Kasey Lonergan found the back of the net late in the game to end a long-running stalemate and hand the Plymouth girls soccer team a 2-1 win against rival Sheboygan Falls on Tuesday.
“Kasey Lonergan’s goal was beautiful,” Panthers coach Brad Feick said in a statement.
Lonergan, who put the ball in the goal off an assist from Mackenzie Haese in the game’s 64th minute, snapped a stalemate that had persisted since midway through the first half, when Sheboygan Falls’ Becky Raeder tied the game at 1-1 off an assist by Nicole Preder.
Plymouth’s Erin Falk scored the opening goal in the fifth minute.
“I thought overall it was a well-played game,” Sheboygan Falls coach Brian Mentink said. “They made one more play than we did, but I thought it was pretty evenly matched.”
Both team’s played almost even all game long. Plymouth hoisted six shots on goal to Sheboygan Falls’ seven. Panthers goalkeeper Sophie Hau had six saves, with Samantha Oppeneer collecting five in the Falcons’ net.
“It was a battle tonight. …” Feick said, noting playing into the wind in the first half was a challenge. “Just a great win against a really good team.”
New Holstein 1, Campbellsport 0
Danielle Brenner put the Huskies (2-0, 1-0 EWC) on the board in the 55th minute from 20 yards out off an assist by Karli Fannin, and New Holstein goalkeeper Alicia Kahl collected three saves to help preserve the shutout.
New Holstein out-shot Campbellsport 22-9 and allowed just three shots on goal.
“Campbellsport really came to play tonight and they battled us hard all game,” New Holstein coach Nate Laabs said, noting the Cougars’ defense foiled the Huskies through much of the opening half.
“We passed much better in the second half, and Daniel Brenner really took the game over,” Laabs said. “She completely controlled the middle of the field and really sparked our offense.”
Ozaukee 5, Lutheran/Kohler 0
Brooke Bares and Natalie Clark both scored a pair of goals and Kaylee Klopp collected two saves in the net to help hand the defending Division 3 state champions the Central Lakeshore Conference shutout on the road.
Bares scored both of her goals in the first half, with Clark adding one more before intermission to send Ozaukee (3-2-2, 2-1 CLC) into intermission with a 3-0 cushion.
Emily Janke scored Ozaukee’s first goal in the second half, and Clark followed up with her second score to cap the win.
Sheboygan Lutheran/Kohler falls to 1-1-1 in the CLC with the loss.
“We hope to put together a string of some wins here,” Ozaukee coach Eric Liebergen said, crediting an aggresive Warriors offense with securing the win. Emma Yanke and Clark each had an assist.
Sheb. Christian 6, Random Lake 1
The Eagles headed into halftime up 1-0, but a scoring avalanche in the second period put the game away.
Hannah Modahl, who finished the game with a hat trick, sparked Sheboygan Christian’s offense with a goal off an Allison Scheidt assist in the first period.
Random Lake tied the game in the second half when Taylor Jacob put in an unassisted goal.
But then Modahl scored two goals to put the Eagles ahead for good, and Cori Flispe, Hope Landgraf and Allison Gartman each helped widen the gap.
Scheidt finished with three assists for Christian, and Carissa Wisse and Megan Klompnhouwer each had one.
Eagles goalkeeper Liz Smies had one save.
Howards Grove 1, Oostburg 0
Brittany Schaller scored the Tigers’ winning goal four minutes into the second half.
