The Panthers and Huskies played to a 1-1 tie in New Holstein. With one game remaining in the 12-game EWC schedule, Plymouth is 9-0-2. New Holstein is 7-1-2 with two games to go.
A Plymouth win at home against Campbellsport (2-7 EWC) on Thursday earns it an outright conference title.
The Huskies and Panthers scored within five minutes of each other. New Holstein’s Laiken Meyer scored off a Hailee Olson assist in the 47th minute, but Liz Fohr tied the game for the Panthers in the 52nd minute.
New Holstein outshot Plymouth 24-9.
“Both teams played very hard, and it was a very well played game,” said Huskies coach Nate Laabs. “It was disappointing for us to have so many offensive opportunities, but not be able put more of them away.”

Abby Mauer put the Falcons ahead in just the second minute, then added an insurance goal later in the first half and Sheboygan Falls stayed ahead with the EWC shutout.
Tiffany Fischer assisted the first early goal, and Morgan DePagter lent an assist on Mauer’s second score for Falls (10-3-6, 4-2-3 EWC).
Asha Ritchie made four saves inside Sheboygan Falls’ net.
“To get that goal right away was good,” Falls coach Brian Mentink said, noting his team has struggled scoring of late but found a lift with the quick goal.
