The Hawaii women’s soccer team had to get creative after UC Davis goalie Taylor Jern had two key first-half saves to preserve a scoreless tie at intermission on Thursday at Aggie Stadium.

After the break, the Rainbow Wahine used two goals that came out of scrambles in front of the Aggie cage to beat their hosts, 2-0.

The two tallies came just two minutes apart in an otherwise even matchup. UCD (3-7-3, 0-2-1 Big West Conference) and Hawaii (7-7, 2-3) each took 14 shots, and Aggie Bridget Berman led all players with five, two of which were on goal.

Last time the Blue Devils played Franklin, it was junior D.J. Villegas who had two tallies and assisted on the other to lead DHS to a win.

On Thursday in Elk Grove, with Villegas on the shelf with injuries, the Devils’ other standout scorers — senior Brian Birt and junior Joe Rainer — were up to the task, sending the locals to a 2-0 victory.

Birt set up Rainer with a beautiful pass for the first goal, according to Davis coach Alex Park, then Birt faked out a defender before smashing the ball into the side net to conclude the scoring.

“It was good that Joe and Brian stepped up and scored (Thursday),” Park added.

With the win, the Blue Devils (10-4-3) stayed unbeaten at 5-0-1 in Delta Valley Conference play.

This just wasn’t the Blue Devils’ week.

After dropping its first Delta Valley Conference contest of the season on Tuesday, DHS couldn’t get back on track on Thursday, losing at Elk Grove, 25-18, 25-21, 25-19, to fall to 3-2 in league play.

Coach Julie Crawford said the Devils didn’t play to their potential against the Thundering Herd, as they struggled with serve-receive and couldn’t keep up with EGHS’ fast-paced offense.

The tough situation, however, emphasized everything that junior captain Maya Gilardi brings to the DHS squad.

“Maya showed a lot of leadership and consistency; she was really trying to pull the team together,” Crawford reported. “I can always rely on her to do that and she always plays really hard.”

The coach also praised the performance of junior Rebecca Monachello, who came in and made several key plays for the Blue Devils.

The Blue Devils won every singles match on Thursday on their way to a 6-3 Delta Valley Conference win at Franklin.

No. 1 player Cat Paw U and No. 2 Kailynn Yang got DHS started with 6-1, 6-1 victories, then Angela Donahue, Lauren Duan, Jenna Mould and Marlena Angermann held up their ends with straight-set wins.

Down 6-2 in a second-set tiebreaker, Donahue began swinging away and reeled off six straight points on her way to a victory.

Battling darkness at No. 3, doubles, Amy Fang and Linda Su put up a great fight before losing, 3-6, 6-4, 7-6 (11-9).

UCD men’s water polo

Junior attacker Trevor Allen, a DHS graduate, was selected as co-recipient of KAP7/Western Water Polo Association Player of the Week award for the Aggies, who also jumped up three places to 11th in the Collegiate Water Polo Association’s coaches poll.

Allen shot 9-for-22 with an assist, five steals, five drawn exclusions and a field block in UCD’s run to 11th place in the UCI Invitational last weekend.

Allen, who is the first Aggie to win KAP7 Player of the Week since Bernie Rogers did it during the first week of the 2013 season, had two hat tricks in the tournament in addition to scoring the game-winner with a minute remaining in UCD’s 9-8 win over No. 16 St. Francis.

Girls basketball camp

There are still spots available for the annual Lady Blue Devil basketball camp, set for Oct. 26 and 27 at Davis High.

Open to fourth- through eighth-grade girls, the camp will emphasize fundamentals and individual skill development, according the DHS head coach Karen Foster.

Workouts run from noon to 4 p.m. each day and the camp is limited to 100 girls. Each participant will receive a T-shirt with the cost of $60.

Players will be divided into groups based on age and skill levels.

Foster says when the girls have finished the camp, they will be able to dribble with either hand, jump-shot stop under control, understand man-to-man defense, pass with both hands and learn proper shooting mechanics.

For more information or to register, contact Foster at 530-400-9768.

Lacrosse tournament

The Yolo 7v7 Lacrosse Classic is set for Dec. 7 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Brown Stadium.

The tournament will feature U11, U13, U15, U17 and U19 competition and teams will match up in a seven-on-seven format (two attackers, two midfielders, two defenders and a goalie).

Squads from Sacramento and San Francisco are expected to participate, and the event will include food, clothing and equipment venders.

Spooky fun run

Get Fit Davis is inviting local runners to get their Halloween fun started early this year, and get some exercise while doing it.

The Spooky Fun Run, set for Sunday, Oct. 27, will feature 5K and 10K races along with a quarter-mile Spooky Sprint for kids. After the Spooky Sprint goes off at 4 p.m., the longer races will begin at 4:30 p.m.

For more information, visit www.getfitdavis.com/events.html.

Davis Aquatic Masters

The Davis Aquatic Masters team is recruiting new members ages 18 and over who are interested in swimming in a coached workout environment. With 650 members, the local club is the second-largest masters swim team in the country.

DAM offers 10 one-hour workouts daily, two on Saturday and six additional hours of open swim on the weekend — all but one at the heated Civic Center Pool at Russell Boulevard and B Street. Workout participants are grouped by ability and, while the majority of DAM members swim for health and fitness, pool and open-water competitions are available.

Instruction comes from head coach Stu Kahn, who was voted USMS Swim Coach of the Year in 2012, along with his wife Mary and three other part-time coaches.

For swimmers who want to check out the club, DAM is offering the first three workouts for free. Parking and dressing room and shower facilities are also available.
