Nine-goal spurt sends Devils past Bella Vista

Playing a road match at Bella Vista on Tuesday night, the Davis High boys lacrosse team needed a few minutes to find its focus. But once they did, the Blue Devils were unstoppable — especially on offense — taking down the Broncos, 17-11.

After DHS gave up three quick goals, senior Willie Hawkins got the Devils on the board with two first-quarter tallies.

That set things in motion as the locals poured in nine unanswered goals to take control of the contest. Following Hawkins’ pair, Sam Eaton scored a goal then Mikie Schlosser found the net to give Davis a lead it would not relinquish.

It was fitting that those three got the Blue Devils going as each had a huge game. Schlosser finished with five goals, three assists and two interceptions, Hawkins had five goals and two assists and Eaton posted a hat trick and added one assist.

DHS turned a 4-3 first-period advantage into a 9-4 halftime lead. Up 13-7 after three periods, the Devils held off a late charge by Bella Vista to get the six-goal win.

“The offense played solid,” said Davis coach Nick Juri. “They’re starting to find the looks and manipulate defenses. I’m proud of the team responding to an early three-goal deficit with nine unanswered goals.”

Other local scorers were Mark Bruemmer (two goals and one assist), Liam Neville and Ryan Amesbury, while Kian Reno had two assists and Rudy Buhlman added one. The contributions from those two didn’t end there, however, as Reno was great on face-offs, winning 16-of-23, and Bulhman was dominant on defense, finishing with nine interceptions and 10 ground balls.

Goalie Will McPherson made five saves for the Devils, who forced the Bronco keeper to make 16 stops.

DHS comes back to Ron & Mary Brown Stadium on Friday for a 7:30 p.m. match against Oak Ridge. Next week, following a Tuesday road game at Jesuit, the Blue Devils will be back home for Senior Night on Friday, May 3. Davis’ graduating players will be honored before the 7:30 p.m. contest against Granite Bay.
