STORM LAKE - Despite a 30-point, 16-rebound effort from junior Jasmine Demers, the St. Mary's girl's basketball team saw a one-point lead heading into the fourth quarter evaporate as Clay Central-Everly stole one away on the Panthers' home court, 55-49.

The Panthers trailed by four after one at 16-12, but they would rally back to knot it at 29-29 at halftime. It was a 39-38 Panther lead after three, but the Mavericks held a 17-10 edge in the final frame.

Demers connected on 13-of-25 from the field in the loss and five of her 16 rebounds were on the offensive end. She added five assists, four steals and a block. Demers is off to an impressive start for her junior year after netting 24 points, 11 rebounds and five assists in their season opening win over M-M-C.

Rachel Todd followed with a 6-for-7 shooting night to total 13 points and four rebounds. Annie Flynn had four points and three rebounds and Riley Lenhart had two points and a board.

St. Mary's hit on 22-of-50 on the night. They were 1-of-1 from three and 4-of-6 at the line.

The Panthers get their strongest test of the early season slate Friday night as they head to Newell to take on a top-five Mustang squad.
