ELK RAPIDS — Tim Reznich said the Frankfort Panthers escaped with one on Wednesday.

After leading by double-digits at halftime, the Panthers girls basketball team nearly let Elk Rapids steal a non-conference victory from them. The Panthers beared down and held on for a 58-55 win over the Elks in Elk Rapids.

The Panthers (4-3) nearly had two girls tally a double-double with Abby Hodge notching 19 points and nine rebounds while Emily Loney had 10 rebounds and nine points. Regan Thorr added 16 points and grabbed eight boards for Frankfort.

Shelby Scott was hitting shots for the Elks all night and ended up with 18 points. Sara Zamadies added 11 points for Elk Rapids (5-2).

Frankfort will travel to Onekama for a big Northwest Conference matchup on Friday while the Elks continue their four-game home stand against Charlevoix.
