Panthers lose tough, physical match



PLYMOUTH – The Plymouth Panthers had a strong first half but were unable to keep it going as they fell to visiting Sheboygan North, 2-1, in a nonconference girls soccer match Tuesday afternoon.

The loss dropped the Panthers’ record to 0-3. The match was the Golden Raiders’ season debut.

Megan Dahle scored the game-winning goal for North in the 50th minute which snapped a 1-1 halftime tie.

PHS took a 1-0 lead on a goal by sophomore forward Olivia Jankowski only three minutes into the match. Senior midfielder Mackenzie Haese had the assist.

The Golden Raiders knotted the game, 1-1, on Paige Kukla’s goal, assisted by Jaelyn Walter in the 13th minute.

“We started well and played pretty well throughout the first half,” said Panther head coach Brad Feick.

“We were getting into space and pressuring North’s defense. Once the second half started and we dropped that second goal, we couldn’t get momentum back.

“This group will be alright. We know what we have to work on and we will continue to do so,” said Feick.

“Both teams played hard, physical soccer.”

North led 7-6 in shots on goal. Panther goalkeeper Sophie Hau made five saves and North goalie Emma Gentine had five.

“Despite giving up two goals, Hau made a few aggressive plays on the ball that halted North’s attack. I was glad to see her play that way,” Feick said.
