The Panthers’ full-court press and half-court defense forced 10 turnovers in the opening half and PHS converted several of them into points.

The Panthers broke the game open with a 10-4 spurt in the first five minutes of the second quarter to mount a 27-12 ad- vantage. Emily Majerus, Olivia Jankowski, Hannah Mauk, Jordyn Pieper and Morgan Lisowe contributed two points each for PHS in the run.

Pieper’s driving layup off a fast break capped off Plymouth’s first-half scoring.

Plymouth’s defense forced eight turnovers in the third quarter as PHS outscored the Indians 10-4 to go up 42-21. For the game, Kewaskum was guilty of 23 turnovers, compared to only 11 by PHS.

“We had a good, all-around, solid game for everyone,” said Panther head coach Brad Shutter. “It was a good bounce-back win.

“Defensively, we brought up our intensity level in the first half and made it difficult for them to get into their stuff [on offense] and we capitalized a lot [off turnovers].”

Jankowski, a junior forward, led a balanced PHS attack with 12 points. Eight Panthers scored, including five with at least six points.

Gwen Streblow paced PHS in assists with four and Kalei Hering had three. Lisowe, Pieper and Majerus had a team-high three steals each. Mauk and Pieper led in rebounds with four apiece.

“Olivia had a solid overall game. Jordyn had a good game overall. Morgan gave us a spark, defensively, off the bench,” said Shutter. “Gwen played a solid game.”

Marisa Stahl led the Indians in scoring with 13.

JV, FRESHMAN GAMES

The Panthers stretched their junior varsity winning streak to six with a 72-43 trouncing. All nine Panthers scored, led by Skyler Gosse’s 23 points. Brooke Frederickson added 10. PHS improved to 9-0 in the EWC (12-1 overall).

Gosse and Sophie Albert led PHS in steals with an impressive seven each. Plymouth’s defense forced an amazing 37 turnovers.

Emma Grapentine paced PHS in rebounds with eight. Frederickson and Albert led in assists with four and three, respectively.

“We played hard. I was pleased with how well we saw the open girl and made great passes,” said PHS coach Mike Gumm.

The PHS freshman team stayed unbeaten with a 58-19 rout. The Panthers, 8-0 in the EWC (15-0 overall), were led on offense by Jessica Leider with 10 points. Hannah Bishop and Carly Lilek added eight points each and Emily Lavine hit seven.
