RANCHO CORDOVA — Two of Griffin McNamara’s four goals broke a tie early in the fourth quarter, and provided the Davis High boys lacrosse team’s cushion in a 12-10 win at Bella Vista on Friday night.

The close Sacramento Valley Lacrosse Conference contest was tied at the end of the first period and the end of the third quarter. The Blue Devil victory moved their record to 9-2 overall and 2-0 in league play.

Liam Neville got things started for DHS, scoring the first goal of the game, while Devil goalie Vikram Prathap blocked the Broncos’ initial attempt.

After a Ryan Amesbury goal, Neville used a quick dodge then sent his shot into the lower right corner of the net to put the locals up 3-0. Bella Vista, however, answered with three tallies of its own, tying things up heading into the second quarter.

McNamara then got his big night started, scoring early in the second period off a pass from Kian Reno, before Neville completed his hat trick by skipping the ball off the wet grass and into the goal.

Mark Bruemmer then fed Aidan Delplanque, who made an athletic catch and beat the goalie with a shot to the lower left corner. Daniel Rowen collected a ground ball and found the net, and McNamara scored once more just before halftime.

Amesbury’s goal put the Blue Devils ahead 9-5 early in the third, but a run of four straight by Bella Visa tied the score by the start of the fourth quarter.

Following McNamara’s two key goals, Bruemmer took a pass from Logan Davis at the top of the crease and finished the DHS scoring.

Prathap and the Devil defense — paced by Connal Hart, Sam Gellen, Daniel Pardee, Brian Johnstone and Liam Condon — took over from there, limiting the Broncos to just one fourth-period goal to preserve the win.

“(We) fought hard to hold on to the lead and win the game,” said Davis coach Nick Juri. “McNamara carried us in the fourth quarter and Reno, Sam Eaton and Hart showed incredible commitment to the team by playing through injuries and illness to secure the win.”

The Blue Devils are home for a pair of games this week, hosting St. Mary’s on Tuesday (7:30 p.m.) before Jesuit is in town Friday for Break the Record Night.

At that free-admission event, a color guard will be on hand to perform during the national anthem as the junior varsity game gets underway at 5:30 p.m. followed by the varsity outing at 7:30 p.m.

Outback Steakhouse ribs and salad as well as refreshments from Cenarios Pizza, Jamba Juice and Thai Recipes will be available for purchase, with first-half proceeds going to the Gary Sinise Foundation.

DHS fans are encouraged to wear blue and white.
