The Glen Rose â€śbrought the sticksâ€ť Friday against Cutter Morning Star, winning 19-6 at home.
The Beavers (8-4, 2-0 3A-5) jumped out to an early lead, which eventually proved to be too much for the Eagles to overcome, and the game was called after five innings.
Head coach Chase Meyers said, â€śI was happy with the way we hit the ball, and we ran the bases well, aggressively.
â€śAlso, we made some nice plays in the field. We had one error or two, but all in all not bad.â€ť
BENTON â€” Leading the game 2-1 in the bottom of the third inning, Bentonâ€™s Bailey LeVart hit a three-run home run to give the Lady Panthers a four-run cushion as Benton ended up defeating Sheridan 6-3 Friday night at home.
â€śWe have had several girls swinging a hot stick,â€ť Benton coach Eric Ryan said. â€śIt started back in Shreveport, and everybody got a good look at live pitching. Ever since then they have been real hot.
â€śThat [home run] right there just shows you when somebody gets confident in what they can do, good things will happen.â€ť
Sometimes you canâ€™t buy a goal; other times they fall out of the sky.
Goals fell out of the sky as the Bryant Lady Hornets, led by Tarra Hendricksâ€™ hat trick, easily defeated the Van Buren Lady Pointers 7-0 in conference soccer action Thursday at Hornet Stadium.
â€śIâ€™m never going to complain about a shutout,â€ť head coach Julie Long said. â€śOur defense always does a good job.Â Lindsay Brazil always does a good job on defense.â€ť
Eddie Poland and Luke Vance were named to the 6A All-State Team after the Benton Panthers finished the season as co-champions of the 6A South for the first time since 1989.
Poland, a three-year letterman, finished the season averaging nine points and three steals per game.
â€śHe finished the season strong for us and was probably our best defender,â€ť Benton coach Chris Nail said.
Nail said Poland will be visiting North Central Community College in Missouri, which is the same one former Panther Brandon Jones attended a couple of years ago.
