“For the first game of the season I felt that we played well. Our midfield play was pretty good – passing, movement and vision – especially in the first half,” said Panther head coach Brad Feick.

All of the scoring came in the first half. PHS grabbed a 1-0 lead on Sydney Robinson’s close-range goal only 40 seconds into the match, assisted by Kersten Dewey.

Ali Wolf’s goal in the 12th minute brought the Owls even, 1-1.

Robinson’s second goal gave PHS a 2-1 lead in the 23rd minute, with Kaitlyn Luedtke earning an assist. PHS went up 3-1 on a goal by Hannah Stucke, assisted by Kaylee Koenig on a corner kick in the 31st minute.

The Owls (1-1-1) rallied to tie the match at 3-3 with a goal each from Charmaine Dee and Lilian Smith, respectively, in the final two minutes of the first half.

“We were able to generate high-quality scoring opportunities in the first half and had a few in the second. One [shot] hit the crossbar in the first half and we had two chances in the second half that were great goal scoring opportunities. As the year progresses, we’ll convert them,” said Feick.

Both teams had 10 shots on goal. PHS goalkeeper Sam Meyer made seven saves and Slinger goalie Kira Wagner had six.

“Defensively we were working players into new roles and building rapport among teammates. In the second half we did a much better job picking up their attacking mid within our midfield,” said Feick.
