Eighth grader Avany Yeager had one assist and one goal. Eighth grader Zara Wilson had a finish. 

“In practice we worked on lots of passes, shooting, and crosses,” Yeager said. 

Daniel started the scoring, putting Starr’s Mill up 1-0 early in the match. The lead was then increased by Barch who scored 10 minutes into the opening half. A goal by Wilson increased the lead to 3-0 at the half.

“We have mainly been working on ball control to execute,” Wilson said.

In the second half the Panthers started off with the ball, applying a lot of pressure against the Wildcats and keeping possession of the ball. 

Daniel scored the first score of the second half, moving the lead to 4-0. Yeager would add another goal before Barch ended the game with her second goal of the contest. 

Solid teamwork resulted in a 6-0 shutout win over Whitewater. 

“During the game I saw a lot of what we have been working on in practice, good passing, good ball movement and good aggression,” head coach Mike Meyer said.
