Leider hits 25, leads Panthers to rout

PLYMOUTH – Senior post player Jessica Leider exploded for 25 points to ignite the Plymouth girls basketball team to a 63-39 thumping of Ripon in an East Central Conference game here Friday night.

The Panthers upped their ECC record to 11-2 (17-4 overall) and stretched their winning streak to three. The Tigers fell to 3-10 in the league (4-15 overall).

PHS is in second place, one game behind Kettle Moraine Lutheran (Jackson). KML, 12-1 in the league, clinched at least a share of the title with a 57-49 win over Winneconne Friday night. PHS and KML each have one ECC game remaining.

“I thought this was one of our better overall games of the year. The girls came out composed and played well from the beginning, especially on the defensive end of the floor,” said Panther head coach Brad Shutter.

“Jessica and Lexi Lautenschlaeger had double-digit boards which is impressive. Other than that, it was a good team effort.”

Leiderm who was an impressive 8 of 10 from the field, had 11 rebounds and Lautenschlaeger pulled down a team-high 13.

Emma Jewell paced PHS in assists with five. Jewell and Lautenschlaeger had a teamhigh three steals each.

PHS outscored Ripon 14-1 at the foul line.
