Monte Vista ends DHS girls season again

DANVILLE — One of these seasons, the Davis High girls lacrosse team will get its revenge on Monte Vista, a squad it has played four straight times in the first round of the North Coast Section playoffs.

Unfortunately, 2014 was not the Blue Devils’ year as the host Mustangs eliminated DHS, 16-5, on Wednesday.

The Devils showed their youth early on, allowing Monte Vista to take a 7-1 halftime advantage, then score the first three goals after intermission to take control.

But that same youth means Davis will be back with a vengeance in 2015. All five local goals came out of the sticks of underclassmen, as junior Sarah Bloise had two, as did Nicole Pugh, and Camille Renaud added one. Pugh and Renaud are both freshmen.

Draw controls cost the Blue Devils all night as they won only six — three by Renaud and two by Pugh — and in the early going that, combined with poor shooting by the offense, put too much pressure on the DHS defense.

Still, senior goalie Ally Weir finished her Devil career with eight saves, many of them on point-blank shots.

Other seniors like Chelsey Nickell, Liz Leshuk and Emmanuelle Cordier earned coach Jenn Morris’ praise for their season-long defense, while 12th-grader Lydia Gegan’s offensive contributions were key.

“We’ll miss our five seniors,” Morris added. “They all worked hard to try to fill the gap from the large class that graduated last year. However, knowing that we will be returning a large group, we expect to be a much more experienced team next season.

“We have a lot of sophomores that were unsung heroes this season, and I expect great things from that group.”

Davis finished 9-9 in the regular season and took second place in the Sacramento Valley Lacrosse Conference.
