“This was a ‘Petrie Strong’ win. We dedicated the game to our coach and friend Jeff Petrie, and the guys played a perfect game,” said PHS head coach Rommy Herrera.

Petrie, a former PHS junior varsity boys soccer coach, passed away a year ago. His son, Brady Petrie, is a senior midfielder on this year’s PHS varsity squad.

“The team was excited and engaged during the whole game. We knew it was going to be a difficult game but we never stopped trying and working,” said Herrera.

PHS upped its record to 10-3-1 and made it four straight wins. The Tritons dropped to 10-7.

The Panthers grabbed a 1-0 lead on a goal by Clayton Lautenschlaeger at the 37:54 mark. Alex Kelly had an assist. PHS led 1-0 at halftime.

PHS went up 2-0 Mason Dale’s goal at 54:50, assisted by Lautenschlaeger.

“The two goals were a beautiful combination of passes. But the second goal, scored by Mason Dale after a pass from Clayton, has been one of the best goals I have seen in all my years coaching at PHS,” said Herrera.

The Tritons’ goal was scored by Stephen Scripp at the 75-minute mark.

PHS held a 10-5 advantage in shots on goal. Panther goalie Gabe Thull made four saves and Triton goalie Noal Watzka had six.
