Outscoring its last four opponents 46-0, the Davis High junior varsity girls soccer team ran its record to 19-0-3 — and meets Elk Grove at DHS Wednesday (5 p.m.), hoping to close out 2014 unbeaten.

A recent 7-0 road victory over Monterey Trail saw A.J. Schiesari have a strong game, unleashing 10 shots and connecting on two.

Mackenzie Quick, after an assist, scored a goal of her own after collecting a loose ball off a corner kick from Maggie Whittemore. Whittemore completed the first-half scoring with a tap-in goal following Tiffany Miras’ corner.

Kate Bosco scored and Jordan Callahan moved up to striker from her central defender position and quickly notched her first two goals of the season.

In a 17-0 beatdown of Grant, 14 different Blue Devils contributed scores. Miras had a hat trick, while Quick, Whittemore, Sami Esqivias, Alex Olmedo, Kylie Thompson, Kristen Chastain, Sophie Sears, Morgan Metler, Schiesari, Alex Diaz, Bhavna Kodira and Meagan Kliseiwicz scored solo goals. Tessa Malone registered two net-benders.

DHS then took 40 shots in a 13-0 shutdown of Laguna Creek.

Quick, Bosco, Olmedo and Miras each scored twice with Iverson, Schiesari, Thompson, Whittemore and Metler also getting goals.

Sears and Hannah DeKnikker provided handsome assists, as did Miras on a corner kick.

In a nonleague outing, the Devils topped visiting Dixon, 9-0 — thanks in part to a three-goal performance by Kodira.

Davis’ leading scorer Miras added two others while Whittemore, DeKnikker, Iverson and Diaz also found the scorebook.

Bhavna, Esquivias, Miras and Schiesari contributed slick assists.

The Blue Devils posted a pair of recent blowout wins, beating Bella Vista (11-3) and Redwood (12-3).

Avenging a last-minute loss from earlier in the season, DHS (5-7) defeated the Broncos while never trailing.

Tess McDaniel found net twice for the Devils, and Hanah Wyman, Isabel Realyvasquez, Kailey Smith, Chloe Nicolet and Marissa Wong completed the locals’ first-half scoring.

With goalie Taryn Spore racking up eight saves, Davis led 8-2 at the break.

Chiara Armstrong then added her first goal of 2014 before Isabella Babich had two late tallies (the second goal off a McDaniel assist). Sophia Hahn recorded five saves between the Blue Devil pipes.

“We played a complete game and never let our momentum slip,” said DHS coach Lisa Branch. “We controlled the draw and ground balls. Izzy Fanucchi and Sophie Sangervasi were really good.”

At Redwood High last Wednesday, Babich scored four times.

Realyvasquez’s goal tied the game at 3-3 before McDaniel scored the first of her three rockets to help the Devils pull away.

Fanucchi and Wyman put Davis up 6-3 at the half.

Jeannie Kim and Armstrong added solo goals for the locals, while Spore pitched a second-half shutout in goal.

Great pitching performances from Noah Riffle and Tyler Gibson — combined with live bats — meant three more Delta Valley Conference wins for the Blue Devils.

In a 7-0 whitewash of Grant on April 22, Riffle pitched a complete-game, one-hitter. He struck out 11, didn’t walk a batter and hit one Pacer.

Catcher Hunter Jury and shortstop Gibson each tripled, with Jury driving in two runs, Gibson one.

Solomon Biers-Ariel went 2-for-4, coming home twice. Gibson also scored a pair of runs.

On Thursday, in winning 14-2, DHS had a season-high 15 hits — including seven straight by Biers-Ariel, Jacob Avila, Gibson, Gabe Gutierrez, Jury, Peter Frame and James Richardson to open the game.

In that first inning, the Devils (14-7, 9-1 in DVC) settled things with a seven-run outburst against Grant.

Richardson blasted his second homer of the season and scored three times while going 2-for-2.

Frame, Avila and Gibson each drove in three runs. Avila is now hitting a team-leading .450.

On this day, all starting pitcher Ray Young needed was that first inning. Young went three innings, striking out four. Jake Guerrero threw the final two, scoreless frames of the mercy-rule-shortened victory.

Saturday against Laguna Creek, Gibson allowed but two hits and two runs in six innings of mound work as Davis won, 4-2.

A three-run second frame put the Blue Devils over the top as Gibson settled in after allowing two first-inning Cardinal tallies.

Daniel Henrickson pitched a quick seventh with two strikeouts to pick up the save.

Biers-Ariel had two hits and the other two DHS singles came from Frame and Jury.
