Basketball: Pau-Wa-Lu falls in season opener

Special to The R-C

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
