The Ships hiked their record to 5-2 while the Panthers slipped to 5-3.

Manitowoc broke the contest open with a 13-2 run to finish the game. Zac Cain’s steal and ensuing layup pulled PHS to within 53- 50 with 2:20 left. The Ships then went into a delay game the rest of the way which forced PHS to foul and Manitowoc made 13 of 14 free throws the rest of the way.

“We didn’t get to the rim enough and we needed to get more offensive rebounds [PHS had seven],” said PHS head coach Butch Cain. “We needed to get to the foul line more.

“They [Ships] played pretty well. We need to shore up some things.

“Dominic [Bocchini] did a nice job of distributing the ball and he knocked down a few shots. Nick Casper attacked the basket well,” said coach Cain.

The coach was pleased that his team came back after trailing 16-5 midway through the first quarter. The Ships drilled four three-pointers, including two by Tyler Thiers, to build the 11-point edge.

The Panthers responded with an 11-2 run the rest of the first period, led by Bocchini who scored two baskets on driving layups. Casper’s trey climaxed the surge.

Bocchini and Zac Cain paced PHS in scoring with 12 points each. Bocchini, a senior point guard, also had a team-high five rebounds, two steals and five assists.

Senior Adam Bonk ignited the Ships’ offense with 21 points.

Cody Kuhn’s 18 points sparked the PHS junior varsity to a 55-42 win. PHS is 5-4 on the season. Derek Schweiger added 11 points for the winners.
