Panthers dispatch Owls in conference matchup


Jennings County showed little sign of fatigue during the second game in as many nights, dispatching of Seymour 82–34 Saturday in a Hoosier Hills Conference battle.

The neighbors from just a few miles down U.S. 50 received little hospitality from the Panthers, who opened with a 9-2 run in the opening minutes.

Chase Salmon and Landon Booth helped tighten the score in the first quarter. Salmon provided some strong inside play, and Booth hit from outside and avoided turning the ball over early. Cold Owl shooting contributed to the opening quarter ending with the Panthers already earning an 11-point lead.

Seymour (0-3, 0-7) closed the gap in the second quarter, sparked by a run led by point guard Booth’s four free throws, closing to within nine at about halfway through the quarter. But the Panthers’ Dan Leach unleashed a torrent of 3-point field goals, making all three of his attempts in the second quarter to dash any Owl comeback dreams.
