The Benton Lady Panthers were down 24-16 to the Texarkana Lady Razorbacks in the first set of their match Tuesday night in 7A/6A South conference play at Benton Arena. The Lady Panthers would not lose the first set scoring the last 10 points of the match to win it 26-24 and propel them to a 3-0 sweep of Texarkana. After the first set, the Lady Panthers used their momentum to take the next two 25-15 and 25-19.
