Freshman Caroline Mitchell only needed eight minutes to score her first high school goal, and Davie’s varsity soccer team smacked Western Guilford 4-1 in Greensboro on Feb. 27.

“We are young this year, but the girls have bought in at practice,” coach Corbin Kopetzky said after the season opener. “We moved the ball well.”

Lydia Postell, Lanna Robinson and Lauren Colamarino followed Mitchell with goals, and Robinson had two assists. It was a nice start after finishing 6-10-2 last year.

“There was a stretch where we fell apart a little bit, but we capitalized on what we needed to,” Kopetzky said. “We had about 60 minutes where we moved the ball great. The girls are in great shape. That’s kind of our game and they used that to our advantage.”

Notes: The War Eagles scored three unanswered goals after the Hornets tied it at 1-1. … The seniors on the team are Ella Little, Kim Torres, Maddie Hayes, Skylar Link, Jaden Smith, Colamarino and Tania Arellano. The juniors are Monica Ramirez, Jaden Sink, Sarah Andrade and Postell. The sophomores are Caylee Willard, Fuller Kate Holt, Robinson and Aubrie Pulaski. Mitchell is the only freshman on varsity.
