SMITH  SANDY SPRING — From the start of the game, the Paint Branch Panthers varsity boys basketball team determined to give the home team Sherwood Warriors a hard time Friday night in every aspect of the game. By the fourth quarter, an exhausted Warriors squad could barely muster the strength to try and stop the Panthers juggernaut as the margin continued to widen, ultimately ending with the final score 77-40.

With the victory, the Panthers remain at the top of the County leaderboards, with only one loss to their name.

“Just play day by day, practice by practice. Just try to improve as a team and keep on working. We want to play every game like we’re the underdog,” said Dudley on the Panthers’ mentality that keeps them going.
