DHS stays hot with a home win

By
September 30, 2010 |

Another game, another win for the Davis High field hockey team.

On Wednesday at Susan Beaton Field, the victim was Pleasant Valley, and the Blue Devils remained undefeated in Eastern Athletic League play with a 5-1 win.

After a bumpy start that saw DHS back on its heels as a strong Viking squad put the pressure on early, the Devils took a timeout and regrouped. When the Davis players broke the huddle, they took control of the game and never looked back.

Blue Devil senior Ashley Pugh started the scoring 10 minutes into the match on a solid short corner play. A few minutes later, defender Lauren Holtz carried the ball up the endline and sent a perfect cross to a wide-open Ali Campos, who made it 2-0.

Shortly before halftime, Kayla Robinson was able to tip the ball past the keeper off a diving pass from Kylie Drexel.

Once the second half started, Pleasant Valley finally got on the scoreboard and again had DHS reeling. For a stretch, the Devils couldnÕt manage to get a good clear out of the circle, giving PV several shots on goal.

But as it had in the first half, Davis quickly righted the ship. Campos took the keeper one-on-one and found the back of the cage with five minutes remaining and, just before the end of the game, Jennifer Gold scored the final goal in when she tipped the ball in behind the keeper on the left post.

Once again, midfielder Emily Brown ran the offense for the Blue Devils, who travel to Chico today for another EAL match.
