There will be girls playoff soccer under the lights Tuesday night when No. 1 postseason seed Davis High hosts Vallejo in a 7 p.m. match at Yudin Field.

DHS athletic director Dennis Foster confirmed the game-time change on Monday.

The 6-9-2 Apaches are the third-place team out of the Solano County Athletic League.

Davis landing the top ranking in the Sac-Joaquin Section bracket was a little surprising to some — including those close to the Blue Devil soccer program.

First, No. 2 seed St. Francis (12-1-7) is ranked higher than Davis in all the important soccer polls and Franklin (15-3) — the Delta Valley Conference co-champs with the Devils (17-4-1) — has a better winning percentage and split its two games with the locals.

Nonetheless, DHS has won nine straight since its April 1 loss (1-0) to the Wildcats.

Blue Devil coach Sara Stone says her girls have earned their lofty status:

“Truthfully, we were so prepared to end the league strong after beating Franklin (3-2 on April 17). I knew if we stayed focused and played well, we would share the league title and allow us to move on (with a pretty good seeding).”

But the top seed?

“We had a tough preseason schedule (handing St. Francis its only loss), so maybe that played into the seeding … along with the success this team has had. Nonetheless, it’s exciting.”

The Devils head into the playoffs in relatively healthy condition. Emily Gao is battling a muscle strain and Jaha McLean (knee) is a game-time decision.

Davis had scored 69 goals and allowed only 11, while Vallejo has scored but 34 times and coughed up almost 50 goals.

UCD baseball

Cal State Northridge broke a tie with a run in Sunday’s seventh inning, then scored five times in the eighth to put away the Aggies, 10-4, at Dobbins Stadium.

The second-place Matadors (29-18, 14-4 Big West) earned their ninth consecutive league win by completing the sweep of UCD (16-29, 3-15). In the loss, Aggie pitchers issued nine walks, hit a batter and were called for a pair of balks.

On the bright side for UCD, first baseman Spencer Henderson went 2-for-3 with a pair of RBIs and Mike Mazzara hit his first career home run, a solo shot to left in the first inning.

The locals wrap up their five-game homestand at 2:30 p.m. Tuesday when they host rival Sacramento State.

UCD softball

Continuing their pitchers’ duel from the previous day, Aggie starter Justine Vela and Long Beach State’s Erin Jones-Wesley matched each other’s efforts through the first seven innings of Sunday’s series finale at the 49er Softball Complex, posting zeroes across the scoreboard to force extra innings.

In the bottom of the eighth, LBSU designated player Karli Sandoval was hit by a pitch with the bases loaded to end the game, with the 49ers (35-20, 17-7 Big West) edging UCD, 1-0.

The Aggies, who fell to 22-27 overall and 8-13 in league play, were led by right fielder Jasmine Lee’s two hits.
