HASKELL â€” The Harmony Grove Cardinals heading into their second season as a football team. With a finishing record of 2-8 last season, including blow-out wins over Poyen and Cutter Morning Star, the Cardinals are looking to double their wins and try to stun some teams in 2011.
The preseason for the Cardinals ended on Thursday with a three team scrimmage at Cardinal Stadium. With Woodlawn and Cutter Morning Star participating, the Cardinals looked to get some much needed work in. That's exactly what they did.
The Benton Panthers finished off their preseason on a little bit of a shaky note heading into the final week of preparation before the 2011 season. Head coach Scott Neathery played his starters for only one half against Malvern on Tuesday. After playing two 15 minute quarters, the Panthers and Leopards were knotted up at 10-10. Benton could have scored more with a little more focus on the field.
â€śWe are still a little sloppy,â€ť Neathery said. â€śWe still need to polish up.â€ť
The Benton girls and boys golf team finish second out of four teams at a nine hole tournament at Sheridan.
For the girls, Grace Lile shot a 48, Kaylen Presnall shot a 50, Braxton Chumley shot a 52, Kayla Payne shot a 54 and Karli Lipinski shot a 57.
They girls finished second to Lake Hamilton, who shot a 148 as a team. Benton shot a 150 and Sheridan shot a 157.
For Sheridan, Brooke McMellan shot a 46, Camden Nutt shot a 53 and Judy Brown shot a 58.
â€śWe just got to get a couple girls down there in the 40s,â€ť coach Chad Pitts said.
