Soccer wins vs. Carlisle, Grinnell

There was no time to rest for the Knoxville Panther soccer team once the season opened.

The Panthers opened with their first three contests at home.

Monday, April 7, they hosted the Carlisle Wildcats in historic Ken Locke Stadium. The Panthers whitewashed the Wildcats 4-0.

The very next night the Panthers were back at the friendly confines of Ken Locke Stadium and they topped the Grinnell Tigers in Little Hawkeye Conference play 3-2.

Two days after that, April 10, the Panthers hosted the Albia Blue Demons and lost 6-2.

In the opener the Panthers relied on a strong defense to limit Carlisle to just six shots on goal, while Knoxville kept the Wildcat goalkeeper busy defending 18 shots on goal.

Tyler Wadle, Knoxville’s goalkeeper pitched a shutout against Carlisle.

Knoxville had two goals by Alex Dye and one each by Gerrit Davis and David Dye to gain the win.

In the win over the Grinnell Tigers Knoxville’s Wadle was challenged with 12 shots. The Tigers managed two goals, but it wasn’t enough as the Panthers won 3-2.

Colin Moyle, Gustavo Escorcia and Douglas Black each had one goal for the winning Panther squad.

Alex Dye and David Dye each had one assist in the contest for coach Dylan Mick’s Panther squad.

The tight contest with Grinnell wasn’t decided until Moyle ended the contest with a goal in overtime.

The loss dropped the Tigers to 0-3 overall.

Kenny Clark and Josh Hoffman had one goal apiece for the Tigers.

In the third match of the week Knoxville had two goals by Alex Dye, but it wasn’t enough as Albia tallied six goals. Gerrit Davis had one assist for the black and gold.

One of Dye’s goals came on a penalty kick.

Albia’s defense limited the Panthers to just six shots on goal.

The victory put Albia at 2-0 for the year.
