Late Chuck goal gives DHS a lacrosse win

In Tuesday’s season opener, the senior-heavy Davis High girls lacrosse team showed it could win without two of its 12th-grade standouts, but just barely.

After host Las Lomas made a late run to tie things up, senior Kelly Chuck responded by nailing the game-winner with just 59 seconds left in the Blue Devils’ 12-11 victory.

DHS was playing without senior defender Natalie Serdahl — who was competing for the Devil ski team in the state finals — and longtime standout Ceci Cajandig (injury) but other players stepped up on the field and in the huddle.

“Senior leadership took over,” said Davis coach Jenn Morris. “This is a team that has been in tight games before and knows how to come up with a win.”

Twelfth-grade attacker Lani Chang filled in on defense and “did an outstanding job,” according to Morris, who added that Chang’s classmate Christina Son helped the local defense from her midfield position.

Elizabeth Leshuk and Monica Berry, another senior, also boosted the Blue Devil defense, which was anchored by a great performance from goalie Ally Weir (15 saves on the night).

On offense, Chuck and senior Kylie Drexel did most of the damage, each finishing with five goals. Drexel added four assists and seven draw controls.

“Kylie is doing everything she can to help her team win, and I think the other players feed off her intensity,” Morris said. “Kelly and Kylie were working well together on attack.”

Kiki Tanaka and Chang each had single tallies to round out the scoring for DHS, which led by as many as four goals before Las Lomas’ late rally.
