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 Benton’s season record to 7-1.
“It’s always nice to win the home opener,” Panther Head Coach David Torres said. “We got off to a bit of a slow start, but we’re 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.”

Bauxite wins it ugly

BAUXITE – 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 didn’t play their best ball.
“It was an ugly game to say the least,” Harrison said. “Pottsville is a good team who is constantly in the 4A state tournament. We looked sluggish tonight. We didn’t execute like we normally would, but I thought defensively we played pretty hard.”
