JV/frosh roundup: DHS golfers show off depth against Yuba City

With a deep 12-player roster that includes several golfers who will challenge for spots in varsity tournaments as the campaign progresses, it cames as no surprise that the Davis High junior varsity golf team dominated Yuba City in last Tuesday’s season-opening event.

“The JV squad … is the largest and most talented in years,” said Blue Devil coach Darrin Salk, who will be assisted this season by Julian Espino and Brent Watney, father of PGA Tour pro Nick Watney, a former DHS standout.

“(On Tuesday), everyone on the team had an opportunity to test themselves (at) Wildhorse GC under windy, difficult conditions. The results were outstanding.”

Playing a nine-hole match on their home course, each of the Devils’ top six scorers — Keerut Dhesi (40), Quinn Foster (44), Utkarsh Uppal (44), Ryan Gloudenman (46), Garret Scott-Henley (46) and Clayton Webster (47) — finished ahead of their Honker opponents.

Not far behind for DHS were Dylan Lee (49), Aaron Levin-Fay (54), Ashish Patel (54), Caban Moore (54), Chris Gardias (55) and Tyler McGlone (59).

It was a huge week for the Blue Devils as they followed up an 8-0 drubbing of Terra Linda on the road last Tuesday with a solid 3-1 win over Will C. Wood in Thursday’s home opener.

Against the Trojans, it was all DHS all the time as the locals finished with a 30-0 advantage in shots.

Devil striker Elsa Iverson was the first to connect as she took a through ball from Marin Garcia and made it 1-0. Central defender Claire Buhlman later found Makenna Rubinstein on the left wing before back-to-back corner kicks from Melissa Teuber and Emily Torbert were successful and Davis had a 4-0 hafltime lead.

After the break, Blue Devils Hannah Thompson and Katie Grahn each found the net before DHS midfielder Alexis Olmedo delivered the final two goals, the second off a keeper deflection of a rocket shot from Hannah Deknikker. Meanwhile, defensive midfielder Annie Leck and back line players Kasey Carslon, Jordan Callahan, Jodie Stroeve, Megan Klisiewicz, Teuber and Buhlman combined to shut down the Trojan attack all game long.

On Thursday, the Devils struggled early to find their rhythm, but took charge midway through the first half when Teuber delivered an excellent corner kick that Kate Bosco knocked in from close range.

Davis didn’t score its second goal until after intermission, when Bosco’s hard shot from the right wing deflected off the Wildcat keeper to an open Emma Kaplan for the finish. Wood made it interesting with a header goal before the Blue Devils iced the game when Grahn set up Annie Leck, who made it 3-1.

For the locals, Stroeve played a stellar game on defense.

The Blue Devils opened the season with a close match against Miramonte on Friday, but eventually fell 3-2.

DHS got started with a bang as freshman midfielder Tom Thornton scored a pair of first-period goals, off  assists from attackmen Jed Arvin and Isaiah West.

From there the Davis offense sputters but the defense — paced by Jake Griffiths (five groundballs, two takeways), Hunter Harris (four and two), Jake Guida and Griffin McNamara — did nearly enough to win. The Matadors, however, managed one goal in each of the last three quarters, despite a strong performance from Devil goalie Connor Spann (three takeaways and two saves).
