Going into their second game against the Steinhatchee Stingrays on Dec. 6, the Madison Academy Panthers knew their challengers would be ready for payback after being narrowly edged out of a win a week earlier in Madison. With a slow start, Panthers lost 31-24.Consecutively scoring six points, Jacob Hanners put the opening points on the board, while his teammate Jim Flournoy contributed 10 points as leading scorer. Scoring two points apiece were Stephen Miller, Ross Bass, Michael Goley and John Flournoy, who also led the Panthers on defense with eight steals. Michael Goley and Michael McCamman led the team in rebounding.
“If we could have played as well in the first half as we did in the second half,” said Coach Zach Iott. “The outcome may have been different. It was a good game though. The fans cheered us on until the very end, and our team never gave up.”
