JV/frosh roundup: DHS JV boys and girls combine to win three of four hoops games

From page B2 | February 11, 2014 |

The Davis High junior varsity boys basketball team split its two games last week, overrunning Elk Grove, but dropping a hard-fought contest to Franklin.

The two decisions gave the Blue Devils a 12-10 record overall, and a 3-4 record in Delta Valley Conference.

The locals had one of their best shooting performances of the season last Wednesday against the Thundering Herd, making 35 percent from beyond the 3-point line and 100 percent from the line.

Tommy McTygue led the DHS charge as he dropped 12 points off of four treys. Kevin Austin added 10 Devil points on 5-of-7 shooting, while teammates Josh Evans and Darshan Adams each hit one 3-pointer and scored seven points apiece.

Will Bodendorfer pulled down a team-leading seven rebounds, while Cole Skaggs grabbed five.

In its second game of the week, Davis saw Franklin jump out to an early lead, then played the rest of the way in hot pursuit of the Wildcats.

McTygue was a big part of that chase, finishing with a team-best 20 points to set his season high. He was followed once again by Austin, who added four steals to his 15 points, while Nate Hassid used a couple of big treys in the fourth quarter to score 11 points.

Bodendorfer was his usual productive self on the backboards, leading the Blue Devils with seven rebounds, and McTygue corralled six.

Trailing by eight points to start the final period, DHS battled back, drawing within one late in the game. But a Franklin 3-pointer on the ensuing possession proved to be the dagger.

The Lady Blue Devils went 2-0 last week, winning 34-31 on the road at Elk Grove on Tuesday, then taking a 25-22 decision at Franklin on Friday.

It wasn’t the most glamorous offensive week for DHS (17-5, 6-1 Delta Valley Conference), but the defense was “awesome,” according to one coach.

At Elk Grove, the Devils trailed 21-12 at the half before a 10-1 third period tied the game at 22-22 entering the final quarter.

Sophomore Faith Harlan had five of her game-high 10 points in the fourth, including a 3-pointer with 90 seconds left that gave Davis a lead it would not relinquish.

Free throws in the final minute by local sophomore Sarah Sherwin (two) and freshman Delaney Davis (one) — who added six rebounds and five steals — sealed the win.

Sophomore Essence Moore scored six points for the Blue Devils.

Offense was again hard to come by on Friday as DHS shot just 16 percent but led 14-10 at halftime, and 18-14 heading into the final eight minutes.

A basket by Kaydee Bodge gave Franklin a 22-20 advantage with three minutes, but Devil freshman Cara Satre answered with a huge 3-pointer off an assist from Sherwin.

Moore added a layup on the next possession, and Davis held the Wildcats scoreless for the final two minutes.

Satre paced the locals with five points and added five rebounds and three steals.

The Lady Blue Devils controlled the boards, finishing with a 48-15 advantage, behind 10 from freshman Abbey Fisk and nine each from Sherwin and Moore, who added five steals.

“We were reminded this week how tough it is to win on the road in this league,” said DHS assistant coach Brett Andersen. “Our defense was able to play a pivotal role in both wins to keep us in the game.

“The growing pains certainly happen on offense at the JV level, but they are something we need to clean up immediately.

“Our girls are working hard to establish their offensive identity after freshman Alyssa Lengtat (the Devils’ leading scorer) was pulled up to varsity.”
