Portal quarterback Hunter Oglesby, bottom, scores to give the Panthers an early lead over Claxton in the first quarter.
PORTAL — You could say that the Portal Panthers came out like a house on fire Friday night in their showdown with Claxton. You can also say that house fires are seldom good news. The Panthers started strong and fought against a bigger, deeper and more athletic football team but ultimately fell short in a 34-15 loss that moves the squad to 0-3 on the young season.
