It was a tough game for the Panthers as they were down 14-3 going into the fourth quarter. The Panthers came back to score 12 points in the fourth quarter to defeat the Dawgs.

Senior Taylor Thompson said, “It was a tough game. They were coached up really well on our offense and what we were doing so it took us a while to adjust to that. But I’m proud of my team for fighting all the way through and coming out with the win. ”

The Panthers are now 2-1 in district.
