The Panther defense dominated and the offense came alive in a 34-14 win in the home opener over Bowling Green Friday.

But, yes, there are still some things to clean up as the team looks to improve.

Palmyra broke out for 449 yards of offense and four touchdowns, and the defense held the Bobcats to 107 yards while  turning a Bowling Green fumble into points.

Yet, the Panthers fumbled three times and were called for 13 penalties for 140 yards.

“We came out strong and went up 14-0, then they came back and tied us, and then we got the lead back. It was crazy,” said Panther quarterback Corder Lehenabuer. “It was great to come out in the second half and shut them down.”
