Panthers coast to ECC victory

CAMPBELLSPORT – The Plymouth Panthers dominated in all phases as they breezed to a 60- 18 girls basketball win over host Campbellsport Friday night.

PHS upped its East Central Conference record to 3-1 (8-2 overall) which is tied for first with Winneconne and Kettle Moraine Lutheran (Jackson). Campbellsport fell to 1-3 in the ECC (1-8 overall).

Senior forward Jessica Leider led PHS in scoring with 17 points and senior guard Carly Lilek hit a career-high 15. Lilek was redhot from the field with 6-for-7 (86 percent) shooting, including 3-for-3 from three-point range. Leider was an outstanding 8-for- 10 (80 percent) from the field.

“It was a real good overall team effort. Everyone contributed. I was really happy with our team defense,” said Panther head coach Brad Shutter.

“We played really good halfcourt defense. We made them settle for outside shots which they aren’t real good at. Our outside and inside games [on offense] were good.”

PHS held the Cougars to only 6-for-42 field-goal shooting. The Panthers dominated the board with a 29-17 rebounding edge and had an impressive 13 offensive rebounds.

The Panthers committed only 10 turnovers to the Cougars’ 23. PHS had 12 steals, led by Alesha Kaat-Fohr, Emma Jewell and Leider with three each.

Leider had a team-high 10 boards. Jewell led in assists with six.

“Carly did a nice job [on offense]. Emma [point guard] did a good job in the fast break, pushing the ball. Lexi Lautenschlaeger did a really nice job on defense inside with leadership,” said Shutter.
