|Panthers Prevail on Senior Night|
Pine Crest Won its Seventh Consecutive Game with a 51 to 40 over Palmer Trinity.
The Falcons, using a Very Deliberate Game Plan, used the Clock and the first period was tied at 10 all.
It was Clear that the Panther opponent was going to make use of the Clock in hopes of keeping the score close.
In the Second Period behind Co-Captains AJ Sacks who scored 10 points and Antonio Vrankovic 4 points
And a pressing defense forged ahead to a half time score of 29 to 15.
In the Third Period the Slow and Methodical formula for Palmer Trinity continued but the Tandem of Sacks and Vrankovic
was simply too much for their opponent as they extended the Score to 44 to 22.
In the Final Period of play the Falcons outscored the Panthers 18 to 7 in a game that the outcome was already decided.
For the Seniors 6”11 Antonio Vrankovic, 6’0 AJ Sacks,6’7 Nick Nolting and 6’1 Jonah Scrudders it was a Reminder that the Season and their
Careers at Pine Crest will soon be coming be coming to an end.
They are Great Young Men and have made their mark at Pine Crest both in the classroom and on the Court.
Next year’s Team will Miss them and so will the Coach.
