Davis – Boys
Davis defeated Northridge 17-11 April 20.
“We had streaks where we played really great, but it was a good hard-fought game by both teams,” head coach Dillon Yocom said, noting the tough defense by Emerson Bell with his four caused turnovers. “We also had really strong showings from Rhett Rice, Connor Johnson and Emmett Rice.”
Mason Gagner led the Darts with four goals while Johnson (three goals, three assists), Rhett Rice (three goals, one assist), Blake Williams (two goals, one assist) Emmett Rice (one goal, three assists), David Spjut (one goal, two assists), Mason Kilgore (one goal), Nick Johnson (one goal), Sam Lifferth (one goal) also contributed offensively.
Against Weber April 22, Davis won 19-15.
“We had multiple starters out with injury and had another player get his wrist broken which made it a tough game, but our guys fought through the adversity,” Yocom said.
Rhett Rice scored six goals to lead the Darts with Williams and Kilgore recording four and three goals, respectively. Davis is now 10-1 this season.
Davis – Girls
Davis defeated Northridge 24-2 April 20.
“Our team came out swinging today and really did well on all of the fundamentals,” head coach Makenzie Hekking said. “It was a really good team win.”
Samantha Wilkes led the Darts with nine goals and two assists while Piper Searle (six goals, one assist), Macie Wood (four goals), Ava Bair (two goals), Kelly Maynes (two goals, one assist), Mackenzie Coleman (one goal, one assist), Emma Williams (one assist), Kaydence Johnson (one assist) and Tallulah Raser (one assist) also provided offense in the big win.
Against Weber April 22, Davis won 17-2, building a 10-2 lead at halftime into a 15-goal win.
“I’m very pleased with how my girls played,” Hekking said. “Our girls finally listened to what the coaches were telling them to do and what plays to run and it was a thing of beauty to watch their execution. We ran plays and motion offense and were rewarded with wide open shots throughout the game.”
Hekking credited Johnson with a “standout game” of four goals that made her the player of the game. “It was nice to finally see her true potential showing on the field,” Hekking said. “She was critical in re-defending and riding to get the ball back when we turned it over on our offensive zone.”
The Darts came together at halftime to discuss “non-call” frustrations that boiled over in the first half, resulting in an unsportsmanlike yellow card on the coaches, and adjusted to how the refs were calling the game and playing their game as a unit. “That is not something that is easily done, but our girls made the adjustment and got fewer fouls called and no more cards in the second half.”
Wilkes again was tops for the Darts with six goals and two assists. Also helping offensively were Searle (three goals, one assist), Wood (three goals), Maynes (one goal, one assist), Bair (one goal), Williams (two assists) and Coleman (one assist). Davis remained undefeated through 10 games.
