Do not let the score of this one fool you. The first half was anything but a dominant performance for the Panthers as they came out very slow and disconnected. Passes that are normally there were off, first touch was rough, and they really were not applying the pressure you are accustomed to seeing from this squad. Once Derby settled into a rhythm you could see the game turning to their favor. It was the Panthers finally turning on the pressure that would be the difference in this game. With pressure comes set pieces. In this case, corner kicks. Derby would score on three of those tonight. Two off the foot of senior Marah Franke, with Sydney Nilles getting the other. While the first half may have been rough, the second half saw the Panthers really come to life. They had much better possession and control of the ball allowing them to find the seems going forward, keeping Salina Central under pressure for almost the entirety of the second half.
Derby (11-4-1,5-1) will now head into the postseason against a yet to be determined opponent on Tuesday at Panther Stadium.
