Dodging the raindrops, it was a successful week of junior varsity baseball for Davis High.

In winning two Delta Valley Conference contests, the Blue Devils received terrific pitching from Pierce Tujo in a 5-2 win over Franklin — then got a combined no-hitter from Tyler Gibson, Ray Young and Jake Guerrero in stopping Grant, 15-2.

Thursday’s home game against the Wildcats featured Tujo throwing four three-up, three-down innings and Noah Riffle pitching the seventh for the save.

DHS got on the board first when James Richardson’s single plated Gibson, who had reached on a second-inning error. Another Franklin error on a Tujo tapper allowed Daniel Henrickson to come home in the same frame.

The Devils scored again in the third, thanks to Henrickson’s single driving in Gabe Gutierrez (who had singled).

After retiring nine straight, Tujo allowed a run on two hits in the fourth.

In the fifth inning, FHS got within a run, but Hunter Jury pushed the lead to two when he was hit by a pitch, stole a base and came home on the fourth Wildcats miscue.

Tujo was up to his old tricks in the sixth (three up, three down) before Alex Timmons closed out the local scoring with a walk, a steal of second and a tally off another Franklin error.

Riffle then closed the door.

At Grant on Friday, home runs by Richardson (a three-run blast) and Gutierrez (a two-run shot) anchored a 15-hit attack in the mercy-rule-shortened victory.

Soloman Biers-Ariel, Jacob Avila, Mason Shorts and Gutierrez each collected two hits for Davis.

Meanwhile, Gibson was cruising through his 3 1/3-inning stint without allowing a safety.

With one down in the fourth, Young relieved Gibson and fanned the next two batters, ending the frame.

Young allowed a fifth-inning Pacer run, but Guerrero whiffed the last batter to preserve the no-hitter.

Under a steady downpour — and a canopy of rainbows — the Blue Devils gave Bella Vista all it could handle before falling, 8-7, to the Broncos last week.

After trailing at the half, Bella Vista’s deciding goal came in the final minute.

Down eight players thanks to spring-break vacations, DHS (3-4) still kept pace, actually leading, 5-4, at intermission.

Ella Silverstein scored twice in the first half with single goals from Chloe Nicolet, Isabel Realyvasquez and Tess McDaniel helping provide the advantage.

Devil goalkeeper Kiyo Hahn racked up five early saves and Chiara Armstrong assisted on Nicolet’s score.

As heavy rains impacted visibility — leading to numerous dropped passes and struggles for ground balls — Davis scored two more goals (by Esther Wang and McDaniel).

But BVHS was up to the task, including that dramatic, late game-winner.

The Blue Devils’ game at Grant last Wednesday was halted at halftime due to tornado warnings in the area. However, the tornado actually struck during the first half, as DHS blew away the Pacers, 10-0.

A.J. Schiesari started the Devil goal barrage when she knocked in a rebound of her own header, which came off a corner kick delivered by Tiffany Miras. Hannah DeKnikker followed with the first of her three goals when she picked off a weak clearance and raced in unimpeded for an easy finish.

Bhavna Kodira had two of the next Davis goals, sandwiched around DeKnikker’s second, to make it 5-0.

DeKnikker completed her hat trick thanks to a nice through ball from Tessa Malone, who then scored a goal of her own when a strong shot by Morgan Metler rebounded off the post. Metler then got her first tally of the season by intercepting a weak goal kick and dribbling directly to goal for an easy finish.

With the game well in hand, the Blue Devil back line defenders moved into attacking positions and Sami Esquivias took full advantage of the opportunity, scoring her first two goals of the season, both set up by Miras.
