Ehrmantraut paced a 10 for 28-point effort from beyond the 3-point arc with five treys. The senior guard was backed up by 15 points from Josh Gilb, 11 points from James Kveton and 10 tallies from Eric Blaha.

Playing their second straight game on their home court, the Pirates took a 36-29 lead into the locker room at half-time. The Panthers kept step with their hosts in the second half and finished with a 36-35 scoring edge.

"I think we escaped that one. We need to shore up ourselves," Verndale Head Coach Jordan Hinkle said.

Eric Ronning netted 23 points for the Panthers and Alec Alberts scored 19. Grand Yohnke finished the night with 12 points. The Panthers were just five of 17 from three-point range for 29 percent.
