Friday offers Paradise last chance at win

By Messenger Staff | Published Wednesday, November 7, 2012

{{{*}}}Hope of getting a victory this season comes down to the final game of the season for the Paradise Panthers.

Paradise (0-9, 0-5) travels to Ponder (2-7, 0-5) Friday for a 7:30 p.m. kickoff.

The Panthers came very close to upsetting rival Boyd last week but could not generate enough offense. Paradise could only muster 60 total yards against the Yellowjackets and had a costly interception that ended up putting the game away.

A win would send the Panthers out on a good note as they head into the offseason.

Ponder has had their share of struggles, too, going winless in district play.

The Lions have had two weeks to prepare for the Panthers after coming off their bye week.

Although they don’t have a league win, Ponder still has been putting up some points. The Lions are averaging nearly 20 points per game in district.

Their two wins came against Alvord and Castleberry early in the season.
