The Owls upped their record to 3-1 while the Panthers slipped to 2-1.

Sabin, a 6-foot-8 senior forward, exploded for 20 points in the first half to spark Slinger to a 29-27 halftime lead. On the night he was 11 of 17 at the foul line.

“Although we had fewer turnovers than Slinger, our inability to value the ball in the latter part of the second half helped to fuel their victory,” said Panther head coach Tim Schultz.

“I felt we moved the ball well on offense for large portions of the game but were unable to capitalize on some key scoring opportunities which could have led to victory.

“Defensively, we had lapses defending ball screens and being in proper position off the ball which led to some easy scores for them,” said Schultz.

Sophomore guard Cole Booth ignited the PHS attack with 19 points, including 13 in the second half. Mason Guell grabbed a team-high six rebounds. Cooper Gosse led in assists and steals with three each.

“Cole Booth played at a high level in limited minutes due to being foul trouble for most of the game,” said Schultz.

“Adam Smith, who was also in foul trouble, Mason Guell and Aiden Reilly defended well. Cade Knaus defended and rebounded well. Cooper Gosse and Joe Steinhardt played well off the bench.”

JV GAMES

PHS dropped to 1-2 in junior varsity-1 play with a 50-46 loss. Zach Zeeveld, Michael Troka and Ben Olsen led PHS in scoring with eight each.
