Panthers finished a great week going 3-0 by beating Citrus on the road. Josh Berrios hit a lay up and 2 free throws to turn a 1 point deficit into a 3 point lead late in the fourth quarter as the Panthers held on to beat the Hurricanes 50-47. The Panthers trailed most of the game until a monstrous dunk by DJ Smith started a run that erased a 7 point deficit midway through the 4th quarter. Lecanto was led by Nick Post who scored 22 points and pulled down 11 rebounds. Berrios and Smith chipped 10 a piece. Preston Koller, Austin Recta and Darius Gainer played great defense all night long and ignited the Panthers run with multiple steals. Panthers are on the road again Monday at Nature Coast Tech.
