Local Sports Sports Stories

SOUTH ZANESVILLE, Ohio – In many ways, it’s been a rough season for the Maysville Panthers.

Multiple close losses — including a last second bucket by Cambridge to steal the win — as well as multiple program stops and quarantines due to COVID exposure, the Panthers haven’t had the opportunity to build any momentum heading into the second month of the season.

Tuesday night, an opportunity for Maysville to end their winless streak and get a W on the board as they welcomed a depleted Morgan Raiders team to South Zanesville.

Morgan guard Gabe Altier and role players Jordan Raines and Caden Mummey did their best to fill the vacancies left by the absences of Carver Myers and Carter Mayle, but the Panthers exploited the weak points of the Raider offense and absolutely dominated the post game. Maysville forward Quentin Stottsberry finished the game with 18 points as the Panthers score their first win of the year.

FINAL: MORGAN 44 – MAYSVILLE 59
