Panther girls’ cagers drop a pair last week

The up-and-down early-season campaign of the Glencoe-Silver Lake girls’ basketball team trended downward again last week with a pair of double-digit losses. 
The Panthers dropped below .500 at 3-4 as a 63-50 loss at Mayer Lutheran on Tuesday, Dec. 15, was followed by a 48-37 setback against visiting Lester Prairie on Thursday, Dec. 17.
The two consecutive losses came on the heels of a three-game winning streak that had GSL above the break-even mark for the first time on the young season. 
Mayer Lutheran proved to be rude hosts in promptly bringing the win streak to an end. The Crusaders built a 36-23 halftime lead before playing the visiting Panthers to a draw over the second half in the 13-point decision.
Guard Maddie Monahan led GSL with 20 points in the game, with backcourt mate Mac Monahan notching 15 points. Guard Miranda Grack and forward Maddy Kalenberg notched five and four points, respectively.
