BENTON â€“ It didn't start well for the Benton Panthers against their arch rival Bryant Hornets on Friday night at Benton Arena, but a 20-0 run from the end of the first quarter until the beginning of the third quarter propelled the Panthers to a 41-34 victory over the Hornets. It was both teams' first 7A/6A South conference game of the season.
HASKELL -- The Harmony Grove Lady Cardinals (3-11 1-4) entered Friday nightâ€™s 5-3A conference game in dire need of a victory of any kind. After losing nine straight contests, the Lady Cardinals welcomed Little Rock Episcopal into town for Homecoming and walked away with an exciting 53-39 victory. The win snapped the losing streak and beat the Lady Wildcats for the fifth straight time under Head Coach John White.
