DHS boys lacrosse win is costly

It’s usually not the winning team that looks somber and frustrated in its postgame huddle.

Unfortunately, that was the case for the Davis High boys lacrosse team on Tuesday night.

During the course of their 10-4 win over St. Mary’s at Ron & Mary Brown Stadium, the Blue Devils saw two key players — Daniel Rowen and Kevin Willefert — leave the game with serious injuries. Rowen sustained a concussion and Willefert suffered a broken collarbone.

Both injuries came on big hits from Rams players as the Stockton squad was physical throughout the game, frequently knocking over DHS players and forcing officials to throw penalty flags and send them to the penalty box.

DHS head coach Nick Juri was adamant after the game that the contact went far beyond the bounds of reasonable physical play:

“That’s all (the Rams) know how to do. They’re football players and they choose to play lacrosse. And it’s unfortunate that they’re not very good at it (because) then they take it out on us and our guys get hurt.”

At the same time, Juri added that his team’s sloppy offensive play led not only to turnovers and scores for St. Mary’s, but also put his players in dangerous situations.

“Our turnovers, when we had an extra man on offense, really hurt us. One led to an injury. Two more led to goals,” Juri said. “It’s unacceptable. It really is.

“At this point, (the players) need to get a lot better. They need to work a lot harder in practice. And they need to work to stop making mistakes that they keep making. And right now, it’s about not playing down to weaker teams. It’s about continuing to build on their skill level, their talent level. Right now, we don’t want it like we should. And we really need to want it a lot badder than we showed on the field (Tuesday).”

Still, through the injuries and the mistakes, the Devils had their moments in improving to 10-3 on the year.

Davis got out to a 4-0 lead behind the sharp-shooting of players like Michigan-bound senior Mikie Schlosser. Playing on his birthday, Schlosser finished with three goals and had the play of the night when he rifled a long-range shot into the net from the side of the goal to give his team its second score of the game.

After they took the opening advantage, the Blue Devils were never in any serious danger of losing their lead.

Willie Hawkins and Mark Bruemmer each added two goals for DHS, with Ryan Amesbury, Kian Reno and Rowen rounding out the scoring with one apiece.

The Devils will attempt to move on without Willefert and Rowen when they take on Tamalpais at home on Friday night.
