The Dr. Phillips High girls soccer team — our Observer Preps Team of the Week — is off to the best start in program history.
Following a 4-0 victory over rival Olympia Nov. 30 in the "Friendship Cup" game, the Panthers are now 7-0 — the victory also represented the team's fifth shutout in seven matches.
In total, Dr. Phillips scored three victories this week. The Panthers defeated Windermere High Nov. 27, 4-1, and cruised past Evans the next night, 8-0.
Individual highlights include a pair of goals against the Titans and a hat-trick against the Trojans for Chloe Washington; Tessa Alexander and Ana Gomes each had two goals against Evans; Carmel de Oliveira had two assists against Windermere and Stephanie Oliveira scored twice this week. Goalkeeper Launa Foreman registered two shutouts.
In seven regular season wins (including one forfeit), the Panthers have outscored opponents 26-0.
Dr. Phillips will play three more games next week, beginning the week with a home match Dec. 5 against Ocoee and then hitting the road for games Dec. 7 at Wekiva and Dec. 8 at East Ridge.
