JV/frosh roundup: Strong second half lifts JV Devils over Elk Grove

From page B2 | January 21, 2014 |

The Davis High junior varsity basketball team captured its 10th win of the season on Friday, edging out Elk Grove, 57-51, in a nail-biter of a Delta Valley Conference opener.

The game was the Blue Devils’ first in 10 days, so it took a couple of periods for DHS shake the rust off, and it found itself trailing at halftime. But like they did in the previous contest (at Cordova) the locals staged a furious comeback to beat the Thundering Herd.

Devil Kevin Austin led all scorers with 18 points, and also provided an excellent Dikembe Mutombo impression with a ferocious block during the game.

Davis forward Will Bodendorfer contributed a couple of blocks of his own, while also ending up just shy of a double-double with nine points and 10 rebounds. In addition, Jordan Frost chipped in five Blue Devil points, three of which came on a trey that snapped a cold streak for the DHS shooters.

The local defense was stifling in the first quarter, surrendering only five points to The Herd.

After two quarters of offensively focused ball, the defense made a resurgence in the fourth quarter as the Devils turned it on to secure the victory.

Davis plays next at Franklin on Wednesday.

DHS sophomore Sarah Sherwin added eight points in the first DVC game of the year.

The Devils now stand at 12-4 overall going into Tuesday’s night 5:30 p.m. home matchup with Franklin.

Maria Voss led the home-standing Devils with 23 points and nine rebounds against Wood, while Tiffany Miras scored 22 points and Nicole Pugh added 14.

With the two victories, DHS improved to 14-3 heading into Tuesday’s 4 p.m. home game against River City.
