OK. This junior varsity soccer team knows how to win. And how!

With wins over Laguna Creek (4-0), Monterey Trail (5-0) and arch-rival Jesuit (2-0), Davis HighÕs boys have now outscored opponents 70-16 on the season.

The Oct. 19 win over the Cardinals was comfortably earned on goals by Collin Holtz through an assist by Kian Bagheri; Alexander Nelson, assisted by Antonio Rodriguez; Lee LeVerrier, assisted by Luis Zepeda; and Oscar Alvarado, assisted by Nelson.

Last Thursday, at home against the Mustangs, the Blue DevilsÕ play was yet another testament to a fit and skilled squad.

Possessing the ball nearly 80 percent of the time, about eight minutes in, Holtz flicked back a ball within the 18-yard box, which was received by Brian Birt for a quick goal.

Two minutes later, Holtz passed to Birt, who placed his second goal shoulder high past the keeper.

Davis continued the half with assertive control, but led only 2-0 at intermission.

The second period began with a surprise when coach Alex Park placed Nelson as goalkeeper to allow Matt Linvill, the squadÕs freshman keeper, to play up top in a forward position.

Within 11 minutes from the start of the half, Linvill accomplished his mission and scored his goal, in accordance with the JV long-standing tradition that every player scores, even the keepers.

Shortly after, Alex Raya delivered a measured corner kick to be received by a header from Holtz who planted a laser-sharp ball left of a stunned keeper for DavisÕ fourth

Then Connor Anderson slid onto a ball surgically delivered by Paul Hinton to hit DavisÕ fifth goal.

The following day, the Devils met Jesuit High School.

During the first half, the Blue Devils shared possession with their opponents, but neither team scored.

During the last five minutes of the first half, Davis energized its game, picked up its energy, and began to dominate.

The highly contested and choppy play during the first half took a different turn in the second.

Four minutes from start, Bagheri sent a stinger past the JHS goalie.

Now leading 1-0, Davis dominated the rest of the way.

ÒAlthough we did not do well in the first half, we outplayed Jesuit in the second,Ó Park said. ÒOur team was first to the ball, had better possession and ball handling, and the players were more comfortable with their passing,Ó

The localsÕ second goal came about 10 minutes into the second period, when Holtz finished a ground ball.

The game continued with multiple attacks by the Devils, but to no avail.

A dangerous play came near the 12th minute of the second half when a one-on-one shot was saved by Tyler Darrah, DavisÕ sophomore keeper, who proved critical through his many saves.
