The Davis High junior varsity boys basketball team ran into some tough competition at the Trojan Tossup Tournament in Oak Ridge during the holiday break, winning one of three games to finish nonconference play at 11-4.

In Thursday’s tourney opener, the Blue Devils led for three quarters, but let one slip away. In losing 68-62 to the host Trojans, DHS fell to a team it had beaten in its own Les Curry Invitational.

Ryan Kreidler led the Devil effort with 18 points, including four treys, to go with six rebounds, four blocks and four steals. Other Davis contributions came from Carl Burton-Hill (nine points and nine boards), Kevin Austin (eight points, three rebounds and three assists), Jerid Roberson (nine rebounds), Nate Curtis (five points, five assists) and Bailey Yarrow (six points and three assists). In addition, Liam Neville added a trey and three rebounds.

On Friday, the locals lost 68-48 to powerful Ponderosa (14-2). DHS kept it close in the first half, but couldn’t overcome a season-low 24 percent shooting. Burton-Hill paced the Blue Devils with 15 boards, and added 12 points and three steals, while Kreidler had 12 points and six rebounds.

Davis finally got back to its winning ways on Saturday, leading by as many as 20 points in a 76-64 victory over El Dorado.

In the win, the Devils shot 45 percent from the field and had four players score in double digits. They were powered by Glen Welch’s 19 points — including three 3-pointers — five assists and four steals, while Burton-Hill (16 points and 10 rebounds), Curtis (15 points, three steals) and Drew Gnos (13 points, four assists) added scoring punch.

Also for DHS, Dylan Klein grabbed four big rebounds and Andrew Bolich added a key basket, helping the locals win their final contest before Delta Valley Conference play begins this week.

The  Lady Blue Devils captured two more games last week complete their nonleague slate at 10-6.

Traveling to Rocklin on Thursday to play Whitney, DHS survived a cold-shooting fourth quarter to hold off the Wildcats, 38-36.

The Devils jumped out to an early eight-point lead, getting a first-quarter spark from sharpshooter Julia Zabala, who scored five points in her first 30 seconds of playing time.

Davis widened its lead to 11 points heading into the final stanza, before Whitney’s full-court pressure frustrated the Blue Devils into numerous turnovers, cutting into the advantage.

DHS freshman center Essence Moore controlled the paint and ended up with game highs of eight points and 11 rebounds, with teammate Faith Harlan coming off the bench to score seven. In addition, local guard Jamie Bautista grabbed six boards to go along with three points, while Kelly Goedde-Matthews (four assists) and Alaina King had four points apiece.

Then, in a Saturday afternoon affair, the host Devils used their speed and athleticism to tally their highest score of the season in a 66-51 win a Yuba City squad that had a big height advantage.

Still, Davis led by 10 at halftime and then, behind four quick steals and baskets by King, pushed the advantage to 20 early in the third period.

King (who finished with eight steals) and Sophie Seng paced the Blue Devils with 14 points apiece, Moore (seven points, 11 rebounds) again provided the inside presence and the DHS point guard duo of Goedde-Matthews and Sarah Sherwin each chipped in six points.

The Lady Blue Devils, winners of nine of their last 11 games, open Delta Valley Conference play Tuesday at The Cage against Elk Grove.
