Bam! Field hockey mark falls

Senior Day. The last game for a longtime member of the field hockey program. The single-season scoring record broken. And the league championship won for the third year in a row.

As Michael Scott of TVÕs ÒThe OfficeÓ said: ÒThe only thing that could make this day better is ice cream.Ó

As coach Katy Loge ended her ninth Ñ and final Ñ regular season as a Davis High field hockey coach, her team send her into the playoffs with a 3-0 win over Lassen High at Susan Beaton Field on Thursday.

The Blue Devils finished at 12-2 to tie Chico High for the Eastern Athletic Conference title.

At the last home game, Davis traditionally says goodbye to its seniors. Thursday was no exception.

Before the game, the sophomores announced that the DHS starters would be seniors Emily Brown, Sarah Riesenberg, Monica Quinn, Ashley Pugh, Lauren Holtz, Emily Iskin, Maxine Chu, Amy Ragsdale, Sarah Finley and Katherine Eadie Ñ who was making her first start after sitting out the entire season with a torn ACL.

The seniors were cheered on by a supportive junior varsity squad that had just won an overtime thriller (thanks to a goal by Shelby Stahl).

After the introductions, JV players swarmed the seniors with hugs, baked goods and cardboard signs, designed to cheer them on.

RagsdaleÕs sister, Kelly, an energetic midfielder on the JV team, provided an early Halloween surprise by dressing up as a Blue Devil.

Despite being stifled early by Lassen, DavisÕ offense played like a dormant volcano Ñ bubbling over, warning of its eruption, knowing that the schoolÕs season-goal record was at hand.

Once the Devils were able to stretch the field a little bit, they emerged as the dominant team.

After eight minutes of play, Brown maneuvered through the GrizzliesÕ defense and flicked a passed to Riesenberg, who sent the ball screaming into the goal to put DHS up 1-0. Pugh anchored the midfield by intercepting Lassen passes and shot them back up the field with authority.

Sophomore Ali Campos came in once the seniors had showed their mettle, and midway through the first half she knocked the ball across the goal line for DHSÕ second goal of the night.

It marked DavisÕ 76th goal of the year, tying a the standard set by the 1993 team, back when Loge played for the Devils.

The crowd anxiously awaited the record-breaking goal, but Lassen kept Davis at bay for the next 33 minutes.

Just when it looked like the team might have to settle for a share of the record, Riesenberg erased any doubts when she found Campos for another goal with 12 minutes to go.

The sideline exploded in jubilation.

After the game, Loge was overcome with emotion due to Òall these things happening, (like) having 10 seniors all play together in the end. Today has been the best part of the season.Ó

While she is definitely going to miss coaching, Loge is looking forward to spending more time with her two children, who are now both in school.

ÒThis team showed a tremendous amount of dedication. They are truly the epitome of a Blue Devil field hockey team,Ó said Loge, who had every player meet the team goal of an eight-minute mile for the first time this year.

Loge made it clear that she tried to teach the girls the value of hard work, saying that having her players Òknow that they can accomplish anything they set their minds to, thatÕs been the most rewarding (part of coaching).Ó

Notes: This game had been rescheduled several times before Lassen could OK the trip south for Thursday. …On Sept. 28, Davis made the almost four-hour bus trip to Susanville and won handily, 7-1. The game avenged a preseason loss to Lassen. In that 7-1 win, Campos had her coming-out party with three goals and two assists. It also marked the emotional return of Riesenberg, who scored her first goal of 2010 after sitting out earlier games with an injury.
