Watervliet High School
Fennville High School
The Watervliet Panthers lost a tough game to the Fennville Blackhawks tonight. The Panthers started strong in the first quarter matching the Blackhawks basket for basket. As Fennville started to heat up from beyond the arc, they hit a fade away 3 pt shot at the buzzer to take a 5 pt lead on the Panthers into halftime. Coming into the third quarter it was much of the same as they exchanged baskets the whole time. Once again the Blackhawks hit a fadeaway buzzer beater to take a 7 point lead into the fourth quarter. As the fourth quarter began, the Panthers could not match the hot shooting of Fennville as they pulled away to a 63-47 victory.
Strong performances for the Panthers were:
Mark Myers 11 pts
Dan Cluster 9 pts
Sheldon Tobar 9 pts
The Panthers look to bounce back fast as they take on the Bangor Vikings this Friday at Panther Gymnasium as the Panthers welcome the Little Panthers boys and girls basketball programs along with the 25th reunion of the 1992 boys conference championship team.
