The Bryant varsity boys soccer team finally had it.
On Monday night at Bryant stadium the boys finally were on the receiving end of a one-goal win against Little Rock Central. Bryant had suffered a one-goal loss in Little Rock to start the 7A Conference schedule.
Controversy ensued even before the ball was placed in play. Central forgot to bring their away jerseys so they had to wear white, forcing the Hornets back into the locker room to change into their blue jerseys.
BAUXITE â€” After giving up four runs in the bottom of the sixth inning, Harmony Grove coach Brandon Kelly called timeout and met with his players on the mound.
â€śI pulled the infield in and told them nobody was hurt,â€ť Kelly said. â€śThe lead wasnâ€™t safe, so it was time to bear down and get out of it.â€ť
Harmony Grove relief pitcher Bodie Harris would get out of the inning by picking off Bauxiteâ€™s Austin Harris at first base and striking out Tanner Bates to end the inning.
BAUXITE â€” In what was an otherwise even matched game Monday, a disastrous fifth inning resulted in the Miners losing their second straight game going into todayâ€™s Senior Day against Harmony Grove.
Bauxite (11-11, 2-4 4A-7) fell 10-3 to Mayflower (3A) Monday after losing 11-4 to Nashville (4A) Friday.
However, head coach Michael Mattox said, with the 4A-7 District Tournament approaching next week, â€śAll it takes is one game to sparkâ€ť a winning streak.
