BENTON â Benton senior wide receiver J.V. Davis will be joining some fellow Panthers on the football field soon. Davis signed a letter of intent to play for the Arkansas Tech Wonder Boys on Wednesday afternoon at the Benton Sports Complex field house to join former Panthers Wallace Foote and Chase Pigue.
BENTON â Just as in their blowout loss at El Dorado (49-25) on Tuesday, the Benton Lady Panthers held a three-point lead at halftime against the Pine Bluff Fillies at Benton Arena on Tuesday, but couldnât hold on and fell 38-36 in 7A/6A South Conference play.
âWe just had a couple things not go our way,â Benton Coach Jerry Chumley said. âIt was a battle right there to the end. We were down, fought hard and gave ourselves a chance to tie and win it, we just didnât make it happen there at the end.â
ASHDOWN â The Bauxite Miners defeated the Ashdown Panthers 58-50 on the road to snap a five-game losing streak in 7-4A Conference play on Tuesday.
âWe started off kind of slow,â Bauxite Coach Andy Brakebill said. âThe body language was kind of iffy. Itâs one of those deals you lose five in a row and your confidence is shaken. It was almost like, âOh no, here we go again.â We finally got to clicking a little bit better.â
