Sports briefs: Hard weekend for Devil softball squad

From page B3 | March 19, 2013 |

The Davis High softball teams faced two very tough teams last weekend, losing both games but gaining solid experience while helping to raise money for the Albie Aware Breast Cancer Foundation.

On Friday, the Blue Devils took on a Vanden squad that is once again one of the top Division-III teams in the Sac-Joaquin Section.

In that contest, DHS actually took a 2-0 lead in the top of the first inning before the Vikings got going and finished with a 9-4 win. Ashley Dufresne and Stephanie Cello paced the Devil offense as each had two hits and an RBI, while Sarah Allen-Sutter and Madi Benner pitched well through three Davis errors.

“Vanden hits and runs very well and should win their section again,” said Blue Devil coach Art Guerra. “(We) played two very good softball teams.”

Saturday contest, which was part of the Swingin’ For Life Tournament at American River College, featured fewer highlights for the locals as Oak Ridge ran away with a 12-0 win.

After the two tough outings, DHS is itching to get back on the field, so much so that a game against Pioneer that originally was scheduled for Thursday has been moved to Tuesday. The Devils will head to Woodland to face the Patriots at 4:30 p.m.

After the Blue Devils’ previously scheduled match against Pioneer was canceled before the season, coach Julie Crawford filled the open date with a contest against Capital Christian.

The switch worked out well for DHS, which not only got a three-game win, but also learned a bit about its future Delta Valley Conference foes. The Cougars had previously played Grant and Monterey Trail — taking one game each off of the two squads that Crawford thinks will be at the top of the DVC — as well as Franklin, in a match that went five sets.

But the Devils — who travel to Franklin for their league opener on Thursday (5 p.m.) — swept Capital Christian, without even playing their best.

“I’ve seen us play at a higher level. We kind of played down and did just enough to stay ahead of them,” Crawford said. “It teaches us a good lesson that we need to shut the door when we have the lead.”

Still, Davis got strong performances at the net from Dan Bonetti and Andre Foster, and Crawford said setter Don-Wook Shin is “really starting to find a rhythm.”
