EL DORADO – The Benton Lady Panthers escaped with a 54-49 overtime victory over the Jonesboro Lady Hurricane on Tuesday in the first round of the 6A State Playoffs in El Dorado. The South No. 1 seed Lady Panthers(22-7) were down two points with 4.5 seconds left in regulation against the No. 8 seed Lady Hurricane.

“They’re not your normal No. 8 seed,” Benton Coach Jerry Chumley said. “They’re pretty dad gum athletic and pretty good. We had a 10-point lead in the second half and instead of building on it, we let them get back into it.”
