After an early run by host Lincoln on Tuesday, the Blue Devils showed why they came into the game undefeated in Sacramento Valley Lacrosse League play.

DHS scored twice in the final 16 seconds of the first half, then took the lead with two more goals in the opening minute of the third period and never looked back. With the 14-7 victory, the Devils finished the regular season at 16-3 and completed an amazing 12-0 run through the SVLL.

As it has all season, Davis used its offense that attacks opponents from all angles, relied on a strong defense that was anchored by goalie Will McPherson (12 saves) and leaned on Kian Reno, who dominated on face-offs to give the locals possessions.

“I can’t say enough about Kian,” Blue Devil coach Nick Juri said of the junior, who won 14 of 18 draws on Tuesday. “He should always have the spotlight on him.”

But early on, the spotlight was on Lincoln, which answered Willie Hawkins’ initial tally with five straight to take a four-goal lead midway through the second period.

After that flurry, the DHS defense — paced by Rudy Buhlman, Kelby Spore and Sam Gellen, along with McPherson — allowed just two more goals over the final 30 minutes of game time.

With its defense clamping down, the Devil offense took off as Sam Eaton scored two of his three goals in the second period to cut the Trojan advantage to 5-3. Even though the second of those goals came with just 16 ticks left in the first half, Davis wasn’t done.

Reno’s eighth face-off win of the second half set the stage for Mark Bruemmer to assist Hawkins for a goal just 13 seconds later and the locals trailed just 5-4 at the break.

Seven seconds into the second half, Reno captured the draw then went right in to score the Blue Devils’ third goal in the span of 0:23 of game time, tying the contest at 5-5.

Less than 50 ticks later, Mikie Schlosser assisted Bruemmer, who gave DHS the lead for good at 6-5.

For the rest of the game, the Devils padded their lead with tallies from Bruemmer, Kevin Klenzendorf, Logan Davis (from 50 yards out), freshman Jake Hammond, Eaton, Schlosser and long-stick Connal Hart, who ran in from the middle of the field to score his first goal of the season.

According to Juri, Davis will find out its seeding for the North Coast Section playoffs this weekend.

DHS girls lacrosse

It was a tough 13-10 loss for the Blue Devils on Tuesday at Brown Stadium, but there were things to be encouraged by with postseason play coming up later this month.

A fast and physical Cal High squad took a 5-2 first-half lead, but once DHS regrouped, the two squads played even the rest of the way.

Coach Jenn Morris said the experience may turn out to be a good one for the Devils, who end the regular season with a Senior Night matchup against St. Ignatius on Friday at 6 p.m.

“We have a few things to fix to get ready for Friday night,” Morris told The Enterprise. “We can definitely rebound from this, and this was playoff-caliber competition … so hopefully this prepares us for the next level.

“We had a few runs that made it close, but we never quite got control of the game.”

Kiki Tanaka paced Davis with a hat trick and one assist, while Kylie Drexel scored twice and added three helpers. Two goals apiece from Lani Chang (one assist) and Kelly Chuck, and a single tally from Sarah Bloise rounded out the local scoring.

On defense, Morris had high praise for freshman Anna Belenis, who “came up with some huge turnovers at key times and was playing with confidence.”

Junior Liz Leshuk and senior Bailey Gary also shined for the Blue Devil defense.

UCD baseball

Sacramento State scored all of its runs in a big eighth inning and, despite a very strong start by Aggie freshman left-hander Spencer Henderson, UCD lost, 4-3, to rival Sacramento State on Tuesday afternoon at Dobbins Stadium.

With the result, the Hornets (30-19) completed a three-game sweep of the Aggies (16-30) in a series that was sprinkled throughout the season.

In his second start of the year, Henderson allowed just two runs on seven hits in seven innings with no walks and three strikeouts, while UCD outfielder Austin March had a game-high three hits and an RBI. Third baseman Paul Politi and catcher Cameron Olson also drove in runs as the Aggies posted single tallies in the second, fifth and sixth innings.

But Sacramento State first baseman Chris Lewis hit a two-run double as part of a four-run eighth inning as the Hornets erased a 3-0 deficit.

UCD will be on the road this weekend for a three-game Big West series at Pacific. First pitch of Game 1 is set for Friday at 6 p.m.

UCD women’s lacrosse

Aggie attacker Elizabeth Datino was selected Tuesday to the All-West/Midwest Region second team by the Intercollegiate Women’s Lacrosse Coaches Association.

Datino, from Littleton, Colo., also made the second team in 2012 and is the only player in the program Division I era to win IWLCA all-region honors.

The senior paced UCD with 46 goals, 66 total points and a .568 shooting average this spring, ranking 15th in the country in points per game (4.33). Datino led the nation in that category last season.

City softball sign-ups

The city of Davis is taking registration for its summer softball leagues. Signups are first-come, first-served, and will close Friday, May 17, or earlier if the leagues fill.

League play begins Monday, June 17.  Fees for the nine-game season are $510 for men’s teams and $475 for coed teams. New teams also must pay a $20 fee for ASA registration.

For league nights and more information, contact Lori Conrad at 530-753-7731 or lconrad@cityofdavis.org. Information is also available in the city’s summer recreation schedule.

DHS football camp

Recently retired UC Davis football coach Bob Biggs will be a featured instructor at this year’s Top Gun/Line Tuff non-contact camp set for Saturday at Ron & Mary Brown Stadium at Davis High.

Local youngsters ages 10 to 15 can learn football from DHS head coach Steve Smyte and his Blue Devil varsity coaching staff as the teaching will emphasize skill development and positions techniques. Smyte promises “a fun atmosphere.”

Registration begins at 9 a.m. and camp runs from 9:30 to 11:55 a.m.

Cost is $25. The first 10 players to register the day of the clinic will receive T-shirts.

Registration forms can either be picked up at Holmes, Emerson and Harper junior highs or through the Junior Blue Devil program or by sending an email to dhsfootballbackers@gmail.com.

Yolo Post 77
The Yolo Post 77 American Legion baseball team will hold tryouts at 5 p.m. on Saturday, May 18, and Sunday, May 19, at Clark Field in Woodland. Players born on or after Jan. 1, 1994, are eligible to compete.

Those players who are still competing in the high school playoffs should try to attend at least one of the two days to sign up, but will not be required to try out until their prep season is complete.

For more information, contact head coach Matt Castles at 530-304-4885 or general manager Frank Eakle at 530-666-3797. Information also is available at www.eteamz.com/yolopost77.
