The match was the season opener for the Panthers who shared the ECC crown with Winneconne last year. KML dropped to 0-1-1.

“This was a great start to our season. After practices indoors and inclement weather we fi- nally were able to get outside and play a game,” said Panther head coach Brad Feick whose team had its scheduled opener on April 5 postponed due to an unplayable field.

“Everyone performed well. While there are plenty of areas to improve, this is a great start to the conference season. We got great contributions from both our returning players and our newcomers.”

The Panthers jumped out to a 1-0 lead only 23 seconds into the match on a goal by Hannah Stucke, assisted by Sydney Robinson.

“Scoring in less than 30 sec- onds really helped put KML back on their heels and gave us confidence as we went on,” said Feick.

PHS scored three more goals in the first half to go up 4-0. Robinson kicked the second and third goals on assists by Katie Pocian and Ellie Welsch, respectively.

The fourth goal of the opening half was scored by Carly Lilek, assisted by Welsch.

Lilek scored the final goal on an assist by Carley Reil.

PHS dominated on offense with a 10-2 edge in shots on goal. Panther goalkeeper Sam Meyer made two saves.

“We had moments of good possession, especially in the first half. In the second half we seemed to turn the ball over quite a bit. We need to do a better job controlling the ball and keeping possession for five, six, seven passes without losing it,” Feick pointed out.

I was pleased with our overall effort and performance,” said the coach.
