The Lester B. Pearson junior boys basketball team has picked up where they left off prior to the holiday break, downing the St. Peter Knights 68-51 on Thursday for their second win in a row since the New Year and sixth in a row this season.

After posting a perfect 4-0 record in the pre-season, the Panrthers are 2-0 in 2013 with wins over the St. Matthew Tigers and now the St. Peter Knights.

The key to the Panthers victory over the Knights was an explosive first quarter in which they outscored their opponents 22-6.

With the Knights putting up very little in the way of defence, the Panthers managed to pour in another 20 points in the second quarter to take a 42-19 lead at the half;

After a lacklustre third quarter in which the Knights managed to reduce the deficit to 16 points, the Panthers scored 17 in the fourth to win going away.

Devian McDonald scored a game high 19 points for Lester B. Luis Puenta added 14 points, Muhammed Kabeya scored 13 and Jordan Corcoran added another 12 points.

The top scorer for the Knights was Daymon Williams with 17 points. Alex Dipenta had 14 for the home team including a trio of three point baskets in the second quarter.

With the win the Panthers are managing to keep pace with the Louis Riel Rebelles in the East Division. Both teams have an identical 2-0 record with four games remaining. Due to a quirk in the schedule in which they won't play each other before the playoffs they could both end up 6-0, although the Panthers did beat the Rebelles in their final pre-season game on Dec. 14.

The Panthers play St. Patrick's next followed by De La Salle, Beatrice-Desloges and Lisgar.

As far as the knights are concerned, they'll be looking to bounce back against Lisgar next Monday.
