The Panthers from Westampton Tech has been doing what they are expected to do throughout their basketball season. Early on, Westampton Tech have been winning those games they are expected to win, and staying competitive in the tough games on their schedule. When the visiting Medford Tech team took the court, the Panthers had control of this game from the opening tip-off. Westampton Tech cruised to an 84-44 victory.

Westampton Tech started their season on a winning note with a 5-1 record. They ran into a few stumbling blocks losing to Delran and Holy Cross. They did hand Burlington City their first divisional loss of the season but remain in second place behind them in the Patriot Division. The Panthers would defeat Delran the second time and extended their mini-streak to two games, as they would outscore the Jaguars 52-19 at the half. Kyle Ward led the Panthers with 15 points, Steve Vallery added 11 points and Jahrelle Benson finished with 10 points. Lance Linton dropped in 14 points and Pedro Rivera finished with 12 points for the Jaguars from Medford Tech.
