PHS improved to 4-0-1 in the EWC (11-3-1 overall) and remained tied for first with Sheboygan Falls.

Senior forward Becca Ebbott scored the Panthers’ first goal midway through the second half. Junior midfielder-forward Elle Klecka kicked the second goal with eight minutes left, assisted by Ebbott.

PHS led 13-4 in shots on goal. Panther junior goalkeeper Sophie Hau made four saves. Husky goalie Alicia Kahl was credited with 11.

“Entering the game we wanted to control the tempo and win 50- 50 balls. We did that. We were more aggressive and it showed,” said Panther head coach Brad Feick.

If we knock of few of those goals in early, the momentum shifts our way and the final score is a bit different.

“Instead, New Holstein defended well and kept us scoreless for over 60 minutes,” Feick said.

“Erin Falk had a strong game, especially in the first half, paired with Becca Ebbott. Becca took a beating but kept fighting for position and scoring chances. Her determination led to the first score and later Elle’s goal.

“Elle had a strong game on the outside. She and Haley Olsen can always be counted on to set a physical tone. Brooke Reichert played aggressively as a forward and helped get that first goal,” said the coach.

“Meghan Roelse, Rachel Francis, Emily Schirmer and Emily Vorpagel continue to defend and get into the offensive attack when needed. Rachel made a really nice run in the second half.”
