GRANITE BAY — The Davis High girls lacrosse team had little trouble scoring in Tuesday’s Sacramento Valley Lacrosse Conference match at Granite Bay.

Unfortunately, the Grizzlies had even less.

The visiting Blue Devils never could stop GBHS, losing 20-15 to fall to 3-2 in league play and 4-6 overall.

Defensively, we did not show up, and allowed way too many easy goals,” said DHS coach Jenn Morris.

On the other end of the field, it was the usual suspects leading the way for the Devils. Freshman midfielder Nicole Pugh found the net seven times to pace Davis, while her classmate Camille Renaud and junior Sarah Bloise scored four goals apiece.

The Blue Devils’ defense, however, did not hold up its end of the deal.

“We struggled a lot on defense, leaving players wide open and not communicating,” Morris explained. “We weren’t getting good body position and it showed. It’s disappointing. A better performance could have put this team away.”

DHS is back home Thursday for its third match of the week. The contest, against Casa Roble, begins at 7 p.m.

UCD men’s golf

Ben Corfee fired a 2-under 68 while Matt Hansen and Jonny Baxter each had 72s in Tuesday’s final round of the Wyoming Cowboy Classic, to help the Aggies climb to fifth in the final standings at the Talking Stick Golf Club in Scottsdale, Ariz.

Joshua Granger, who entered the final round in second place, shot 74 and finished in a career-high 13th place at 1-under. Corfee’s round, which tied Granger for UCD’s best of the tournament, jumped the El Macero sophomore 20 positions into a tie for 22nd at 3-over.

Hansen tied for 35th at 6-over, Baxter was 14-over and tied for 72nd, and Luke Vivolo, who shot a 79 on Tuesday, tied for 88th at 17-over.

As a team, the Aggies cut two strokes from their second-round score, carding a 6-over 286 on Tuesday to finish 17 shots over par.

UCD now stays in town for a rare tournament, hosting the El Macero Classic at the local country club April 18-20.

UCD baseball

Host Stanford scored three times with two outs in the bottom of the eighth to rally back for a 7-6 win over the Aggies on Tuesday at Sunken Diamond.

UCD (14-15) left 11 runners on base in the game, but still led the Cardinal (11-14) by a 6-4 margin before the eighth.

Steven Patterson and Spencer Brann each finished with a pair of hits for the Aggies, who came back from a deficit of their own by scoring five unanswered runs in the middle innings.

John Williams’ RBI got UCD its first run, then two more came home on Nick Lynch’s fourth-inning double. Adam Young later worked a bases-loaded walk to tie the score at 4-4 in the fifth.

Seth Batty drove in Bann in the sixth, then an error by Stanford gave the Aggies their final run in the seventh inning.

UCD comes home for a three-game series against Long Beach State, starting with a Friday (2:30 p.m.) contest.

UCD women’s tennis

The Aggies’ Big West home finale went their way on Tuesday, as UCD took down Cal State Northridge, 5-2, at the Marya Welch Tennis Center.

With the win, UCD (12-7, 4-3) moved into fourth place in the conference standings, a half-match behind its Saturday opponent — Hawaii.

Following Tiffany Pham and Samantha Martino’s 8-2 victory over Lorraine Cheung and Scout Shutter at No. 3, Megan Heneghan and Melissa Kobayakawa, competing at No. 2, extended their doubles win streak to 13 to give the Aggies the doubles point.

The Matadors, however, won the first two singles matches to take a 2-1 lead before UCD captured the next four contests to finish the victory.

Those wins came from Megan Heneghan, whose opponent at No. 1 retired, Kamila Kecki, Layla Sanders and Nicole Koehly.

Former Devil earns award

Former Davis High standout Derek Nelson, a senior track and field athlete at North Central College, was named the College Conference of Illinois & Wisconsin Athlete of the Week on Tuesday.

The award comes after Nelson won the javelin throw at Saturday’s Wheaton College Invitational with a personal-best distance of 172 feet, 5 inches that currently ranks first in the CCIW. He also placed second in the 400-meter hurdles (54.81) and helped his Division III school in Naperville, Ill., finish second in the 4×400 relay (3:23.22).

Alliance soccer

The Davis Alliance U14 girls soccer team is looking for select-level players interested in joining the team for the spring season and beyond.

The Copper-level squad invites players to come to training sessions on Monday and Wednesday from 5:30 to 7 p.m. at Walnut Fields, on Lillard Drive near Cowell Blvd.
