Western High School
Palo Verde High School
The Panthers JV staged a comeback victory in a game that they dominated almost 100%. Five minutes in the Panthers were stunned by a 30 yard bullet that found the roof of the net. However, this was all that Western had and the Panthers dominated the first half but were unable to take any of the chances they created.
The Panthers came out strongly in the second half and took only 10 minutes to set the record straight. Alijah Posada showed that the Panthers also have a long-range threat when he volleyed impressively from 22 yards and left the goalkeeper with no chance. Five minutes later, Conner Schutze scored an excellent headed goal from a perfect Luke McGee corner. The Panthers continually knocked on the door but could not extend the lead. At the other end, Western was unable to get behind the excellent Panthers back line. This victory was far more comfortable than the scoreline suggests but was enough for the Panthers to hand Western their first defeat of the season. Final score 2-1
