For Davis, four goals scored by four different players helped propel the Lady Darts to their first win of the year, beating the Lady ’Cats 4-0 Tuesday afternoon.
“Overall I was pleased,” said Davis coach Souli Phongsavath. “We didn’t have a whole lot of practices to get ready for the season, but we played well.
“I thought we were a little slow the first 5-10 minutes of the game, but it’s refreshing to kind of have these preseason games.”
Kenzie Harrison, the team’s leading goal scorer last season, kicked off her senior season by scoring the team’s first goal.
Harrison’s goal came in the 22nd minute of play, as she split two defenders and fired her shot past Lady Wildcats’ goal keeper Aubree Peterson.
Seven minutes later, Chelsea Dunn scored to give the Lady Darts a 2-0 lead at the half.
“We’re hoping to have more people on the attack in general,” said Phongsavath. “This was a pretty good game to see where we were at and it let us know that we’ll have several opportunities to score.”
Davis scored their third goal in the 70th minute when Mariah Johnson split a trio of Woods Cross defenders for the 3-0 lead.
Their final goal came from Abbey Mann one minute later.
The Darts next game will be today against Cottonwood at home.
Woods Cross will play Alta on the road today as well.
