The Davis High girls soccer team heads into their final region games on top of all the other schools in region 1, but with two must-win games, will they pull up and win or will there be two region champions this year?
After a major win against Layton last game, Davis is ready to storm into these two games and seize the region championship trophy. It was such a tight game with great opportunities for both teams, but better defense too. The game ended up going into double overtime, still scoreless, and on to penalty kicks. With weeks, even months, of practicing penalty kicks almost every single practice, the Davis High girls soccer team prevailed and made every single one of their shots. Goalkeeper Taygan Sill showed up and did more than her part, making an essential save during the shootout. Halle Lund then stepped up and put in the winning shot.
“It felt awesome. It was just a great experience to be a part of, and knowing I helped the team succeed was awesome.” (Halle Lund)
That win definitely gave the team a ton of momentum heading into the last two region games, but there’s always nerves when you have to play in big games. A lot of the girls were nervous because it’s always anyone’s game, but they had so much support from friends and family, they knew they could pull out the win.
They knew they would be heading into playoffs regardless of if they won or not, but they were unsure of which seed they’d get. It’s always nice to go into playoffs with a high seed, but the team is so grateful they could make it to the playoffs and are hopeful for the best outcome possible.
“I’m super excited and have a good feeling going into playoffs. I feel like we are going to peak at the right time.”
Says Grace Nicol, the captain the team.
With their record and the girls they have this year, it’s shaping up to be another great year to be a Dart.
