Both teams missed several scoring chances, including ones late in regulation. The match lasted a grueling 100 minutes, including two 10-minute overtime periods.

The Panthers remain in first place in the EWC with an 8-0-1 record (11-6-2 overall). New Holstein is in second at 6-1-1. The teams meet May 27 at New Holstein.

Falls, which shared the league title with PHS last year, is 3-2-3 in the EWC and in fourth place. (8-3-6 overall).

PHS nearly scored with five minutes left in regulation (75th minute] but Brooke Reichert’s direct kick hit the crossbar.

Falls almost won it in the final minute of regulation but Tiffany Fischer’s penalty kick was wide left of the net.

“It was a typical Plymouth Sheboygan Falls game. Both teams competed hard and worked to produce a goal but neither was successful,” said PHS head coach Brad Feick.

PHS goalkeeper Sophie Hau made an incredible, diving save in the first half. Hau made three saves and teammate Elizabeth Bolland had eight.

Both teams attempted 11 shots on goal. Falcon goalkeepers Samantha Oppeneer and Asha Ritchie made six and five saves, respectively.

“A tie in Sheboygan Falls is a pretty good outcome. They’ve beaten some very good teams this season. We are still where we want to be in terms of the conference,” said Feick.

“We’re looking for ways to score, and we missed several great opportunities,” said Falcon head coach Brian Mentink.

“It’s always a battle when we play each other and we’ll likely see each other again.”
