The goal came after PHS applied strong pressure on the Falcons’ defense which helped cause the ball to inadvertently go off a Falls player and into the Falcons’ net.

The match was the EWC opener for both teams. Falls is the defending league champion. PHS, which finished third in the EWC last year and handed the Falcons their only EWC loss, upped their overall record to 3-1.

“I am really proud of the whole team. Today [Monday] was a really hot and humid day but the team never gave up,” said Panther head coach Rommy Herrera.

It could have ended with a win for either team.

“Both teams created opportunities to score and were organized in defense. Today’s game is the kind of game in which the team that makes less mistakes will win and that’s exactly what happened,” Herrera said.

PHS goalkeepers Drew Schweiger and Jared Weinbauer came up huge as they combined for 17 saves – nine by Weinbauer and eight for Schweiger. The Falcons led 17-12 in shots on goal.

Falcon goalie Mitchell Lambrecht was credited with eight saves.

“It’s a tough game to lose so early in the season. I feel we controlled the game but they got the lucky bounce and that was the game,” said Falcon head coach Kris Rusch.

“Being the first conference game between the top teams was very competitive. We need to be ready and I expect this team will next time.”
