Fennville High School
Watervliet High School
The Panthers and Blackhawks squared off tonight both a little short handed. Both squads looked a little different from their previous game played back on January 9th. The Blackhawks won that first game 71-36.
The Panthers played with a lot of courage and grit tonight out scoring the Blackhawks 17-15 in the final frame to capture its 16th win of the season. Down as much as 6 points in the final two minutes, the Panthers played some tough team defense and turned it into some easy lay ups and several free throw opportunities. Garrett Matthews was 9 for 12 from the free throw line in the final frame to help with the victory. Eric Kehrer, Austin Roberts, and QuShawn Jackson were very strong in the paint on the defensive end and on the boards. Omar Cardoso got the start tonight for the Panthers and played his best game of the year. Cubby Aldrich continued to run the team from the point guard position and keep the team on point. The JV Panthers will host Bangor Thursday night at 7:00. Nice work Panthers!! 1,2,3….17
