PINE BLUFF â€“ It didnâ€™t look like it would be a blowout early in the game, but the Benton Panthers defeated the Pine Bluff Zebras 14-1 in six innings in 7A/6A South conference action on Tuesday at Taylor Field in Pine Bluff. The win places the Panthers 6-0 in the South and 12-2 overall.
BENTON - The Benton Lady Panthers have been on a tear of late, winning six of their last seven, all coming against 7A/6A South foes. On Monday, Benton traveled to Pearcy to take on the Lady Wolves of Lake Hamilton in a makeup game. With hot bats smoking for Benton, Lake Hamiltonâ€™s gloves were rather shaky as Benton romped out to a quick 9-0 lead before winning 10-1.
Stevi Berg led the game off by reaching on an error and later scored on another error, this time with Ashton Currey at the dish. Daphne Bono also scored after following Berg with a single.
BAUXITE - The Bauxite Miners jumped ahead early, but ultimately fell 11-3 to the Arkansas Baptist Eagles in 7-4A action on Monday. The Miners drop to 6-8 (1-4) with the loss.
â€śWe started out good but just didnâ€™t put them away when we needed to,â€ť Bauxite Coach Michael Mattox said. â€śWe left seven runners on base through the first three innings. With one hit, we could have blown it open, but we couldnâ€™t get it.â€ť
