Facing Piedmont for the second time in five days, the Davis High boys were prepared for a close lacrosse match on Tuesday in a Bay Shore Athletic League playoff contest.

The Blue Devils got exactly what they expected and the teams played pretty much even except for two key scoring flurries that helped the Highlanders end DHS’ season with a 9-6 victory.

Piedmont scored three goals in quick succession at two different points in the game — in the second period and again in the fourth quarter.

Other than those few minutes, Will McPherson was a wall in front of the Devils’ goal. The goalie had eight saves in a scoreless first period, finished with 18 in the game and even added an interception.

The Blue Devil offense, however, got off to slow start. Finally, with his team trailing 4-0, Rudy Buhlman got one of his three takeaways to set up DHS’ first goal. Buhlman, who also added four ground balls, took the ball into the offensive zone and dished to Mark Bruemmer, who assisted Dillard Brown for the goal.

Brown, a senior, led the way for Davis with a hat trick in what turned out to be his final game.

Soon after Brown broke through, Willie Hawkins took the ball around the net to score, and the Devil defense killed out a man-down situation to close out the half behind 4-2.

After the teams traded goals in the third period — with Mikie Schlosser assisting Daniel Rowen for the DHS score — Piedmont took a 6-3 lead early in the fourth.

But the Blue Devils had one last run in them as face-off specialist Carson Stone (9-of-15 on the day) won three straight, with the final two leading to goals by Brown. All of sudden the locals were within one at 6-5.

The Highlanders, however, had one last flurry of their own, pouring in three straight for the second time in the game to take control.

With two minutes left, Hawkins absorbed a hit to the head and still found the net to cut it to 9-6, but DHS could not get any closer.

Stone led the team with eight ground balls, while Austin Barden, Tim McIntyre and Ryan Geary added takeways. Geary also contributed an assist.
