Knoxville and Pella Christian Girls Battle Tonight

The Knoxville Girls Basketball Squad will try to win its second game in less than a week over a team from Pella. The Panthers host Pella Christian tonight trying to even the series between the two teams. In the last meeting the Eagles got a put back from Cori Utiermarkt with just over a second remaining to win 42-41. After controlling the game Saturday afternoon against Albia, Coach Jim Utiermarkt hopes that the struggles his team had a couple of weeks ago stay in the past. Offensively, Knoxville has been playing better and the Panthers turned up the defense against Albia and forced 28 turnovers. Pella Christian is coming in with a two-game losing streak. A win by the Eagles would give them at least a share of the Little Hawkeye Conference title. You can hear the play-by-play on KNIA and KRLS starting at six.
