Paint Branch wins over Old Mill 4A Semi Final Girls Basketball

Paint Branch Panthers HS wins big over Old Mill Patriots HS Varsity Girls Basketball in the 4A MPSSAA State Semi Finals.

In the first half the Lady Panthers of Paint Branch were so sluggish that they kept the Old Mill Lady Patriots in the game until the end. When the pressure was put on them by the coaches and the Lady Patriots, it was a very physical game with both teams having 6’1 or higher players, causing a lot of in the paint shooting. Numerous players on the Paint Branch side had 3 or more fouls, in the first half making them play smarter and more moving their feet, to play defense. After halftime the Paint Branch Panthers began to run the Old Mill Patriots Up and down court, but when the Lady Patriots seize an opportunity, they were unable to finish the shoot, or the lay up to help put up some points.

Final Score Paint Branch 70-48 Old Mill
