After coming up with a big win against the Sayre Redskins last week, the North Penn-Mansfield Lady Panthers soccer team fell short in their two home contests this week. The Panthers lost an extremely close game to the Williamson Warriors by a score of 2-1 and another tough home game against Meadowbrook Christian 4-1.
In their contest against the Williamson Warriors, the Panthers played a strong game defensively. They were able to keep the Lady Warriors team from coming up with any big runs in the first half until they scored on a hectic play at the net with about 10 minutes left to play in the half. The Panthers team showed some resilience in the closing moments before halftime, with Gracie Snyder coming up with a big goal to tie the game with only 59 seconds left in the half.
During halftime the Panthers honored their seniors for their annual Seniors Night presentation before kicking off the second half action.
The Panthers continued to play strong defense but struggled to put anything together on offense in the second half. At the halfway point in the second half, Kristen Green of Williamson was able to score the final goal of the night, and the Panthers fell by a score of 2-1. The Lady Panthers racked up nine shots on goal, three corner kicks and keeper Sara Swingle totaled four saves.
In their second matchup of the week, the Lady Panthers hosted the Meadowbrook Christian soccer team. The Panthers played even with the Meadowbrook squad throughout, with the Panthers having 12 shots on goal to Meadowbrooks 18. The Lady Panthers squad was just unable to convert on the opportunities and fell by the eventual score of 4-1. Aleiah Jackson scored the lone goal for the Panthers in the contest.
The North Penn-Mansfield Panthers currently sit with a record of 4-10-1 and travel to North East Bradford to try and claim a win.
