On January 15th, Lindbergh took down Mehlville 49-42 in a game where both teams were missing key players. The same teams met in the same gym tonight, this time at full strength, in the Class 5 District 2 Championship. It has been a long time since Mehlville took home a district title, but the Panthers came out strong right from the tip and cruised to a 53-35 victory. Mehlville’s defense was suffocating for four quarters. Despite an inspiring effort by the Flyers and a late rally that cut the deficit to 9, they were no match for the dynamic junior trio of Davion Bradford, Dylan Branson, and Lamontay Daughtery. Here are our biggest takeaways from this district title tilt.
