Panthers shut down Slinger

PLYMOUTH – Defense was again the catalyst for the Plymouth Panthers as they rolled past Slinger, 40- 26, in nonconference girls basketball Tuesday at the PHS gym.

PHS, 8-3, held the Owls to only 26-percent field-goal shooting and used a full-court press and half-court trap to forced 22 turnovers. Plymouth outscored Slinger 10-2 in the second quarter to mount a 23-8 halftime edge.

“Defensively, we did a great job the whole night,” said Panther head coach Brad Shutter.

“This is a good nonconference win.”

The Owls dropped to 8-3 overall.

Senior guard Kaitlyn Hoffmann led PHS in scoring with 16 points to go with two steals. Senior guardforward Ali Thompson contributed a team-high four steals and was second in scoring at nine.

Senior center Chrissy Perl paced PHS rebounders with eight.

“Ali had a great all-around game. She played very hard,” Shutter observed.

“Kaitlyn had a very good overall game. Chrissy did a very good job on the boards.”
