EL DORADO HILLS — The Davis High girls lacrosse team came up just short, 10-9, in Tuesday’s regular-season finale at Oak Ridge, leaving the Blue Devils to wait and see if their campaign will continue with an at-large berth in the North Section playoffs.

DHS (9-9) concluded its Sacramento Valley Conference schedule at 7-3 to take second place in the league, and should find out Saturday if that’s good enough for the postseason.

The Devils were nearly good enough on Tuesday, battling back from an early deficit to tie the game at 8-8 with seven minutes left. They even had a chance to force another deadlock in the final seconds, but couldn’t get it done.

“Oak Ridge is a very physical team, and we were not handling that pressure well,” said Davis coach Jenn Morris. “Our attack needed to do a better job of moving the ball around, and moving off the ball, but we weren’t quite in sync (Tuesday).”

Still, the locals got four goals and an assist from junior Sarah Bloise, two tallies from freshman Nicole Pugh and single scores from Hannah Denton, Julia Zabala and Abby Meyer.

Defensively, Morris liked the way her team looked, with Anna Belenis making several huge plays and goalie Ally Weir coming up with eight clutch saves.

UCD baseball

A bases-loaded wild pitch with one out in the bottom of the 10th let the winning run score as host Nevada scored twice in the inning to rally for a 6-5 victory over the Aggies on Tuesday night at Peccole Park.

UCD (19-25) took an early lead on a sacrifice fly by Nick Lynch and a squeeze from John Williams, then regained the advantage on Lynch’s RBI single in the eighth.

The Wolf Pack (25-20) tied it with a single run in the bottom of the frame and, after a scoreless ninth inning, saw the Aggies take a 5-4 lead when Austin March’s grounder plated Adam Young in the top of the 10th.

UCD’s Tino Lipson was 3-for-4 with a run scored in the loss.

River Cats fall to Isotopes

Andy Parrino continued his torrid pace, going 2-for-4 at the dish, but his Sacramento River Cats fell to host Albuquerque, 8-4, on Tuesday at Isotopes Park.

The Cats scored in the top of the first, when Shane Peterson singled home Alden Carrithers, who led off the game with a double to left field. The lead didn’t last long, however, as the Isotopes went ahead for good in the third inning.

Carrithers finished 2-for-5 with a run, an RBI and his team’s only extra-base hit, while Peterson finished 2-for-4 and a run scored.
