If the first quarter were like the first pancake, the Carroll County Panthers would have been within striking distance of the Owen County Rebels Thursday night, down only 32-29 in the final three quarters of play. Unfortunately, first quarters cannot be thrown out. The Rebels outscored the home team 16-2 in the opening eight minutes, giving them a 48-31 victory.
“We came out and, for whatever reason, I thought we played a little nervous. We missed a bunch of easy shots,” Carroll head coach Carroll Yager said.
