All good things eventually come to an end. That was the case for the Knoxville Panther varsity girls’ soccer team that finished the best season ever in school history for the sport.
The Panthers strung together 13 wins in a row to end the regular season.
The post season started with a Class 1A tournament game against the Williamsburg Raiders in Williamsburg.
It took two trips to finish the varsity contest. The contest started Tuesday, May 28 but was delayed due to weather.
Knoxville led 1-0 at the time of the suspension on a goal by season long scoring leader Emma DeJoode
When the match resumed Wednesday afternoon the final 12 minutes of the first half had to be played along with 40 minutes in half number two.
The Raiders were on top of their game as they gained a 3-1 win to end the KHS win streak and their season.
Knoxville finished the season at 14-4 overall.
The Panthers opened the season with a mark of 1-3 overall. Then they put together the win streak which included an unbeaten mark in the South Central Conference for the second year in a row.
The Panthers are coached by Matt Ritchhart. The 14 wins is a school record for wins in a regular season. The old mark was 10 set by the 2018 KHS squad.
Seniors on the Knoxville Panther High School roster include Amber Vander Veer, Kelsey Ryan Hailey Turner, Anna Sanderson and Carly Still.
