Energized DHS boys trounce Trojans

What a spectacle it was; Mikie Schlosser’s strides putting more and more space between him and his defender en route to his fourth goal in the Davis High boys lacrosse team’s 15-4 win over Oak Ridge on Friday night.

With a skill that was illuminated by the lights of Ron & Mary Brown Stadium, Schlosser alone tallied as many goals as the Trojans to lift the Blue Devils in a Sacramento Valley Lacrosse League match.

The SVLL honeymoon hasn’t ended for DHS, which improved to 13-3 on the year and remained undefeated in its first season in the conference.

Schlosser wasn’t alone in the limelight Friday night. Devil Mark Bruemmer often joined in the foray, adding two goals and a few assists.

It was Ryan Amesbury who claimed the first local tally, which set in motion a rolling freight of momentum that brought the Blue Devils to a 9-2 divide by the halftime juncture.

During that time, Oak Ridge incurred more penalties than points. At one point, DHS senior Willie Hawkins exploited two straight man-up situations for goals.

Desperation led the Trojans to six more penalties after the break, four on unnecessary roughness calls. And just as they had in the first half, the Devils took advantage.

Amesbury collected another goal, and between Schlosser’s continued assault, junior Kian Reno also found the net.

Reno teamed with freshman Jake Hammond to handle face-off duties, which Davis head coach Nick Juri excitedly proclaimed as a point of success for the team — especially considering who they were up against.

“(Oak Ridge’s) face-off guy is going to Penn State,” he said, “And we beat him (Friday), if not, we at least tied him. That’s a player going to a Division I school next year — we had a junior and a freshman. That, obviously, makes me feel good.”

Hammond carried the ball away from a face-off in the match’s final minutes for an unassisted goal — putting an exclamation point on the night. He shot a bullet through Trojan defenders, and the legs of their goalkeeper, to complete the 15-4 win.

On the other hand, neither of the DHS goalies missed a beat in protecting the Blue Devil net. Will McPherson collected seven stops in the first half, and backup goalie Vikram Prathap let no shot go unimpeded in the final quarter.

It was a team-wide effort from the locals, a point that was emphasized by Juri, who added his delight at how well Davis executed its game plan:

“I asked them to talk to each-other, to be relentless on defense and to just be … crazy. They came out with a great amount of energy and were able to carry through with that.”

Now begins the countdown to the Devils’ main objective: the North Coast Section playoffs. The Blue Devils have an away match with Jesuit on Tuesday (7 p.m.), and then two more SVLL rematches before the postseason begins.

When asked what his squad would be taking from Friday’s win, Juri said: “The energy, and the focus.

“We’re going to carry it through to next week, and end the season undefeated in league.”
