The Darton College women's soccer team, stunned two weeks ago by a shut-out loss to Florida's Brevard College, have responded in dominating fashion. It seems that shake up was exactly what the Cavaliers needed.
Since the 1-0 home loss to the Titans, the Cavs have posted 30 goals while not allowing a single shot in to their own net. That's a streak the team hopes to continue this week with the largest challenges of the regular season upcoming.
DC hosts 7-2 South Georgia College on Tuesday, and travel to NJCAA third-ranked Georgia Perimeter on Friday.
South Georgia has not lost a game since its 9-0 blowout loss to Darton on Aug. 31. South Georgia hasn't played in a week providing the Tigers with plenty of time to prepare for the Cavaliers. Darton believes this week will shape its season, and the plans of a national title.
"I think we're maturing as a team every game and we're at that point I think we're ready for a good test. I think Tuesday and Friday are the perfect match-up for us," Darton head coach Ken Veilands said.
"If we end up with the wins, it's definitely a huge confidence booster because we know if we can beat (Georgia) Perimeterâ|there should be no reason we should not go to Nationals," Darton forward Shelby Bush said.
Tigers and Cavaliers square off from the Darton Soccer Complex at 5 pm on Tuesday.
