For the Davis High boys lacrosse team, beating rival Granite Bay is always sweet. And doing it when the teams are tied at 2-0 at the top of the Sacramento Valley League — as the Blue Devils did Tuesday on the road  — is even sweeter.

Behind a stellar game from goalie Will McPherson, DHS topped the Grizzlies, 7-3, improving to 3-0 and moving into first place alone.

“Will was a stone wall in goal,” Devil coach Nick Juri said of his keeper’s 13-save performance. “He should be a shoo-in for (first team all-league).

“This is where we want to be in the league, undefeated halfway through.”

McPherson’s heroics started right away as he made a pair of nice stops early in the first period. Later, Ryan Amesbury got Davis on the scoreboard using a running shot with 6:54 left.

A late GBHS goal tied things at 1-1 heading into the second quarter, but that’s when the Blue Devil offense exploded.

Daniel Rowen gave DHS a lead it would not give back with less than a minute into the period and Willie Hawkins made it 3-1 when he wrapped around the goal for a tally.

Devil standout Mikie Schlosser followed with the first of his three goals — a nice one that saw him fake left and fire a bullet right — and a strong defensive play by the Davis combination of Rowen and Rudy Buhlman led to Kian Reno taking it coast-to-coast. The goal by Reno, who also won 7-of-9 face-offs, made it 5-1 at the half.

After the break, more strong goalie work from McPherson and Schlosser final two tallies completed the victory for DHS, which heads to Campolindo next for a Friday night showdown.

DHS boys volleyball

Having taken the previous 11 days off from competition, the Davis High boys volleyball team celebrated its return to the court with a strong performance in sweeping Laguna Creek on Tuesday at The Cage.

The Blue Devils dominated the first two games, 25-9, 25-10, then captured the third set 25-18 to complete the Delta Valley Conference victory.

A workmanlike win was just what DHS needed with a conference matchup at powerful Monterey Trail looming on Thursday (5 p.m.).

“The goal (Tuesday) was to maintain the intensity throughout the match and we did that,” said Devil coach Julie Crawford. “(Thursday) will be a competitive match and we’ll have to rise to the occasion. Those are the kind of games we prepare the kids for.”

Against the Cardinals, Davis served well and got strong outings from Andre Foster and Jake deVarennes.

“Andre Foster was really aggressive at the net. He had some kills and worked hard the whole match no matter the score,” Crawford said. “Jake deVarennes got a lot of playing time and was effective at the net.”

UCD baseball

The Aggies slugged three home runs on Tuesday, including a three-run shot by third baseman Paul Politi in the eighth, and the Aggies beat St. Mary’s, 16-15, in a windy, wild nonconference game at Dobbins Stadium.

UCD (11-19) snapped a seven-game losing streak by battling back from a 9-4 third-inning deficit and a 14-10 hole in the eighth.

“Even though we got down early, our guys kept playing hard and kept working for quality at-bats,” said Aggie head coach Matt Vaughn. “Despite numerous mistakes, we stuck in there. You know going into a windy day like (Tuesday), it’s going to get ugly. Basically five fly outs went out of the park (Tuesday). But we traded runs back and forth all game and it’s good to get a win out of that.”

The locals entered the game with three total home runs in 2013, but with the wind howling from right to left, they matched that total against the Gaels (11-22). St. Mary’s also hit two homers to left.

UCD freshman reliever Zach Williams (1-1) picked up his first career win by getting the final two outs of the top of the eighth. Redshirt freshman Max Cordy tallied his fourth save of the season, setting the Gaels down in the ninth inning with just one run allowed.

The Aggies scored six runs in the bottom of the eight to capture the lead for good.

John Williams went 4-for-6 at the plate, including a three-run homer in the sixth inning, with a career-high six RBIs and three runs scored for UCD, which will head to Long Beach State for a three-game series beginning Friday at 6 p.m.

An informational meeting for the fall 2013 season of Blue Devil girls golf is set for Thursday, April 18, at 7 p.m. in Room N8 on the DHS campus. Interested players and their parents are invited to attend. For more information, contact coach Rhonda Mohr at [email protected]
