WALSENBURG- The John Mall Lady Panthers fell to the Fowler Grizzlies 63-15 last Thursday. It looked like the Lady Cats would give them a run for their money when the Cats opened up a 4-1 lead. The Grizzlies came back with a 9-0 run, extended their lead 12-8 after the first and never looked back. The Grizzlies executed a full-court press, forcing turnovers and converting them into points.
