Panthers begin playoffs with a win

It wasn’t easy, but the Glencoe-Silver Lake girls’ basketball team ended a three-game losing streak and kept its season alive with a 64-51 defeat of visiting Belle Plaine in the opening round of the Section 2AA Tournament on  Monday, March 2.
“I give total credit to our girls,” coach Zach Otto-Fisher said. “Belle Plaine battled, but we didn’t buckle.”
The Panthers never trailed in the contest, but were never able to get completely comfortable as the Tigers chipped away at double-digit leads held by GSL in both the first and second halves.
At one point past the midway point of the second half, Belle Plaine had sliced the host’s lead to just one possession and threatened to not only steal away momentum, but the game itself.
