Davie’s JV soccer team is coming off a winless season, but it put up a good fight in the first game of the season, losing 2-1 at home to North Davidson on March 8.

Caylee Willard scored as Davie carried a 1-0 lead to halftime. North punched in two late goals to deny the War Eagles.

“We had them shut out for 55 or 60 minutes,” coach Collin Ferebee said. “It was our first game, so a lot of these girls hadn’t played together yet, so chemistry wasn’t quite there. But I was pleased with what I saw.”

Notes: Davie went 0-8 in 2022. Ferebee has replaced Megan Baker as coach. Baker guided the JV for one year. … Davie’s second game was not any fun, an 8-0 home loss to Reynolds on March 15.
