The Davis High boys lacrosse team couldn’t have asked for a better start to the Sacramento Valley Conference playoffs.

The second-seeded Blue Devils routed Lincoln, 19-1, on Friday night at Brown Stadium, earning a berth in the tournament semifinals.

Friday’s contest was similar in tone to the previous meeting between the two teams, a 22-1 DHS win that was played in monsoon-like conditions. The only thing missing Friday was the rain.

“I liked how they scored a lot of goals,” Devil coach Nick Juri said of his players after the game. “They were working hard.”

The hard work paid off with 10 Davis players finding pay dirt. Hat tricks from Griffin McNamara, Liam Neville and Kian Reno led the local charge while Sam Eaton, Ryan Amesbury and Mark Bruemmer added two goals each.

Bruemmer, however, was involved in a lot more than just those two goals as he was imbued with the spirit of giving, dishing out six assists.

Blue Devils Logan Davis, Jed Arvin, Daniel Rowen and Rowan Hart all had single tallies and Hart’s goal was particularly noteworthy as Friday’s game was his first of the year.

The freshman broke his foot in the offseason, and his hard work to come back was rewarded as he subbed in to loud applause from the local crowd. The cheers only grew when Hart found the net, converting a pass from Eaton into his first goal in a DHS uniform.

“It was cool to see him back,” Juri said of Hart, whose brother — Connal — is a senior defender for the Devils. “At the beginning of the season we were really planning on him being a big contributor to the offense … (and) getting a year under his belt. It was good to see him back, and he’s getting closer to being 100 percent.”

Another youngster, Davis sophomore Jake Hammond, was his usual self on Friday, repeatedly winning face-offs and antagonizing the other team with his hard play. Hammond was especially successful at the second part of that equation, infuriating the Trojans and even inspiring some cheap shots. One such play came on a draw when a Lincoln player brought his stick cracking down on Hammond’s knee, earning a two-minute penalty.

“(Hammond) took some cheap shots; he obviously agitated them a bit,” Juri said. “He likes that, and he plays harder when that happens.”

Meanwhile, the Blue Devil defense was ironclad, repeatedly forcing turnovers and bad shots, most of which were stopped by goalie Connor Spann.

“The defense had a good game,” Juri said. “They did a good job of communicating and taking the ball away when they had to.”

Another performance like that will be key for DHS as it hosts Oak Ridge on Tuesday for a 7:30 p.m. semifinal matchup. The Devils lost a 7-5 road decision to the Trojans on April 22.
