JV/frosh roundup: Devil JV girls win Woodland varsity soccer tourney again

From page B2 | March 04, 2014 |

The Davis High girls junior varsity soccer team opened the 2014 season by capturing the championship in the varsity division of the Woodland Cal Spring Classic Soccer Tournament for the sixth time in seven years.

The Blue Devil win over Colfax in the championship match was a classic nail-biter, eventually taken by the locals, 4-3, in a shootout after double overtime.

DHS opened the scoring in the first few minutes when Jodie Stroeve’s corner kick bounced in the box to Kate Bosco, whose shot was then deflected to Tiffany Miras for the finish.

Colfax tied the score late in the first half after a series of missed clearances by the Devil defense led to a close-range shot past keeper Kristen Chastain.  The Falcons went up 2-1 midway through the second half when they were awarded a controversial free kick at the top of the 18, and the penalty kick cleared the Davis wall and skipped off Chastain’s fingertips into the top of the goal.

The locals battled back to create two near-hit opportunities by Miras and Tessa Malone, but had to wait until the final minute — when Malone broke free on the left side and crossed on the ground to an open Elsa Iverson — for the equalizer.

After two scoreless overtime periods, Colfax converted its first two PKs, which were matched by tries from Blue Devils Hannah DeKinniker and Alexis Olmedo.

The third Falcon try was saved by DHS goalkeeper Alex Diaz, then Miras tallied to put the Devils up, 3-2. The teams traded misses, Colfax found the net to tie things up, but Stroeve calmly stepped up and blasted a shot into the left corner of the goal to give Davis the victory.

The Blue Devils advanced to that championship contest by winning their bracket with a 0-0 tie against Placer, followed by victories over Pioneer (3-0) and Vanden (2-0).

In the Placer game, DHS narrowly missed the win with two shots off the woodwork and Chastain preserved the tie with a critical save of a Placer free kick.

Miras took control of the Devil attack in the Pioneer game, scoring a hat trick and having a fourth goal called back on an offside call.

In the Vanden win, Davis opened the scoring when Bosco delivered a centering pass to an open Olmedo, who finished low and hard past the keeper.

Stoeve sealed the victory with a perfect corner kick that curled just inside the back post for an unassisted tally. A nice goal lofted over the keeper by local Bhavna Kodira was called back when the referee failed to call advantage DHS on a penalty.

The Blue Devil defense — thanks to strong work by Stroeve, Jordan Callahan, Willa Moffat, Sami Esquivias, Megan Klisiewzc, Kylie Thompson, Marin Garcia and Morgan Metler — allowed only one regulation goal during the tournament.

DHS JV swimming

Sean Kos won three JV events at last weekend’s Jesuit Invitational as the Blue Devil boys took fourth place among nine squads.

Meanwhile, Annie Brennan won one JV race and finished third in two others as the DHS girls finished third out of eight teams.

Kos went 2:04.35 to win the 200 individual medley then swam the 200 freestyle in 1:51.91. His snappy 59.64 took first in the 100 backstroke, completing his triple-crown performance.

Brennan’s 1:14.43 captured the 100 breaststroke. Her 58.62 was good for third in the 100 free and her time of 5:40.80 got Brennan the same placing in the 500 free.

Devil Ben Culberson swam 5:08.76 to finish second in the 500 free, Claire McElhern (1:04.57) was third in the girls 100 butterfly and Isabelle Bishop (1:05.20) was third in the 100 back.

The Davis girls touched third in both the 200 free and 200 medley relays.

Granite Bay (471) won the boys JV division, followed by Bellarmine (384), Jesuit (371) and the Blue Devils (258).

The DHS girls’ 263 points were behind only winner St. Francis (560) and Granite Bay (451).
