“Elizabethtown-Lewis came back and tied it at 38-all with just over three minutes left,” said Panthers coach John Swinton. “But we held them scoreless for the remainder of the game.

“I was happy with our effort in the fourth quarter. We went through a stretch during the third quarter and into the fourth where we turned the ball over and they were converting on the other end. And that got them back in the game. The kids responded nicely and we stretched the lead with some late free throws.”
