Panthers continue winning ways

PLYMOUTH – Plymouth outscored visiting Green Bay Southwest 38-20 during the second and third quarters combined to pave the way for a 68-49 boys basketball victory Thursday night.

The Panthers, who have won four in a row, raised their season mark to 6-4 with the nonconference victory.

PHS was 8-for-15 from three-point range for a strong 53 percent, led by Mitch Unger who was 3-for-5. Unger scored a game-high 21 points.

Unger erupted for a team-high nine points in the second period to ignite the Panthers who outscored the Fighting Trojans 18-8 to mount a 30-15 halftime cushion.

The Panthers busted the game open with a 20-12 scoring edge in the third quarter to go up 50-27. PHS buried four treys in the period, led by Myles Dellger’s two. Dellger hit a team-high six points in the quarter, followed by Unger and Parker Kastelic with five apiece.

PHS shot well from the field overall at 53 percent (25 of 47).

“Our shot selection was better [than in the last game]. We weren’t content with the outside shots,” said Panther head coach Jason Duff.

“We did a good job of probing the defense and going inside/outside. Our energy level was better than in the Campbellsport game [Plymouth’s previous contest].

“I liked the kids’ effort and that starts, defensively. We were aggressive and had good ball pressure,” Duff said.

PHS had a balanced offense with three players scoring in double figures. Brent Krueger tallied 13 and Dellger netted 10. Duff liked the way that Krueger, a senior guard, attacked the basket off the dribble.

Krueger was an outstanding 6-for-9 from the field for 67 percent. Kastelic led PHS in assists with four. Forrest Payne had a team-high three blocked shots and seven rebounds.


The Panther freshmen outscored Southwest 17-8 in the fourth quarter to earn a 44-37 comeback win. Collin Denzin sealed the victory with 9-for-10 foul shooting in the period.

Denzin and Clay Henning paced PHS in scoring with 13 points each. The Panthers improved to 6-1.

PHS dropped the junior varsity contest, 63-41, to slip to 7-3. Jordan Mueller and Devin Gumm led Panther scorers with nine each.

Brett Erdmann led Plymouth in boards with six. Owen Henriksen had a team-best five assists.
