The season opener was everything that Davie varsity soccer coach Nathan Stephens hoped for. Davie dismantled visiting Lexington 7-0 in a nonconference game on March 17.

“All in all, a good game to start the season,” the third-year coach said. “We learned a lot about who we are and can be – things we did well and where we need to improve.”

The War Eagles needed a good start after going 0-5-1 in their last six games, including an 0-3-1 mark in the 2020 season that was cut short by COVID. Lexington fell to 0-2 on the season.

Lexi Kulis led the offense with two goals. Rebecca Devericks, Katie Shupe, Kimberly Torres, Mya McGowan and Rachel Devericks put in one each as Davie posted the most goals in 41 games. (It won 9-1 over Mt. Airy in the 2018 season opener.)

Stephens and assistant Collin Ferebee have three seniors, four juniors, six sophomores and three freshmen.

The seniors are Caroline Bliss, Emma Helton and Devereaux. The juniors are Ashley Tatem, Christine Cao, Shupe and Reece Sigmon. The sophomores are Avery Yount, Devericks, Emily Garner, Kulis, McGowan and Riley Almond. And the freshmen are Holt Carter, Torres and Skylar Link.
