The Benton Freshman Panthers, behind 13 points from Jackson Oulch and 12 points from Clay Anderson, defeated Cabot North 39-21 Monday night. The win improves Bentonâ€™s season record to 7-1.
â€śItâ€™s always nice to win the home opener,â€ť Panther Head Coach David Torres said. â€śWe got off to a bit of a slow start, but weâ€™re able to speed up the game halfway through the first quarter. Cabot North is a big, long team and we were able to get them into an up-tempo game.â€ť
BAUXITE â€“ A hot start on offense in the first half and stingy play on defense in the second half helped push the Bauxite Lady Miners (4-2) past the Pottsville Apaches by a score of 50-38 on Tuesday night.
Despite the win, head coach Joshua Harrison still felt his team didnâ€™t play their best ball.
â€śIt was an ugly game to say the least,â€ť Harrison said. â€śPottsville is a good team who is constantly in the 4A state tournament. We looked sluggish tonight. We didnâ€™t execute like we normally would, but I thought defensively we played pretty hard.â€ť
BRYANT- The Bryant Hornets led early and often in cruising to a 56-38 victory over the Fort Smith Southside Rebels on Tuesday night. The Hornets improve to 2-0 on the year.
â€śIâ€™m pleased,â€ť Bryant Coach Mike Abrahamson said. â€śI thought we played really hard. I thought they played hard and they did what they were coached to do. Thatâ€™s encouraging to me.â€ť
