The Davis High boys lacrosse team led wire-to-wire on Tuesday night, eventually defeating St. Mary’s, 13-7, in a Sacramento Valley Lacrosse Conference game at Brown Stadium.

The win pushed the Blue Devils’ record to 10-2 on the season, with a 3-0 mark in league play.

DHS got off to a blistering start, striking for three quick goals. Ryan Amesbury had the first of those tallies when he capitalized off of an excellent pass from Mark Bruemmer, who then chalked up another assist by hitting Aidan Delplanque for a breakaway goal.

Liam Neville capped off the early spurt with an unassisted goal, weaving his way through the Rams’ defense to make it 3-0.

“I liked how they brought the fire right off the bat,” said Devil head coach Nick Juri. “Going up 3-0 at the beginning of a game — that’s big.”

The scoring run cause St. Mary’s to switch to a zone defense that initially worked wonders, holding Davis scoreless into the second period. The local defense was just as stifling and the score stayed at 3-0 after one quarter.

But while the Rams struggled to get anything going in the first, the visitors got off to a hot offensive start in the second period, notching two goals to cut the deficit to 3-2.

The Blue Devils responded quickly, however, as Logan Davis utilized some of his basketball skills, grabbing an errant shot out of the air and quickly putting it into the net. Neville added another goal with a minute left in the half and DHS led 5-2 at the break.

The Rams struck first after intermission, winning the face-off and racing down the field for a score before 10 seconds had ticked away. Amesbury quickly matched that goal, tallying off of an assist from Griffin McNamara, who scored a goal of his own a minute later with Daniel Rowen providing the set-up.

Another St. Mary’s goal made it 7-4 with five minutes left in the third quarter, but that was as close as the Rams would come, thanks to a local scoring barrage that spanned the end of third and the beginning of the fourth.

Jed Arvin was the first to score, followed by McNamara, Rowen and Bruemmer. When the dust had cleared, the Devils had a commanding 11-4 advantage with 10 minutes to play. Two more goals, one from Kian Reno and another from Bruemmer, completed the Davis scoring.

But it wasn’t all offense for the Blue Devils.

“The defense played pretty solid,” Juri said. “(Goalie Vikram Prathap) played pretty solid … I think (he) did a great job in goal.”

Jesuit is next on DHS’ plate as the two teams meet on Friday at Brown Stadium for the Devils’ Break the Record Night.

The boost in fan support and energy should give Davis an edge, according to Juri. And the Blue Devils will need it as the Marauders come into the contest with a 7-3 record.

“I expect a tough fight,” Juri said. “We played them in a scrimmage earlier in the year and they beat us. We’ll be expecting them to come out hard.”
