BENTON -- The Benton Lady Panthers proved that the third time really is the charm Saturday, beating the defending 6A champion Russellville Cyclones 2-1 in the 6A State Tournament semifinals.
Having lost to the Cyclones 2-1 in each of the last two postseasons, Benton kicked the monkey from its back and punched its ticket to Fayetteville for a second straight 6A final.
The win wasn’t just any victory for third-year Benton coach Heidi Cox, however. To her, this win ranks at the top.

Jackson would get out of the inning unscathed and would not let another Conway runner to third base the rest of the game giving up just three hits, three walks and striking out seven in seven innings pitched for the win.
