Panthers’ pitcher, Levi Arnold, pitched a complete game, allowing only six hits in the 6-3 win. By the bottom of the fifth inning, the Panthers led 6-0. The Lions picked up three runs in the bottom of the fifth but it was not enough. Arnold and the Panthers held off the Lions’ attack for two more innings to win the title.
It was a sweet victory for the Parkers Prairie Panthers as they lost in extra innings in the 2016 state tournament. Arnold ended the game with seven innings pitched and five strikeouts while a pitching combo of Josh Peterson and Logan Pierro combined for ten strikeouts.
