Sports briefs: DHS boys lacrosse falls despite good first half

By
From page B8 | March 06, 2014 |

Piedmont’s boys lacrosse team took the lead late in the first half, then clamped down defensively after the break to hold off Davis High, 11-7, on Wednesday in the Bay Area.

But before the Highlanders took control, the Blue Devils (2-0) played them neck-and-neck in the opening half.

DHS goalie Connor Spann stopped the first two shots he saw to slow the Piedmont charge and, after the second save, the ball ended up with Devil standout Mark Bruemmer, who dodged a defender to score the game’s first goal.

After the Highlanders tallied twice, Jake Hammond won the face-off for Davis, and Bruemmer tied the contest at 2-2.

The teams traded goals again, with the locals scoring on Ryan Amesbury’s shot from 20 yards out, before Blue Devil Sam Eaton used an inside roll to get open and find the net.

Following a Piedmont goal to tie it at 4-4, DHS’ Kevin Willefert scored the most spectacular goal of the night, faking a shot from behind his back and then whipping the ball into the cage.

Unfortunately, it was the Devils’ final tally for a while as the hosts scored twice to take a 6-5 halftime lead, then outscored Davis, 5-2 after intermission.

Daniel Rowan had both second-half goals for the locals, while Spann finished with nine saves and Hammond won 13-of-15 face-offs.

Despite the loss, DHS coach Nick Juri was pleased with his team’s play in the first half, and said his team needs to learn from this game and get ready for Friday’s road matchup with Berkeley High at 7 p.m.

UCD football

The Aggie program has hired a trio of new assistant football coaches, replacing the three who followed former Cal coach Jeff Tedford to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The Enterprise has learned that Paul Creighton, late of Colorado State-Pueblo, will join Ron Gould’s staff as the new UCD tight ends coach. He replaces Ben Steele.

Former Utah offensive line mentor Dan Finn takes the same spot with the Aggies as Matt Wiegand heads to Florida.

One-time UCD wide receiver Anthony Soto comes home as the offensive quality-control coach — replacing Quinn Tedford, who is off to help his dad with his new NFL offense. Soto (Class of 2012) was the wide receivers coach at Hoover High (Fresno) last season.

Gould, who was associate head coach under Tedford at Cal, went 5-7 last fall — his first season at the Aggie helm.

Together for 11 seasons at Cal, Tedford and Gould developed 40 NFL draft picks, including running backs Marshawn Lynch (Seattle) and Shane Vareen (New England), Philadelphia wide receiver DeSean Jackson and Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers.

UCD swimming

Senior Liliana Alvarez and freshman Hilvy Cheung will carry the Aggie banner into the University of Minnesota Aquatics Center later this month as they were officially invited to compete in the NCAA Division I Swimming and Diving Championships beginning March 20.

Alvarez qualified for the NCAA finals for the fourth consecutive season, as her B standard time of 1:00.49 in the 100 breaststroke is the 33rd fastest in the field. The four-time Mountain Pacific Sports Federation champion in the event (the first swimmer in league history to do so in any event) and first-team All-MPSF selection in both the 100 and 200 breast this season posted her best NCAA finish as a freshman in 2011, when she took 23rd.

Cheung, the MPSF Freshman of the Year and a first-team all-conference honoree in both the 100 and 200 butterfly, qualified for the NCAA meet in the 200 fly with her school-record time of 1:56.14, which ranks 25th among the championship field. She also is an alternate in the 100 fly where her 53.19 — also a school record — ranks 47th.
