The game was the East Central Conference opener for PHS which slipped to 3-2 overall. The Chargers improved to 2-0 in the ECC (3-0 overall).

PHS shot a frigid 27 percent (13 of 48) from the field, including only 4 of 21 from three-point range. The Panthers trailed 30-13 at halftime.

“We struggled all game long to knock down shots. We had many good looks from both inside and outside but we were unable to consistently score throughout the game,” said PHS head coach Tim Schultz.

“At times, especially in the first half, we played soft defensively against a physical and solid team. Our inability to close out properly on the perimeter and provide defensive help in the post really cost us.”

Senior forward Solomon Zarling scored 13 of his teamhigh 15 points in the first half to spark the KML offense.

Cole Booth paced PHS in scoring with 17 and assists, four. Cade Knaus had a team-best 11 rebounds and three steals.

The Panthers’ junior varsity-2 squad lost in double-overtime, 78- 68. Zach Zeeveld hit 23 points to lead the PHS attack.

Zeeveld also led his team in rebounds with 10, steals with five and blocked shots, four. Michael Troka also had 10 boards. The Panthers are 2-3 overall.

PHS dropped the JV-2 game, 44-30, to fall to 2-3 overall. Greg Even led the Panthers’ offense with nine points.
