OGDEN — Panorama was a 70-23 victor over winless Ogden Tuesday, one day after the Panthers recorded a 69-35 triumph over host Martensdale-St. Marys. The wins followed a 44-41 loss by the 14th-ranked Panthers to home standing and second-ranked Des Moines Christian Saturday.

A highlight for Panorama (14-4, 10-2 in WCAC) in Monday’s win was a personal milestone for junior guard Payton Beckman. She had 31 points in the win, surpassing the 1,000 point career plateau.

With 23 points added from Tuesday’s win, Beckman now stands fifth on the Panther all-time scoring list with 1,048 points, one more than Devyn Kemble. Older sister Bailey Beckman leads all Panthers with 1,579 points, with Olivia Godfrey (1,313) second, Elly Arganbright (1,235) third and Sidney Beckman (1,058) fourth.

Panorama led M-SM, 18-12, after one frame Monday, but used a 21-9 second quarter to open a 39-21 lead, a margin that grew to 56-29 after three quarters.

Beckman added five rebounds and six steals to her stat line, with Laci Rishel adding 10 points, six assists and six steals. Tyme Boettcher, Grace Webner, and Jaidyn Sellers had six points apiece, with both Angel Poldberg and Ella Waddle each scoring five points.

The Panthers raced a 51-11 halftime lead Tuesday in rolling past conference foe Ogden, with the Bulldogs falling to 0-17 overall and 0-12 in WCAC play.

Beckman had 23 points and Waddle 14, with Rishel and Poldberg adding nine points apiece. Boettcher had five points, Shey Storesund and Mia Waddle three each and Jaden Johnson and Sellers two each.

Panorama led DMC (15-3, 11-1), 32-24, at the intermission Saturday, only to have the Lions surge to within 37-35 with eight minutes to play. A 9-4 scoring edge down the stretch secured the win for the hosts.

Beckman, Rishel and Poldberg had eight points apiece and Storesund and Ella Waddle seven each for the guests while Boettcher had three points.
