KML tied the match when Joseph Raasch scored on a free kick with only 45 seconds left.

PHS and KML are tied for the lead in the overall ECC championship standings with 7-1-1 records heading into the final round which was scheduled for Oct. 12.

The Panthers (12-3-2 overall) came into Tuesday’s match ranked No. 10 in this week’s Wisconsin Soccer Coaches Association Division 3 poll. KML (12-2-3 overall) is ranked No. 7 in the D-4 poll.

PHS took a 1-0 lead on a goal by senior Connor Joseph, assisted by Garrison Pierce with 10 minutes until halftime.

“A real battle for first place. When you have two really good teams playing against each other just good things can happen. Both teams played well,” said Panther head coach Rommy Herrera.

“The first half we controlled the ball and created many opportunities to score and the second half they played better and made us work extra hard, defensively. I am proud of how the team played.”

PHS led 8-7 in shots on goal. Panther goalie Gabe Thill was credited with six saves. Charger goalkeeper Zach Zuleger had six saves.

PHS edged KML, 3-2, in their other meeting this season which was the ECC opener for both teams.
