The PHS varsity boys basketball team went 2-0 in conference play last week with victories over Clark County and South Shelby.
The Panthers went to 3-2 in the Clarence Cannon Conference and 12-9 overall with a 68-46 win at home over South Shelby, Saturday.
A strong start helped ensure the favorable outcome as the Panthers got out to a 21-6 lead and went into halftime up by 22.
Alex Loman had the hot shooting hand, sinking five three-pointers in scoring a game-high 24 points to go along with five rebounds.
Bear Bock scored 14 points while contributing six rebounds, six assists and three blocked shots, while Carson Hicks came off the bench to score 10 points.
Also contributing on offense were Mason Roberts, seven, Laydin Lochman, three, Bronson Juette, three, Adam Goodwin, three, Tyler Banta, two, and Jon Lundberg, two.
The game was originally scheduled for Friday but had to be postponed due to the snow.
The Panthers opened the week with a 71-54 CCC victory at Clark County, Tuesday, just ahead of the big snow storm.
Palmyra led by just two going into second period when they went on a 21-8 run to go into halftime up 36-21.
Palmyra then added two more points to their lead in the second half, to hold off Clark County for the team’s second Clarence Cannon Conference victory.
Bock burned Clark County with 14 field goals, including a three-pointer, to lead all scorers with 30 points.
Also scoring were Lochman, 11, Loman, seven, Roberts, five, Shannon, four, Landyn Smith, three, Lundberg, three, Jimmy Scott, two, and Juette, two.
The girls and boys games were moved up by an hour to help get the contests in ahead of the incoming snow storm.
Palmyra was also supposed to host Kirksville, Wednesday, but the game was postponed.
This week, the Panthers were scheduled to continue conference play at Monroe City, Tuesday, before hosting Bowling Green, Thursday in the annual Pink Out the Gym Night game.
They then wrap up regular season play the following week by traveling to Hannibal, Tuesday, before hosting Highland in the conference finale, Friday.
