NORTH LITTLE ROCK - The Central No. 2 seed Bryant Hornets will be making their third consecutive trip to the 7A State Championship game after handling the West No. 1 seed Bentonville Tigers 9-0 on Monday afternoon in the semifinals at Vince DeSalvo Stadium at Burns Park in North Little Rock. The game was originally scheduled for Saturday, but inclement weather postponed it.
There is an old saying that has been around for many, many decades: â€śYou win some, you lose some.â€ť
Those words have been muttered by coaches and athletes millions of times. The second part of the quote, â€śbut you live to fight another day,â€ť is the part that isnâ€™t always the case.
The Benton Panthersâ€™ season came to an end when their rival conference foe Sheridan Yellowjackets upended them 3-2 in the semifinal of the 6A State Tournament on Saturday at Mountain Home High School.
â€śIt was a heck of a game,â€ť Benton Coach Mark Balisterri said. â€śWe just didnâ€™t get the big hit. We had a couple chances to score some runs, but couldnâ€™t get the big hit. We outhit them. They just scored one more than we did and thatâ€™s basically all there was to it.â€ť
