The United Township Panthers rattled off a ten point lead to start the 3rd quarter after the Silver Streaks had been ahead by five at halftime. The Panthers came out on top in Western Big 6 Conference play at John Thiel Gymnasium on Friday night 44 – 41.
That was the 6th straight win for The Panthers making them 2-0 and tied for first place in the Western Big 6 Conference. This drops Galesburg to 4-2 overall and 0-2 for conference play.
Even with The Panthers leading most of the second half the Silver Streaks still had a lead late in the game at 41- 40 but the Panthers scored the final 4 points in their victory for the night.
Our Dave’s Auto Body Crunch Time Player of the Game was Quinn Anderson who finished with only 3 points but helped the Streaks by putting them on top in the last lead of the game.
The GHS Sophomores won big Friday night 66-37
The next GHS Boys Varsity action will be Tuesday night in a non-conference game against Macomb which will also be the final home game for the Streaks in 2018 as they wont have another home game until 2019 in January.
