JV/frosh roundup: Rare loss inspires DHS JV girls to demolish Grant

After the Davis High junior varsity girls soccer team suffered its first loss of the season last Wednesday at Franklin, the Blue Devils (16-1-1) took out their frustration on Monday at Grant, pounding the Pacers, 11-0.

The local scoring started early — when right wing Elsa Iverson found the left side of the net off a pass from Alex Diaz — and continued steadily throughout the contest. Mackenzie Quick’s through ball set up an Emily Torbert goal, then Kate Bosco’s cross was touched in by Bhavna Kodira to make it 3-0 midway through the first half.

Before intermission DHS got goals from Makenna Rubinstein (from Kodira), Bosco (off a Rubinstein cross and a pass from Brooke Rosenblum) and Hannah Thompson (with an assist from Jodie Strove).

With the game in hand, the Devils defenders moved up to attacking positions in the second half, and Melissa Teuber’s shot was deflected by the keeper to Quick, who finished with a blast from 12 yards. Annie Leck then found Teuber in the middle for a low and hard shot past the keeper, Rubinstein collected her second goal of the match and Mari O’Brien moved up from keeper to forward to send a perfect cross that was finished by Claire Buhlman.

In Davis’ loss to visiting Franklin last week, the Wildcats controlled play through most of the half. Despite several brilliant saves from O’Brien, FHS slipped in the only goal of the game halfway through the opening period.

As that first half wore on, the Blue Devils created several opportunities, including an impressive move by Rubinstein, but they couldn’t finish. Playing with even more energy and focus after the break, DHS had more good chances — corners from Leck and Teuber nearly resulted in goals and shots by Buhlman, Iverson and Thompson were just off — but to no avail.

A close loss to St. Mary’s on April 16 at Ron & Mary Brown Stadium provided a glimpse that the Blue Devil were on the right track before a dominating 18-1 win over Tamalpais on Friday provided the proof.

Not only was the offense rolling on all cylinders in the blowout victory — nine different players scored and seven had assists — but the DHS defense held the visitors without a goal until just 20 seconds remained.

Jed Arvin got the Devil scoring fest started before Justin Reno fed Tom Thornton, who fired a rocket to the upper right corner of the goal. Later, Connor Amesbury grabbed the first of his two interceptions and assisted Isaiah West for another tally.

As the first period wound down, Davis’ Hunter Harris showed off his longpole skills with an exceptional clear, and West set up Arvin for a goal that made it 4-0.

It was more of the same in the second quarter with West scoring three more goals. Blue Devil defense was provided by Jackson Herget (team-high six ground balls) and Riley Swift (three grounders), among others, and before the half was done, Herget Matthew Scheiber, Griffin McNamara and Jake Guida had found the net. Nice passing from Jacob Comingore helped fuel the attack, and DHS was ahead 12-0 at intermission.

In the second half, the goals kept coming (Arvin, Scheiber, McNamara, Reno, Amesbury and West each scored) as passing from Josh Rix was key. Meanwhile, the Devil defense was masterful in holding the big lead as Reno finished with five ground balls, while Sachin Kumar, Arvin and Harris picked up four apiece. When Tamalpais did reach the goal, Connor Spann made four saves.

The Davis defense was similarly strong in the 6-4 loss to St. Mary’s, allowing just one goal in the opening period.

West quickly tied the score, just one minute into the second period, and a man-up situation led to an Arvin-to-West tally as the Blue Devils took a 2-1 lead.

The goals continued in back-and-forth fashion as the Rams knotted things at 2-2, McNamara scored and the Rams tied it again at 3-3 to finish the third quarter. Energetic defense from Jake Griffiths, among others, kept the Devils close before three straight goals put St. Mary’s in control.

Down 6-3, the DHS athletes turned up their play as McNamara made a diving stop to prevent a turnover and goalie Spann (eight saves and six ground balls) — along with entire local defense — became a wall. Guida closed the gap to 6-4 on a nifty bounce shot but that was all the Blue Devils could muster.

Keerut Dhesi (46) and Dylan Lee (49) had impressive outings last Wednesday at the Cypress Lakes Golf Course, but heavy winds hurt the Blue Devils in a 246-262 loss to Will C. Wood.

Other strong individual efforts came from DHS’ Ryan Gloudenman (50), Ashish Patel (57), Tyler McGlone (59) and Caban Moore (59).
