JV/frosh roundup: DHS JV boys split a week of hoops

From page B2 | January 28, 2014 |

The Davis High junior varsity boys basketball team played well in a pair of road games last week, dropping a close one at Franklin on Wednesday before coming home to put a licking on Laguna Creek on Friday.

The 70-69 loss to the Wildcats and the 72-47 victory over the Cardinals have the Blue Devils (11-7 overall) at 2-1 in Delta Valley Conference play.

With Wednesday’s game being such a hard-fought affair, rebounding proved to be a major factor, with Franklin dominating DHS, 54-33, in that category.

Tommy McTygue led the Devils scoring with 15 points and with his four steals, while Kevin Austin, Nate Hassid and Ben Bergevin all had nine points. Point guard Matt Cheung led the locals with six boards.

Davis opened the game on a roll, quickly taking a 13-1 lead in the opening minutes, but the Wildcats used second-chance opportunities to battle back. The second quarter was all Franklin, as the Blue Devils’ rebounding woes continued.

But, despite entering the fourth period down by 11, DHS clawed back into the game with a strong eight minutes of play and found itself with the ball, down one point with a couple of seconds to go. However, Hassid’s deep 3-point attempt fell just short.

Though the win wasn’t in the cards that night, the Devil found victory against the Cards just two nights later, dominating every aspect of the game.

The outcome was practically determined by the time the first quarter ended, as the locals jumped out to a 21-5 lead. That gap only widened as the game went along, as Davis harassed Laguna Creek with an opportunistic full-court press. Cheung paced the locals with 10 steals, most of which came when the Cardinals were forced into poor passes. Griffin Duisenberg added four steals to the Blue Devil cause.

Meanwhile, DHS was led on the offensive end by freshman center Darshan Adams, utilizing both a deadly mid-range jump shot and his height inside to pour in 14 points. Hassid contributed 12, and three players — McTygue, Cole Skaggs and Jordan Frost — each had eight. Will Bodendorfer was the primary set-up man for many of those points, as he finished with a team-high five assists, while Spencer Ault had sealed the win with two points in the fourth quarter.

DHS JV girls soccer

An informational meeting for ninth- and 10th-grade girls interested in trying out for the Blue Devil junior varsity soccer team, and their parents, is set for Tuesday at 7 p.m. in Room N-8 at DHS.

According to longtime JV coach Robert Smith, the tryout process for ninth- and 10th-graders starts Tuesday, Feb. 4, with check-in and conditioning.

“Players are reminded that all DHS sports-participation forms must be submitted to, and cleared by, the DHS Athletic Department prior to participation in tryouts,” Smith explains.
