Corder Lehenbauer threw three touchdown passes and ran for another score as the Panthers left Kirksville behind for a 33-6 win at home Friday.
Palmyra took advantage of two of the Tigers’ five first-half turnovers, but could have done even more in taking a 14-6 lead into the break.
But the Panther defense held firm the rest of the way, while the offense scored three more times in the second half to win going away.
“We have never worried about the offense. We knew it was going to come together,” said Coach Kevin Miles, whose team now boasts two 30-plus point scores and a 28-point total in its last three games, all victories, after some early season struggles.
“It’s a process, and Corder (Lehenbauer) is making some great decisions, and I thought our O-line played a great game tonight,” Miles said.
