Wildcats knock out Panthers 65-48 — Pauls Valley got a huge win on Thursday holding off a stubborn Bridge Creek squad for a 52-47 win. That led to a Friday date with Madill in the regional finals with PV coming up short 65-48.

Thursday, Pauls Valley got a double-double from Greg Balcerak in the five-point win. Balcerak had 19 points and 13 rebounds to lead the Panthers.

Treston Williams and Carter Tate both scored in double figures with 11 and 10 points respectively.

Bridge Creek led most of the game but a late run at the end of the third and into the fourth turned a 5-point defict into an 8-point lead.

The Panthers struggled from the free throw line late giving Bridge Creek a chance. PV held on in the end for a 5-point win.

Friday was a different song.

Balcerak owned the boards early but Pauls Valley couldn’t find the basket on the offensive end. Early foul trouble for Treston Willams kept the double-digit scorer on the bench for most of the first half.

Madill jumped out to a 6-0 lead and a 9-0 run at the end of the quarter gave the Wildcats a 21-6 lead.

Pauls Valley finally got on track in the second quarter cutting the lead to 11 at one point in the quarter. A pair free throws late by the Wildcats gave them a 37-24 lead.

Michele Meave’s three pointer to start the second half cut the lead to 10 and that would be as close as PV would get. Madill would responde with a 6-0 run and turned that into a 10-3 run for a 17-point lead.

PV cut the lead to 13 on a Williams free throw early in the fourth. An 8-0 run by Madill put the game away and led to a 17-point win.

Senior Carter Tate finished with 11 points all in the first half after sitting most of the second in foul trouble. Meave had a season high 10 points and Balcerak added 9.

Garrett Readnour chipped in 6, Willliams 3, Colby Arie 2, Donley Woodell 2, Austin Foxworth 2 and James Jones 2.
