CHICO — The Davis High field hockey players and coaches wanted this one so bad they could taste it.

And when it was over, the 2-0 Eastern Athletic League victory at Chico tasted terrific.

Rachel Foley scored both goals for the Blue Devils (13-2-2, 10-2), who handed the first-place Panthers their first EAL loss of the season.

Now, DHS is hoping Chico will drop one of its final two league matches to set up a tie atop the EAL standings. The Devils are the reigning conference champions, while the Panthers won the crown in 2011.

But Monday’s outing was more about getting revenge for Chico’s 2-1 victory at Davis on Oct. 6.

Coach Sandie Marotti-Huckins said the Blue Devils played well in that game, but were dynamic from start to finish in winning the rematch:

“It was a really well-played game. They knew what they needed to do and they came out and did it. It feels really good.”

The locals set the tone in the first 12 minutes when they needed just three passes to get the ball down the field and senior Sara Pinto set up Foley for what Marotti-Huckins called “an amazing goal.”

At approximately the same point in the second half, senior midfielder Kelly Ragsdale — who with classmate Natalie Silver controlled the middle all afternoon — dribbled the ball nearly 50 yards up the field to set up Foley’s second tally.

The junior’s two goals were more than enough for a DHS defense that held the Panthers scoreless.

“Our defense was outstanding (Monday). Ally Weir had another epic game (in goal),” Marotti-Huckins said. “All of our defenders were just so calm.”

Seniors Emanuelle Cordier, Chelsey Nickell and Liz Leshuk paced the dominating Devil defense.

Next up for Davis is a nonconference match with Berkeley on Wednesday (5 p.m.) at Brown Stadium. It is the final regular-season home game for the Blue Devils, who will travel to Lassen next Monday, then host the year-end EAL tournament on Oct. 25-26.
