Parkway opened the fourth quarter with a trey from Crouch and Hawk and Bates both chipped in with a made foul shot. The lop sided three quarter was too much for the Lady Panthers to recover but Sophia Miller got the final bucket of the game for Parkway but New Bremen was able to pick up the 82-43 victory.

“Most aspect of our game were off tonight. We have to have more effort. We gave up a lot of offensive rebounds and our turnovers lead to easy buckets. It was just an off night for us,” said Parkway girls basketball coach Linda Hawk

“We had 20 plus turnovers and they got 30 points off of those turnovers and a lot of them were just fast break we weren’t getting back on defense not hustling back. They took it to the hole and we weren’t stopping them tonight,” finished Parkway coach Hawk.

New Bremen improves their record to 9-12 on the year and 2-6 in the MAC. Parkway drops to 4-16 on the season and 0-8 in the MAC.
