BRYANT â€” In a battle for control of the 7A Central Conference, the Lady Hornets fell short Thursday.
Bryant lost 2-1 to conference rival North Little Rock with all three runs coming off solo home runs.
After being down 1-0 through five innings, the Charging Wildcatsâ€™ bats came to life and North Little Rock hit back-to-back home runs in the sixth to take the lead, which the Lady Hornets could never regain.
Head coach Debbie Clark said, â€śIt was all momentum. I could see it in front of my face, and I couldnâ€™t do anything about it.â€ť
The Miners beat St. Joseph 8-7 Thursday thanks to a walk-off home run by senior Kyler Hickey in the bottom of the eighth inning.

â€śWe just have to play solid defense and have a big effort on the mound.â€ť
Sophomore Chris Revas is scheduled to start as pitcher today with junior Ryan Weng, who only threw 76 pitches during Tuesdayâ€™s outing against Pulaski Robinson, a likely relief, Mattox said.
