Benton loses 2nd straight

February 6, 2014

BENTON – 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 couldn’t hold on and fell 38-36 in 7A/6A South Conference play.
“We just had a couple things not go our way,” Benton Coach Jerry Chumley said. “It 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 didn’t make it happen there at the end.”

Miners snap streak

ASHDOWN – 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.
“We started off kind of slow,” Bauxite Coach Andy Brakebill said. “The body language was kind of iffy. It’s one of those deals you lose five in a row and your confidence is shaken. It was almost like, ‘Oh no, here we go again.’ We finally got to clicking a little bit better.”

Panthers whip Wildcats

January 30, 2014

EL DORADO – After an uninspiring first half of play, the Benton Panthers took it to the El Dorado Wildcats 65-39 in 7A/6A South Conference play on Tuesday night in El Dorado. The Panthers improve to 14-5 overall and 5-1 in the South.
“I thought the first half, rebounding-wise, we were very lackadaisical,” Benton Coach Dwaine Fishburn said. “We let their athleticism get to us. They hit the boards hard against us. I was disappointed by our defensive rebounding.
“We weren’t hungry or played with a purpose in the first half.”
