Goals went back and forth for nearly the entire game on Tuesday when the Davis High girls lacrosse team played at Piedmont. But in the final moments, Blue Devils goalie Briki Cajandig broke the pattern.
After Kiki Tanaka scored off an assist from Lauren Black to put DHS ahead 8-7, Cajandig stopped two shots in the final moments to preserve the Devil victory.
Both players earned praise from DHS coach Jenn Morris after the game, as did Kylie Drexel for “controlling the Davis attack.”
Down by two early, the Blue Devils tied the game on two goals from Mari Cajandig, both off assists from Laurel Darragh. Blackwell then put DHS ahead by sending home a rebound off a Mari Cajandig shot.
When Piedmont put in a pair of goals before halftime, Drexel countered with two of her own, one assisted by Kelly Chuck, to keep the contest even at intermission.
Second-half goals by Tanaka and Mari Cajandig set up the late heriocs.
Simone Aldredge and Brynne Satre were standouts on defense, while Erin Chavanne, Shauna Simon and Kelsey Ewing had key takeaways for the Devils, who play next on friday at Berkeley.
