PORTAL — The Portal Panthers have found themselves in some close games over the last couple of weeks, but they weren’t playing around against Emanuel County Institute Friday night. The Panthers (16-5, 8-1 Region 3-A) scored the first 17 points of the night and hardly let up from there, coasting to a 63-40 victory. “This was a great game for us,” Portal coach Jeff Brannen said.
