The match was the Eastern Wisconsin Conference opener for the Panthers who improved to 5-1 overall. Only the second half of the EWC schedule (seven matches per team) will be used to determine the league champion due to several matches being canceled because of inclement weather.

“Sarah’s goal was huge. We moved her outside to get open looks at the goal. She got her feet set and made a great shot,” said Panther head coach Brad Feick.

“The weather played a huge factor in today’s game. I was afraid that lightning would strike and we would be tied – game over.

“Kiel played all 11 players behind the ball inside the 18. We had plenty of shots but their defense managed to force a lot of deflections. Their goalie made a lot of nice saves to keep Kiel in the game.

“Our defense did a great job getting up into the attacking third to put pressure on Kiel’s defense,” Feick said.

The Panthers dominated the shots on goal at 14-2. PHS goalkeepers Sophie Hau and Kathryn Aukerman made one save each. Raider goalie Alyssa Summers had 13 saves.
