Panthers lose on late goal, still lead ECC

JACKSON – Kettle Moraine Lutheran handed the Plymouth Panthers their first East Central Conference girls soccer loss of the season, 1-0, here Thursday afternoon on a goal by senior forward Abi Aswege with only six minutes left.

Despite the defeat, the Panthers remain in first place in a tight ECC race. PHS is 8-1-1 in the league (9-5-1 overall). KML and Winneconne are tied for second with 7-2-1 records, followed by Campbellsport at 6-1-2.

PHS has one match each re- maining against Winneconne and Campbellsport. The Panthers edged KML (8-5-1 overall), 3-2, on a late goal in their other meeting this season.

“Even though we gave up the goal, I liked our response. We pushed up immediately,” said Panther head coach Brad Feick.

“Taylor Heyrman [PHS goalie] tossed the ball out, Emily Majerus ran it up to midfield and we were ready to go.

“The mindset of this team is to win. They know that they can do it. We pushed up, worked to apply even more pressure but we just couldn’t get the equalizing goal,” said Feick.

Both teams had seven shots on goal. Taylor Heyrman made six saves and Charger goalie Maria Tomasetti had seven.

“We started the game well – a really good first five minutes. Then KML weathered our initial attack and the game was even throughout,” said Feick.

“I felt that defensively we held up well. Kaylee Koenig, Brooklin Willoughby, Lizzy Francis and Kaitlyn Heyrman played the back four well. This may have been our best game communicating on the field from the back.

“Taylor Heyrman played very well in goal. She was confident and came up with some big saves,” said the coach.
