Panthers repeat as ECC champions

KEWASKUM – The Plymouth Panthers earned a share of their second straight East Central Conference girls soccer championship with a 4-0 win over Kewaskum here Thursday evening.

PHS and Winneconne are the ECC co-champions with 13-1 records. They split their two meetings this season.

The Panthers ended their regular season with a 15-3-2 record. They will host the winner of the Ripon-Berlin first-round game in the Division 3 regional semifinals Thursday at 5 p.m.

PHS took a 2-0 halftime lead on goals by Jayda Martell and Sydney Robinson in the first seven minutes. Skyler Gosse assisted pn Martell’s goal. Martell had the assist on Robinson’s tally.

Scoring one goal each in the second half were Taylor Heyrman and Kalee Koenig. Robinson assisted on Heyrman’s goal.

PHS led 19-4 in shots on goal. Panther goalie Sam Meyer made four saves. Indian goalkeeper Mikayla Dogs had 13 saves.

“We played alright this after- noon. We had opportunities early that would have put away the game but we struggled to finish and convert those chances,” said PHS head coach Brad Feick.

“However, we did finish enough to win the game and keep the shutout. That was what we needed to do. Sometimes you just need to win the game regardless of overall performance.

“I did like the energy that we came out with in the second half. We generated opportunities from the right and left and nearly finished a few of them early in the second half. We just didn’t get enough,” said Feick.

“It was fun to see the enthusiasm of winning a conference championship.”

The Panthers shared the inaugural ECC title last year with Kettle Moraine Lutheran (Jackson).
