Davenport soccer wins District title

Gorillas clinch state berth with 2-1 win

DAVENPORT-For the second straight year, the Gorilla soccer team is headed to state. This year, it's by virtue of a District 7 championship clinched with a 2-1 victory over Northwest Christian (Colbert) in a Halloween game that was eerily like the regular season finale played between the two rivals a week prior.

With the win, Davenport clinched a spot in the 1B/2B state playoffs, while Northwest Christian will have to win its way in during District 6/7 crossovers.

Like last week, Davenport jumped out to a quick first half lead. This time, it was courtesy of eighth-grader Charlotte Soliday.
