Twelve Bronco threes bury Panthers

For a while, this one was close. For a while, it looked like the Paola Panther Girls would hang with the Spring Hill Broncos. For a while, that is, till the Panthers got stuck on 14 points, the problem was, the Broncos didn’t stay stuck, they continued to score, raining three point shots on the Panthers like a mid summer thunderstorm. In the end it all added up to a 67-43 shellacking at the hands of the Broncos on Friday, February 12, 2010.

WLH0195 It was a night of ceremony for the Panthers, as the girls team honored Rachel Hanf as a member of the 1000 point club, and three new members of the PHS Athletic Hall of fame were introduced to the crowd, but the Broncos were not in a celebratory mood, unless of course you count on the celebrations following one of their 12 three point baskets.

The Broncos were so good beyond the arc, they actually made as many three pointers as the Panthers did two point shots, and that is a recipe for disaster. But early, the Panthers looked like the could hang with the Broncos, that is up to the point where Ericka Simpson hit the first of her five three pointers in the game, which pulled Spring Hill to within one point at 10-9.

Prior to that, the Panthers had grabbed a 10-6 lead on two straight baskets by Rachel Schmidt. But once Simpson unlocked the lid on the basket, the Broncos were off and running. Simpson hit a field goal and Kelsey Carbajo added another to turn the 10-6 Panther lead into a 13-10 Bronco advantage. Kylee Mader hit a bucket to pull the Panthers back to within one, but Simpson hit another trey and Jami Hodge followed with another to put the Broncos up by seven with under a minute to play in the quarter. Annie Kessler hit a bucket and was fouled with 12 seconds to play, but missed the free throw and the Panthers were within five at the end of the first quarter at 19-14.

The second quarter tuned into a nightmare for the Panthers as they got stuck on the 14 points they scored in the first quarter, and watched as the Broncos continued to score at will, and opened the quarter with a 16-3 run including three more three pointers, two by Ashley Miller and one by Mollie Ravnikar. If it hadn’t been for a steal and layup by MacKenzie Hallstrom with 41.8 seconds to play in the quarter, the Panthers would have been shut out. Hallstrom’s three point play accounted for the Panthers only points of the quarter and stopped a nearly eight minute scoreless streak for Paola, and made the score 32-17 in Spring Hill’s favor. Of course, the Broncos had an answer, as Siimpson hit her third three pointer of the game as time ran out to give the Broncos an 18 point lead at the intermission.

The Panthers actually won the third quarter, as they outscored the Broncos 15-14 coming out of the halftime break. The highlight of the quarter for the Panthers was their free throw shooting, as they hit eight of ten from the charity stripe. Rachel Schmidt and Kaylee Farmer hit buckets for the Panthers and Courtney Johnson added a three pointer for the Panthers and as the fourth quarter began, Paola trailed the Broncos by 17 at 49-32.

Little did anyone know, but the Broncos were going to put on a three point shooting clinic in the fourth quarter, as they put up treys from just about anywhere on the court, and hit just about every one of them, hitting six field goals in the quarter, with five of those coming from beyond the arc, as Courtney Swope was the only Bronco to hit something other than a three pointer from the field in the quarter. Layne Gilliland accounted for the Broncos other point, hitting the front end of a one and one to help the Broncos outscore the Panthers 18-11 in the final eight minutes.

The Panthers tallied points on single field goals from Schmidt, Allison Wood, Farmer and Hallstrom along with thee of four free throw shooting from Melanie Golubski to close out their scoring at 11 points in the quarter and 43 for the game.

Rachel Schmidt lead the Panthers in scoring with 10 points on four field goals and two for two from the line. She was the only Panther to score in double figures on the night. Johnson added eight points for Paola, as she hit the Panthers only three pointers, hitting two for the game, Golubski tallied seven points, all in the second half and all from the free throw line as she hit seven of eight from the charity stripe.

The Panthers had 12 field goals and 2 three pointers on the night, while the Broncos hit 12 three pointers and added 11 more two pointers on the night. The Broncos were hot from just about everywhere on the floor, as they also hit nine of 11 from the free throw line.

Simpson lead the Broncos in scoring hitting 21 points on five three pointers and three field goals. Hodge had her box score read like a poker hand with three being wild, as she hit three field goals, three, three pointers and went three for three from the free throw line for 18 points. Miller also hit for double figures, knocking down three, three pointers and one of three from the free throw line for 10 points.

The road will not get any easier for the Panthers as they will host the Baldwin Bulldogs on Tuesday, February 16, 2010 in their annual pink out game. The Panthers will wear pink uniforms, and numerous pink items will be available in an effort to raise breast cancer awareness. The Panthers lost to the Bulldogs about a month ago in Baldwin by a 54-41 score in a game which saw the Panthers trail by just three points early in the fourth quarter. On Friday, February 19, 2010, the Panthers will travel to Louisburg to take on the Wildcats.
