The Knox Central Panthers met their first 51st District opponent of the season on Jan. 2 in the Pineville Mountain Lions. The Panthers handed Pineville a 35 point loss behind a 33 point performance by Senior Matthew Barger.


Head Coach Jamie Voight said about the game, “I thought the second half of the game was a lot better than the first half. We came out with some intensity and we built a quick lead but then it evened out the rest of the half.”

“Even if we get some guys with fouls the intensity can not drop. We have to keep the same intensity that we start the game all the way through.”
