Schoonover, Holthaus and Siegert had four blocks, each, plus Franklin’s three. Of the 18 Pana kills, they only had 13 with assists.

Court defense wasn’t a big factor for St. Anthony and not a big enough factor for Pana. St. Anthony only needed 17 digs to get the win, in part, because Pana only recorded 14 digs trying to stave off the Bulldog attack.
