SPRINGDALE â€“The Benton Panthers lost for the first time this year dropping to the Springdale Bulldogs 61-56 in Springdale on Friday night.
â€śThe game was pretty simple,â€ť Benton Coach Chris Nail said. â€śWe got off to a really slow start. Theyâ€™re a really good team. We just kind of dug ourselves a hole there.â€ť
The Panthers (8-1) were down 17-7 after the first quarter and 32-22 at the half, but made a run in the third quarter to cut it to within three points going into the fourth quarter. Benton was within one before falling by five points.
