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 Bentonâs season record to 7-1.
âItâs always nice to win the home opener,â Panther Head Coach David Torres said. âWe got off to a bit of a slow start, but weâre 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
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 didnât play their best ball.
âIt was an ugly game to say the least,â Harrison said. âPottsville is a good team who is constantly in the 4A state tournament. We looked sluggish tonight. We didnât execute like we normally would, but I thought defensively we played pretty hard.â
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.
âIâm pleased,â Bryant Coach Mike Abrahamson said. âI thought we played really hard. I thought they played hard and they did what they were coached to do. Thatâs encouraging to me.â
