  Panthers take control in Collinsville
by Carlee Mahan | Kahoki Sports Reporter          31-JAN-2015

After the hard fought and continuous effort put forth throughout all four quarters of the game, the Kahoks lost to the Panthers in last night’s game, 70-52. 

During the first quarter it looked as though the match-up would have been a close game all the way to the end.  Panthers only led the Kahoks 12-8 with the first eight minutes of the game closing.  However, O’Fallon’s went on a 20-10 scoring streak in the second quarter and the Kahoks never made a full recovery. 

As the Panthers closed out the first half 32-15 with only seconds left on the clock, Kahok guard Anfirnee Wilkinson hit a half-court buzzer-beating shot that sent the crowd to their feet.  When the buzzer sounded, the team carried the excitement to the locker room, and the score rounding out the first half was 32-18 in O’Fallon’s favor. 

The momentum that Wilkinson's shot brought going into the third quarter and the roar of the Kahok fans would not be enough to carry Collinsville very far the rest of the game.  O’Fallon scored another 20 points and Collinsville put up 19 to end the third quarter. 

Starting the fourth quarter with the score at 52-37, the Collinsville team never stopped fighting.  Both the teams, foul-ridden, were in double bonus by the early seconds of the last quarter.  A hard foul by Collinsville senior Sean Davis mid-way through the fourth knocked Panther player Donovan Franklin to the ground and sent him to the line.  Franklin hit both of his free throws adding another two points to his game high of 36. 

Panthers out-scored the Kahoks yet again in the last quarter of the game 18-15 making the final score 70-52.  Collinsville’s defense being no match for Franklin, he led the night with 36 points.  Darien McClain followed with 9 points, Caleb Wegner with 7, Alex Orr with 6, and Nathan Cokenour, Parker Rustio, and Chance Armstrong each with 4. 

Leading scorer for the Kahoks was sophomore Ronnie Midgett with 18, followed by Emondre Rickman with 12, Harrison Wethers with 6, Wilkinson with 5, Brett Langley for 3, and Davis and Zack Flora both chipped in 2. 

The Kahoks with their previous 5-0 run in Jerseyville earning them the championship trophy just couldn’t pull through with another victory last night, forcing their winning streak to a halt.  Collinsville fans left Fletcher Gymnasium in hopes for a Kahok victory February 6th at Granite City. 

  Kahoks 5-0 at Jerseyville; win tournament
24-JAN-2015 — The Kahoks go undefeated at this year's Jerseyville Tournament to become tourmey champs.

  What happend to "Yea Purple, Yea White?"
This simple but powerful cheer was traditionally yelled at the break between third and fourth quarters of home games.  Everybody knew it, so there was always a big crowd response that really got the Purple Palace rocking for the final quarter.  What happened to that?  I'm just sayin'.
