Derby was a much improved squad tonight in a match where the final score does not do justice to the product the Panthers put on the field. Derby gave up the first goal yet again, but were able to answer from Diego Vaquera and even the match going into the break. Washburn scored early in the second and Derby answered with what appeared to be the equalizer, only to have a handball called first, which nullified the goal. The ensuing penalty shot was saved to keep Derby off the board and the momentum turned back in favor of the Junior Blues. A nice shot from a free kick all but sealed the victory for Washburn though Derby would get a few more dangerous chances.
Derby (3-4-2, 1-1-1) has one more battle on Thursday against rival Campus at Panther Soccer Complex.
