The Interstate 8 race heated up Friday as the two teams vying for third place battled at Pennfield.

The hosting Panthers welcomed the Marshall Redhawks for their second meeting on the season. Marshall was able to come back and earned a 53-43 victory December 21st. Pennfield looked to return the favor in our Game of the Night on Winter Festival night. With the two top teams in the I-8 tangling Friday, Coldwater and Parma Western, the conference standings tighten up heading into the final two weeks of the regular season.
