DHS girls lacrosse falters against Amador Valley

The Davis High girls lacrosse team kept pace with Amador Valley in the first half, but the Blue Devils were not able to find another gear as the Dons ran away with an 18-9 victory at Ron & Mary Brown Stadium at DHS on Saturday.

DHS started the match strong and built a 3-1 lead against Amador Valley, which finished second in the North Coast Section the past two seasons. However, the Blue Devils relinquished their lead and never saw it again.

“(Amador is) a strong team, but we let them have this one a little too easily,” DHS coach Jenn Morris said. “We were flat from the beginning and even though the score was close at halftime (8-6), we were missing the little extra spark that we usually have in such a tight game.

“(Our) offense was forcing drives and hesitating on passes that could have resulted in big plays. We kind of stopped trusting each other, and that is never a good thing.”

In the first half, DHS was led by senior Maia Polis, who scored the first goal of the game and caused some big turnovers in midfield that led to an early 3-1 lead. The Dons then went on a 5-0 run late in the first half to take the lead.

DHS wasn’t out of it yet as senior Kelly Chuck found the net twice — including a score at the buzzer — to narrow the gap before halftime.

The Blue Devils were unable to build off the last-second goal in the final stanza.

“Unfortunately, the second half was where we fizzled,” said Morris, whose team hosts Oak Ridge on Tuesday at 7 p.m. “We just looked tired and out of sync.”

The Dons were firing on all cylinders, recording five unanswered goals before Blue Devil Kiki Tanaka found the back of the net with 14:55 to go in the game.

“It was just too little, too late,” Morris said. “Defense had a tough job today, and there were too many breakdowns. Senior Natalie Serdahl worked hard trying to keep her teammates together, but we just weren’t playing like a team. Draw controls were a struggle and it led to a lot of quick Amador goals.”

Blue Devil goalkeeper Ally Weir had 13 saves on the day.

Chuck finished with three goals, Kylie Drexel had two and Sarah Bloise had one. Collecting one assist each wereTanaka and Lani Chang.

“We can regroup and move forward knowing that this was not our best, but we need to figure out how to be consistent from the start of the game so we can come up with some of these big wins,” Morris said.
