Stenz shines but Brookside beats Blue Devils

STOCKTON — With Delta Valley Conference play looming on Friday, the Davis High girls basketball team had a chance Wednesday to get one last nonleague game under its belt — and it was a doozy.

Going on the road to face a Brookside Christian Squad that came into the contest at 15-4, the Lady Blue Devils opened up leads in the first and second periods and nearly did it again in the third before succumbing to the Knights, 68-54.

DHS now heads into its DVC opener — a 7 p.m. matchup against Elk Grove on Friday at The Cage — with a 10-6 record.

“I was very happy with the way we played,” said Davis coach Karen Foster. “It was a great game to get us ready for league and it gave us a glimpse at what we will see if we make the playoffs.”

For the defending conference champion Devils, a postseason berth is a real possibility, especially if junior Emma Stenz keeps playing like she did on Wednesday. With her team struggling from outside Stenz went down low and poured in a game-high 24 points — including four three-point plays — and grabbed 15 rebounds.

“That was one of the best games she’s ever had,” Foster said of Stenz. “She had to take over inside and (her teammates) got her the ball and she finished.”

In fact, Foster said her entire team played both offense and defense at a high level. There was just one problem, a familiar one for the Lady Blue Devils: too many turnovers, this time 29 of them.

“Our girls played great defense against a high-caliber team,” Foster said. “I was happy with our shot selection and our execution on offense, but we just had too many turnovers.”

With Sophie Seng (nine points) and Rachael Allison (eight) working with Stenz and Caitlin Mazzeloni (six), DHS actually got out to a 20-15 lead with a few minutes to play in the first half. But that’s when Brookside took advantage of some Devil turnovers and exploded for a 13-0 run to end the second period.

Even after that, Davis battled back to cut the Knight advantage to one point in the third quarter, but Brookside once again pulled away.

“We played a nice 32-minute game; the girls never let up,” Foster said.
