Sports briefs: Redwood edges Blue Devils in girls lacrosse

From page B8 | April 24, 2014 |

Coming off of a pair of easy wins, the Davis High girls lacrosse team took a bit of time to get used to the elevated level of play on Wednesday at Redwood.

The Giants took advantage, taking an early lead and then holding off the charging Blue Devils in the second half for a 12-11 win.

Down 7-4 at the break, DHS (6-7) actually tied things up with just under two minutes to play before Redwood scored the game-winner.

“All in all, we didn’t quite have the intensity we needed to finish out this game,” said Devil coach Jenn Morris. “We were struggling with draw controls all night, and it made possession really difficult.”

With the Giants possessing the ball for a lot of the night, Morris praised her defense for keeping the contest close.

“Sophomore Anna Belenis had a great night on defense, coming up with big plays to create some turnovers,” said the veteran coach. “And, in the second half, goalkeeper Ally Weir stepped up and really made some key stops.

Freshman Nicole Pugh led the Davis attack with four goals, and had some key late draw controls to help stage the comeback. Another ninth-grader, Camille Renaud, added a hat trick and sophomore Hannah Denton tallied twice.

Single goals came from sophomore Sarah Sherwin and freshman Darby Maguire, as all of the Blue Devil scoring came from ninth- and 10th-graders.

DHS swimming

Though both Blue Devil teams suffered narrow losses on Wednesday at Rio Americano, the points each squad put up — without some of the top swimmers racing in their best events — showed off DHS’ depth.

The Devil girls lost to the Raiders, 97-88, while the Davis boys fell 97-86.

“While both varsity teams lost tight contests, we had a great opportunity to compete against a strong program,” said Blue Devil coach Tracy Stapleton. “This was our last dual meet of the season and I wanted to give our swimmers another opportunity to get section cuts in their events or to try different events.”

Alex LaFreniere had a huge day for the local girls. The senior touched first in both the 50 freestyle (25.86) and the 100 free (57.51), where she edged teammate Nikki Adkins, a freshman, who got a victory in the 100 backstroke (1:03.88).

The other DHS girls swimmer to earn an individual win was Juliana Chan, who sped past the field in the 100 breaststroke in 1:09.97.

For the Devil boys, Owen Yancher’s 2:09.92 was enough to touch the wall first in the 200 individual medley, while Garrett Fisk captured the 50 free in 23.06.
