The high press of East early in the game was too much for Derby, allowing a goal in the early minutes of the contest. From there East controlled the rest of the first half with the Panthers not even getting a shot, at frame or otherwise. East would add another goal towards the end of the half giving them the 2-0 lead at the break.
Derby came out hard in the second with Saul Muñoz finding the net just two minutes into the second half. Derby started showing some life and excitement they did not have in the first half. But the struggles would slowly make there way back. East would be awarded a PK but not convert, only to add another goal after a poor clearance from the Panthers, giving them back their two goal lead that they would not relinquish.
Derby (11-2-2, 4-0-1) has one game remaining at Salina Central tomorrow. A game that has seeding implications for regionals that start next week.
