JV/frosh roundup: DHS junior varsity court teams share 36 wins

From page B2 | February 12, 2013 |

Finishing with a split of its final two games, the Davis High girls junior varsity basketball team completed its Delta Valley Conference slate with a solid 7-3 league mark, and finished 17-9 overall.

Last Tuesday, the Lady Blue Devils traveled to Monterey Trail to try to avenge an earlier conference loss to the Mustangs, but couldn’t quite get over the hump in a 45-38 decision.

Things started well for DHS as a 23-19 halftime lead was thanks in large part to 10 first-half points from guard Kelly Goedde-Matthews.

But the Devils came out very sluggish after the break and were outscored 18-1 in third stanza. With the run, Monterey Trail took a commanding 13-point lead heading into the fourth.

However, a late surge by DHS made the game close, with forward Sophie Seng (10 points and season-high 14 rebounds) and center Essence Moore (eight points and nine rebounds) continually outmuscling the Mustangs on the interior. But time ran out on the locals.

Davis bounced back to finish strong in what turned out to be an exciting season finale on Friday at The Cage, stopping previously unbeaten Franklin, 46-45, in overtime.

The Blue Devils hung tough against the Wildcats in the first half, trailing just 21-16 at the break. Seng helped keep the game close, draining two 3-pointers in the second quarter and finishing with 10 points at the half.

But the third quarter was the turning point, with DHS turning up the defensive intensity, pressuring Franklin into numerous turnovers and roaring out to a five-point advantage entering the final period. Reserve guard Jamie Bautista was a sparkplug in the third, scoring all seven of her points in that stanza.

The Wildcats then reciprocated the pressure in the fourth quarter, employing a full-court pressure on the Devils. But with the game tied at 34-34 and just over one minute left on the clock, Seng stole an entry pass and went the length of the court for a three-point play.

Guard Alaina King (four points, five steals) followed by stealing another pass, and her converted layup put DHS up by five with just under a minute to go.

Franklin managed to tie the game late and force overtime but, spurred on by a packed gym and the vocal support from the Devil varsity squad, Davis came out quickly in the extra period. Seng, who finished with a season-high 20 points, and Moore (six points and 10 rebounds) got two quick hoops to give the locals a lead, and a late free-throw by Goedde-Matthews proved to be the difference.

The Blue Devils went 1-1 last week to finish the season at 19-6 overall and take second place in the DVC with an 8-2 conference record.

At home Wednesday, DHS took a 36-19 lead over Monterey Trail at intermission and never looked back, eventually schooling the Mustangs, 60-30.

Drew Gnos paced the locals, nailing 6-of-8 from 3-point range for his 18 points, while Ryan Kreidler added 15 points and eight rebounds. Nate Curtis posted 10 points for the Devils, Carl Burton-Hill had seven points and six boards, Jerid Roberson nabbed nine rebounds and Kevin Austin dished seven assists.

Other Davis contributions came from Glen Welch (eight boards, five points), Andrew Bolich (four rebounds and a trey), Liam Neville (three assists, two boards) and Dylan Klein (two steals).

In a Friday season finale which served as a de facto DVC title game, the Blue Devils couldn’t contain a physical Franklin squad, which had lost only two games all season (one to DHS in January).

After falling behind 42-25 by halftime, the locals’ second-half comeback attempt wasn’t enough and the Wildcats prevailed, 76-65.

Gnos again led Davis with 21 points, this time going 5-for-7 from behind the arc, and Curtis added 19 points and four assists. Bailey Yarrow had five points for the Devils.
