According to the announcer at Ron & Mary Brown Stadium, the attendance for the Davis High men’s lacrosse team’s “Break the Record Night” reached 18,657 fans.
Even though the real number was somewhere closer to 350, the Blue Devils played like all eyes in Davis were watching.
DHS easily topped visiting Drake, 14-4 — thanks to another outstanding performance by sophomore Mikie Schlosser.
Schlosser had five goals (tying his season high) and contributed four assists.
But as coach Nick Juri was quick to point out, the win was a team effort.
“The team was playing together tonight, everyone was playing the (full) 48 minutes. It’s starting to come together,” Juri noted. “They all worked together, and it came out good … you really can’t single out one player.”
Davis’ depth shined.
Carson Stone continued his dominance of face-offs, helping the Blue Devils win 12. Sophomore Willie Hawkins and freshman Kevin Willefert each netted two goals.
But just like Tuesday’s matchup against Bishop O’Dowd, diminutive freshman Mark Bruemmer came away with Juri’s greatest accolades.
“Mark Bruemmer just set up shop in the crease, and the goal was open for business,” the unreserved coach quipped.
Though Bruemmer only put in one goal of his own, his deft passing and dangerous positioning helped other Devils score.
Davis sophomore Kevin Klenzendorf opened the floodgates with a goal after the game was less than a minute old. Dillard Brown, Daniel Rowen and Kian Reno all chipped in a goal, and Reno added two assists.
Notes: Goalkeeper Will McPherson had limited opportunities to make saves thanks to a standout defense, but managed to stop six shots. The defense was led by Spencer Woo and Austin Barden … The Devils play next on April 12 at Berkeley High, and have their last home game on May 3 … “There was a great showing by the community, definitely more fans than we’ve had all year,” Juri said. “We really appreciate all the support.”
