Basketball: Pau-Wa-Lu falls in season opener
The Pau-Wa-Lu Panthers seventh-grade boys’ team will be looking to bounce back from a 31-17 loss to Carson.
Kaleb Foster and Andrew Jensen had a tough time getting clean, easy looks at the basketball last week.
The eighth-grade team had trouble with Carson as well, losing in a close one 28-24.
Teddy Mason and Pat Johnson were the go-to players as the Panthers fell just short in the closing seconds of the season-opener.
The Panthers offensive attack was well spread between Johnson, Mason and Lepolion Rose.
However, it was the unyielding pressure defense that kept the juggernaut Carson to only seven second-half points.
Wes Hundley led the defensive storm with several steals and forced turnovers. The Panthers look forward to their matchups with Alder Creek and South Tahoe this next week
