The win moved the Panthers into sole possession of first place in the Eastern Wisconsin Conference race – a half-game ahead of New Holstein/Elkhart Lake-Glenbeulah. PHS is 9-1 in the EWC (12-5 overall) and NH/ EL-G is 8-1.

The shutout was the Panthers’ eighth in EWC action and stretched their winning streak to four. Waupun fell to 2-9 in the league (3-14-1 overall).

Welsch tallied all three of his goals in the second half as PHS outscored the Warriors 5-0. Contributing one goal apiece in the half were Antonio Cambise and Nick Stucke.

Aidan Woida, Corby Gafney, Tomas Casado and Cambise had one assist each.

“We played well today. We controlled the ball and the opportunities to score,” said Panther head coach Rommy Herrera.

“Waupun usually plays well defensively and today we knew it was not going to be different. The first half they did a good job stoping our attack but we were able to be patient and kept trying to score.”

PHS had an impressive 16-1 advantage in shots on goal. Panther goalkeeper Drew Schweiger made one save and Warrior goalie Colton Homan had 10.
