm in a fairly even first half, but did take a 1-0 lead when Miras crossed to an open DeKnikker for a low shot just than went just inside the post.

The second half was all Davis as the locals turned up the intensity and consistently pressured the Cougar goal with several quality scoring opportunities.

However, only a shot by Diaz — set up by a through-ball from Elsa Iverson — found the back of the net.

“Maggie Whittemore’s tireless play at the right midfield position was instrumental in energizing the Devil’s second-half attack,” said DHS coach Robert Smith.
