“It is always important to start on a positive note at the beginning of a season and today we were able to do just that,” said Panther head coach Rommy Herrera.

“It was a difficult game. WBW has talented and strong players and we were down in the first two minutes of the game. However, the team’s attitude of not giving up and always looking to score and win the match led us to our first win of the season.

PHS led 11-8 in shots on goal. Panther goalies Saunders Gentine and Gabe Thull made five and three saves, respectively. Spartan goalkeeper Nate Millard had seven saves.

“During the preseason we worked very hard and today we saw all that hard work start to pay off. We looked faster and stronger than the opposing team during the entire game,” added Herrera.
