After opening the season with an 8-2 win over University on March 7, the Davis High junior varsity girls lacrosse team split back-to-back games last weekend.

Despite an early score on a crease roll by Tess McDaniel, the Blue Devils couldn’t keep pace with Monte Vista’s methodical offense on Friday night.

Late goals by Hanah Wyman and Isabel Realyvasquez accounted for the remaining DHS scoring in an 11-3 loss.

The Devils bounced back against Foothill on Saturday, winning 8-4.

Esther Wang scored twice while Isabella Babich tallied the first of her game-high three goals to stake Davis to a 3-2 halftime lead.

The Blue Devils broke the game open after the break using a balanced attack that included goals from Babich, Wyman, Ella Silverstein and Abbey Eaton.

DHS coach Lisa Branch noted her team’s improved play in the second game and was pleased that they dominated on the draw and controlled the ball much better in the win.

While corralling two sets of Broncos, the Blue Devils couldn’t rein in the Mustangs in games over the past week.

DHS beat Bella Vista, 10-3, in a March 11 matchup, and topped Northgate, 8-2, on Saturday. However, the locals dropped a nail-biter to Monte Vista, 9-7.

Against BV, a scoreless first quarter quickly changed when Devils Aidan Mager and Sean Gellen started the onslaught with five goals.

With less than a minute remaining to halftime, Justin Reno added a goal of his own.

Coach Lorne Silverstein noted that standout defensive play of Paul Buhlman, Enya Fujishima and Alex Levine — combined with contributions by Garrison Koeberer, Noah Lockard, Chris Paige, Austin Griffiths and Matthew Scheiber in the face-off circle — in the Davis victory.

Local goalie Miles Herget was a wall and, as soon as the Broncos finally scored, Gellen answered with back-to-back goals.

Facing Monte Vista, the Blue Devils fell behind 2-0, but Scheiber put them on the board before Gellen tied things up.

Defense — headed by Buhlman, Jake Griffiths, Alex Levine and Fujishima — kept the Mustangs within shouting distance while Gellen found the net three more times.

“The entire team contributed and played well,” Silverstein said. “But it was the little things that made the difference.”

Herget finished with eight saves.

On Saturday, four goals from Gellen and solo scores by Scheiber, Tom Thornton, Connor Amesbury and Austin Griffiths overwhelmed Northgate.

Buhlman and Mager had some slick assists and again the defense was stingy.

Fujishima led DHS with five ground balls and four takeaways.

Sheldon and Rocklin were the latest notches for the 8-0-1 Blue Devils.

First, early last week, the Huskies fell, 6-0, at Yudin Field.

An eight-shot first half by DHS saw Kate Bosco score twice, once on a cross by Tiffany Miras and once on an Alexis Olmedo through ball.

Hannah DeKnikker then scored off a Bosco assist before Elsa Iverson’s tap-in off an A.J. Schiesari rebound made it 4-0 at the break.

According to Devil coach Robert Smith, his team “had 15 quality shots in the second half,” but only Marin Garcia’s long-range blast and Mackenzie Quick’s first goal of the season found the net.

Morgan Melter and Willa Moffatt drew Smith’s praise for their defensive play.

Despite 14 shots to only four for Rocklin, Davis had to work hard to outlast the Thunder 4-2.

With her team trailing 1-0 at the half, Blue Devil wing Bhavna Kodira was fouled in the box, resulting in a successful Miras PK.

A mix up on defense allowed Rocklin to go up 2-1, but back came DHS …

DeKnikker (from Maggie Whittemore) evened things before the duo converted again — this time DeKnikker on a spot-on cross from Whittemore — giving the Devils the advantage for good.

“Whittemore put an exclamation point on a stellar game by blasting a free kick that the Thunder keeper could only admire as the ball whizzed just under the bar,” Smith explained.

Megan Klisiewicz and Jodie Stroeve were strong for the Davis defense.
