But this advantage in position didn't lead Prescott to victory as Panthers went on a quick 7-0 run to win this non-conference contest 41-36 Monday evening.
Durand junior guard Ambree Schlosser scored seven of her game-high 18 points during this span, sinking a three-pointer to put the home team back in front and sinking four straight free-throws.
A full-court press on Durand's part led to PHS turnovers which gave the Panthers a chance to rally after PHS's defense held them just one point through 10 minutes of the second half.
Prescott came back from a 31-19 deficit in the second half to lead 34-32 led by scoring from Jennifer Kleinschmidt, Alysse Lewis, Heather Furlong and Katelyn Miller. Kleinschmidt led PHS with 11 points.
Prescott, 2-5 overall, is back in action again tonight at Somerset. The Cardinals are at Ellsworth on Thursday.
