The Madison Academy Panthers stepped onto the court Jan. 4 for their first time in 2011 to play against a tough Steinhatchee team.
The Steinhatchee Stingrays would be the first to score, right from tip off. This wouldn’t slow the Panthers’ spirit as Tyler Zimmerly battled in the paint, being the top scorer with seven points.
At halftime, the Panthers would have the lead by two points as the score stood, Madison Academy with 14 and Steinhatchee with 12.
The Panthers would finally put the game away in the second half with some very aggressive defense.
Jim Flournoy would rally with six consecutive points in the fourth quarter to push the Panthers past the Stingrays 29-22.
Tyler Zimmerly would finish the game with seven points along with Jim Flournoy and Will Floyd both finishing with six points.
John Flournoy and Jesse Smith would both score four points each and Michael McCamman would finish the game with two points.
The Panthers were also led to victory by Hunter Holman, Ross Bass, Steven Miller, Jacob Hanners, and Dorian Alberti.
