Watching the Davis High boys lacrosse team beat Cardinal Newman 12-2 on Friday, it’s hard to believe the contest came at the end of the Blue Devils’ spring break.

DHS did not play like a team on vacation. The Devils’ passes were crisp and fast, and it took slightly more than a minute into the game before Ryan Amesbury found the back of the cage with his strong shot to the top right. Just about two minutes later, Willie Hawkins passed to Sam Eaton to make the score 2-0.

Cardinal Newman’s unforced turnovers kept the ball in the Devil offense for most of the first quarter, and it was only a matter of time until Mikie Schlosser found Liam Neville, who converted the pass into a goal to make it 3-0 at the quarter.

In the second quarter, Schlosser found the net less than 40 seconds in. The Cardinal offense began to pick up, but DHS’ defense of Rudy Bulman, Sam Gellen and Kelby Spore was relentless. Spore set up the next goal with his ground ball scoop and fast-break drive to the Devil half. Spore found Mark Bruemmer, who connected with Hawkins for a goal.

The Cardinal defense slowed the DHS onslaught until Eaton found Bruemmer for a direct shot to the net. Goalie Will McPherson played solidly with a beautiful takeaway during a Devil man-down situation. With less than two minutes left in the half, Cardinal Newman scored its first goal to head into the locker room 6-1.

At the beginning of the second half, Buhlman scooped up a ground ball dished to Kevin Willefert — playing in his first game since suffering an injury — who collected his first assist as Hawkins converted his pass. The Cardinals notched their second goal to make it 7-2.

The fourth quarter belonged to DHS. Amesbury wove through a tight Cardinal defense for a wicked left-handed shot to the net. Kian Reno followed with his own left-handed shot through the Cardinal defense to increase the Devil lead to 9-2. With an assist in his pocket, Willefert drove to the net for a graceful, easy shot past the Cardinal goalkeeper to add a goal of his own.

Immediately following a timeout, Amesbury drove to the net for his third goal of the game, and Neville picked up his second goal to cap the scoring. Goalie Vikram Prathap stopped one shot on goal in the second half, and freshman Jake Hammond ruled the faceoffs, winning six of eight.
