JV field hockey gets last victory in OT

By November 9, 2010


Not wanting the season to end, the Davis High junior varsity field hockey team played overtime in its final game of the season on Oct. 28. With just one minute left in the extra period, Shelby Stahl capped off a great year for the Blue Devils with goal to beat Lassen and help the locals finish at 12-7-2.


Both teams started off strong early in the game, but DHS quickly gained control, rarely letting the ball into their defensive end of the field through a scoreless first half.


After the break, the Devil offense continued to create opportunities in the circle, but could not capitalize. One shot even appeared to cross the line, but was not seen by the referees. When each team was still without a goal at the end of regulation, a 7-on-7 sudden-death overtime began.


The Blue Devils went into the final period of their season with Megan Dickson and Maddie Yeaman on defense; Rachel Paul and Lucy Hass in the midfield; and Stahl and Emily Barber playing offense.


In the overtime, Lassen put some pressure on Davis goalie Ally Weir, but she turned Grizzlies away each time. Determined to win the game in the final moments, DHS\’ Dickson took a free hit from the midfield and sent a beautiful ball to Barber, who drew the lone defender before passing to open Stahl in front of the goal. With the just goalie to beat, Stahl put a move on and tapped the ball into the back of the goal.
