Though the Davis High field hockey team dropped a 2-0 home contest to Archbishop Mitty on Saturday morning, coach Sandie Marotti-Huckins was happy with the performance.

The powerful Monarchs scored both of their goals off corners and, according to Marotti-Huckins, the Blue Devil offense played well despite not converting any chances.

“They weren’t able to score a goal from (regular field play) because our defense played really well,” the DHS coach said. “Ally Weir played a great game in goal, Chelsey Nickell made a great diving save in front of the goal, our defense was just outstanding.

“We really did a good job. Mitty is usually a top-four team in their section and we held our own, especially on defense.”

The Devil offense nearly broke through several times and amped up the pressure even more in the final 10 minutes after moving senior standout Natalie Silver up from the center. She and junior scorer Rachel Foley combined to put several shots on the Monarch goal but none found the back of the cage.

After playing well on both ends of the field against a tough opponent, the locals feel ready for their biggest game of the season — a rematch with Chico on the road Monday.

The Panthers edged Davis, 2-1, early this month at Brown Stadium. For all intents and purposes, a Chico win Monday would give them the Eastern Athletic League championship, stealing it from the Blue Devils (12-2-2, 9-2 EAL).

“We are fired up to go beat Chico,” Marotti-Huckins said.
