Ratnasiri’s early pair sends DHS past The Trail

Davis High’s girls soccer team hopes to take another step forward Thursday evening when it entertains Grant at 7 p.m. at Yudin Field.

The contest is another in a string of important Delta Valley Conference matches that has the Blue Devils chasing front-running Franklin (10-2, 4-0).

On Wednesday, Kalani Ratnasiri took a picture-perfect pass from Clara Goin and one-touched home a goal with less than 90 seconds gone in the contest as DHS went on the road and took a 4-0 win at Monterey Trail.

The Devils are now 10-4-1 overall and 2-1 in DVC play.

In the win over the Mustangs, forward Ratnasiri scored again later in the first period and, when Goin’s tally made it 3-0 before intermission, Davis coach Sara Stone was able to mix and match her Blue Devils at different positions.

“We didn’t have much to do (on defense Wednesday),” Stone explained. “The shutout is always a plus, but right now we’re just trying to get our timing … moving players around to see what works.”

A second-half goal from DHS sophomore Sophia Hernandez completed the scoring as Monterey Trail fell to 4-10-1, 0-3-1.

The Pacers come to town with a 3-7-2 mark and have lost twice and tied once in three league outings.

So, are the Devils back in the DVC title hunt?

“I think so,” Stone said, adding that she’s pleased with her team’s health and conditioning. “As a team, (the league title) is a goal. In that Franklin game (a 1-0 March 26 loss), we were a little off.

“The girls are hungry…”

Notes: Thursday night’s contest marks the first of three consecutive home games for Davis. Elk Grove visits on Monday before the all-important rematch with Franklin on Wednesday. … Stone says junior forward Ju-A Son (concussion) could be cleared to play as early as next week.
