Community School basketball coach Ed Flory anticipated a competitive game against Carey, but the Panthers had the punch for a fourth-frame knockout.

Playing at the Fish Tank in Sun Valley Tuesday, the two Northside Conference opponents squared off in a close contest in which the teams were tied 30-30 at the end of three. In the final quarter, the visiting Panthers posted 19 points to their host's 9 to win 48-39.

"We made our foul shots in the end," Carey coach Dick Simpson said.

Indeed. The Panthers, who have won their last eight straight games, pumped in an amazing 84.5 percent of their charities against the 'Throats.

"We worked on our fouls pretty hard the other night. Maybe it paid off," Simpson said.

Panther Trevor Peck (6 rebounds), who canned four treys, led all scorers with 21 points. Brett Adamson scored 10, Tyler Chavez 5, Jacey Baird 4, Dillon Simpson 4, Wacey Barg 2 and Jarred Cenarrusa 2.

Point scorers for the Cutthroats were Caspar Brun 13, Lucas Vorsteveld 12, Alex Conn 6, Eddy Albarran 5, Chet Stephens 3.

The Community School (4-11 overall, 2-6 home) will travel to Dietrich tonight and Richfield Tuesday.

The Panthers (12-3 overall, 8-2 league) play their final four games at home. Up next: Murtaugh tonight and Magic Valley Christian on Tuesday.
