The Davis High women’s lacrosse team just fell short of victory against Amador Valley in a close game on March 20.
Amador made a quick goal, but DHS was quick to follow, with junior Chloe Meyer scoring the Devils’ first point.
By halftime, the teams were neck and neck, with three points each.
After a quick team meeting and cheer, the Devils’ rushed into the second period with renewed energy.
Junior Alex Agnew was a standout player, scoring half of the team’s points.
Agnew, who has committed to play lacrosse at UC Davis, says the team’s strategy is to simply “play hard” and “do what we always do.”
A victory was just in reach for the team, with senior Helena Leal scoring a goal with 45 seconds left on the clock. The Devils’ momentum was building, but it proved to be just a little too late when they lost possession of the ball. The Blue Devils lost 6-7.
The team is still adjusting to its new configuration, after 10 seniors on the team graduated last year.
“It’s a completely new team,” coach Jenn Morris said. “They had been together for so long that now it’s like restarting all over.”
Morris stated that with time, the team will adjust.
“You have a lot of people that played with that group who are trying to figure out their role now. That takes time, and that’s what I see evolving. [We are] getting closer each game, we just need a few more pieces to fall in place,” Morris said.
