Pinnacle traveled to play the American Prep Eagles on Friday evening. The Panthers were doubled up in the first quarter, 22-11, and nearly again in the second to go into halftime down 37-19. Pinnacle outscored the Eagles in the second half but could not overcome the early deficit. They lost their opening game in 2019, 57-40.
Ben Scott had an outstanding game, recording a double-double with 23 points, 11 rebounds and eight assists.
Pinnacle (3-10, 0-1 Region 19) won’t play again until Jan. 12 when the Panthers head back on the road to take on a talented Tabiona team (10-2, 0-0 Region 22).
