Panthers Over Trojans in First District
Match-up "That Goes to the Wire"
by: Bobby McDonald
Basketball fans didn't have a chance to recover from the "thrilling" varisity girls game, before they were thrown into another great match-up, on Thursday night, when the North Hopkins Panthers and Cumby Trojans took to the court, for another outstanding game of basketball. The North Hopkins Panthers came out on top, 52-44, but the score reflected a much larger difference, that the game actually was played. The two teams were tied at halftime and it actually "came down to the wire," in making the victory decision!
"It didn't think you could possibly see two exciting basketball games, as these two, in same night," advised one Cumby fan. "But, we've truly witnessed two outstanding 'hard-fought' games, that is what high school basketball should be all about!"

"A flat scoring quarter, on the part of the Cumby Trojans, during the third period, made the difference in the Thursday night match-up, coupled with a good defensive effort by the Panthers, to 'hang-on' to the lead.
