Lady Panthers 10-0 in conference

February 8, 2012

PEARCY – The Benton Lady Panthers are probably forgetting what losing feels like. The Lady Panthers won their 12th consecutive game and improved to 10-0 in the 6A South conference with a 52-25 victory of the Lake Hamilton Lady Wolves on Tuesday night. And again, defense has been the force behind Benton’s success.

“We were playing just stellar defense,” Benton Coach Jerry Chumley said. “They had four field and three free throws [in the first half]. We couldn’t ask for any more defensively. The second half, it just kind of continued.”

BRYANT – The Bryant Lady Hornets fell to the Van Buren Lady Pointers 58-54 on Tuesday night in 7A/6A Central conference action in Bryant.
“Van Buren is a good team,” Bryant Coach Brad Matthews said. “They were well-prepared. They did stuff to us defensively that we haven’t seen all year.”

“We never really got into a flow offensively, but our kids continued to compete. We didn’t play very well, but such is life in the 7A Central and we got beat. They have four or five kids that they can put on the floor that can score.”

BRYANT – Three Bryant football players signed college letters of intent Wednesday on National Signing Day, but delayed their party until Friday.
“These guys are smart,” Bryant coach Paul Calley said. “They came to me and asked if they could have their party on Friday, so all of the media would come out.”

Receiver/defensive back Dillion Winfrey signed with Central Arkansas, linebacker Marshall Everett inked with Arkansas-Monticello and running back Karon Dismuke signed with Southern Arkansas.
