“Our passing was very good, as well as our hustle off the ball,” said Panther girls’ coach Brett Hanlin. “We had three times the number of shots (that Pinedale had). We dominated the game.”
Jessica Harris and Jessica Flores each put goals in net to account for Powell’s goals in the contest. The goals ended a five-game scoring drought for the Panthers, who last found the back of the net on March 19 in a 4-0 win over Rawlins at the season-opening Jamboree.
Powell improved to 2-6-1 on the season with the victory.
Hanlin was also pleased with his team’s performance against perennial powerhouse Jackson.
“The second half against Jackson, we played really well, probably our best half of soccer this year,” Hanlin said. “We had opportunities, but we need some more practice in finishing.”
The Panthers had originally been scheduled to host Lander on Tuesday, but that contest was postponed until May 3. Powell’s next action will come on Friday, April 29, when the Panthers travel to Park County rival Cody for a Northwest Quadrant contest.
That game will also mark the start of a hectic stretch of the schedule. The Panthers will play five games in a 10-day stretch to wrap up the regular season.
