VACAVILLE — For some high school girls basketball teams, opening the season on the road against a Vacaville squad that runs an unusual offensive system might be a challenge. Luckily for the Lady Blue Devils on Monday, the Bulldogs don’t run anything the Devils haven’t seen countless times on their own campus.

Taking advantage of their knowledge of the VHS offense (it’s the same run-and-gun system the DHS boys employ), the Lady Devils ran all over the Bulldogs, 81-64.

While the win was decisive, it won’t count toward Davis’ record as it came in a CIF Foundation Game. The contests are designed by the Sac-Joaquin Section as an effort to raise money for the A. Dale Lacky Scholarship and Women in Sports Conference. The Lady Blue Devils will play their first official game on Thursday, when they host Granite Bay on the first day of their own Dorothy Speck Tournament.

On Monday, junior Caitlin Mazzoleni scored 20 points to pace four DHS players in double figures. She added four steals. Sophomore Rachael Allison poured in 16 points for the Devils, junior Emma Stenz had 12 to go with her team-high 15 rebounds and junior Sarah Bloise put in 10.

Davis sophomore Anna Belenis didn’t need to score to affect the game, as she dished out 11 assists.

“Vacaville plays the same system as the DHS boys, so we just got the ball ahead quickly and got layup after layup,” said Lady Blue Devil coach Karen Foster. “Anna did a really good job getting the ball up the court and Sarah Bloise, Caitlin, Rachael and Emma got most of their points on layups.”

The onslaught began right out of the gates as the locals won the first period, 21-3, then scored the first bucket of the second quarter to take a 20-point lead.

“It was a good all-around game for us,” Foster added. “We moved the ball well and we outrebounded them.”

The Devils got scoring from up and down the lineup as 11th-grader Katie Grahn — who also had four steals — totaled seven points, sophomore Sophie Seng had six and single buckets came from junior Alaina King and senior Ariane Rusanganwa.
