Freshman Camille Renaud had 10.8 seconds to find a way to tie the score of Friday night’s girls lacrosse game.

If she scored, it would send her Davis High squad into overtime. If she didn’t, the Blue Devils would lose a Sacramento Valley Lacrosse Conference game to visiting Oak Ridge.

Renaud only needed 2 1/2 seconds.

And her clutch goal ultimately led to DHS’ 15-14 win at a soggy Brown Stadium.

Renaud finished with four goals and junior Sarah Bloise led the Devils (4-4, 3-1) with seven.

“That’s (Renaud’s) second game-tying goal; for a freshman to take that kind of pressure on is amazing,” said Davis head coach Jenn Morris. “It just shows that she plays well beyond her years.”

But Renaud’s goal would not have been so big without great team defense from the locals, who forced the Trojans to turn the ball over with 30 seconds left.

In overtime, Bloise received the ball off of the opening draw, sped by the Oak Ridge defense, and whipped one of her nearly unstoppable shots past a helpless Trojan goalkeeper to give the Blue Devils a 14-13 lead.

Renaud then scored DHS’ 15th and final goal to put the game away. Morris said that winning such a hotly contested matchup will help the Devils down the road.

“This is that one we needed to show that we can come this close and we can finish it and we did,” Morris said. “I’m so proud that they did that because once you get that feeling, you know how to do it and you’re going to be able to do it again and again.”

However, from the beginning of the game it looked like Davis would have no problem with the visitors.

Bloise set the tone immediately, winning the opening draw then weaving her way through the Oak Ridge defense to put the locals up 1-0 just 11 seconds in.

She scored another goal in similar fashion, then assisted on a Renaud tally, still before the first minute had elapsed.

Another quick goal gave the Blue Devils a 4-0 lead with only 1:50 gone by.

“That (run) was very important,” Morris said. “Sarah has been (scoring early) a lot and that’s how we’re getting out to these quick, early leads. Now we need to learn to control the pace once we have that lead.”

After taking a 9-5 advantage into intermission, thanks to five goals from Bloise, DHS’ offense suddenly disappeared in the second half.

A 10-minute stretch during which the Devils couldn’t get anything going offensively allowed the Trojans to cut the lead to two. Morris said the lack of offense was due to poor shot selection.

“A lot of it was that we were forcing some really bad shots, we were tired — we starting shooting to shoot rather than shooting when it’s a good opportunity,” Morris said. “So those bad shots end up being turnovers and that really hurts us.”

Davis, however, bounced back and now prepares for a Monday (5:30 p.m.) home game against Canyon Crest Academy.

Note: Due to damp conditions after intermittent rain throughout the day, both Renaud and Bloise had to change sticks because the officials deemed the pockets of their sticks to be illegal.
