Sports briefs: Devils net a pair of field hockey wins

By
From page B8 | September 10, 2013 |

After a 4-0 home victory over Yuba City on Friday, the Davis High field hockey team traveled to River Valley on Monday to post an even bigger, 7-0 win.

Though DHS showed it has a lot of offensive weapons — six different players scored Monday — coach Sandie Marotti-Huckins wants to see more precise play from the Devils.

“We pretty much dominated but we still played a pretty mediocre game,” Marotti-Huckins said. “These Monday games are tough after not practicing for a couple of days … and River Valley was scrappy. It was kind of an eye-opener for us. Teams are gunning for us, they really want to knock as off, so we have to get back to the fundamentals.”

Still, Davis certainly did many things right as Sara Pinto scored two goals and added two assists, Rachel Foley had a goal and a pair of helpers and Natalie Silver notched two assists.

Single goals against River Valley came from Jade Bugsch, Katharine Gardias, Brooke Marigo and Whitney Sacramento, whose tally was a thing of beauty according to Marotti-Huckins. Liz Leshuk added an assist.

The coach also praised the play of her bench, including senior Tara Mullen, who “played really well both in the midfield and at forward.”

Silver was the star of the win over Yuba City as the senior posted two goals and an assist to Foley. Kelly Ragsdale scored the other Blue Devil goal and Pinto had an assist.

DHS girls golf

What started out as a good day for the Davis High girls golf team got even better when it actually took the course to take on Vacaville.

A few hours after announcing that the finally tabulated team standings from last week’s Helen Lengfield Memorial Tournament had them in third place among a strong field, the Blue Devils outplayed the Bulldogs by a large margin (211-290) over nine holes at Wildhorse on Monday.

In matching up with Vacaville, DHS golfers posted the top four scores: Emily Masiel with a 1-over 37, River Yang at 39, JiHye Lee with a 41 and Kaitlyn Honeychurch at 45.

Not far behind was Devil Hayley Mitchell, who carded a 48.

Battling nearly 100-degree temperatures on Monday, Masiel’s round featured a birdie and six pars, while Xiang’s number included two birdies.

At last week’s tournament, Davis’ total of 453 put it ahead of strong squads like Roseville, San Mateo and Granite Bay, and just behind Whitney and first-place Rocklin, the event hosts. Coincidentally, the Thunder will play host to the locals once again next Wednesday, Sept. 18.

“I was very happy with the progress this past week and look forward to playing Rocklin High next Wednesday,” said Blue Devil coach Rhonda Mohr. “Playing on a course we know should give us an advantage on Wednesday. We are looking forward to the challenge.”
