After playing seven great periods on Friday and Saturday, the Davis High boys offense came up empty in the fourth quarter of a lacrosse game against Novato and had to settle for a split of its weekend matchups.

A goal by the Hornets in the final minute of Saturday’s contest gave them a 7-6 win at Ron & Mary Brown Stadium, one day after the Blue Devils went on the road to beat Bella Vista, 14-9. DHS’ dependable defense was there in both games.

On Saturday, the Devils fell behind early despite three first-period saves from goalie Will McPherson, trailing 2-0 after one quarter. The locals rebounded quickly in the second, breaking onto the scoreboard when Sam Eaton stuffed in a goal from close range.

Soon after, Kelby Spore’s bone-crunching hit set up a Liam Neville-to-Ryan Amesbury tally — tying the game at 2-2 — then Neville set up Daniel Rowen, and Mikie Schlosser also scored to make it 4-2 Davis.

This time, however, Novato responded with two quick goals and only a strong defensive effort from Blue Devils Rowen, Connal Hart, Rudy Buhlman and Kian Reno, and two saves by McPherson, kept the contest tied at halftime.

The defenses dominated the third period as the teams played eight scoreless minutes before each ended the quarter with a two-goal flurry. Rowen and Reno had what would turn out to be DHS’ final two goals of the day.

With the match tied at 6-6, the final period was another defensive struggle but the Hornets eventually tallied the winning goal with just 41 seconds to play.

On Friday, draw controls by Hart, Reno and Jake Hammon — just up from junior varsity — were key as the Devils got an early goal from Schlosser and a leaping tally from Rowen before going on a three-goal streak in the second period to take control. Logan Davis, Willie Hawkins and Mark Bruemmer were among the Davis players to score as the Blue Devils stayed comfortably ahead of host Bella Vista.

DHS’ next three games are in the friendly confines of Brown Stadium, starting with 7:30 p.m. match on Friday against Lincoln of Stockton.
