By Richard Greene

Falling behind 49-41 inside the final two minutes, the Slidell Greyhounds’ season appeared to be slipping away.

Using their length and athleticism on the perimeter, the Lady Panthers jumped passing lanes all night, as Slidell failed to get into any rhythm offensively. Unable to crack Gorman’s defense, the Lady Hounds fell Friday night in the Class A Region III regional semifinal at Mansfield 43-29.
