BENTON â€“ Benton Sport Shop couldnâ€™t overcome a slow start while allowing 15 hits in a 12-4 loss to the Sylvan Hills Bruins on Bill Perry Field at Bernard Holland Park in Benton on Tuesday.
â€śSylvan Hills is a great team,â€ť Benton Coach Steven Tew said. â€śThey hit the ball very well against us. The good thing is none of us gave up. We rallied back there in the end and that was promising. We got a couple of guys banged upâ€¦ weâ€™ll be ready by district tournament.â€ť
