Davis girls are awesome at Acalanes

Sometimes it all comes together.

The Davis High girls lacrosse team had been waiting several weeks to get everybody healthy and available. On Tuesday, the formula proved to be the catalyst for a win over one of Northern California’s best squads.

With their offense clicking on all cylinders, the Blue Devils stunned homestanding Acalanes, 21-18.

“In the first game (with) everyone is finally available and healthy, our attack put on a phenomenal show,” sixth-year DHS coach Jenn Morris said. “Acalanes is a tough team. They are currently at the top of the Division II pool in our section. We have not beaten this team since I have coached at Davis and this win meant a lot to myself and the team.”

Kiki Tanaka was the biggest beneficiary of the Devils’ proficient passing as she scored a team-high seven goals on just eight shots.

“Kiki just found her spots (Tuesday) and she was the key go-to shooter,” Morris said. “It was great to see her step up like this, especially so close to (St. Mary’s) where she will be attending college next year. Maybe she was feeling the excitement of (knowing she will be) playing at the next level just down the road next season.”

Five different Davis players had assists, including Kylie Drexel, who made her return from injury with four goals and one dish. Senior Ceci Cajandig and sophomore Sarah Bloise each chipped in with a hat trick with one assist, with Bloise dominating the first half and Cajandig ruling after the break.

None of the scoring would have been possible without ball possession, which was handled on this night by Kelly Chuck. The senior had seven draw controls to go with two goals and an assists.

Single tallies from Emmanuelle Cordier and Lani Chang finished the local scoring.

“Lani was a little bit of an unsung hero,” Morris said. “She had three ground balls, and was great in transition. She kept us calm when it was needed and provided some key outlet passes.”

Maia Polis added an assist for the Blue Devils, while defenders Natalie Serdahl, Bailey Gary and Liz Leshuk each made strong plays in front of goalie Chelsey Nickell, who posted eight saves.
