Slow starts have crushed the Panthers in previous losses and the pattern repeated itself today. Derby was able to possess the ball and get forward in parts of the first half, but that lack of energy lead to communication break downs and a lack of pressure giving Manhattan a few easy goals. The Panthers found themselves down 3-0 at the break.
The second half was a complete turnaround for the Panthers as they controlled a large portion of the second half and kept Manhattan from getting any dangerous looks at goal. The lone Derby goal came out of mass chaos in the box and Connor Blagg found himself in the right place to put the shot away.
Salina South will play host to the Panthers (7-4, 4-1) for a 5:00pm kick tomorrow.
