The Davis High boys lacrosse team figured its season was over after dropping a Bay Shore Athletic League playoff game last week to Piedmont.

So when the call came that the Blue Devils still had received a bid to the North Coast Section tournament — to play at Amador Valley on Wednesday — they were excited to get to pick up their sticks one last time.

DHS fell to the powerful Dons, 18-4, officially ending its season. But for the young Devils, just playing in the section tournament was an experience that should prove helpful next season.

Despite the tough competition, Davis go off to a strong start against Amador Valley, as the first quarter ended in a 2-2 tie.

Both of the Blue Devils’ first-period goals were impressive as Willie Hawkins emerged from a group of defenders to notch the first goal. Later, defender Austin Barden took the ball all the way up the field and sent it into the net.

The Dons, however, got it going in the second quarter peppering DHS goalie Will McPherson with shot. Though McPherson held his own — and finished with 16 saves on the day — Amador scored six straight to take an 8-2 leads. A face-off win by Carson Stone gave the Devils a chance to add one goal before intermission as Dillard Bown assisted Ryan Geary.

Stone not only won 10 of 15 face-offs for Davis, but also led the team with seven ground balls.

The Dons went on another big run at the start of the second half, finding the net eight times in the third period to go up 16-3.

In the final period, DHS standout Mikie Schlosser — who scored 58 of his team’s 123 goals in 2011 — finally broke away from Amador’s stifling defense to score two quick goals. The flurry made it 16-5 before the Dons finished the game with two goals of their own.

Rudy Bulman paced the Blue Devil defense with five interceptions on Wednesday, bringing his season leading total to 55.

Davis’ season comes to an end, but not before the Devils put up some impressive numbers. Top scorer Schlosser also led the team in assists with 16 and Kian Reno was second with 12. Mark Bruemmer was second on the squad with 18 goals, to go along with 11 assists, while Hawkins, Daniel Rowen and Reno each had 10. Kevin Willefert was another offensive star with nine goals and a couple of assists.
