The Northview girls soccer team had more than their hands full with a tough Danville squad on Wednesday night. The Warriors kept the pressure on throughout the game and despite a very good game from goal keeper Christina Arvin, the Knights dropped a 3-0 decision.
"That was probably one of the best games Christina's played for us," commented coach Don Bryan of his keeper. "We've been really lucky since I've been here to have great keepers in net."
Arvin easily saved four goals in net with a couple of diving saves and by deflecting a couple of other one-on-one opportunities the Warriors had against the Northview keeper.
At the 37 minute mark of the first half, Arvin got a piece of one shot from Danville that deflected to another forward and with a quick reaction, Arvin was able to push the followup shot wide as well.
Unfortunately, just four minutes later, the Warriors' Dannie Bishop hauled down a long pass upfield that got her a one-on-one shot with Arvin which the Warriors capitalized on this time for a 1-0 advantage. Danville would add a second goal late in the first half on another goal from Bishop.
The Knights would get seven shots on net in the first half, with several other potential chances called back due to offside calls.
Danville would add third goal with 23 minutes remaining in the game to cap the scoring for the Warriors.
Arvin would make 29 saves in net for Northview with sophomores Emma Reed and Abby Birkey each saving four on defense. Jazmine Kellum led the squad with four steals with Sage Graverson, Kelsey Haring and Birkey each adding three.
The Knights (1-5 overall) will take on Sullivan on the road on Wednesday.
