BENTON â€” For the first time in his 21 years at Benton High School, coach Mark Balisterri witnessed the impossible. After trailing 11-0 after the top of the second inning, the Panthers were able to kick, scratch and crawl back to defeat Sheridan 12-11 at home Wednesday afternoon.
â€śIâ€™ve never had a team down 11-0 and come back like that,â€ť Balisterri said. â€śWe came back because we hit the ball.
â€śCarson came in and just a phenomenal job [pitching] after being roughed up for five runs in the second.â€ť
