From the Sports News Center….The JV girls basketball team improved to 8 and 0 last night with a 63-9 win over Silver Creek. Jackie Scanlon had 24 points, Nat Maurer added 13, and Avery DeFazio scored 10. The Lady Panthers will try for 9 in a row tomorrow vs. rival Allegany-Limestone.
The Portville boys JV basketball team won their first match-up of the season against Cuba-Rushford Wednesday night by a score of 45-29 . After a slow start and trailing most of the first quarter, the boys would get a lift when Lucious Young scored as time expired in the first to take the lead 12-10. The second quarter saw the boys start to distance themselves as Luke Petryszak and Cole Faulkner dominated inside play. In third quarter it was much the same as the Panthers outscored the rebels 16 to 6. Luke Petryszak led all scorers with 19 points while Cole Faulkner added 8. Aidan DeFazio, Bryce Findlay, and Tyler Stives were great in the backcourt keeping turnovers to a minimum under full court pressure from Cuba. Great Job Boys!
Special Message from the Athletic Department:
Our Athletes of the Month for February
Maxx Yehl: Maxx has had a double-double in 4 of the Panthers 5 games so far this season. He is averaging 14 points per game, and 15 rebounds per game respectively. His size inside and his presence on the offensive and defensive boards have been a huge contributor to our success so far this season.
Joe Long: Joe is averaging 10 points and 5 rebounds per game. His hard work, good attitude, and leadership on and off the floor have helped get us off to a good start this season. His ability to play hard on defense and attack the basket offensively were instrumental in our victory over Franklinville last week.
Congratulations to the following girls for being named Athletes of the Month for February for Girls Basketball: Mallory Welty & Mia Hlasnick
Both girls helped the Lady Panthers achieve a 5 and 1 record for the month.
Mallory, a junior captain, leads the team averaging 16.2 points per game, while being 2nd in rebounds, 2nd in assists, and 2nd in plus/minus ratio. She has come up clutch in league games, especially when she hit the game-winning three-pointer against Gowanda with 30 seconds remaining. She had 8 three-pointers in that contest. In our lone loss to Randolph, Mallory did everything she could to help the Lady Panthers as she filled the stat sheet with 25 points, 6 rebounds, and 4 assists. Mallory is always consistent and unselfish and plays the game the right way.
Senior guard, Mia Hlasnick, is averaging 6.0 points, 6.5 rebounds, and leads the team in steals and assists. She began the season as a spark off the bench and recently has transitioned to a starter. She sees the floor extremely well and during a league game versus Falconer recorded an astounding 12 assists. Both girls should also be lauded for how well they play defense. Congratulations to Mallory & Hlas!
Congratulations to these 4 athletes, nice work last month!
Maxx, Joe, Mallory, and Mia please go see Mrs. Colligan for your shirt and certificates.
