The girls that showed up to Saturday’s match against North Salinas were the ones that Davis High field hockey coach Sandie Marotti-Huckins remembers.

They were the Blue Devils who had won more than 25 consecutive regular-season showdowns, and decided to appear once more for a 2-0 victory over the Vikings at Brown Stadium.

It wasn’t the same DHS squad that played at Corning High on Tuesday (a match that resulted in a 2-1 defeat and a broken win streak).

“But we bounced back after that loss, and came out here (Saturday) positive,” Marotti-Huckins said. “They put it behind them and worked hard on the field.”

The Devils exemplified that effort by going on the attack early and often. Most the game was played on their terms, with the opposing goalie having to fend off five shots on goal in the first half.

One of the few times Davis goalie Ally Weir saw action was at 12:55, when she had to kick away a shot from a Salinas attacker. The remainder of the period had both teams vying for control, with neither fully taking it — nor scoring by halftime.

But that quickly changed, as the Blue Devils held exclusive rights to possession of the ball in the second period. Sophomore Whitney Sacramento was first the score, a tally that came at the 35-minute mark off an assist from junior Rachel Foley.

Foley was on the other end of a scoring play just five minutes later. Senior Jade Bugsch carved out an opening in the Vikings’ defense and then passed it to Foley, who took the opportune shot to make it a 2-0 game.

Another DHS sophomore Hannah Denton, worked with veteran midfielders like Kelly Ragsdale to garrison the entry to the opposite end of the field. They also stormed the North Salinas net on several occasions.

Seniors Elizabeth Leshuk and Emmanuelle Cordier assisted in keeping the ball in the attack zone, which allowed the Devils to fire seven shots on goal during the latter half of the match.

“We had more attack (Saturday),” Marotti-Huckins said. “We’ve been working on playing more offensively, instead of staying back on defense. Our midfielders did a good job of pushing up to help with the attack.”

As the match came to a close, senior Amy Reid, a recent transfer, made her DHS debut and led the charge on a couple of attempts to score. But the Viking defenders didn’t cave in, and the rest of the game was quiet.

Still, the Blue Devils left satisfied with a victory. The local girls plan on taking the momentum into their next regular-season encounter, a home game against Bella Vista on Monday at 7 p.m.

“We’re going to build on (Saturday’s) game going into the match,” Marotti-Huckins said. “We’re going to go out there and control the pace of the game.”
