The win was the Panthers’ fourth straight and upped their record to 11-7. The Lady Pirates, who have seven freshmen and no seniors on their varsity, fell to 4-13.

PHS dominated from the outset, fueled by their full-court press and half-court trap which forced 16 turnovers in the first half, including nine in the opening quarter. The Panthers, scoring several easy baskets in transition off steals, blew out to a 23-2 lead after one quarter and built the margin to a whopping 44-8 at halftime.

The Panthers had 17 steals, led by Jordyn Pieper and Kaily Moegenburg with four each and Morgan Lisowe, three. Moegenburg had a fine overall game as she also paced the team in scoring with 14 points and rebounds, seven.

Pieper had a team-high three assists. Lisowe contributed 10 points off the bench, all in the first half. All 10 Panthers tallied points. Olivia Jankowski had five boards and eight points in reserve.

“We did what we should do against a [young] team like that. We took care of business. We played well,” said Panther head coach Brad Shutter.

“Kaily had another strong overall game. Morgan had her best game of the season. Olivia did a nice job inside and made some nice post moves. Everyone contributed.”

JUNIOR VARSITY GAME

The Panther JV team stretched its winning streak to 10 with a 77- 15 drubbing of the Lady Pirates. PHS, 16-2, was led on offense by Kalei Hering and Lydia Rhude with 17 points each. Abi Srmz and Skyler Gosse netted 14 and 10, reby spectively.

Rhude and Megan Goeser paced PHS in rebounds with eight each. Emily Majerus led in assists with an impressive 12. Gosse had a team-high five steals.

“Our defense played great. We had everyone score and get at least one rebound,” said PHS coach Mike Gumm.
