Davis High’s women’s soccer team dominated visiting Bella Vista, winning 4-0 on Wednesday, March 2.
The Devils came out a little slow–only up 1-0 at half–but managed to find a rhythm later in the game.
Goals came from juniors Julia Curtis, Sidra Bugsch and Tiffany Miras, and freshman Paige Rubinstein.
The second half was not only the best soccer in this game against Bella Vista, but “I thought the second half was the best half of soccer we’ve played so far this season,” Bugsch said.
“As the game progressed we got more confident and played really well together,” senior captain Gabby Herrera explained.
Once the Devils began to move the ball quickly and confidently, they blew the competition away. “They couldn’t keep up with us once we got our rhythm,” Herrera said.
Bella Vista made it to the Sac-Joaquin Section semifinals last year, so Davis knew the team would be good competition.
“I think the second half was an accurate representation of how we hope to play throughout the season, but we are continuing to improve so hopefully we can raise the standard every game,” Bugsch said.
Because the majority of the team are underclassmen, there is a lot of room for improvement. “The team this year is very young and we have a lot of new players, so we are still working on building chemistry,” Bugsch said.
“We want to continue to be successful and if we work hard during our practices and during our games, we will be,” Herrera said.
