EL DORADO HILLS — The Davis High boys lacrosse team played strong defense for most of the night, but it wasn’t enough to hold off Oak Ridge.

The host Trojans scored three times in the fourth quarter to finish off a 7-4 victory, handing the Blue Devils (11-3) their first loss in five Sacramento Valley Conference games.

DHS coach Nick Juri praised Vikram Prathap, saying the goalie “kept us in the game” with several key saves.

The Devil defense — paced by Connal Hart, Sam Gellen and Liam Condon — was especially strong in the opening period, shutting down Oak Ridge. That allowed Davis to take a 1-0 lead on Sam Eaton’s goal.

The teams traded goals for the next two quarters, with the locals getting two tallies from Mark Bruemmer and one from Liam Neville on a bounce shot, and it was tied 4-4 heading into the final stanza.

That’s when the Trojans netted three quick goals to take control, and a late goal by Neville wasn’t enough for the Blue Devils to avoid the loss.

Juri said his team did not use its speed to win, and he is expecting more from his team going into the playoffs.

DHS has two more games before the league tournament, including Friday’s Senior Night outing against Casa Roble.

Before that contest, a 7:15 p.m. celebration will honor the 12 graduating Devils, most of whom have played together since eighth grade.

Sophomore right-hander Max Cordy struck out a career-high 11 in seven innings of work and Tanner Bily’s RBI single through the right side broke a 1-1 deadlock in the eighth, lifting the Aggies to a 3-1 nonconference win over St. Mary’s on Tuesday at Dobbins Stadium.

For UCD (17-20), the victory over the Gaels (13-26) snapped a four-game skid.

Cordy, a McClatchy High graduate, allowed one hit before relievers Raul Jacobson and Zach Stone came in to finish off a two-hitter. Jacobson (4-0) earned the win, stranding the go-ahead run in scoring position in the eighth, while Stone nailed down his ninth save of the year.

The freshman closer from Eureka now ranks second on the Aggies’ all-time single-season saves list.

Trailing 1-0, UCD tied things up in the bottom of the sixth. Bily drew a two-out walk to start the rally and took second on Tino Lipson’s single. Next up was Spencer Brann, who smacked the first pitch he saw into left field for an RBI single.

In the eighth, Kevin Barker was hit by a pitch to lead things off and Nick Lynch sacrificed him into scoring position. Bily followed by knocking a roller just under the glove of the St. Mary’s first baseman to bring home Barker and push his hitting streak to six games.

The Aggies added an insurance run with two outs as Brann tripled home pinch runner John Williams.

UCD returns to Big West play when it hosts a weekend series against UC Irvine starting Friday at 2:30 p.m.

UCD track & field

When Aggie Raquel Lambdin beat more than 100 runners to take first place in the 800-meter race at last week’s Mt. SAC Relays, it was enough to earn the junior a Big West Women’s Track Athlete of the Week award.

Lambdin, from Camarillo, turned in a career best 2:06.47 in the second heat of the university/open section, tops in the conference this season and No. 2 on UCD’s all-time list.
