Shutout of Pinedale puts Powell girls in final eight
After a sluggish start, the Powell High School girls' soccer team spent the second half relentlessly peppering Pinedale with shots in a 4-0 shutout that earned the squad a trip to the state tournament in two weeks. The Panthers also lost an 11-1 decision to Jackson on Friday.
“We came out a little slow and weren't moving as well as we needed to,” said Panther head coach Brad Hammond. “At the half, we talked about making runs and attacking better and we were able to go out and get some goals on the board."
