CHARLESTON -- As if Harmony Grove basketball couldnâ€™t get any more exciting, the senior boys proved Monday that there is no quit in them when it comes to post-season play. Winner over No. 4 Fordyce in Round 1 of the 3A State Tournament on Saturday, the Cardinals came out Monday with a win-or-go-home scenario against the No. 1 Earle Bulldogs.
Looking to take a bit of the bite out of the Dogs, Harmony Grove (25-7) used more stellar defense and good guard play to upset Earle 64-61 sending the â€˜Dogs out with an early exit.
JONESBORO â€“ Leading 33-29 after consecutive Braxton Chumley steals and layups late in the third quarter, the South No. 2 seed Benton Lady Panthers could muster just six more points the rest of the way and the East No. 3 seed Searcy Lady Lions ended Bentonâ€™s season with a 53-39 victory in the quarterfinals of the 6A State Tournament in Jonesboro Monday night.
