BENTON â€“ Despite a less-than-stellar performance, the Benton Panthers came away with a 50-44 victory over the Sheridan Yellowjackets in 7A/6A South conference play on Tuesday night in Benton Arena. It was the Panthersâ€™ 12th consecutive victory and Benton is ranked seventh in the state in the Hog Country Top 10 poll.
â€śI did not think we played well at all tonight,â€ť Benton Coach Chris Nail said. â€śWe had dead legs all night. We didnâ€™t have our usual motion. Sheridan played good. You canâ€™t say it was all us, but I didnâ€™t think we played well.
