    The Lady Panthers (5-13) bounced back from a 10-point first quarter deficit to defeat the visiting Lady Raiders 36-34 in overtime.

    Trimble (6-9) had the opportunity to end the game in regulation when referees called a foul with .2 seconds remaining, sending sophomore Paige Black to the free throw line for a pair. Down one, Black missed the first and sank the second, extending the game another four minutes knotted at 34.

    The Panthers (7-8) logged more assists (13) than turnovers (11), and the team hit free throws and took care of the ball down the stretch to seal the victory.

  • Boys outscored 10-2 in third, lose 48-36 to Gallatin

    Carroll County struggled against Gallatin County’s pressure defense, committing 27 turnovers en route to a 48-36 loss at home.

    “That’s the difference in the game,” Panthers head coach Carroll Yager said. “We missed some easy shots around the basket, probably four or five at least, right there at the basket … that could have been a difference too. Big thing is we have to handle the ball a bit better. We’re going to keep working on things to do that.”

  • Lady Panthers pull out win over Henry

    Down 20-10 heading into the fourth quarter, things looked bleak for the Carroll County Lady Panthers. The team had played well on defense, forcing Henry County to turn the ball over 24 times in the game, but continued to struggle on their shooting, hitting just 5-36 shots for 14 percent from the field through three quarters.

    But just when it seemed like the Lady Wildcats (3-10) had the game in hand, the Lady Panthers (4-10) started hitting shots. Carroll went on a 17-2 run in the fourth to pull out a 27-22 come-from-behind win on Tuesday, Jan. 3.
