Morris sparks Panthers to ECC rout

BERLIN – Sophomore midfielder Sarah Morris exploded for four goals to ignite the Plymouth Panthers to a 10-0 thumping of Berlin in an East Central Conference girls soccer match here Thursday afternoon.

PHS upped its ECC record to 2-0 (2-2 overall).

The goals for Morris were her first ones in varsity play. All four goals were scored in the second half as the Panthers erupted for nine goals after leading only 1-0 at halftime.

Kaylee Koenig’s penalty kick in the sixth minute accounted for Plymouth’s first-half tally.

Scoring one goal each in the second half were Sydney Robinson, Kersten Dewey, Kalei Hering, Ellie Welsch and Nuria Cervera. Koenig, Hering, Morris and Welsch had one assist each.

“It took us awhile to get going but once we did the goal started to open up a bit. We wanted to work on our possession and we were able to create scoring opportunities,” said PHS head coach Brad Feick.

“I thought that we moved the ball well. In the first half, I could tell that we were getting a bit frustrated with the near misses but we continued to create and took the opportunities when they were there.”

The Panthers held a whopping 24-1 advantage in shots on goal. PHS goalkeeper Taylor Heyrman made one save and teammate Sam Meyer also played in the goal. Berlin goalie Shelby Williams was credited with 14 saves.

“As the game went on we were able to see where the runs could develop, and scoring chances presented themselves. Our outside midfielders did a great job getting wide and crashing the opposite post,” Feick noted.

“Sarah Morris was composed and directed the the ball into the net each time. Kersten Dewey did the same when her opportunity came.

“In the second half we were able to move the ball around. The last goal was scored after five consecutive passes starting on the right, moving it across to the left, and then back to the right, and Morris converted it,” said the coach.

“Overall, I was pleased with our performance.”
