Davie’s soccer team finished strong and sent six seniors out on a high note in the final week of the season.

Davie beat Parkland 4-2 at home before winning 6-0 at Glenn. Both games went as expected after the War Eagles dominated them in the first meetings.

Lanna Robinson, Lexi Kulis, Sarah Andrade and Emily Garner did the scoring against Parkland on May 8. Two days later in Kernersville, Caylee Willard, Madison Hayes, Robinson, Kulis, Andrade and Garner shared the scoring as the War Eagles completed a 6-10-2 season.

Although the War Eagles finished sixth in the eight-team Central Piedmont Conference, they weren’t far from fourth. They lost six CPC games by one or two goals.

“We were competitive with No. 2 all the way through the rest of the conference,” coach Corbin Kopetzky said. “We were in tight games with East Forsyth, Reagan and Mt. Tabor, and we beat Reynolds once and tied them once.”

Suiting up for Davie for the last time were seniors Mya McGowan, Kulis, Riley Almond, Garner, Avery Yount and Bree Hart.

“It was never a dull moment with our seniors,” Kopetzky said. “I loved every second of getting to coach that group. They set a foundation I think we can continue to build on.”

West Forsyth captured the league title with a 13-1 record. East Forsyth was 12-2, Reagan 10-4, Tabor 7-6-1, Reynolds 5-7-2, Davie 5-8-1, Parkland 2-12 and Glenn 0-14.
