Salt Bowl week is here

September 18, 2012

It took three more weeks than Saline County has been used to the past several years, but Salt Bowl week is officially here. The Benton Panthers and Bryant Hornets kicked off the week with a Salt Bowl press conference at War Memorial Stadium late Monday afternoon in preparation for Friday’s Salt Bowl at WMS in Little Rock.
“This one is a little bit different in that it’s not the first game of the year,” Salt Bowl organizer Shane Broadway said. “It’s Week 4, but this one counts. This is a conference clash and there is a lot more riding on the line than just county pride.”

The Benton Lady Panthers won their seventh consecutive match and improved to 4-0 in conference with a 3-0 sweep of the Texarkana Lady Razorbacks in Texarkana on Thursday. Benton took the match 25-21, 25-17 and 26-24.
“I thought we played well,” Benton Coach Brandy Chumley said. “Overall we stayed up. We try not to give them too many points in a row and that’s our game. We had the lead and we would let them back in.”
