Panthers cruise to fourth straight win

CAMPBELLSPORT – Plymouth’s tenacious defense keyed a 55-39 girls basketball win over host Campbellsport Thursday night.

The Panthers remained in sole possession of first place in the Eastern Wisconsin Conference as they improved to 4-0 (4-2 overall). PHS has won four in a row. The Cougars dropped to 2-2 in the EWC (3-2 overall).

“We had a good overall effort and everyone contributed. We had very good balance on offense,” said Panther head coach Brad Shutter.

The Panthers’ trapping defense forced 21 turnovers, many of which led to points. PHS had 14 steals, led by Gwen Streblow and Olivia Jankowski with four each and Kaily Moegenburg, three.

“Kaily did a really good job at the top of our 1-3-1 trap. She made it very hard for their guards to make passes over her. She had several deflections,” Shutter said.

Moegenburg, a senior forward, had a strong all-around game. She had a team-high 12 points, 12 rebounds and five assists. Jordyn Pieper also had 12 points to go with seven boards. Streblow contributed three assists.

“Jordyn had a real nice, solid game. Nikki Reil did a good job against their post player [Haley Feucht],” Shutter said.

Pieper erupted for eight points in the fourth quarter to spark the

Panthers as they outscored the

Cougars 15-9.

PHS led 14-7 after one quarter and was ahead the rest of the way.

JV, FRESHMAN GAMES

PHS jumped out to a 17-7 lead after one quarter to fuel a 44-36 victory in the JV contest. The Panthers raised their EWC mark to 4-0 (5-1 overall).

“This was a test for us – proving that we can win a close game,” said Panther coach Mike Gumm.

Lydia Rhude sparked the PHS attack with 18 points and Emily Majerus added nine. Abi Smrz and Majerus led in rebounds with seven each. Majerus had a team-high six assists and seven steals. Kalei Hering contributed five steals. The PHS freshmen defeated the

Cougars 33-22, to improve to 3-1 in the EWC (4-1 overall).

“We had a great team effort against a good Campbellsport team,” said PHS coach Britta Dellger.

“Brooke Frederickson really took over and was the spark we needed on offense.”

In earlier games this season, PHS defeated Sheboygan South (37-21), Sheboygan Falls (39-37 in overtime) and Kewaskum (36-26) and lost to Waupun (46-25).
