The Davis High junior varsity field hockey team couldn’t have picked a better setting to complete a dreamlike, undefeated season on Monday, as the Blue Devils defeated Lassen, 7-0, in picturesque Susanville.

DHS (16-0-1) took control early, when sophomore forward Sarina Buchanan scored the first goal two minutes into the contest, off an assist from freshman Sophia Sears. Midfielder Cara Satre knocked in another goal off a rebound from the Lassen goalie just minutes later and, when tallies by Buchanan and sophomore Abby Meyer made it 4-0, still less than 15 minutes had gone by.

Freshman Arzoo Mandahar scored goals on each side of halftime, the second off an assist from Audrey Zenner, before the Devils completed their game and season scoring with a beautiful goal. Late in the second half, freshman midfielder Nicole Pugh sent a perfect cross from the right into the circle to waiting sophomore Hailey Looney, who blasted a sharp shot into the left side of the cage for her first goal of the season.

As has been the case the entire season, the Davis back line — made up of sophomore Liz Kim and freshmen Juliet Sanders and Willa Moffet — was brilliant. On Monday, the local defense never allowed a shot to reach keeper Danielle Mentink.

Despite playing the campaign with a young squad that featured 18 freshmen, the Blue Devils outscored their opponents, 70-3.

The Blue Devils rolled through tournaments each of the past two weekends, winning all eight of their games at the two events.

After strong defense led DHS to a five-game sweep at Western States, last weekend saw the Blue Devils capture three victories at the Davis Fall Classic.

Playing at home, the Devils got off to a quick start, shutting out Rio Americano, 17-0, behind hat tricks from Annie Fullerton, Alyssa Lengtat and Tori Van Court. Kyla Leacox and Madelyn Reeves added two goals each and single tallies came from Angelica Tujo, Alena Alaverez, Moria Williams and Hailey Cavanaugh.

Davis followed that with a great defensive performances in an 11-1 win over Bella Vista and a 9-3 victory over Miramonte. Alaverez picked up four steals in the win over the Broncos, while goalie Katrina Strum notched 11 saves against the Matadors.

Blue Devil offense in the two games featured goals from Megan Fleming and Claire Mullen, among others.

At Western States, a stifling DHS defense that allowed less than two goals per game was paced by Strum (42 total saves) and Williams (10 steals).

Meanwhile, Day 1 wins over Buchanan (14-2) and Beyer (15-1) included goals from 12 different Devils, including Fleming (five) and Reeves (four). Key scoring also came from Karenna Hunt, Casey Li and Karla Estrada.

The next day, Davis defeated Pitman (8-1) and Tamalpais (15-1), then crushed Campolindo, 10-1, in the championship contest. In that title game, Reeves scored three times and Strum had 11 saves.

The Blue Devils won two games last weekend in San Jose to finish seventh at the NorCal Frosh/Soph championships.

Freshman Steven Csaposs and sophomore Henry Burke each scored twice in the opener to lead DHS past Sacred Heart, 6-2. George Van Vorhis and Peter Blumberg added single goals in the victory.

Following a 7-2 loss to St. Francis, the Devils got a hat trick from Alex Preisler but it wasn’t enough as they fell, 7-5, to Clovis.

A matchup with rival Jesuit was just what Davis needed in the finale as the locals earned an exciting 5-4 overtime win. Jack Liu, Blumberg, Burke and Preisler each scored against the Marauders, with Csaposs adding the winning goal in OT.

Throughout the tournament, the Blue Devils got great goalkeeping from Garrett Dawson and Lucas Brown.

After continuing to dominate league play with two impressive victories, the Blue Devils finished the week with a frustrating tie against rival Jesuit.

DHS scored early and often to beat Elk Grove, 8-0, as Dan Shuman and Sammy Walker eluded the defense for goals before Francis Avoce bended in a free kick to give the Devils a quick 3-0 advantage. Two goals from Matt Cheung and single tallies by Luis Coronado, Ben Tang and Chris Marelich completed the scoring.

Davis then got tougher competition from Franklin in 2-0 victory that was highlighted by strong performances from keepers Matt Hill and Conner Judd and the backline of Buddhika Ratnasiri, Matt Rowen, Thomas Lloyd, and Alex Dhond.

Cheung tallied off a Jay Kraft cross and Matteo Sorrentino added a penalty-kick goal for the local scoring, while Kyle Cuvelier, Michael Vernau and Ethan Hessl shined in midfield.

The Blue Devils then played well early against Jesuit, even taking the lead when Shuman hit a low, hard shot, but defensive lapses in the second-half led to two Marauder goals. Still, DHS managed the 2-2 tie on a Cheung header off a Sebastian Gonzales corner kick.

A small squad of Blue Devil runners competed at the Bella Vista Bronco Invitational on Saturday, but the day still featured several outstanding individual efforts.

Top 20 finishes by Jackson Laird (12th), Fox Conner (14th), and Aaron Bushnell (17th) led the DHS freshman boys, while Andrew Amen paced the sophomore boys when he crossed in 32nd place.

Tyler Powell took 28th to lead the Devil JV boys, Emily Lufburrow finished ninth to pace the JV girls and the local frosh/soph girls used three finishers in the top seven — Adria Lammers (fifth), Elise Chu (sixth) and Hallie Lassiter (seventh) — to take second in the team standings.
