Devil JV boys lacrosse leaps over Lincoln

From page B2 | April 03, 2013 |

The Davis High boys lacrosse team overpowered Lincoln of Stockton, 17-3, on Friday at Ron & Mary Brown Stadium.

The Blue Devils controlled the ball for most of the first quarter, rebounding their own near-misses until sophomore midfielder Yared Haile dodged in, hit traffic and — with great composure — backed out and fed sophomore attacker Isaiah West for the goal.

Soon after, freshman midfielder Connor Amesbury picked up his own rebound and produced the first of his four goals on sharp, quick moves through the teeth of the Trojan defense. Amesbury’s quick reflexes also led the team in takeaways with three.

Later, a high point for DHS fans was a goal by fleet-of-foot sophomore midfielder Jake Guida off an assist from attacker Griffin McNamara. Despite Guida’s contributions on offense all season, this was his first tally — his second coming on an unassisted goal in the third quarter.

Freshman midfielder Tom Thornton finished the Devils’ first-period onslaught when he hit West, who scored in heavy traffic to make it 5-0.

At the start of the second quarter, sophomore defender Brian Johnstone put an end to a Lincoln fastbreak, firing the ball back down to Thornton, who again found West to make it 6-0. McNamara continued to frustrate the Trojans by scoring off a nifty pass and, 20 seconds later, he fed freshman midfielder Matthew Scheiber, who made things 8-0.

The Trojans’ irritation started to show when sophomore Jed Arvin, who typically plays attack, won a long-fought face-off by snatching the ball out of the air and drawing two penalties near the goal just before the whistle blew for a third. But Lincoln’s defense pulled itself together and was nearly successful in killing the double-man-down situation. Davis coach Adam Price called a timeout and must have had a trick up his sleeve since it led to a sneaky West-to-Arvin goal five seconds after play resumed.

Johnstone made the most of his long stick to pull the ball high out of the air on a Lincoln scoring attempt and ran it coast-to-coast for a goal. And when McNamara mustered another tally off of a West assist it was an 11-0 local advantage at halftime.

The Trojans came out strong and aggressive in the second half, starting the third quarter with a fairer share of the possessions and finally scoring. But Thornton answered back unassisted down the middle and another freshman midfielder, Alex Levine, picked up a grounder and teamed with Justin Reno for a clear that became a Reno goal.

Haile, who provided smart and solid play all afternoon, had a left-handed rocket from 20 yards out to bring the score to 16-3 with seven seconds to go in the third quarter.

Thornton’s late goal brought the final score to 17-3.

The Blue Devils got stellar goalie play as sophomore keeper Ryan Mack pitched a shutout in the first half and Max Williams contributed four saves in the second half. Jackson Herget won 10 of 15 face-offs and scooped up eight groundballs. Reno picked up five and McNamara four, while DHS defender Sachin Kumar had two grounders and a takeaway.
