The Parkers Prairie girls' basketball team has proven in the last week that any team can beat another on a given night in the Little Eight Conference this season.

Four days after falling to Hillcrest Lutheran Academy, becoming the first team to lose to the Comets this season, the Panthers came out rejuvenated against a 9-3 Ashby team and ran all over the Arrows for a 75-51 victory.

Sari Noga, again, was almost unstoppable for Parkers Prairie. She did a little bit of everything for the Panthers on her way to a triple-double with 28 points, 15 rebounds and 11 assists. She also added six steals on the night.

Noga was especially dominant in the second half. She scored 21 in the final 18 minutes, coming off screens and hitting three-pointers, while also keeping the defense honest by driving to the basket for some easy buckets.

Noga and Jazmyn Dorn helped the Panthers blow open what was a three-point game at the half by scoring 46 in the final 18 minutes.

Dorn had 16 on the night, 14 of those came in the second.

"In the Little Eight, you have to come ready to play because there is no predicting the winner," Ashby head coach John Kent said. "Tonight we got outscored, outplayed and out-hustled."

Amanda Johnson tried to keep the Arrows in the game with 21 points, but the Panthers looked like a team that wanted to come out and prove a point after a disappointing loss to the Comets in their previous game.

The loss was only the Arrows' second in LEC action and it was a big one as Brandon-Evansville beat Rothsay 65-34 to move into a second place tie with the Arrows at 5-2.

For the Panthers, the win moved them to 2-5 in the LEC and maybe gives them some momentum heading into the final month of conference play.
