HASKELL - The Harmony Grove Cardinals have seen their fair share of ups and downs this season. But when it come to beating a rival like Glen Rose, it is all ups for the moment. Earlier in the season, the Cardinals dominated the Beavers on the road, winning huge 60-36. At the time, that was the Cardinalsâ€™ second win of the season.
PEARCY â€“ 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 Bentonâ€™s success.
â€śWe were playing just stellar defense,â€ť Benton Coach Jerry Chumley said. â€śThey had four field and three free throws [in the first half]. We couldnâ€™t ask for any more defensively. The second half, it just kind of continued.â€ť
BRYANT â€“ The Bryant Lady Hornets fell to the Van Buren Lady Pointers 58-54 on Tuesday night in 7A/6A Central conference action in Bryant.
â€śVan Buren is a good team,â€ť Bryant Coach Brad Matthews said. â€śThey were well-prepared. They did stuff to us defensively that we havenâ€™t seen all year.â€ť
â€śWe never really got into a flow offensively, but our kids continued to compete. We didnâ€™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.â€ť
