For the first half of Friday night’s Sacramento Valley Lacrosse League match at Brown Stadium, playing without injured standout Sarah Bloise had the Davis High girls out of synch.

But something clicked early in the second half and the Blue Devils battled back to force overtime. Granite Bay, however, got a goal with six seconds remaining to edge DHS, 12-11.

Still, it was a strong second-half performance by a Devil squad that had been down 8-3. Bloise was hurt in Davis’ win over St. Francis on Thursday.

“I  am so proud of how hard we fought to get back in this game,” Blue Devil coach Jenn Morris said after her team fell to 2-4 overall and 1-1 in SVLL play. “Playing back-to-back games and missing key players is always a challenge, and when it’s against two big league opponents, that really puts the pressure on.

“But we showed that we would not go down without a fight. The next step will be to figure out how to close out these games.

“We’ll see both of these teams again, and you can be sure we’ll be better next time around.”

Without Bloise, DHS looked to a couple of freshman for scoring and Camille Renaud and Nicole Pugh both came up big.

Renaud led the way with six goals, the last one coming on a penalty shot that tied the game with 35 seconds left in regulation.

“Camille found her shot (Friday), and she did everything she could to help her team all over the field,” Morris said. “With only two subs available, we asked a lot from the midfield duo, who only got minimal breaks. They were both outstanding.”

Pugh added four goals and her six draw controls helped the Devil comeback.

The other key to Davis’ rally was the play of senior goalie Ally Weir, who finished with 10 saves on the night including a couple on second-half penalty shots.

Weir was aided by strong performances from local defenders Anna Belenis, and Liz Leshuk, while Ellie Meinhert scored a goal and assists came from Lydia Gegan and Emmanuelle Cordier.

The Blue Devils are back in action Tuesday when they travel to play at Bella Vista.
