OGDEN — The Panorama boys lifted their record to 13-4 overall and 9-3 in WCAC play with conference wins at Ogden Tuesday and at Des Moines Christian Saturday.

Panorama topped Ogden (9-8, 6-6), 66-46, and DMC (14-2, 11-1), 52-51.

Saturday’s win stopped a three-game skid for Panorama. The guests led, 20-12, after one quarter, but saw their lead trimmed to 28-27 at the intermission. The Lions tied the game, at 38-all, entering the fourth quarter, with the Panthers holding on in the final seconds when a rushed shot from the hosts was off-target.

Adam Witty had 13 points, Ben Loverude 11, and Elijah Hess 10 for DMC.
