Davie’s JV soccer team entered the week 0-3-1, but records can be deceiving. The War Eagles of Collin Ferebee are not the punching bag they were the past two years and for as long as anyone can remember.

Last year, when they went 1-12, they got outscored 68-8. In 2022, when they went 0-8, they were outscored 35-3.

The 2024 War Eagles have been outscored 8-2 in four games. They are battling and pushing opponents for 60 minutes.

“The last time we played (Alexander Central, Reynolds and East Forsyth), the JV went 0-3 and got outscored 19-1,” Ferebee said.

Central, Reynolds and East outscored these War Eagles 6-2. “If that’s not improvement, I don’t know what it is. We’re on the right track. Eventually it’s gonna start swinging our way. I told them: ‘Don’t give up, keep working hard and we will get what is ours.’”

Davie made a good showing in a 2-1 loss to visiting East Forsyth on March 18. It was 2-0 with 10 minutes left when Kim Torres was the victim of a penalty. Jaylene Rivera took the PK and cut the deficit in half.

“We tried to get the second goal back,” Ferebee said. “We hit the crossbar a couple of times, but we could not get it in the net.”

The players of the game were Torres and Skylar Dwiggins.

“Kim was instrumental in a lot of our attacks, and she won the penalty,” Ferebee said. “Skylar got rocked near the end of the game. She had a good shot and was frustrated that it did not go in. I said: ‘Hey, you’re good.’ She went back out there and almost got us a goal. Without them, it would’ve been a very different game.”

Reagan 2, Davie 0

First-half mistakes cost Davie in Pfafftown on March 20.

“Overall it was a pretty solid half, but we made two really bad mistakes that led directly to goals,” Ferebee said. “We talked about it at halftime and the girls really took it to heart.”

After Reagan took a 2-0 lead to halftime, Davie had some nice moments in a scoreless second half.

“They fixed the problems, and I honestly think it was the best half we played all season,” he said. “After the game, they were upset with the result and I think that we have some good things coming in the future. We have players who care and are bought into changing Davie women’s soccer.”

Ferebee’s player of the game went to Fuller Kate Holt.

“She’s not going to have stats that show up in the columns people read, but she was really important to us tonight,” he said.
