Panthers fall to Gilbert Christian

The Panthers faced the Gilbert Christian Knights last Friday in Gilbert.  The game was a non conference game meaning it does not count against the Panthers on their journey to state.

The Panthers lost 62-14.  After a series of fumbles and lost routes it became increasingly difficult for the Panthers to keep the score from creeping up on them.  The Knights had some quick footed running backs that broke through Panther defense without any hesitation.  Last year the two were matched up and the Panther pummled the Knights.  This year it seems the Knights were a totally different team.

While the score was not in the Panther’s favor the team still worked hard despite injuries and some tough plays.  Louie Fuentes scored two running touchdowns and threw for 191 yards.  Recieving those passes were:  A. Mendoza 4 for 34 yards, R. Villalobos 7 – 99 yards, M. Padilla 1-23 yards, C. Villalobos 3-30 yards and J. Aguilar 1-5yards.  The Panthers rushed for 191 yards and had 31 total tackles.

The Panthers will play the Hayden Lobo’s at home on Friday night.  The Lobo’s are currently 1-2.  Pre-sale tickets are available at the school.  Please see related story.
