The nonconference upped the Redwings’ record to 1-1 while the Panthers dropped to 0-2.

South took advantage of a strong wind in the opening half. Junior forward-midfielder Jenna Zelm scored the Redwings’ first goal in the fourth minute, assisted by Baylee Rivas.

Zelm’s second goal made it 2-0 in the 18th minute. Jordan Lohse was credited with an assist.

Rivas kicked a goal which pushed South’s advantage to 3-0 25 minutes into the game.

Sophomore forward Kalei Hering put PHS on the scoreboard with a goal in the 35th minute, shaving South’s lead to 3-1. The score was 3-1 at halftime.

The Panthers closed to within 3-2 on a goal by junior forward Olivia Jankowski with about 10 minutes left. Sophomore midfielder Carlee Olsen had an assist.

PHS almost scored the tying goal late in the match.

“Being three goals down in the first half is quite a deficit to work to come out of. At halftime we made an adjustment to play with three forwards and a lone central midfielder to attempt to generate more pressure on South’s defense,” said Panther head coach Brad Feick.

“Sheboygan South played a good game. They struck first and stole the early momentum. The wind definitely impacted the game for both teams.

“We had a few really good scoring opportunities but we failed to capitalize on them. The girls kept fighting to come back from the three-goal deficit and nearly did so in the final minutes. It’s something to build on,” said Feick.

The Redwings held a 10-9 lead in shots on goal. PHS junior goalkeeper Elizabeth Bolland made seven saves. Hope Jochimsen and Megan Bergin split the goalie duties for South and had four and three saves, respectively.

“We had moments during the game in which we did some very good things: switching the field through our central midfield, using the width of the field, maintaining possession, committing to runs,” Feick noted.

“But we need to work to do them much more consistently. We did have a few miscues, offensively and defensively, and unfortunately those miscues cost us goals. This is a young team that will continue to grow as the season progresses.”


In JV action, the Panthers breezed to an 8-1 victory over South. Kersten Dewey, Jayda Martell and Maddie Werner led the PHS attack with two goals each.

Destiny Henschel and Ellie Welsch contributed one goal each for the Panthers. Kaitlyn Luedtke, Sarah Morris, Martell and Lexi Lautenschlaeger had one assist apiece.
