The Davis High junior varsity girls lacrosse team played tough in a season-ending loss to Oak Ridge on May 6.

Early goals from Hanah Wyman, Isabella Babich and Tess McDaniel staked the Blue Devils (6-8) to a 4-1 lead. But despite eight first-half saves by DHS goalie Sophia Hahn, the Trojans went on a 6-0 run and gained control.

Babich added two more goals for a hat trick and Abbey Eaton finished the Devil scoring on a free-position shot.

Davis coach Lisa Branch had a simple explanation for the lopsided loss after three straight wins:

“We didn’t control the draw as effectively as we have the last couple of games.”

Finishing its season in strong fashion, the Blue Devils split their final two games.

DHS (13-1-4, 6-0-2) dropped a heartbreaker to Granite Bay on April 29, before routing Bella Vista, 15-2, on May 2.

The fast and accurate Devil offense found the net 101 times on the season, with the strong, relentless Davis defense allowing but 43 goals.

The locals’ final-game blowout started with a takeaway from Paul Buhlman that led to a Sean Gellen goal. Gellen found the net again, off a whip assist from Justin Reno, and sophomore Connor Amesbury ended the first quarter with two goals of his own.

Reno and Gellen were called up to help the Blue Devil varsity squad in the playoffs.

Later in the win over Bella Vista, Matt Scheiber, Tom Thornton and Reno found the net before a sweet offensive play by Scheiber to Quinn Harty to Michael Ibrahim accounted for Ibrahim’s first goal of the season and Harty’s first assist.

Reno then earned a takeaway and ran coast-to-coast to assist Thornton, whose goal put DHS up 10-0 at halftime. Key saves by goalie Miles Herget paced a tough first-half defense that kept the Broncos scoreless before intermission.

Reno, Aidan Mager, Scheiber, Thornton and Gellen found the net in the second half.

The loss to Granite Bay “was a tale of two halves,” according to coach Lorne Silverstein:

“After a lackluster first half — down 5-1 at intermission — Davis was kept in the game by spectacular goalie play from Herget (13 saves), who made multiple point-blank saves to keep it a four-goal game.”

The Devils flipped the table in the second half with stellar defense and excellent face-off work from Gellen and long stick middie Enya Fujishima.

Reno found the net two more times for his hat trick, followed by single goals from Amesbury, Gellen and Scheiber — putting Davis ahead.

The Grizzlies found the net with only 39 seconds left to tie the game and force overtime.

Each team traded possessions and had multiple chances to take the contest until Granite Bay eventually prevailed. Gellen won 9-of-14 face-offs and led the locals with seven ground balls, while Buhlman had a pair of takeaways.
