Panthers win district championship over Bear Lake 57-37

February 26, 2014

POCATELLO — In the opening quarter last Friday night against American Falls, Snake River did not come out and play it's best quarter against the winless Beavers.
Tuesday night the Panthers took on Bear Lake with the 3A District 5 championship on the line and this time they were determined to show that last week's game was a fluke.
Kade Keller did his best to make sure the Panthers made a statement early and take the feisty Bears out of the game.
Keller slashes and knifed his way to the basket to a tune of a game-high 27 points, seven in the first quarter as the Panthers dominated the Bears from start to finish earning a 57-37 victory, the district title and the chance to defend their 3A state championship.
