Everything you could ask for in a regional final is what you got tonight. A big, physical battle played out from whistle to whistle by both teams, each able to get a foothold and control different points of the game. Derby was the better team when going to goal as they had two go off the cross bar, were able to get ahold of both rebounds, only to have the rebounds saved by the Manhattan keeper. On the other side, Manhattan was able to get in and get off some shots, but most were either blocked or not dangerous at frame. Regulation would end scoreless and send the game to a golden goal overtime. Four overtime’s later and still no score meant penalty kicks would decide the match. In the end Manhattan would put away three to only two for the Panthers, bringing Derby’s season to an end.
The Panthers played a fantastic match tonight capping off what was a great season that ended with a 12-5-1 record.
