PHS drops out of sole lead in ECC race

WINNECONNE – The Winneconne Wolves edged the Plymouth Panthers, 2-1, in an East Central Conference girls soccer showdown here Thursday evening.

The loss was the first of the season in ECC action for PHS which defeated Winneconne, 2-1, in an earlier-season meeting. The Wolves moved into a tie for the league lead with PHS after their 2-1 win over Kettle Moraine Lutheran (Jackson) on Friday.

PHS (13-3-2 overall) and Winneconne (15-2) are both 11-1 in ECC play, with two league games remaining for each team. The Panthers were ranked No. 6 in last week’s Wisconsin Soccer Coaches Association Division 3 poll.

Ellie Welsch gave PHS a 1-0 lead with a goal, assisted by Sydney Robinson, in the 14th minute.

The Wolves scored two goals within about three minutes of each other to take a 2-1 halftime lead. Kati Frierdich tallied the first goal, followed by Emily Heyroth’s goal. Morgan Fenrich assisted on both goals which came in the 24th and 27th minutes.

Winneconne held a 12-3 edge in shots on goal. PHS goalie Sam Meyer made 10 saves and Winneconne goalkeeper Sadie Kosciuk had two.

“We felt the urgency to score in the second half but we couldn’t quite get a great game-tying opportunity,” said Panther head coach Brad Feick.

“While we are disappointed in the opportunity to sweep Winneconne, our effort was nothing to be disappointed with. We left what we had on the field and that’s all we can really ask for. Now we just need to go and take care of ourselves.”
