The last home game of the season for the Panthers. Tonight they were hosting a team in Maize that Derby managed to beat twice last year with a pair of 1-0 wins, so games between these two are never easy. Derby’s fast start would be the difference in this match as they scored in the 4′ and you could immediately see the field open up. Another goal just three minutes later and the Panthers were rolling.They would put in one more in the first for a 3-0 lead at the break. Chalk up another for the Derby defense as they did not allow a single shot this evening. As dominate as the Panthers appeared in the first half, the game was actually pretty even. Derby was able to open up the second half even more controlling more than two-thirds of the possession and spending more time on the ball to find better chances at goal. Two more goals in the second half gave Derby (13-2) the 5-0 win with just one game to play, a Thursday match at Campus.
