In the past few games, the Davis High boys lacrosse team had made a habit of falling behind, then coming back to win in exciting fashion.

The dangerous aspect to that strategy was on display Tuesday at Brown Stadium as the Blue Devils were unable to extricate themselves from an early hole and lost, 11-7, to Foothill.

Coming off of an emotional win over rival Monte Vista on Friday, DHS (4-2) actually drew first blood against the Falcons as senior Daniel Rowen found the back of the net less than four minutes into the matchup.

Foothill, however, had a huge answer, going on a 4-0 run to end the period.

The Devils closed the gap in the second quarter, starting when senior Mark Bruemmer came around the net and put a move on a Falcon defender to get open for a goal. That made it 4-2 with 9:19 left before halftime.

A minute later, Davis struck again as attacker Sam Eaton found a cutting Ryan Amesbury, who brought the locals to within one. The short-lived 4-3 deficit was as close as the Blue Devils would be for the rest of the night.

Foothill responded to the DHS challenge emphatically, notching four goals in a five-minute span, and took an 8-3 advantage into intermission.

“We had a big high on Friday night when we were able to beat Monte Vista,” said Devil coach Nick Juri. “We came out (Tuesday), and the attitude was that we were gonna scrape these guys. Obviously they had other plans.”

But Davis wasn’t going down without a fight and the two teams traded goals throughout the third period. Bruemmer scored off the rebound from a Jake Hammond shot then, after a Falcon tally, Eaton took a rare bounce pass from Liam Neville and turned it into a goal.

Amesbury cut through the defense and found the net with 49 seconds left in the third, then completed his hat trick on a man-down goal with 4:20 remaining in the contest, but Foothill held onto its lead.

Hammond found several ways to contribute to the Blue Devil cause, winning 16 of 20 face-offs and collecting a team-high seven ground balls.

Next up for DHS is a Saturday (3 p.m.) home game against College Park. Juri said the Devils would be focusing on improving their mental toughness before that matchup.

“I expect (College Park) to come out, especially after seeing the result of this game, looking like they can do something,” Juri said. “I expect (the Blue Devils) to rebound, but they have to work and they have to have the right mindset.”
