Streblow, Rhude propel Panthers to ECC rout

WINNECONNE – Gwen Streblow and Lydia Rhude combined for 51 points to power the Plymouth Panthers to an 89-68 thumping of host Winneconne in a girls basketball game Friday night.

Streblow, a senior guard, hit 27 points, keyed by five threepoint goals. Rhude, a senior guard, scored a career-high 24, including two treys. They both were red-hot shooting from the field – Streblow at 64 percent (9 of 14) and Rhude, 61 percent (8 of 13).

“Lydia and Gwen played excellent. When they are on, they can light it up [on offense] and they did,” said Panther head coach Brad Shutter.

The Panthers raised their firstplace East Central Conference record to 8-0 (13-2 overall) and extended their winning streak to seven. PHS was ranked No. 7 in the Associated Press Division 2 poll coming into the game.

Winneconne dropped to 4-4 in the ECC (9-6 overall).

PHS built a 42-27 halftime lead and were in control the rest of the way. Rhude and Streblow sparked the Panthers’ attack in the first half with 17 and 14 points, respectively. Streblow drained four three-balls and Rhude hit two in the opening half.

The Panthers’ scoring total and 56-percent shooting from the field are season-highs for one game.

“We executed on offense and got good shots and knocked them in. It was a team effort by everyone,” said Shutter.

“Emma Jewell [junior point guard] handled the ball well and distributed it well. Lexi Lautenschlaeger [junior forward] did a good job on defense.”

Jewell and Kalei Hering led PHS in assists with four each. Hering had a team-high four steals and Rhude made three. PHS had an impressive 16 steals.

Junior center Jessica Leider had a career-high 12 rebounds to lead the Panthers. Leider also had a team-best two blocked shots.

Senior post player Sadie Kosciuk ignited the Wolves’ offense with 25 points, including 17 in the second half.

“Winneconne is a good team, They have some good bigs [post players],” said Shutter.


Kalani Smith had a team-high 12 points and 10 rebounds to lead PHS to a 40-30 win in the JV 1 game.

The Panthers took over the sole lead in the ECC at 7-1 and improved to 14-1 overall. The Wolves, who were tied for first coming into the contest, dropped to second place at 6-2.
