CHESAPEAKE - Size doesn't matter. At least not to the Chesapeake Panthers.

The Northwest Mohawks had two players standing at 6-foot-7, but the Panthers cut them down to size as they rolled to a 56-34 win Saturday night.

Andy Stapleton scored 19 points and Trent Finley 13 as Chesapeake ran it record to 11-1 on the season.
