On Friday, the Lady Panthers played host to the Danville Ironmen.  Danville, who are out of PIAA’s District IV, entered this matchup against the Panthers with a 15-2 record.  Their two losses were by a combined six goals.  The Ironmen fell 16-11 to Trinity (Camp Hill) on March 30th.  They also dropped an 11-10 heartbreaker to Lake Lehman on April 16th.  The Lady Ironmen were accustomed to scoring 20 goals per game and giving up only five.  On paper, it looked as if this would be a competitive test for the Panthers.
