NATOMAS — It was business as usual for the Davis High girls basketball team on Tuesday.

Using their stifling press defense, the Lady Blue Devils rolled to a 61-39 nonleague victory at Inderkum.

“We ran two or three versions of our press,” DHS coach Karen Foster told The Enterprise. “They were scrappy, but we didn’t let them get into their sets.”

Led by double-doubles from Caitlin Mazzoleni and Emma Stenz, the Devils jumped out to a 27-19 halftime lead and cruised from there.

Junior swingman Mazzoleni scored 11 points and pulled down 10 rebounds while post Stenz (also an 11th-grader) had 12 points and 10 rebounds. Another junior, Sarah Bloise, hit the boards hard, pulling down 10 while scoring four points.

In upping its record to 10-4, Davis followed the generalship of sophomore point guard Anna Belenis, who not only dished out seven assists, but drew the praise of Foster:

“She doesn’t shoot a whole lot, but she’s just invaluable.”

Rachael Allison added nine points for the locals, Katie Grahn had seven and La’Rell Cato canned six. Jamie Bautista scored four.

The Tri-County Conference Tigers fell to 6-9.

Next up for the Blue Devils is a Thursday home date with El Camino (5-7). Game time is 7 p.m. in The Cage.

DHS point guard Kelly Goedde-Matthews (neck) was out Tuesday and Foster expects her to miss the El Camino game.

“But we’re hoping she’ll be back for Brookside Christian,” the coach reported. “We’ll need her for that one.”

The Knights are 14-4.

The Lady Devils — league champs a year ago with a 23-5 overall mark — will open Delta Valley Conference play Jan. 17 at home with Elk Grove.
