Panthers do it again

Down 10, PHS stuns Jackson with rally

For the second time this season, a Powell Panther team seemingly down and out on the scoreboard rallied to earn a victory over the Jackson Broncs. In doing so, the team maintained its hold on a share of first place in the 3A West conference.

“We called a time out and told the kids that we needed to do something different on defense,” Panther head coach Mike Heny said, recalling a moment late in the third quarter when his team trailed 32-22. “They went out and played with a little more energy. We got some stops and it just grew from there.”

Fourth place by two points

Five Panthers medaled and every varsity wrestler contributed team points as Powell wrestled to a fourth-place finish in the Ron Thon Memorial in Riverton last week, just two points behind conference rival Worland in the final standings.

Defending 4A state champion Gillette won the tournament by a comfortable margin and Natrona County, also a 4A school, finished second, just 9.5 points ahead of the Panthers. Defending 3A state champion Douglas finished ninth, more than 40 points behind the Panthers.
