PHS raised its first-place Eastern Wisconsin Conference record to 5-1 (7-4 overall). The Huskies fell to 1-5 in the EWC (3-5 overall).

Moegenburg had a doubledouble with a team-high 21 points and 13 rebounds. She was a redhot 80 percent (8 of 10) from the field overall, including 4-for-6 on three-pointers. Moegenburg also led the Panthers in assists with four and steals, three.

The Panthers built a 25-16 halftime lead and then staved off a second-half comeback by the Huskies. New Holstein outscored PHS 29-24 in the second half.

Freshman forward Gwen Streblow contributed 14 points, including two treys, and had two steals for the Panthers. Kaylee Kuhn dished out three assists.

The Panthers buried seven three-point shots. PHS struggled from the free-throw line – going 8-for-20, compared with New Holstein’s 19-for-31.

“It wasn’t a pretty game but we won,” said Panther head coach Brad Shutter whose team committed 23 turnovers.

“We got off to a good start on offense. We shot the ball well from the outside in the first half against their 1-3-1 zone.

“Kaily had probably her best game of the season. Gwen played a real good game. Nikki [Reil] did a good job on defense inside,” Shutter said.

Laiken Meyer keyed the Huskies’ offense with 12 points.


Kalei Hering scored 18 points and Lydia Rhude had 14 to lead a balanced attack as the Panthers cruised to an 83-27 junior varsity win. PHS hiked its EWC mark to 6-0 (9-2 overall).

Sophie Albert and Megan Goeser chipped in with 12 and 10 points, respectively, for PHS.

Emily Majerus had an impressive 10 assists and 11 steals to lead the team. Albert paced PHS in rebounds with six and Abi Smrz had five.

“Our defense played hard and we had all nine players score again. We are playing well as a team,” said PHS coach Mike Gumm.
