What a difference a day makes

marie@pvdemocrat.com — The Pauls Valley Panthers and Lady Panthers had totally opposite days from day one to day two of the Tishomingo Tournament Thursday and Friday.

On Thursday the Panthers played one of their best games as they avenged an earlier loss to Marietta with a 62-46 win over the Indians. On Friday, Pauls Valley ran into a buzz saw against No. 7 Atoka in Class 3A losing 70-48.

The Lady Panthers did just the opposite. A wretched evening shooting cost PV against the Davis Lady Wolves losing 49-29. On Friday they rebounded to knock off Kingston.

Thursday, Pauls Valley got a big game from a pair of sophomores. Matt Perry scored 18 points to lead all scorers and Greg Balcerak was a point away from a double-double with 9 points and 12 rebounds.

The Panthers blistered the nets shooting 66-percent from two-point land and 54-percent overall.

Perry scored a quick five points for Pauls Valley giving Pauls Valley the lead for good. Marietta was able to tie the game at 5 but a 9-2 run at the end of the quarter gave a cushion.

Even though PV led by as many as 10 points on a couple of occasions, Marietta made a run to cut the lead to four. PV used a 12-0 run in the final three minutes including 6-of-6 from the line for the 16-point win.

Perry finished with the 18, Carter Tate added 14, Shedrick Murray 10, Balcerak and Treston Williams 9 each and Michele Meave 2.

The Lady Panthers got off to a great start Thursday but after the first minute of the game the wheels fell off.

Pauls Valley hit two quick field goals in the game but for the next 23 minutes would only hit two more field goals and would trail 27-12 at half time and 31-18 at the end of the third quarter.

The first two minutes of the fourth it looked like the Lady Panthers were going to make a come back scoring a 6-2 run to cut the lead to single digits. PV had a couple of possessions to cut the lead even further down but couldn’t connect.

Davis then would then score 10 straight to blow open the game and finished with a 14-2 run and a 20-point win.

Kallie McMahan led the Lady Panthers with 7 and Jessica Richardson, Abigail Grimmett and Mary Beth Balcerak each had 6 and Pam Grover added 4.

The Panthers played in the third place game while the Lady Panthers played in the consolation finals on Saturday.
