The Davis High Soccer team faced the Syracuse Titans on Monday night for Davis’s senior night.
The game was a huge success, ending in a win for the Darts with a score of 2-1.
This was a big game for both Davis and Syracuse because whoever won would secure 2nd place in our region.
Because it was senior night, we recognized our four senior players Simon Jenson, Wyatt Sanders, Stephen Seelos, and Jacob Veater.
A junior at Davis High, Jerick Sparrow, scored both the goals for Davis.
The highlight of the game was during the second half. Syracuse scored, tying up the score to 1-1 and in the very next play, Davis scored. It wasn’t even ten seconds after Syracuse’s score!
“When Jerick scored that second goal for us, it was so exciting and we all ran up to celebrate our soon to be victory.” says Talon Meyer, a sophomore on the team.
There were lots of fans who came to support the team and that really motivated the players to do their absolute best.
“We had a bigger crowd that really hyped us up and got us ready for the win. People posted on social media and it was super fun to have so many people there supporting us.” says Meyer.
There were a lot of soccer players from other teams in the crowd who were waiting with anticipation to see who would win the intense game.
As the team is heading into the playoffs it’s important for Davis students to support our team more than ever before.
The energy was high and after our victory everyone ran down to congratulate the team on their spectacular win.
“The game was perfect, this was the win we needed” says Meyer.
This win was the perfect step to push the team into playoffs, now as the 2nd place team in our region.
