Pantherettes Take Down the Lady Wolves

Filed under: DISD,Sports |

After celebrating Coach Cathy Self-Morgan’s career victory number 900, some might have thought the Pantherettes might be due for a letdown.

Nothing could have been further from the truth.

The Pantherettes were coming in ranked #3 in the state as they faced the #18 team in the state, the Lady Wolves of Mansfield Timberview.

The only thing that was different about this game is the Pantherette opponents were able to keep the game fairly close through the first period.

Tasia Foman led all scorers with 8 of the Pantherettes 18 first period points. The Lady Wolves were able to score 12 points in the first off of the shooting of JaLea Bennett and Lili Thompson.

In the second period, Duncanville opened their lead to 36-24 with 9 points from Antiona Robinson at halftime.

In the third quarter, the Pantherette defense came back strong and held the Lady Wolves to only 6 points for the quarter, while the offense scored 19 thanks to 6 points by Kiara Perry, with 5 other players scoring the remaining 13 points for the quarter.

In the fourth, Perry put in 6 again, and Foman matched her for 12 of the 19 points scored by Duncanville in the quarter to push the final score to 74-44.

The Pantherettes will next take on Mansfield Legacy on Tuesday, January 17, at 6PM at Legacy.
