The Falcons of East Kentwood visited the Panthers for the second OK Red Conference game for both teams. The Panthers needed a win tonight to stay in the race for the title after barely losing to the Rams last week. The Panthers came out confident in their abilities and moved the ball well to put a lot of pressure on the Falcons. The momentum shifted quickly as the Falcons counter attack easily scored on a mistake from the keeper. The Panthers were able to return to their possession game and connected a brilliant header from Angel Garcia with the assist from Chase Laarman. The second half was the same story as the Panthers were able to move the ball to create the chances around the Falcons goal. The Panther second goal was developed from Draikeś effort to move the ball onto Blake Barrios. Blake cleanly finished it to take the lead. With barely two minutes passed, another scramble on the ball around their net gave the Panthers the third goal of the night. Gama Emiliano calmly placed the loose ball in the upper right corner of the goal. The Falcons did not stop playing and were able to score with five minutes left in the game. The Panthers secured the victory and will need to prepare for the Dawgs of Grandville on Thursday.
