The PHS varsity boys basketball team are unbeaten to start the season after adding road victories last week over Mark Twain and Canton.
The Panthers capped the week with a hard-fought 64-42 win at Canton Friday.
The game was close until the final quarter when the Panthers finished strong with a 21-12 run.
Carson Hicks scored nine of his 22 points in the final period, while Bear Bock added seven of his 15 points down the stretch.
Other starters contributing on offense were Tyler Banta, 12, and Jon Lundberg, six.
Coming off the bench to add to the total were Ethan Redd five, Trey Smyser three and Drew Copenhaver, one.
The Panthers overcame a lackluster first half for a 55-45 comeback win at Mark Twain last Tuesday.
An aggressive Tiger squad and some tough-luck shooting resulted in a 20-20 score at half.
But, the Panthers regrouped during the break and proceeded to out-score Mark Twain 35-25.
Bock and Hicks led the second-half resurgence with both sinking five field goals after the break to account for their team-high 14 points.
Lundberg and Redd added nine points each, while Banta added five, and Copenhaver and Bronson Juette scored two each.
The Panthers compete this week as the second seed in the 96th annual Monroe City Tournament. They were scheduled to open play Monday against seventh-seeded Paris. Results were unavailable for this issue.
