If you want to be an attorney, one of the first things you learn is “possession is nine-tenths of law.”

If you want to be a successful lacrosse team, one of the first things you learn is, ah, possession is nine-tenths of the game.

After a patient offense built a 5-2 first-period lead, the Davis High boys lacrosse team started to lose control of the ball — and the game — as the Blue Devils fell 14-11 to visiting Piedmont on a drizzly Tuesday night.

“We have to take better care of the ball,” first-year varsity coach Nick Juri said after his team evened its Bay Shore Athletic League mark at 1-1 (3-5 overall). Juri added he was happy with the first half, but admitted “it kind of got away from us there in the second half. Possession is huge and we didn’t have very much of it late.”

Just 34 seconds into the night, Carson Stone made it 1-0 for DHS.

After Piedmont’s Chad Finkle tied things, DHS freshman Kian Reno untied them with a brilliant charge from the right.

Sixteen seconds later Mikie Schlosser ran his defender silly, swooped around the net and fired for a 3-1 lead.

After PHS attacker Sam Swenson tallied, Devil Mark Bruemmer (another freshman) found Stone open in the goal mouth. Instantly, Davis led, 4-2.

Then, just before the period ended, Dillard Brown made a long run — highlighted by one of his moves from his gridiron days — and stuck another Blue Devil goal.

But back came the Highlanders …

Mike Bobbletts scored twice within 90 seconds. Another slick Bruemmer pass found Reno, who tallied again, but Bobbletts connected with Andrew Meyers and Piedmont closed the gap to 6-5 at intermission.

As well as the DHS defenders managed to keep attackers wide in the first third of the game, the Highlanders started a relentless charge that saw them eventually open a five-goal lead early in the final period.

Five Piedmont goals — broken up by Devil Kevin Willefert’s score — handed control of the contest to the Highlanders.

Back-to-back strikes by Schlosser got Davis close at 10-9, but four straight Piedmont goals made it 14-9. In the final 84 seconds, Schlosser’s fourth score and Brown’s second made the final margin closer.

Juri praised the play of Stone — “When he wasn’t in the (penalty) box” — Schlosser and the trio of freshmen, Reno, Bruemmer and Willefert.

“Those three freshman played pretty much the whole game. Without them, we’d be in trouble,” Juri continued. “But everyone was working together (Tuesday). That was huge.

“It was a hard-fought match. Credit to Piedmont. They fought the entire time, but you know our boys did too. It’s a tough one to lose, especially being up in the first half.”

The win opened league play for Piedmont (6-3 overall).

Tuesday’s contest was the start of a four-game homestand for the Devils, who will host Berkeley on Friday at 7:30 p.m. Then, after a March 29 matchup against Bishop O’Dowd, DHS will welcome Sir Francis Drake for Break the Record Night on March 31.
