On Wednesday, the Darts opened up the regular season with a Region 1 battle, and promptly took down the Northridge Knights 3-0 behind John Taylor’s goal and assist for the Darts.
Davis initially began its run in the first half, when the goal keeper Mitch Jensen was stopping shots from all angles.
Davis’ defense also had a good half, taking balls away from the Knights as they attempted to go down field.
On the other end, the Darts scored a single goal before the half ended, taking a 1-0 lead after the first half.
The Darts continued to play good defense in the second half, holding Northridge scoreless despite the Knights efforts to cut into their deficit.
The Darts still had an answer for all of the Knights’ attacks, however, and responded by scoring two more goals in the second half to complete the team’s initial win of the new season.
For Davis, Taylor scored a goal and picked up an assist, with Derrick Farnes and Mitch Parkinson each adding a goal in the win.
Jensen performed well for the Darts as their goal keeper, stopping all of the Knights shots for his initial shut out in the opening game.
The Darts will take on the Roy Royals Tuesday at home.
