The Panthers have a tradition; they would give it their all no matter who they play. Without a doubt, on the biggest game of their season, they gave it all they had. Yesterday, when the sun was at its peak, the Panthers faced off against the Killian Cougars for the District Semi-Final game. These two teams were evenly matched, but all it will take is a single mistake to tip the game to one side.
Palmetto for the first time since 2007 was able to host District playoffs this year. The field looked absolutely perfect for the game. The game started with cheers and screams, the surrounding was full of energy and the crowd was ecstatic. Every player on the field had fire in their eyes because this game could be their last. Finally, the game's first pitch was thrown and the District playoff has begun. Through the first three innings the game was tied 0-0, but during the fourth inning the first mistake was made was made by the Panthers and they suffered from it. By the end of the fourth inning, the game was 5-0 with Killian taking the lead. The Panther battled in the last three innings, but they only managed to bring two runs in. As a result, the Panthers lost the game and for many seniors it was the last high school game of their careers.
Tear were shed in that dugout, but we came out strong because everyone knew that they did whatever they possibly could and gave their very all in that entire game. This year would be one for the books.
