2 4   -

First league match of the season coincided with the coldest game of the season. The Panthers came out fast and hard with a high energy level from the start. They controlled a large majority of the first half, even scoring an early 12’ goal for the quick lead. Salina South would get their chances as well, getting in behind the Panther defense. The Cougars would even the match in the 25’ on just such an opportunity, on one of only three shots allowed to them on goal.
The second half is where Derby was just unstoppable. Four goals in the second half, all assisted, were very well executed transitions. Some of the connecting passes that were near misses in the first were connecting in the second and the Panthers were finishing those opportunities.
Derby (7-2-1,1-0) will play a pair of games next week. The first will be at Andover on Monday with a home game against Hutchinson on Thursday.
