HOUSTON COUNTY, Ga. -- The Perry Panthers improved to 3-0 on the young season thanks to a 69-55 win over the Houston County Bears on Tuesday night.

The score was tied at 16 after one quarter of play and the Bears went into the half only down two. But the Panthers defense stifled the Bears offense in the third quarter allowing Perry to outscore HOCO 16-5.

Perry (3-0) hosts Veterans next Tuesday while Houston County (0-2) hosts Mary Persons on Saturday.
