The Panthers made the short bus ride to partake in the Jan. 13-15 Prosper Invitational and finished in third-place.

Head coach Paul Kunkel said, “I thought it was a good showing for this team to show we can go out and compete. A third-place showing and a winning record (3-2) at this point is exciting.”

The Panthers kicked off tourney play Jan. 13 with a 1-0 win over Burkburnett, thanks to a penalty kick from Juan Vazquez. Pedro Diaz and Jerrod McCann combined on the shutout in goal.

Jonas Harvey and Victor Hernandez controlled the middle portion of the field.

The following day the Panthers pulled out a 3-2 win over Wichita Falls Hirschi, thanks to scores from Vazquez and Hernandez.

They closed out pool play the same day with a tough 8-2 defeat to host Prosper. Josh Martin scored both goals off assists from Justin Scott.

With that 2-1 finish the Panthers qualified for the Saturday’s semifinals, where they dropped a 5-1 match to Argyle. Vazquez had the goal off the assist from Brandon Guerro.

That dropped them into a third-place match with Brownwood. The Panthers responded with a 5-4 victory on penalty kicks during an overtime shootout.

Diaz came up with a big stop on a penalty kick in the second half and two in the shootout.

Putting points on the board in the shootout were Vazquez, Harvey, Hernandez, Antonio Pineda and Esteban Marquez.

Princeton traveled Jan. 18 to play Kemp and will compete Thursday through Saturday at the Kennedale Invitational.

The Panthers open pool play 8:30 a.m. Thursday versus Alvarado.
