STRYKER – The light at the end of the tunnel for the Stryker Panthers turned out to be an oncoming train bedecked in Archbold colors on December 18.
After getting snowed under in a 21-7 first period, the Panthers were able to keep pace in the second and third periods. They were unable to reclaim any lost ground though, and a
20-11 fourth quarter added insult to injury in a 67-42 loss.
Parker Ruffer was the sole Panther in double digits with 10 points, with Dean Beamont, Hunter Clingaman and Tanner Clingaman each throwing in 7. Austin Robison had 5 points, and Luke Graber, Tyler Teschke and Conrad Hausch each had 2 points.
