Daviess County set for rematch with South Warren

The Daviess County Panthers continued their 2020 revenge tour Saturday when they took down McCracken County 1-0 in Paducah to advance to tonight’s Elite Eight game to take on South Warren in Bowling Green at Warren Central.

The Panthers have outscored their opponents 35-3 since postseason started back on Oct. 12 as they’ve scored 75 goals this season and allowed just 16.

Hunter Clark leads the team in goals with 20 and assists with 14 while Tanner Andersen (15 goals, 7 assists) and Declan Armistead (13 goals, 7 assists) have also helped lead the Panther offense but with several players with goals this season, goals can come from anywhere for DC.
