Lady Panthers falter
By TAYLOR MITCHELL
PONTOTOC – After clinching a spot in the North 4A state tournament last week, the Lady Panthers of Yazoo County saw their time at the tournament cut short when they fell to North Pontotoc 69-40.
“They shot the ball extremely hard,” Lady Panthers head coach Patrick Nutter said. “We didn’t defend very well either.”
The Lady Warriors (29-0) wasted no time in establishing their dominance over Yazoo County, exploding out of the gates for a 22-10 lead after just eight minutes of play. Things wouldn’t get much better in the second quarter as the Lady Panthers fell to victim to a stingy Pontotoc defense, scoring just three points before entering halftime trailing 37-13.
