Panthers gain quality win over Wrightstown

PLYMOUTH – The Plymouth Panthers earned a 1-0 girls soccer win over a strong Wrightstown team in a non-conference girls soccer match here Thursday afternoon.

PHS upped its record to 3-1 while the Tigers dropped to 2-1. Plymouth was ranked No. 9 in last week’s Wisconsin Soccer Coaches Association Division 3 poll.

Senior midfielder/forward Jayda Martell scored the winning goal 13 minutes into the first half.

“Jayda pressured the Wrightstown defender. The added pressure caused her [defender] to lose possession and Jayda was able to control the ball and finish the scoring opportunity in the left side of the goal,” said Panther head coach Brad Feick.

“We played a very solid game, our best of the season. Our midfield really came together and we generated a lot of scoring opportunities.

“We’ve been trying to solidify our midfield and defenders in the first few games of the season. Ellie Welsch, Emma Welsch and Maggie Munson are doing a great job holding the midfield, winning balls and getting forward to support our attack,” said Feick.

PHS dominated on the attack – holding a 13-2 edge in shots on goal. Panther goalie Sam Meyer made two saves.

“This was a big win for us. Wrightstown is a future [possible] sectional opponent. Wins like this build confidence as a team. We know that we have a lot of room to grow but getting a win while working to develop as a team is a good feeling,” said Feick.
