The Lady Panthers were not about to concede and came back in the third quarter with stellar defense, allowing only two points. The Lady Panthers locked it down in the fourth quarter to end the game victorious, 40-23.
Destinee Andrews led the scoring for Pinnacle with 15 points, followed by Kemery Stuckenschneider with 12 and Jacee Atwood with 11.
Up next, the Lady Panthers look to maintain their winning momentum as they travel to Green River to take on the Lady Pirates in a conference game on Jan. 12. Tipoff is slated for 5:30 p.m.
