The Starr’s Mill’s Lady Panthers played against the Whitewater High School Lady Wildcats in the state semifinals.  The Lady Wildcats lost earlier in the season to the Lady Panthers and the Lady Wildcats looked eager to even the series. This showed immediately as the Lady Wildcats were controlling the early stages of the match and slotted home a goal in the 9th minute to take a 1 – 0 lead.  While the Lady Panthers looked to make a run, the Lady Wildcats put another goal on the board with 19 minutes to go in the half.  The score remained 2 – 0 through the end of the half.

As the second half got underway, the Lady Panthers pushed a little more, but were unable to come up with a goal.  The Lady Wildcats did put another on the board with 32 minutes remaining in the match to take a 3 – 0 lead.  The Lady Panthers were unable to put a goal across, although they tried, and the final score ended up 3 – 0 in favor of the Lady Wildcats.  For the Lady Panthers, Seniors Sara Biddle, Macey Voorhies, Makira Walton, Kirsten Oates and Lauren Avidano all played well in their final match and these Seniors will be missed!!

Go Panthers!

The Starr’s Mill Lady Panthers hosted the Locust Grove Lady Wildcats in the first round of the State playoffs.  From the opening kickoff, the Lady Wildcats were on the defensive as the Lady Panthers dominated possession and looked to score.  With the Lady Wildcats dropping nine to eleven players back on defense, the Lady Panthers found it difficult to find space.  Shots were taken, but none got through until the 29th minute when Macey Voorhies netted the goal off the feed from Sofia Varmeziar.  The Lady Panthers 1 – 0 lead stood through halftime as no other shots found their way into the goal.

In the second half, the Lady Panthers continued their dominance, but were better able to attack the Lady Wildcats defense.  With numerous scoring chances, the Lady Panthers were only able to find the back of the net twice more as Ali Rumpel and Sara Evans scored the goals off of the assist of Chloe Thompson for each.

With the win, the Lady Panthers advance to the second round of the playoffs next week – the Sweet Sixteen!

The Starr’s Mill Lady Panthers hosted the McIntosh High School Lady Chiefs. In a match to determine the Region championship, the Lady Panthers took early control of possession, with the midfield of Macey Voorhies and Rachel Davison leading the charge. Zoey Stellman played very well, keeping the Lady Chiefs out of the net with some key saves. With 22 minutes remaining in the match, the Lady Chiefs scored off of a corner kick to take a 1 – 0 lead. Not to be denied, the Lady Panthers answered with 14 minutes remaining on a beautifully slotted ball from Sara Evans that Chloe Thompson put in the back of the net. The score remained 1 – 1 to end the half.

In the second half, the play was mainly in the midfield, with both teams working to gain an advantage and score. However, neither team could capitalize and the end of regulation finished in a 1 – 1 tie. Overtime proved to be no different – no team could gain an advantage and the match would be determined via penalty kicks. In penalty kicks, the Lady Chiefs went first and scored and then Rachel Davison scored for the Lady Panthers, the next Lady Chief scored and the Lady Panthers did not convert. The third Lady Chief scored, and Meritt Parker scored for the Lady Panthers. The fourth Lady Chief scored, and when the next Lady Panther did not, the Lady Chiefs won the game on PKs 4 – 2.

The Lady Panthers are now 9–2–5 on the season.
