Panther soccer wins first game

Panther Teegan Guerra scored three goals and Jillian Reimer and Brissa Leyva contributed two goals apiece to spark Great Bend past Hays Thomas More Prep 11-1 in Monday’s non-league soccer game.

Ninth-graders scored six goals and provided four assists, offering optimism for the future.

“Teegan Guerra with a ‘hat trick” and an assist is a sweet accomplishment for a freshman,” said Great Bend coach Noel Rodriguez. “We had a lot of high school career firsts today. Four of our freshmen finding the net for their first varsity goals is special. Two freshmen linked up to start our scoring.”

Also scoring goals were Yosmeiri Valdez, Natalia Rodriguez, Greidys Moreno and Evelyn Luna. Dishing out two assists apiece were Reimer, Leyva and Yesenia Pulido.

“Jill Reimer and Brissa Leyva both with two goas and a couple assist is big,” Rodriguez said. “Our defense did a great job working together to concede one goal off of a free kick. I'm proud of the win. We’ll keep pushing for more.”

LIBERAL 7, PANTHERS 0 – Liberal shut out the Panthers 7-0 in Tuesday’s Western Athletic Conference opener. Liberal’s junior varsity won 2-1.

“It was a great game to let us know that we need to continue to work and clean up things,” Rodriguez said.

The Panthers (1-3, 0-1 WAC) play Garden City (2-1) at home Thursday.
