The Panthers hiked their EWCleading record to 5-0 (7-1 overall) and ran their winning streak to seven. The Cougars fell to 2-3 in the league (5-3 overall).

PHS used a 9-0 spurt on three straight three-pointers to close out the first quarter and build a 17-8 lead. Eric Majerus, Tom Jankowski and Eric Nygaard sank one trey each, respectively, during the run.

The Panthers outscored the Cougars 13-6 in the second quarter to complete their 22-6 tear and build a 30-14 halftime lead. Kollin Neils’ three-point play off a nifty baseline drive kick-started the PHS offense in the second period.

Brady Grapentine contributed three assists for PHS. Collin Denzin paced the team in rebounds with eight and Zac Cain had seven.

“Campbellsport gave us a different look defensively than what we’ve seen so far this season. I thought the players handled it fairly well,” said PHS head coach Jason Duff.

“Our starters played well and we got a nice lift off the bench from some players as well. I thought Zac Cain made a couple of nice plays.

“Matt Olig also came in and did a good job inside. Brady Grapentine did a good job of passing, said Duff.
