The 5-0 Stryker Lady Panthers came into Swanton’s McQuade Gymnasium on Saturday afternoon and used hot long-range shooting to battle the Lady Bulldogs to a 23-23 tie after the first half. However, it was the Swanton offense that caught fire in the third quarter, outscoring Stryker 23-8 as the Bulldogs went on to a 61-50 victory over the visitors.
The Panther offense reignited in the fourth quarter, draining five three-point shots and hitting four of five free throws, but the Bulldogs kept pace with six two-pointers and three of four foul shots for the 11-point win.
Senior Frankie Nelson was the game-high scorer with 21 points. She got balanced scoring help from Katie Floyd with 11 points, Emma Crow with 10 points and Trista Eitniear with eight.
The win moves Swanton’s record to 4-2 while Stryker drops to 5-1.
