MORAGA — Sophomore midfielder Ryan Gross, a Davis High graduate, converted a penalty kick in the 42nd minute as the UC Davis men’s soccer team won a nonconference match, 1-0, at St. Mary’s on Thursday.

Gross’ goal, plus a stellar display of defense from the Aggies (2-3), helped UCD hand the Gaels (2-2) their first home loss of the year.

As has been the case in each game played by the Aggies this year, UCD outshot its opponent — this time 9-7. None of the St. Mary’s attempts were on goal.

By earning his 15th career shutout, senior goalkeeper Omar Zeenni now sits two shy of matching the Aggie record of 17 clean sheets set by Nic Platter (2000-04).

Headers by defender Sam Hoeck and forward Matt Sheldon nearly helped UCD increase its lead, as Sheldon and Gross led the Aggies in shots with two each.

On the other side of the pitch, UCD conducted a defensive clinic, frustrating the Gaels’ strikers all day long. So stifling were the Aggies’ corps of midfielders and defenders that St. Mary’s could not even enter UCD’s penalty area.

The Aggies return home on Sunday for a 5 p.m. match against San Francisco.

UCD men’s water polo

Aggie senior attacker Bernie Rogers captured the season’s first Western Water Polo Association Player of the Week award this week, the first such honor of his career and the first for UCD since Chris Richardson earned one almost one year ago.

Rogers, from Del Mar, led the Aggies (2-2) in most major categories during last weekend’s Triton Invitational, namely minutes played (103), goals (eight), assists (five) and
steals (four).

He scored a team-best four goals in Saturday’s win over WWPA foe Cal Baptist, and tallied two goals with two assists against sixth-ranked Long Beach State.

UCD is back in action next weekend in Berkeley at the NorCal Invitational.

DHS girls water polo

Playing without standout Colby Stapleton, who will miss a couple of weeks with a concussion, even coach Doug Wright was interested to see how the Blue Devils would perform when they opened the season on Thursday at Gunn.

The results were very good as DHS won 11-7.

“We did really well, the girls stepped up and the effort was great,” Wright said. “We named three captains last week — Heather Johnson, Lauren Owens and Haley Blackwell — and they ran warm-ups (Thursday). The girls were just ready to go.”

Johnson, a senior, and junior Mara Dominguez paced the Devils with four goals apiece and sophomore Kinsey Van Deynze added a hat trick as Davis came back from a 3-1 early deficit.

Johnson also play great defense against Gunn star Caroline Anderson, and junior Mattie Lilliedoll had a strong game in front of Blue Devil cage.

DHS girls volleyball

Even in a loss at Vacaville — the Blue Devils’ first in four matches this week — DHS coach Julie Crawford saw her team get better on Thursday.

The Devils nearly won the first game before falling 27-25 and dropped the next two, 25-18 and 25-17 but it was a couple of other numbers that were more important to Crawford.

Juniors Irene Rutazihana (12) and Maya Gilardo (10) were lights out playing defense at the net, forcing the powerful Bulldog hitters to change their strategy.

“We have been working on blocking a lot and it showed with those two big numbers,” Crawford said. “I told the girls after the game that the mark of a great team is putting everything together and it may not all happen in one match or in one week, but when we get to league play I think we are really going to be an elite team.

“(Thursday) was a loss but I feel hopeful.”

DHS boys soccer

On Thursday, the Blue Devils announced an exciting addition to their schedule — a home match against cross-county rival Woodland on Tuesday, Sept. 24.

DHS (5-2-1) will host the Wolves at 7 p.m. at Yudin Field in a matchup that comes the same week that the two schools will clash in a Friday night football game at Brown Stadium.

Training workshop

Professional runner Chelsea Reilly, a Davis High graduate who holds the program’s career record in the 1,600 meters and went on to be an All-American at Cal, is presenting a sports training workshop on Sunday to benefit the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society through Team in Training.

The workshop, which will be at the Davis High track from 10 a.m. to noon, is designed for anyone interested in improving performance and preventing injuries.

All levels are welcome with a $25 cash donation or check made out to LLS. Participants should wear exercise clothes and shoes and bring a water bottle. Those who have jump ropes are urged to bring them as well.

Foxy’s Fall Century

Registration is open for the Davis Bike Club’s Foxy’s Fall Century, a ride set for Saturday Oct. 19.

The club is offering a 100-mile endurance ride, a 60-mile “workout” and a 30-mile version — to Winters and back — that will be fun for the whole family.

Snacks, lunch and a post-ride meal are included and riders can sign up at www.davisbikeclub.org.
