Panthers Down Warriors

Panthers hit the boards to down Salamanca

PORTVILLE ‹ After a long layoff due to two weather cancellations, the
Warriors (2-5) got back to work at Portville on Monday night, but the result
wasn¹t what coach Brian Koscielniak wanted.
The inability to rebound against the Panthers doomed Salamanca as Portville
got several good second-chance looks throughout the 69-52 win, good for ³30
points² estimated assistant coach Pete Weishan.
 Down by as many as 17 points in the second quarter, the Warriors battled
back to make it a game. Several times they trimmed the lead to 10, but each
time Portville had the answer on the boards.
The Panthers featured four players in double figures, paced by Adam
Sullivan¹s 18.
The game featured the return of sophomore Thomas Williams after missing the
last contest, but he couldn¹t get it going early enough to be a factor.
Williams had 11 points, while Christian Reiller had a team high 14.
Reserve guard Ty Printup saw extensive action for the shorthanded Warriors
(the team features just 11 players). He netted five points, and got a
reaction from the bench with a three-pointer in the fourth quarter. He also
caused a tie-up with a good hustle play, deflecting the ball to Reiller.
Printup continued his good showing with a late steal and a strong rebound to
take it away from a Panther player.
