CANYON — Farwell’s girls ran into a buzzsaw on Monday night.

The season came to an end for the Lady Blue in a 65-37 loss to Panhandle in a Class 2A bi-district matchup played at Canyon H.S.

The Pantherettes (19-3) may be one of the better teams in 2A. Panhandle’s only losses this season were twice against Class 4A Canyon (24-1) and once against Class 3A Idalou (24-4).

Panhandle led 17-5 at the quarter and carried a 59-16 advantage into the final stanza before the Lady Blue (19-11) outscored the Pantherettes 21-6.

No individual statistics were available on the game at press time.

One area girls team remained alive in the University Interscholastic League playoffs — Muleshoe (13-13), which was scheduled to face Canadian on Tuesday night at Canyon H.S.

Meantime, two boys squads begin postseason play this week with bi-district contests, both slated for Littlefield H.S. — Bovina (8-7) takes on Floydada (18-3) in a 7:30 p.m. (CST) tipoff on Thursday, and Farwell (24-3) faces Lockney (13-8) at 6 p.m. on Friday.
