“It was a really good game today against a good rival. We knew today was going to be a good test for us,” said Panther head coach Rommy Herrera whose team is 8-1-2 this season.

“We have been playing well lately and playing against better competition was what we needed.”

The Panthers grabbed a 1-0 lead on a goal by senior forward Cole Bogenschuetz in the 22nd minute. Freshman midfielder Clayton Lautenschlaeger had an assist.

Grafton (5-3-3) tied the match when Logan Block scored in the 38th minute, assisted by Patrick Stilb. The game was tied 1-1 at halftime.

PHS led 6-4 in shots on goal. Panther goalie Saunders Gentine made three saves. Grafton goalie Noah Chopp had five.

“The guys played well and controlled Grafton for long periods during the game. Grafton was fast and there were some situations where they were close to scoring but defensively we controlled them,” said Herrera.

“Our goalie Saunders Gentine [senior] played an impressive game – the best of his high school career. He was making saves that definitely kept us in the game.

“Games like this one usually are won by the team who makes less mistakes. Today we made one mistake and they did too and at the end we divided honors. I am very proud of my entire group for how we have been playing and hopefully we can keep getting better and better,” added the coach.
