Park City lost back to back games by a combined eight points. They lost to Bridger 50-45 last Thursday and then two days later gave up another to Harlowton 51-48. Both games could have gone either way, but the Panthers had a very slow start on the offensive end and in both games they could never fully recover.
Against Bridger the Panthers were outscored 20-2 in the first quarter and crawled all the way back to pull within single digits before the last quarter. Connor McNeil, Talon Johnstone and Lane Lowell from Park City all scored in the double-digits, but it wasn’t enough.
After such a disastrous first quarter the Panthers had 11 in the second, 13 in the third and 19 in the final period to finish the game and even held Bridger to an eight point fourth quarter, but couldn’t quite pull off the comeback.

Bridger def. Park City 50-45
Park City 2 11 13 19 — 45 
Bridger 20 11 11 8 — 50 
Park City: Rylan Gauthler 9, Connor McNeil 11, Peyton Moe 1, Talon Johnstone 13, Lane Lowell 11. 
Bridger: Ryan Zentner 12, Colter Zentner 11, Carson Roberts 13, Kolton Pospisil 13, Jake Mitzel 1. 

When they put so much effort into an epic comeback that didn’t pan out in their matchup with Bridger. their next game’s outcome was unclear. All the momentum they had in their last game to catch up from down almost 20 points in the first quarter just to lose. Against Harlowton the first quarter had eerily similar results.
The Panthers opened the game with a nine point quarter, but only gave up 14. Rylan Gauthier had 12 and Lane Lowell had 11 as they led their team to a five point 40-35 lead going into the fourth quarter.
Harlowton’s Garrett Woldstad dropped 24 to lead all scorers on both teams and helped his team to outscore Park City 16-8 in the final period. The Panthers lost by three 51-48, after leading most of the game.
After two very hard fought and emotional losses the Panthers will have to get back on track soon.
Their next game is Jan. 13 at Plenty Coups, 7:30 p.m.
