Despite the loss, PHS head coach Brad Feick was pleased with his team’s performance in the nonconference match.

“We started strongly and did pass well, especially in the first half. Hartford was able to capitalize on a few mistakes that led to goals but overall our overall quality of play continues to improve,” said Panther head coach Brad Feick whose team slipped to 2-3.

“The goal differential doesn’t represent the type of game that this was. Both teams were quite equal.”

The Panthers took a 1-0 lead on Kersten Dewey’s goal, assisted by Sydney Robinson. The Orioles tied the score, 1-1, at halftime on Mallory Knight’s goal.

The Orioles led 12-4 in shots on goal. PHS goalie Taylor Heyrman made seven saves. Hartford goalies Derritt Dietlmeier and Sarah Duncan had two saves and one, respectively.

“Kersten made a great play on her goal. She received it, controlled it, and placed the ball in goal all with great composure,” said Feick.

“We worked to switch the field and did create some opportunities, but we can do better. Defensively, we wore out. We went from playing composed and working to possess to a team playing frantically and attempting to go directly down the field.”

JUNIOR VARSITY GAME
