The Trimble County Raiders, Carrollton's border rival, came into the Panther home court last Thursday and got off to a blistering start.
“They were hitting and we weren’t hitting ours,” Head Coach Carroll Yager said. “We made some good adjustments, and we were able to cut the lead to two points.”
The first quarter ended with the Panthers down 19-9, but at one point the score was 16-2.
“The game was closer than the score indicates, because at the end we had to foul to get the ball back,” Yager added.
