Davie’s varsity soccer team was kicking itself after a 2-0 season-opening loss at Starmount on Aug. 15. Take away the first five minutes and this could have been a different outcome.

“We played great soccer. We just gave up two goals in the first 4:30 of the game, and we just couldn’t recover after that,” coach Marco Rebollar said. “We controlled most of the game.”

The Rams have piled up nine straight winning seasons, including a 13-7-1 mark in 2022. They went 141-47-6 from 2014-22. By contrast, Davie only managed 17 victories during the same span.

Two days later, though, the War Eagles had no chance against visiting West Iredell. After tying Atkins 0-0 in their opener, the Warriors blew out Davie 5-0.
