Learning experience for PHS in debut loss

SLINGER – The Plymouth Panthers lost their girls soccer season opener, 3-0, to Slinger here Tuesday afternoon in nonconference play but gained valuable experience.

“For the first game of the season and considering the weather conditions, we played an alright game. We learned some things that we can build on,” said Panther head coach Brad Feick.

“Although we lost, there were many bright spots but we need to be more consistent overall.”

The Owls took a 2-0 halftime lead on an own goal (a pass from a PHS defender back to the goalie inadvertently went into the net) and a goal by Charmaine Dee. Slinger’s third goal was scored by the Dee, assisted by CaSandra Warmsely.

PHS led 10-7 in shots on goal but failed to capitalize on a few scoring opportunities. PHS goalies Taylor Heyrman and Sam Meyer had five and two saves, respectively. Slinger’s Emily Groth made 10 saves in the goal.

“We started the game really well. Our defensive back four [Skyler Gosse, Olivia Jankowski, Brooke Frederickson and Lizzy Francis along with Kaitlyn Heryman) did a fantastic job limiting scoring opportunities. In fact, much of the first 20 minutes was played within the midfield or our attacking third,” Feick noted.
