Behind the 1-2 punch of Kinnah Chamberlain and Grace Butler, the Davie girls lacrosse team emphatically ended a five-game losing streak at Southwest Guilford on April 8.

“It was definitely a much-needed win,” coach Haley Hines said after the 13-7 decision.

Chamberlain delivered six goals, while Butler produced a three-goal, three-assist performance to lead the way. Chamberlain left the field with 50 goals in 12 games, putting her in the top 44 in the state in that category and in the top 12 in the 4-A West.

“She’s pretty much our leader when it comes to scoring goals and playing attack,” Hines said. “Out of her 50 goals, she’s had 69 total shots, so she has a pretty good record of making what she shoots.

“Grace, especially on the attacking end, was some of the best play that we’ve had. Kinnah and Grace played very well together. We have a play that we run and both of them ran it. Kinnah set the pick for Grace and Grace ended up scoring off of it.”

Jenna Scully had two goals, while Zoey Cleary and Lilli Seats had one each.

Davie 21, Tabor 4

At home on April 9, the War Eagles stopped a three-game losing streak in the CPC by blasting through Mt. Tabor.

“It was a great game,” Hines said. “We controlled the pace of the game and attack and the defense moved extremely well.”

Chamberlain was at it again with five goals. Seats (3), Butler (3), Cleary (3), Kayden Richardson (2) and Scully (2) had multiple goals. Lila Moore, Reese Tutterow and Kimber Holston rounded out the scoring. The assist leaders were Butler (5) and Cleary (3).

And then there was Danika Williams and the defense.

“Danika had some really great saves,” Hines said. “The defense was like a brick wall and the offensive movement was solid. I’m very proud of the full effort we put forth.”

West 14, Davie 4

Three days later in Clemmons, though, the War Eagles stood no chance against a 13-1 West Forsyth squad. The consolation for Davie: It was much closer than the March 12 meeting (22-3). The loss dropped Davie to 5-9 overall and 3-7 in the CPC.
