PHS improved to 4-0 in the East Central Conference (7-1-1 overall) and remained in first place along with Winneconne. The loss was the first in ECC play for Lutheran which slipped to 3-1 (4-3 overall).

“I am very happy of how things went today. Not just because we won but the way the team played,” said Panther head coach Rommy Herrera.

“We never stop running or trying. There was a lot of intensity and good soccer.

Corby Gafney gave PHS a 1-0 halftime lead with a goal at the 25-minute mark, assisted by Eric Novak.

The Panthers broke the game open with a pair of second-half goals. Ryan Holec’s goal in the 48th minute made it 2-0. Layton Albright had the assist. The final tally was by Novak, assisted by Gafney, at the 60-minute mark.

“The players were connecting good passes and the communication on and off the field made a difference,” said Herrera.

“During the entire game we were the team in control of the ball and the opportunities to score. We knew it was going to be a difficult game and the players did a really good job controlling the ball and moving well without it during the game.”

The Panthers dominated the shots on goal with a 14-2 edge. Cole Bogenschuetz and Saunders Gentine split the goalie duties for PHS and made one save each. Charger goalkeeper Danny Hennen had 10 saves.
