HASKELL -- The Harmony Grove Cardinals (15-4 6-3) gave up 21 points on turnovers in their 53-47 loss to Mayflower (11-3 8-1) on Friday night at the Daniel Henley Fieldhouse. After falling to the Eagles earlier in the season, 54-52, the Cardinals hoped for revenge, but the athleticism and guard play of Mayflower was too much in the loss.
BRYANT â€“ Junior guard Jakeria Otey started and finished the game by missing two free throws for the Bryant Lady Hornets, but in between she put on solid offensive display scoring 18 points to help lift the Hornets to a 43-38 win against the Texarkana Razorbacks in a conference game at home in Bryant Friday night.
The win improved the Lady Hornets to 2-3 in conference play and 6-9 overall. Texarkana started the game off quickly by taking a 9-3 lead early in the game that forced Bryant Head Coach Brad Matthews to take a timeout.
TEXARKANA â€“ The Benton Panthers picked up an important road victory on Tuesday night upending the Arkansas High Razorbacks 58-42 in Texarkana.
â€śIâ€™m very pleased our guards are coming along,â€ť Benton Coach Dwaine Fishburn said. â€śIn over 25 years, Iâ€™ve never coached a team that has this low turnovers as this group has. Weâ€™re only averaging five to six turnovers a game and thatâ€™s remarkable.â€ť
Benton (12-5, 3-1 South) would lead 12-9 after the first quarter before expanding their lead to 30-17 over the Razorbacks at halftime.
