Panthers pound Seahawks Saturday Night

(St. John's, NL) The UPEI Panthers shocked the Memorial Sea-Hawks 86-63 in the Field House Saturday night.  

The 23-point blowout comes as a shock to a Sea-Hawks team that had been rolling coming into this game. For the Panther's, this was a huge win for them. They pull back to .500 on the season, sitting only 6 points behind the Sea-Hawks for fourth place in the standings. 

Memorial sees their record fall to 10-7, and their winning streak snapped. 

Jenna Mae Ellsworth was the high woman in this game with an astounding 35 points, leading all players. She was wildly efficient on the night, going 14-21 from the field including 3-5 from 3. Forward Kiera Rigby also had a big night for the Panther's 19 points while going 5-6 from the charity stripe. 

Memorial struggled to get anything going in this one. Brooklyn Wright was 3-7 from long distance on the night, finishing with 15 points. Sydney Ezekiel was the high woman for the Sea-Hawks, chipping in 16 points.  

The Sea-Hawks will be looking to avenge this loss tomorrow afternoon when these two teams play again. The game is at 12:00 PM at the Field House. The game will also be broadcast live on AUStv.ca
