Game Recap

The Panthers JV conceded their 100% winning record but remained unbeaten with a creditable draw away to a good Cimarron-Memorial (CM) team. CM had the better of the first 10 minutes as the Panthers failed to establish any meaningful possession. However, they worked themselves into the game and after 15 minutes Lamar Hayes scored another breakaway after an intelligent through ball from Ricky Gray. Ten minutes later Gray got on the scoresheet himself as his strength was too much for the CM defenders and goalkeeper when he crashed the ball over the line after an incisive 30 yard ball from Conner Wattles. CM pulled one back just before the half but the Panthers were good for the lead. Half time 2-1.

The Panthers dominated the second half for long spells but were unable to find any more goals. CM equalized half way through the half and the Panthers put them under an onslaught in the last 10 minutes in an attempt to get the winner. Hayes made an excellent run through the defense down the right and pulled the ball across the goal to the waiting Gray who unfortunately mishit his shot from 6 yards and screwed the ball wide. Gray tried his best to make amends for the miss by putting Hayes in with an excellent chip over the defense but Hayes was unable to fully control the ball and his shot went wide. Gray dribbled two players and then laid the ball off to Luke McGee who hit a thunderbolt against the crossbar from 22 yards with the goalkeeper well beaten. The winning goal didn’t come but the Panthers were good for the draw in a tough game. Final score 2-2,
