Park City boys take second at 6C District

s

improved on their 5th place finish at the 6C District Tournament last year, taking 2nd after falling to Bridger 49–32 in the championship game on Saturday.

Coach Ben Southworth said the tournament was a bit of a roller coaster for the Panthers.

“For the three games I thought we played great defense and played with great intensity, but we were just not getting the ball to fall our way.

After defeating Roberts 65-24 in the first round, Park City cruised past Reed Point–Rapelje 44-21 to face the Bridger Scouts in the championship game. The Scouts handed the Panthers their only conference loss of the season Jan 26

. .

Poor shooting contributed to the 49-32 loss but Southworth saw a silver lining in the team’s 2nd place finish

“The thing that I am happiest about is that even though times were tough for us, our team stayed composed and played together. It can be very frustrating at times when shots you’ve put up time and time again just aren’t falling for you and regardless of what was happening, but we remained disciplined, continued to compete and most importantly we never gave up. We played a tough Bridger team in the championship and we knew they were going to come out strong. They have a lot of experience in post season play. Last year they made it to state and still have a large portion of their core remaining. Those types of experiences are hard to replicate in practice or even during regular season games.”  

Park City faces Jordan in the first round at 2:30 p.m. today at Laurel High School. The Mustangs beat Wibaux 64-56 to take 3rd in the District 4C Tournament in Miles City.

Southworth called the Mustangs “a very fast team that likes to get out and run.

“It will be very important for us to have a short memory and we will have to come out strong to set the tone. The 4C brings some very good teams this year including Wibaux, Terry, and the Melstone Broncs. The Broncs have to be the favorite coming into the tournament with Bridger, Terry, and Plenty Coups in the mix as well. Only two teams will advance and so we are going to have to string some great games together. I do feel like we have a lot of potential and as long as we can continue to play lights out defense it will keep us in any game. We are preparing hard for this weeks tournament and we are looking forward to the upcoming challenges.”

The Panthers tip off at 2:30 p.m. today at Laurel High School.
