Panthers Pick Up Pair of GLAC Wins

The Stockbridge basketball team opened GLAC play with a pair of big wins last week after a slow start to the season.

The Panthers opened the week by rolling over Maple Valley 72-43.

Stockbridge led 13-7 after one when Riley Kennedy sparked the Panthers to a big run in the second. Kennedy would score nine in the quarter to help the Panthers outscore the Lions 22-8 to take a commanding 35-15 lead at the half.

Drew Philipp scored six third quarter points as the Panthers lead grew to 51-26.

Jeremy Pilch led Stockbridge with 21 points, including 10 in the fourth to ruin any hopes of a Maple Valley comeback.

Kennedy and Philipp finished with 14 points each, David Kluesner nine, Noah Robidou seven, Josh Casey three, Brock Jones and Danny Mahler two each.

The Panthers made it two straight league wins with a 54-38 win over Perry.

Pilch sparked the Panthers in the first with six points as they took a 15-7 lead after one.

Stockbridge used a balanced scoring attack in the second with four players scoring at least two points to extend the lead to 27-14 at the half.

Perry made a game of it in the third by outscoring the Panthers 13-8 to cut the lead to 35-27, but Pilch would score six in the final period to help hold off the Ramblers.

Pilch scored a team high 18 points, while Philipp added 15.

Robidou chipped in with 11 points, Kluesner five, Kennedy four, and Casey two.
