Davis used some great all-around play to subdue the pesky Warriors. Seven Darts scored at least five points in the victory and were led by Allison Blake's 13 and Jesse Stokes' 10. Weber had three of their own score in double figures, Emily Mueller (10), Kelsey Sparkman (13) and Amie Jensen (13), but those accounted for 36 of the team's total 47 points.
What makes Davis so tough is their depth. The Darts have a different player who seems to step it up offensively in every game. That makes it tough for opponents to game plan the Darts.
"We do have a very deep team and I think that's our biggest strength," Head Coach Amy Wright said. "Allie (Blake) played great down low tonight.
She seems to be able to bend her way through the paint any way she wants. She's going to be a really good player."
The game wasn't always the Darts running away though. Weber is a good team and they scraped and clawed their way back into it in the second and third quarters.
After the first quarter Davis held a comfortable 22-6 lead, but Weber came roaring back in the second behind some good pressure defense and Mueller. A Kelsey Sparkman lay-in with 2:15 remaining in the quarter got the Warriors to within 31-23 forcing a Dart time out to regroup. Davis did make some adjustments and the Darts went into halftime with a 37-25 advantage.
The third quarter was also competitive between the two teams but Weber couldn't get much closer than 12 points. Davis held the Warriors at bay even though Jensen started to bomb away from three-point land.
"We got away from our full-court press a little and thought we might need to get back to that in the third if the game got any closer," Wright continued. "But, the lead never got below 10 and the girl's just did a good job of increasing the lead and staying calm the rest of the way."
Staying calm comes a little easier when on any given night five or six players can dominate a game and lead a team to victory. Dani Hosking still leads Davis in scoring at 15.7 points per game, but there's Jessica Wilde (9.57), Blake (8.0), Stokes (6.3) and Janica Johnson (5.6) who have all had big games so far this season that led to Dart victories.
Davis improved their league record to 5-0 with the win while Weber fell to 3-3 in Region 1 and 7-8 overall. Weber is now technically in third place behind Fremont, Clearfield and Layton, who are all tied for second place at 3-2.
Davis will try and stay perfect in conference play today when they host one-win Viewmont at 5:30.
