Mixed results for DHS soccer teams

It was a mixed bag for the DHS soccer teams. The girls found their footing after a shocking loss, but the boys continue to struggle down the stretch.

Here’s a quick look at the team’s Monday’s games …

The Davis High girls soccer team didn’t get a chance to celebrate a Delta League title last Friday as it fell to St. Francis. However, the Blue Devils’ first losing streak in more than half a decade ended at one as they topped Sheldon 5-0.

DHS improved to 10-1-3 overall and 9-1-1 in league. Davis has a chance to capture its sixth consecutive league title today on Senior Night against Cosumnes Oaks. Kickoff at Brown Stadium is slated for 5 p.m.

“We had a good first half. We have some injuries, and we only had 12 healthy players yesterday, but we handled that situation well,” said head coach Sara Stone. “I’m trying to get those players ready for (today) so that we can get the job done.”

欧洲杯竞猜Davis came out flying Monday, with senior Lily Byrne scoring twice in the first half to go along with goals from classmate Annabelle Lossin and freshman Olivia Johnson.

Lossin added a second strike off a free kick in the second half to cap the scoring for the Devils.

欧洲杯竞猜Davis — which holds a two-point lead in league standings — comes into tonight’s contest as heavy favorites.

“It’s senior night, we have four of our six seniors able to play, which gives us more of a reason to have a purpose to play in that game,” Stone said. “We’re playing for our team, but we’re also playing for our seniors. And we have more of an incentive because if we win the game, we win the league.”

Boys fall to Sheldon

欧洲杯竞猜By virtue of other Delta League team’s misfortunes, the Davis High boys soccer team qualified for the playoffs despite a 2-0 loss to Sheldon at Brown Stadium.

The Huskies (6-7-2 overall, 4-5-2 league) scored on either side of halftime. The Blue Devils would have clinched third in the league with a win.

“We self destructed, we just completely fell apart,” said head coach Alex Park. “No one had a good game today, not one player.”

欧洲杯竞猜Despite creating a multitude of chances early, DHS (9-6-2, 4-5-2) couldn’t find the back of the net and was punished for it twice, once on a set piece and once on a counter.

欧洲杯竞猜Matters became worse for the hosts in stoppage time when senior Cayden Hotaling was sent off after an on-field scuffle. Hotaling will miss the final regular-season game with a suspension.

欧洲杯竞猜The Devils travel today to sixth-place Cosumnes Oaks, which needs a win to qualify for the postseason. DHS could still finish third if it wins and Sheldon loses to Elk Grove. A loss could drop the Devils as far as fifth.
