DHS boys beat Jesuit in a 3OT lacrosse thriller

This was lacrosse at its best.

When the Davis High and Jesuit boys teams locked horns on Friday afternoon, it took three overtimes to decided the outcome — an 8-7 Blue Devil victory.

Tied 7-7 at the end of regulation, neither team could break through until 17 seconds remained in the third extra period. It was then that DHS’ Mikie Schlosser got loose for his fifth goal of the well-played contest.

“Great win for the program and especially the players,” Devil coach Nick Juri said. “It was a hard fought game on both sides, all the credit to Jesuit, but our kids played their hearts out and it showed.”

Davis’ rugged defense — paced by Austin Barden, Rudy Buhlman, Tim McIntyre, Willie Hawkins and goalie Will McPherson — was at its best on Friday, pressuring the Marauders nonstop, while forcing multiple turnovers and setting up the offense with strong clears. Barden and Buhlman each had five takeaways with McIntyre stealing three. Buhlman and McIntyre led the team in picking up groundballs.

McPherson was a wall in front of the DHS goal. He finished with 11 saves, none of them bigger than a game-saving stop on a one-on-one situation in the second overtime.

Jesuit started the scoring in the first half, taking a quick 1-0 advantage, but the Blue Devils came right back with a pair of goals. First, Kian Reno grabbed the ball in the defensive end, and drove it all the way down the field to set up Mark Bruemmer’s goal. Schlosser followed that up with his first score, a left-handed shot on the run.

The Marauders then appeared to take control using a run of the four consecutive goals to take a 5-2 lead early in the second half. But the momentum quickly shifted again on four straight goals by DHS. Bruemmer connected first on a quick shot, then Schlosser threw an assist to Daniel Rowan for a long shot straight the settled into the top corner of the goal. Soon after, Reno notched his second assist of the game when he set up Kevin Willefert to tie the game.

When Schlosser got his hat trick early in the fourth quarter, the Devils briefly took a 6-5 lead, but the Marauders quickly equalized, then later took a 7-6 advantage. But with the DHS defense clicking on all cylinders the rest of the way, that would be the last time Jesuit would score.

Schlosser’s fourth goal late in the final period sent the game into overtime and, with the Marauders unable to break through, it was only a matter of time before he lost a defender and scored the game-winner.

With the kind of victory that can turn a season around now in their pocket, the Blue Devils begin a key four-game homestand on Tuesday at 7:30 p.m. against Bay Shore Athletic League rival Piedmont. Later this month, Davis will host Break the Record night at Ron & Mary Brown Stadium. When Sir Francis Drake comes to town on March 31, the festivities will included a special halftime show and good food as the Devils shoot for a record of 500 fans in attendance.
