With her team facing St. Ignatius on Friday, University High on Saturday and Yuba City on Monday, Davis High field hockey coach Sandie Marotti-Huckins said the Blue Devils played to the competition each time.

The formula worked in each case as DHS played its best game of the season in tying powerful St. Ignatius (0-0), braved the elements to edge University (1-0), then managed a 4-0 road win over the Honkers despite not functioning at top capacity.

Even with the scoreless result, Marotti-Huckins was thrilled with the Devils’ performance on Friday:

“We played very well. They are probably the toughest opponent we’ve seen and they matched us not just talentwise but also with their conditioning. We controlled most of the game, we just couldn’t put any of our shots away.”

After the deadlock, which Marotti-Huckins said featured a total team effort, Davis played University in rain that at one point made it impossible to see across the field. The two squads mucked around for most of the contest — the coach said her girls had a blast — before local junior Rachel Foley finally scored the game’s only goal with less than four minutes left.

Marotti-Huckins also praised the play of Lyla Godfryd, another junior, who started at left back in the place of a sick teammate and was brilliant.

“She was the standout of the game,” Marotti-Huckins added.

The coach was less thrilled with her team’s performance on Monday against a Yuba City squad that is the Eastern Athletic League’s weakest.

Foley scored a first-half goal — off Hannah Denton’s assist — and the score stayed at 1-0 until 11 minutes remained. In that final stretch, Blue Devil senior Natalie Silver assisted on three more tallies, one each to Kelly Ragsdale, Denton and Foley, to complete the scoring.

DHS is next in action on Wednesday when Lassen comes to Brown Stadium for a 4 p.m. contest.
