The Panthers, who ran their winning streak to six, hiked their first-place Eastern Wisconsin Con- ference record to 5-0 (6-3 overall). PHS has an impressive four EWC shutouts. The Huskies dropped to 2-1 in the league (3-3 overall).

Sophomore forward Olivia Jankowski scored the winning goal five minutes into the second half on an assist from senior midfi elder/forward Elle Klecka.

“It was a great win against a very talented New Holstein team,” said Panther head coach Brad Feick.

“It was a battle the entire game. We held New Holstein’s early pressure and countered in the first half but it didn’t lead to any goals.

Jankowski was able to hold off New Holstein’s defender to earn the goal,” said Feick.

PHS goalkeepers Sophie Hau and Elizabeth Bolland stepped up huge with a combined 11 saves, including seven by Bolland. The Huskies held an 11-9 edge in shots on goal. New Holstein goalie Alicia Kahl made six saves.

“Our goalies really played well. Their play solidified the shutout. Hau and Bolland both made plays that kept us in the game.

“I’m impressed with New Holstein. They were aggressive and were able to get off a lot of shots,” said the coach.

“Emily Meinnert gave a strong effort in middle alongside Mackenzie Haese and Brooke Reichert. Emily is starting to see the field and play physically against opponents.

“Defensively I was pleased with the way that our back four played. With the amount of pressure and speed that they were under, they held up pretty well,” said Feick.
