PHS led 16-7 in shots on goal. Panther goalie Elizabeth Bolland made five saves. Indian goalkeeper Courtney Aker had 13 saves.

“We played hesitant [in the first hakf] and Kewaskum played like they wanted to win the game,” said PHS head coach Brad Feick.

“At halftime we regrouped and went out and earned the goals. I liked to see how we recovered and stayed focused on the game.

“We came out aggressively [in the second half] and scored on a beautiful cross from Mathilde to Olivia Jankowski who was able to finish the play in the box. Mathilde made the most of her opportunities and really gave us a boost today,” Feick said.
