The high flying PHS varsity girls basketball team came back to earth last week with back-to-back home losses to Quincy Notre Dame and Unity (Ill.) before rebounding with a win over Burlington (Iowa) Notre Dame during Saturday’s River Rivalries Series in Kahoka.
Just three days after winning the Monroe City Tournament in dramatic fashion, the Lady Panthers began the week with disastrous 51-19 loss at home to Quincy Notre Dame.
The Lady Raiders built a 23-6 first-quarter lead and Palmyra was never able to recover on offense with their 19 total points a figure they’ve topped in one quarter multiple times already this season.
Injuries added insult as well as starters Clare Williams and Candra King exited, missing significant time on the court.
Williams went out in the first half with a leg injury, while King was hurt in the third quarter when she fell hard to the court under the basket.
Palmyra managed to sink just six of 34 field goals including 0 for 9 from outside the arc.
Scoring for Palmyra were Sydney Compton, five, King, four, Taytum White, three, Abbey Redd, three, Bella McBride, two, and Williams, two.
Abbey Schrencke led QND with 16 points.
Things went a little better three days later in 66-55 loss at home to Unity
Palmyra trailed by just three going into the final period when Unity went on a 24-16 run to cap their victory.
White shot seven of 15 from the floor and four of four from the line to lead Palmyra with 19 points. She also led the team with five rebounds.
Also scoring were Candra King, who was six of eight from the floor with 15 points, Sydney Compton, 11, Clare Williams, six, and Abbey Redd, four.
The Lady Panthers returned to their winning ways with their 58-41 win over BND.
Trailing by two at the half, Palmyra finished the win with a 35-26 second-half run.
Compton had the hot hand all game long, sinking 11 of 16 field goals in leading the team with 24 points to go along with a team-high nine rebounds.
King struggled shooting early, but scored 12 of her 16 points during the second half surge, to go along with eight rebounds.
Also scoring were Redd, seven, Williams, six, Ashley Bode, two, Alaina Loman, two, and Avery Compton, one.
The Lady Panthers were to complete 2022 with a road game against Louisiana, Tuesday.
