LENA, Ill. (WTVO/WQRF) — The Panthers have been good enough to win the last two state championships in class 1A, and five state championships total since 2010.

The Panthers are still loaded with talented, hard-working young men. That was evident Friday night when they opened their season by whipping Eastland-Pearl City 60-6.

Junior fullback Gage Dunker rushed for three touchdowns. Jake Zeal rushed for 122 yards on seven carries. 74 of those yards came on a touchdown run. Gunar Lobdell also rushed for one touchdown in his Lena-Winslow debut. Lobdell starred at Orangeville last year.
