Panthers take down Tigers

It was a happy night for the Glencoe-Silver Lake boys' basketball team as the Panthers recorded their first win of the season on Friday, Dec. 9, at Hutchinson.
GSL improved to 1-3 on the season and kept the Tigers winless this winter by means of a 65-50 victory that provided the Panthers a taste of happiness after a difficult start to the season. 
"It was really nice to get that win," coach Robb DeCorsey said. "We haven't done that great against Hutch in recent years, but that was the largest margin of victory for us against them since I've been coaching."
DeCorsey credited improvement in shooting and rebounding as keys to GSL's win over its neighboring rival. The coach also noted that the triumph came at a good time after the Panthers had dropped to 0-3 with losses to Sibley East and Tri-City United earlier in the week.
"The only problem is, we win last Friday, but then we don't play again until this coming Saturday," he said. "We have many things to work on, though. The guys just want to get out there and play, but we have so much to breakdown and go over both offensively and defensively."
