The Pelham Panthers defeated Calera 2-0 to remain undefeated in area play 6-0. The Panthers scored 5 minutes into the game when Eusebio Hernandez crossed to a streaking Fabian Calderon on the back side of the goal who beat the keeper. The Panthers would prevent the Eagles from scoring on multiple chances to finish out the half behind great goalkeeping from Braden Troxell and superior defending by the back line of Noah Le, Alejandro Hernandez, Fernando Castaneda, and Alex Hardy.
In the 2nd half the Panthers strike again in the 62 minute when Kenneth Hernandez finds Marvin Ornelas at the top of the box and he slots the ball into the bottom left corner of the goal. Braden Troxell earns the shutout in goal with another clean sheet and ended the night with 6 saves. Pelham scored 29 goals in 6 area games and gave up 0 goals in those games. Both are school records.
The Panthers will host the first round of the AHSAA playoffs next week.
