Freshman midfielder Sydney Robinson assisted on the goal. The Panthers are 4-1-3 in EWC (4-5-3 overall) and in second place behind Sheboygan Falls. Kiel is 3-3-2 in league action.

The Raiders’ goal was from Micayla Fritsch in the 17th minute.

PHS led 11-5 in shots on goal. Panther goalkeeper Elizabeth Bolland made four saves and Raider goalie Alyssa Summers had 10.

“I was pleased to see the fight that we had after dropping a goal early. We obviously wanted to score first first and push Kiel back on their heels but instead we found ourselves down a goal,” said PHS head coach Brad Feick.

We had a few chances that I would have liked to see converted but eventually our hard work led to the game-tying goal.

“Olivia Jankowski fought to get position and a touch on the ball to convert the opportunity. Prior to the goal we pressured the ball and forced Kiel to a turnover possession,” said Feick.

“I thought that we held possession quite well. Emily Meinnert played a very good game at the defensive midfield position. She helped solidify the midfield.

“Sidney Robinson gave us a spark with her speed on top. She earned three direct kicks all around the 18 [yards]. We now need to be able to convert those chances,” said Feick.

JUNIOR VARSITY MATCH

PHS dominated the JV match, 11-1, to improve its season record to 12-0.

Carly Lilek sparked the Panthers’ attack with three goals. Sarah Morris led in assists with two.

“We continue playing well. The team played aggressively and connected good passes,” said PHS coach Rommy Herrera.
