Blue Devils stay hot with field hockey win at Pleasant Valley

CHICO — Playing on a grass field at Pleasant Valley on Monday, the Davis High field hockey team followed up a scoreless first half with a pair of second-half goals to get a 2-0 win.

Coming off of an eight-goal outburst in beating Lassen last week, coach Sandie Marotti-Huckins said the Blue Devils (9-1-1, 7-1 Eastern Athletic Conference) looked good again Monday:

“We were on grass so that is a bit difficult for us but we played well. We took a lot of shots and controlled the ball between the circles.”

DHS finally found the net midway through the second half when junior Rachel Foley won a fight for the ball against the Vikings goalie and sent a pass out to Natalie Silver. The senior sharp-shooter then scored on a rocket shot from the edge of the circle.

Foley later doubled the Devil lead when she took a pass from senior Elizabeth Leshuk near the end line, did a 360-degree spin and fired the ball into the net.

Other strong local contributions came from Kelly Ragsdale, Andi Jackson and Emanuelle Cordier, who paced the Davis defense. Blue Devil goalie Ally Weir had two saves, including stopping a hard shot when PVHS was threatening late in the contest.

DHS fans can see more exciting plays like those when the Devils play two home games this week. After Wednesday’s 7 p.m. matchup with River Valley, Davis’ biggest rival — Chico — comes to town for a huge Friday event.

It’s always a good game when the Blue Devils and Panthers match up and, like most years, the two teams are locked in a battle for the 2013 EAL title.

DHS will wear special jerseys as part of the second annual Stick It 2 Cancer Game, with all proceeds going to that cause. In addition, Friday is Break the Record Night as the Devils are hoping to set the mark for biggest crowd ever to watch a field hockey game in Davis. The JV match begins at 5:30 p.m., with varsity set for 7 p.m.
