The Panthers started fast again in the second half, scoring 14 straight points. Bossier fought back and the game was tied at 41 early in the fourth quarter. The Panthers scored four straight, though, and never trailed again.

Juwon Johnson led Parkway’s balanced scoring attack with 13 points. Juwon Johnson added 11, Keondre Wudtee nine, Niki Edwards eight and Tristan Hill seven.

Larry Robinson led Bossier (5-9) with 17 points, and Kentrell Hardy chipped in with 11.

The last three minutes of the game were played under a cloud after Bossier’s Chris Davenport collided with a teammate and went down hard on the floor. The teammate got up but Davenport stayed on the court face down.

Holding his hands to his head, Davenport was eventually helped off the court and to a seat on the bench where he kept his eyes closed while being attended to. Almost immediately after the game ended, he was transported by ambulance to a local hospital for further evaluation.

Parkway put four players in double figures in its victory over ASH Saturday. Lynn led the way with 19 points. Johnson scored 15 and Niki Edwards 14. William McKnight and Trey Rogers had 11 each.

At Haughton Friday, the Bucs got 15 points from Ja’marcia Banks and 14 from Javonte Woodard in the win over Lakeside. Cody Lilly added 11.
