PHS tied for first with Kettle Moraine Lutheran (Jackson) at 11- 2-1. The Chargers defeated Ripon, 7-0, on Thursday to conclude its ECC season.

“I am proud of how this group of girls worked to achieve this goal and it came down to the final game of the regular season,” said Panther head coach Brad Feick whose team ended its regular season with a 12-6-1 record.

“I thought we played one of our better games of the season, even though we didn’t necessarily score a lot.

“We probably could have scored a few more but a victory is a victory. The girls get to always say that they were the first to win the conference championship in the ECC’s first year,” said Feick.

The match was deadlocked, 2-2, at halftime.

PHS dominated on offense – holding a 21-7 advantage in shots on goal but narrowly missed the net on several shots. The Indians took a 1-0 lead on a goal by Molly Schulteis in the 29th minute.

PHS answered with two straight goals. Nuria Cervera tied the match, assisted by Kaylee Koenig, in the 32nd minute. Just three minutes later Koenig scored, assisted by Skyler Gosse.

The Indians tied the match on a goal by Jeray Riffel in the 37th minute.

PHS goalies Taylor Heyrman and Sam Meyer combined for five saves. Kewaskum goalkeeper Courtney Aker made 18.

“I thought we played one of our better games of the season, even though we didn’t necessarily score a lot. We moved the ball really well and remained composed even after Kewaskum scored first and then later tied the game before halftime,” said the coach.

“We kept answering positively and eventually took the lead for good. This was a total team effort from everyone.

“Defensively I thought we held up quite well, especially in the second half. In the first half we gave up too many chances but in the second half we prevented Kewaskum from penetrating our back line,” added Feick.

Kewaskum finished 4-8-2 in the ECC and fell to 7-10-5 overall.
