Lady Panthers defeated Farmersville, 62 – 46 and Boys beat Aussie 41 – 38.

The Quinlan Ford Lady Panthers defeated the Farmersville Farmers in a 62-46 victory. The Lady Panthers started the game with a strong lead of 20 points during the first quarter and continued to maintain their lead against Farmersville. Farmersville gained only eight points to start.

Girls Athletic Coordinator and Head Girls Basketball Coach Jason Wallen said that the Lady Panthers started early in their tempo which contributed to the big win.

“We came out and executed the game plan well in the first quarter,” said Wallen. “I thought our girls pushed tempo early, and we were able to get their defense expanded to open some dribble penetration lanes.  Our biggest concern going into this was battling their size, and I thought we did a good job neutralizing that early.  As a result we were able to take a 12 point lead into the 4th, then get a quick bucket to extend out to 14.  After that we were able to settle into our delay game a bit, and we hit 13 free throws in the final frame.  Overall I am very proud of our kids, now it is on to Crandall next week.”

Notable point earners in the game were Jazzmen Beierschmitt with 17 points, Madison Harrison with 17, Autumn Wallace with six, Sofia Garcia with three, Allysen Warden with six, and Ashley Todd with 13.

The Junior Varsity Lady Panthers, however, lost to the Farmers with a final score of 31-14. The game was hard fought with Natalie Stockton scoring three points, Kaylyn Rainer scoring six points, Jaylee Butt scoring three points and Emma Parr scoring two points.
