The Davie boys lacrosse team won two of its first three games last week. The loss was the Central Piedmont Conference opener.

In the season opener on Feb. 28, Davie handed visiting St. Stephens a 16-3 shellacking.

Daniel Reichard (4), Ryan Walton (3), Camden Beck (2), Sam Warner (2) and Alex Speckin (2) all had multiple goals. Ty Carter, Isaac Parker and Owen Horne also scored. Speckin (3) and Walton (3) were the assist leaders. Kole Bilyeu, Carter, Horne and Beck added assists.

“The guys played well,” assistant coach Corey Tilley said. “I thought we stayed focussed throughout the game, but we still have some small mistakes we have to fix. We moved the ball OK, but we need better passes and off-ball movement to keep the flow moving. Defensively, the guys were physical and did well.”

Walton racked up 8 goals and Speckin handed out 5 assists as Davie rolled at North Davidson on March 2.

“We came out to start the game with low energy,” Tilley said. “Once our guys got a few goals, the intensity went up.”

Reichard (5), Beck (2), Bilyeu, Carter, Bryce Harnsberger and Speckin had goals. Bilyeu (2), Harnsberger (2), Chase Atkinson, Walton, Reichard, Beck and Nick Ruff had the assists.
