"Coming off the tough loss to Mahomet, the boys had a good week of practice, and it showed against St. Matthew," PBL eighth-grade coach Sam Schmale said. "The effort and intensity was very good last night. They are continuing to grow as a unit and are getting better. We have one more game before Thanksgiving, which is on Monday as we head down to Fisher." Cory Degarmo led the Panthers in scoring with 18 points while Garrett Sanders and Brandon Knight added nine and seven points, respectively.
