The nonconference win over their county rivals upped the Panthers’ record to 11-1-1 and stretched their unbeaten streak to 11. The Falcons fell to 6-4-1.

PHS is ranked No. 7 in the Wisconsin Soccer Coaches Association Division 3 poll.

“This was a tough game, coming at the end of our fivegames in-eight-days stretch. Every time we play Falls we know that it is going to be a battle. We were pleased with the result,” said Panther head coach Brad Feick.

PHS dominated the match – holding an 11-1 edge in shots on goal. Panther goalie Sam Meyer made one save and Falcon goalie Kayla Zeier had seven.

Carly Lilek had an assist with a nice pass across the face of the goal.

PHS went up 2-0 in the 10th minute on Emma Welsch’s goal, assisted by Sydney Robinson. The Panthers led 2-0 at halftime.

Martell and Lilek finished off the scoring with a goal each in the second half, respectively. Robinson had a team-high two assists. Maggie Munson also had an assist.

“We had some tired legs. We still were able to possess and create opportunities but we didn’t play as crisply as we had the previous two games. We were able to keep Falls from creating opportunities that they were able to put on goal,” said Feick.

XAVIER MATCH

The Panthers knocked off state-ranked Appleton Xavier, 2-0, Saturday afternoon in Plymouth. The Hawks, 7-3-2, are ranked No. 9 in the D-3 poll.

“This was a great game – our most complete game of the season. We knew that we would need to play a very disciplined and aggressive game to earn a win,” said Feick.

“I was very pleased with how we defended as a team.”

Robinson scored the first goal, assisted by Ellie Welsch. Martell tallied the second goal on an assist by Robinson.

PHS led 9-8 in shots on goal. Meyer had one save and Xavier goalie Christian Casimir had seven.
