Davis High officials have announced that Thursday’s girls soccer playoff game against Granite Bay will be played at 3:30 p.m. at Yudin Field.

The Blue Devils (19-4-1) are the Sac-Joaquin Section’s top seed, and played like it in an 8-0 victory over Vallejo on Tuesday night.

No. 9 Granite Bay (9-6-2) advanced by defeating Turlock, 3-1, on Tuesday in its first postseason match since moving up from Division II. The Grizzlies won the 2011 D-II section championship.

DHS last met Granite Bay in 2012, when the Devils won an entertaining 1-0 contest.

The two squads were scheduled to play again this spring, but the game was canceled.

The Blue Devils picked a bad time to have an off day, losing 11-1 on Wednesday at Elk Grove. With the result, the Herd won the Delta Valley Conference and DHS fell to second place.

But the Devils, who finished 16-9-1 and 8-2 in DVC play, will have a chance to redeem themselves on Tuesday when they open the Sac-Joaquin Section playoffs by hosting Roseville in an outbracket game at 4 p.m.

Davis must beat the Tigers, who finished third in the SFL, to stay alive in the postseason.

Making their second consecutive appearance in the Sac-Joaquin Section playoffs, the Blue Devils gave host Oak Ridge all it could handle on Tuesday before falling in four games.

It marked the final appearance for DHS seniors Dan Bonetti and Sam Manderfield, who have lifted the Devils into perennial contenders, and 12th-grader Don-Wook Shin, who joined the squad this season to help forge a 10-8 record.

Tuesday’s match was a section tournament play-in contest.

UCD men’s basketball

Aggie head coach Jim Les announced Wednesday that Bulgarian big man Georgi Funtarov has signed a national letter of intent to join the UCD program.

The 6-foot-8, 205-pound forward from Sofia, Bulgaria — who played at Vermont Academy, a prep school in Saxton River, Va., this season — will join San Diego Player of the Year and All-California selection Brynton Lemar as part of the Aggies’ 2013 recruiting class.

Funtarov averaged 13 points and seven rebound sper game in 2012-13, shooting 47 percent from the floor and 40 percent from 3-point range.

“We love Georgi’s size, ability to shoot the ball and his competitive nature,” Les said. “His versatility to play inside and outside is a perfect fit for our system.

“Georgi’s character, academic profile and work ethic will allow him to achieve success both on and off the floor at UC Davis.”

A member of Bulgaria’s U16 national team that captured the European Championship in 2009, Funtarov also represented his country the following year at the under-18 championships. This summer, he will play in the European championships as a member of Bulgaria’s U20 squad.

UCD men’s golf

Aggie senior Tyler Raber, a DHS graduate, received his second career All-Big West first-team award while Matt Hansen, Jonny Baxter and Matt Seramin also received all-league distinction when the conference announced its awards on Wednesday.

Hansen was voted by the league’s head coaches to the All-Big West second team for the second straight year, with Baxter and Seramin selected as honorable mention.

Raber, who will participate as an individual in the NCAA West Regional next week in Pullman, Wash., redshirted last year, but was named to the Big West’s first team during his junior season in 2010-11. He was named honorable mention the previous year.

Hansen, a junior from Los Osos, enjoyed another outstanding season for the Aggies, capping his season with a tie for fifth place at last week’s Big West Championships. The 2011 Big West Freshman of the Year posted a 73.1 average this season to rank second on the team.
