Panthers win on Meyer’s penalty kick

BERLIN – Senior defender Collin Meyer’s penalty kick in the 39th minute lifted the Plymouth Panthers over the Berlin Indians, 1-0, in an East Central Conference boys soccer match here Thursday afternoon.

The Panthers hiked their ECC record to 3-0 (6-0-1 overall). PHS has three shutouts in league play.

“Winning for us being in a new conference is very important if we want to build the reputation we had in our old conference of being a strong and competitive soccer team,” said Panther head coasch Rommy Herrera.

“Today [Thursday] was strange day. We played well and controlled the ball but we missed in every opportunity we had in front of the goal. Berlin has some good players that keep us busy during the game.

“We played with 10 players for 60 minutes after getting a red card, and that extra player they had made a big difference in the way we played today. However, I am proud of how Plymouth never gave up and came out with the win in a difficult field,” said Herrera.

The Panthers held a huge edge in shots on goal at 13-2. PHS goalie Saunders Gentine made one save.
