Panthers cruise, gain share of EWC lead

KEWASKUM – The Plymouth Panthers grabbed a share of the Eastern Wisconsin Conference girls basketball lead with a 68- 34 thumping of Kewaskum here Thursday night.

PHS (10-7 overall), which has won three straight, and Two Rivers hold down first with 9-2 records. Two Rivers dropped out of the sole lead after a 54-48 loss to Sheboygan Falls Thursday night.

The Panthers mounted an 18-8 lead after one quarter and never looked back. The Indians dropped to 0-10 in the EWC (1-14 overall).

Senior forward Kaily Moegenburg led a balanced PHS attack with 14 points. The Panthers had four players scoring in double figures. Moegenburg had an outstanding overall performance as she also led PHS in rebounds with 11, assists with four and steals, five.

Jordyn Pieper contributed four steals, three assists and 10 points for the Panthers. Olivia Jankowski contributed three steals, seven boards and 10 points off the bench. Gwen Streblow chipped in with 11 points.

The Panthers had a season-high 19 steals as they forced a whopping 37 turnovers, many of which led to points. Plymouth’s half-court traps caused many of the turnovers.

“It was a great overall game by everyone. Everyone contributed and everyone scored,” said Panther head coach Brad Shutter.

“Overall, Kaily had a great performance. She was very productive inside [on offense], scoring a lot off offensive rebounds and steals. She creates a lot of problems at the top of our 1-3-1 trap.

“Olivia had her best overall game of the season. Olivia and

Morgan Lisowe played well off the bench,” said Shutter.

Lisowe had six points and five boards.

“It was nice that Two Rivers lost and that we’re tied for first but now we control our own destiny,” said the coach.

The Panthers will win the outright EWC title if they win their remaining three league games, including a Feb. 21 showdown at home versus Two Rivers. PHS lost to the Purple Raiders in their first meeting this season.

JUNIOR VARSITY GAME

The Panther JV breezed to a 64-

35 rout. PHS, which has won nine in a row, upped its first-place EWC mark to 11-0 (15-2 overall). Kalei Hering led PHS in scoring with 19 points, followed by Lydia Rhude with 15 and Emily Majerus, 11.

Rhude and Majerus posted double-doubles as Rhude had a team-high 10 rebounds and Majerus led in assists with an impressive 10. Hayley Mueller and Majerus pulled down eight boards each.

Majerus and Rhude paced the team in steals with three apiece.

“We played well as a team. I am proud of how well we play as a team,” said PHS head coach Mike Gumm.
