DHS girls lacrosse rolls in spring break

The Davis High girls lacrosse team has officially hit its stride. And the momentum only continued to build on Friday night at Halden Field.

After opening the season with three losses, the Blue Devils won their ninth straight game, smothering Clayton Valley, 17-4.

“They are starting to trust each other,” said DHS head coach Jenn Morris. “Hopefully, this gives us confidence going into (a weeklong spring break).”

Riding high, the Devils raced out to a 4-0 lead, then widened the gap for the rest of the game. Sophomore Kelly Chuck paced a balanced DHS offense with three goals.

“I thought Kelly Chuck had a really nice game. She hustled a lot,” Morris said.

Ashley Pugh, Kiki Tanaka, Kylie Drexel, and Mari Cajandig all had two goals for the Blue Devils, while junior Caron Miller and sophomore Christina Son each added one. Sophomore Shauna Simon also chipped in with her first score of the season.

“I think Shauna Simon has really come on as a solid player,” Morris said, mentioning Simon as part of an effective, young rotation.

“(Sophomore) Sam Fung is another player (who is contributing),” Morris said. “(Simon and Fung) both hustle 100 percent. They both have good speed and good skills. They are both smart players. They play well on and off the ball.”

The strong play of the sophomores has bolstered DHS depth, allowing the Devils to give its more established players some rest.

“We don’t lose anything when we go to our bench,” Morris said.

As proof of this concept, Davis’ substitution pattern so little change on Friday, despite the blowout victory. With everyone contributing on a daily basis, there are no little used backups to send in when the score is lopsided.

With the school now taking spring break, the Blue Devils will get some time off  before Bishop O’Dowd comes to town on April 12.
