With a two-game lead in the 6A South, Bryant is looking to distance itself from the competition in a doubleheader with Van Buren today.
Weather permitting, Bryant will host Van Buren beginning at 4 p.m. However, head coach Mike Bock said there are a handful of options â€śdepending on what the weather does.â€ť
If needed, Bock said both teams could play today at UALRâ€™s Curran Conway Field, or the Hornets could jump on a bus and head to Van Buren.
Also, the game could be rescheduled for tomorrow at either Sheridan or Van Buren.
â€śI donâ€™t think there was a game played yesterday in the state,â€ť Benton head coach Eric Ryan said Thursday morning after Wednesdayâ€™s storms postponed the scheduled game between Lake Hamilton and the Lady Panthers.
Benton (18-5, 9-1 6A South) will play at Texarkana Friday at 5 p.m. The game against Lake Hamilton has been moved to Thursday, May 5. Ryan said they considered moving the game to today, but with more bad weather expected to hit this afternoon Ryan didnâ€™t want to risk it.
Ryan said Texarkana has really improved throughout the year and are a â€śscrappy bunch.â€ť
The Bryant varsity boys soccer team finally had it.
On Monday night at Bryant stadium the boys finally were on the receiving end of a one-goal win against Little Rock Central. Bryant had suffered a one-goal loss in Little Rock to start the 7A Conference schedule.
Controversy ensued even before the ball was placed in play. Central forgot to bring their away jerseys so they had to wear white, forcing the Hornets back into the locker room to change into their blue jerseys.
