Panthers half way to perfection

GRANGER- The Granger Panthers are half way home as their pursuit of perfection will surely be a big storyline to follow in the 2nd half of the season. The Panthers are looking to join an exclusive club as the LaPorte Sox are the only team in ORWBL history to have a perfect regular season, doing so in 2008.

It is no secret that the Panthers have been absolutely dominant so far this season. They are outscoring their opponents 155-40 which is just absolutely ridiculous if you think about it.

However, critics will note that the Panthers schedule has been incredibly weak to start the season. Their first four opponents have a combined record of 11-34 and as of now, the Lynn Street Leprechauns are the toughest opponent that they have faced.

While there schedule so far leaves a lot to be desired, the Panthers are doing what great teams do and that is to beat whoever is on the schedule. Therefore you can’t really knock Granger for beating up on the teams that they are supposed to beat up on.

Looking ahead to their final 12 games, a path to perfection is very much within reach. Next up on the schedule is their arch rival, the Twin Branch Billy Goats.

It is no secret that the Goats have been a disappointment so far after winning 20 games in the regular season last year. They currently sit at 5-7 and will have to play at the top of their game if they want to steal one from the Panthers. Recently traded away from Granger, Tyler Serosynski will be making his Goats debut which should certainly help their chances.

At this point, it doesn’t seem like Granger will be getting much worth note in the trade.
