PHS falls but still tied for EWC lead

GIRLS BASKETBALL

WAUPUN – A strong inside game and a stingy defense sparked Waupun past the Plymouth Panthers, 61-47, in a key Eastern Wisconsin Conference girls basketball game here Thursday night.

The loss dropped the Panthers into a three-way tie for the EWC lead with Waupun and Kiel at 8-3. PHS (13-4 overall) defeated Waupun, 70-58, in their first meeting this season. The Panthers shared the league lead with Kiel coming into the game. Kiel to Sheboygan Falls, 47-44, Friday night.

“I give Waupun a lot of credit. Their 2-3 zone was good strategy. They limited our fast-break stuff and made us shoot outside, and didn’t give us any second-chance shots,” said Panther head coach Brad Shutter.

“They did a good job of getting the ball inside. Their size was a big factor. They were tough to handle down low.”

Waupun controlled the boards with a 33-19 rebounding edge.

The Warriors (14-5 overall), who scored several baskets inside, shot well from two-point range at 53 percent (21 of 40) and hit a solid 49 percent overall. Waupun outscored PHS 11-1 at the foul line.

“Jordyn played a great overall game,” said Shutter.

Senior guard Emily Peterson led the Warriors’ attack with 17 points and 6-foot-1 senior post player Kayla Bonack contributed 12.

“They played a good game. We played OK but they played better,” said Shutter.
