Two wins and a loss take Coach Shawn Cole and the Perkins County Plainsmen to a 10-10 record for the 2016-17.

PC rolled over Maxwell and Cambridge, but struggled to keep up with the Cozad Haymakers, who hit 14 baskets, nine of which were triples. 

The Plainsmen hosted the 10-7 Creek Valley Storm on Tuesday, Feb. 7 and results will appear in next week’s issue of the Grant Tribune-Sentinel. 


PC hosted Maxwell on Tuesday, Jan. 31 and rolled over the Wildcats right out of the gates. 

Josh Johnston opened with two in the bucket to give PC four points. A foul on Charles Johnson saw him at the line where he made both free throws before seizing the opportunity to sink one, putting Perkins County eight. 

Maxwell drew a foul and made both free throws for their first two points. 

Bailey Schrotberger put up a basket for PC , and was followed by Johnston, and Beck who each put in a basket as well, before Schrotberger sank the last shot of the first quarter, bringing the Plainsmen up to 16-7 over Maxwell.

Miles Lagler took the ball to the net in the first thirty seconds of the second, but Maxwell found a way to answer a minute later.
