The Davis High girls lacrosse team realized early in Tuesday’s match against Bella Vista that it was going to be a fun night.
With their backups and younger players making big contributions, the Blue Devils rolled over Bella Vista, 18-1.
DHS led 14-1 at halftime and improved to 10-5 on the season.
“I was very happy with the performance of the team (Tuesday), everyone stepped up and played a great game,” said Devil coach Jenn Morris. “We are enjoying the last regular-season games, hoping that it will be enough to send us to playoffs so we can keep this great group together a little longer.”
The locals head to Granite Bay on Friday before hosting Cal (May 7) and St. Ignatius (May 10) in the final week of the regular season.
Davis’ balanced attack saw five different players tie for the team lead with two goals on Tuesday. Usual suspects Kylie Drexel, who added three assists, and Kiki Tanaka (two assists), were joined by Maia Polis, sophomore Delany Coleman, senior Lucy Hass and junior Emmanuelle Cordier in finding the net twice.
Polis added a pair of assists, while Hass and Cordier earned praise from Morris for their all-around performances:
“Lucy Hass had a great night helping not only on the offensive end, but adding four draw controls, and some great midfield transition. Emmanuelle Cordier was a standout on both ends as well.”
The Blue Devils’ all-hands-on-deck approach to scoring saw Lani Chang, Sarah Bloise and Monica Berry join Monica LeFlore and defenders Natalie Serdahl and Elizabeth Leshuk all notching single tallies. Kelly Chuck added two assists and Serdahl had one dish.
It wasn’t all offense, however, as the DHS defense allowed just one goal behind solid performances from keepers Ally Weir and Chelsey Nickell, who each played a half and had two saves apiece. Anna Belenis also played well for the locals.
