Blue Devil girls own Oak Ridge

When Oak Ridge saw the Davis High girls lacrosse team last month, the Blue Devils were struggling to find themselves while working through several injuries and the Trojans came away with a win.

Now, however, DHS is healthy, clicking on all cylinders and — following Friday’s 18-8 demolition at Oak Ridge — riding a five-game winning streak. The Devils are now 9-5 overall.

“We … (left) no doubt as to who was the stronger team,” said Davis coach Jenn Morris. “We wanted to make up for an early-season, one-goal loss … this game had to be a dominating win and it turned out to be just as we hoped.”

Sarah Bloise, still just a sophomore, continued her strong second half of the season by exploding for a team-best six goals. Meanwhile, senior Ceci Cajandig — one of Blue Devils who was missing in the first matchup — was all over the field scoring four goals with one assist, and picking up eight ground balls.

“(Ground balls) is a stat that tells us she was hustling to the ball and helping her team regain possession on the defensive end and in midfield,” Morris said. “Oak Ridge is a rough, physical team. Ceci took some hard hits, but she never let it rattle her, she just played through it and it made a difference.”

With the Trojans face-guarding DHS’ Kylie Drexel for most of the night, the standout senior still scored two goals, but also found other ways to contribute. Drexel won 10 face-offs which “helped calm the pace of the game,” according to Morris.

Monica Berry, Kelly Chuck and Kiki Tanaka rounded out the Devil scoring with two goals apiece, while Lani Chang had an assist.

“Our attack was smart,” Morris said. “This team was face-guarding Kylie, and pressuring us out, but we didn’t panic, we spread them out and created one-on-one challenges that ended in goals.”

The veteran coach also praised her defense, which was paced by the usual strong performances of seniors Natalie Serdahl and Bailey Gary, but also saw contributions from freshman Anna Belenis and Lauren Robison, who caused several turnovers in key situations.
