Freshman David Lopez scored the first goal as he entered the six yard box on the right side. Kevin rolled and rolled toward the second goal and then Rowan Linhart had a nice PK for the third goal, coming in the 69th minute. Per Head Coach Charles Noonan, the team was focused on some items they feel will be important for the Disstrict game on Monday and he thought the execution was pretty good. The second half was when things fell into place regarding their training effort until the game got to 3-0 and we started getting some guys some time off and got some important minutes for some other players. STLHSsports talked to Coach Noonan earlier this month about the success the program is having (now 8-4) and junior GK Will Schenk’s role in that success.
Sam Travis scored for the Panthers, assisted by Davis Herbst.
The team is seeded #3 in Class 3 District 5 and will open against #2 Parkway Central on Monday at 7:00 pm. #1 seed Ft. Zumwalt East hosts and face #4 St. Charles at 5pm Monday. The Missouri HS Soccer Coaches Power Ranking index has St. Charles at #18 and Ft. Zumwalt East at #19 but the others have broken into the top 25.
For the Panthers, Class 4 District 7 has them facing #1 seed St Dominic on Monday while #2 Liberty will face #3 seed Zumwalt West.
