Devil girls are road warriors at Redwood

“It appears we are a road team,” Davis High girls lacrosse coach Jenn Morris told The Enterprise after the Blue Devils’ 13-11 win at Redwood on Wednesday.

Playing less than 24 hours after a home loss to Oak Ridge on Tuesday and without five of its starters, DHS found its passing game that had been lost in recent games and improved to 3-3 on the season.

Devil stalwarts Kiki Tanaka (four goals), Kylie Drexel (three goals, two assists) and Kelly Chuck (three goals, one assist) stepped up to make up for the absences of injured Ceci Cajandig and Bailey Gary and three others who also had to miss the game.

“The core group on attack helped control the pace of the game,” Morris said. “They were working together, something that has been missing the last two games, and they were passing the ball well. We had zero assists against Oak Rdge, but (Wednesday) was all about passing. We remembered that playing together is fun, and it’s how we win games.

“It was great to see Kiki have a breakthrough game, and it was really needed (Wednesday).”

With Davis playing with just two subs, two other locals took their games up a notch: Monica Berry and Lani Chang.

According to Morris, Berry was all over the field, scoring her first two goals of the season while making her presence felt in the midfield and helping out on defense. She added that Chang, who finished with one assist, was great in the midfield.

Additionally for the Blue Devils, Maia Polis had a goal with two assists and goalies Ally Weir (seven saves) and Chelsey Nickell (four stops) each played a solid half.

The DHS defense was especially strong in the second half, something Morris hoped will carry over to Thursday’s game against Sacramento Valley League rival St. Francis. The road contest starts at 4 p.m.
