The Panthers (10-5) visited the Thunderdome, Tuesday, Jan. 30.

After a slow start for both teams, the Streaks led 12- 8 on the strength of Rigo Ramos’ seven points in the quarter.

The Streaks maintained a 20-14 lead in the second after a Ramos bucket with three minutes in the half, but then went ice cold from the field. Stryker took advantage, scoring the final eight points of the quarter to take the momentum and a 22-20 lead into the half.

Archbold opened the third with a 10-0 run, led by Bryce Williams with six points.

Stryker’s Izayah Ferguson stopped the run with a conventional three-point play to cut the difference to 30-25.

Both teams exchanged baskets the rest of the quarter as Archbold held a fivepoint lead, 39-34, going into the final eight minutes.

Stryker’s Logan Boetz opened the fourth with a deuce, but Archbold answered with buckets by Ramos and Austin Wiemken to go up 43-36.

Boetz sunk both free throws after Archbold was assessed a technical foul. Williams answered with a three-point play for a 46-38 lead.

Stryker played catch-up the rest of the night, but Ramos’ dunk at the end of the game punctuated the 58-45 win for Archbold.

Ramos led all scorers with 17 points. Williams and Wiemken added 16 and 13 points, respectively.

Ferguson led the Panthers with 15.

Archbold was 18-27 at the foul line, while Stryker was 9-14.
