EL DORADO â€“ The Benton Lady Panthers snapped two big streaks on Friday night as they defeated the El Dorado Lady Wildcats 31-20 in El Dorado for the first time in seven years. Benton also snapped their current seven-game losing streak with the victory.
â€śIt was a good win for us,â€ť Benton Coach Jerry Chumley said. â€śWe stopped two seven-game losing streaks â€“ one that weâ€™re currently on and the one down at El Dorado.â€ť
Senior guard Braxton Chumley had her second straight 16-point game in the win, though the Lady Panthers (8-9, 1-2 South) didnâ€™t have a good offensive night.
WALDRON â€“ Though the Bauxite Lady Miners improved to 3-3 in the 7-4A Conference with a 50-29 victory over the Waldron Lady Bulldogs on the road Friday, Coach Cody Lambert, though happy with the win, didnâ€™t think his team played as well as it should have.
â€śWe didnâ€™t play very good, didnâ€™t execute our offense very well,â€ť Lambert said. â€śWe didnâ€™t get the loose balls, didnâ€™t block out very well, we just didnâ€™t do a very good job. But itâ€™s good when you can mess up on a lot of things and still have a dominate victory.â€ť
