Neathery: 'We are still a little sloppy'

August 25, 2011

The Benton Panthers finished off their preseason on a little bit of a shaky note heading into the final week of preparation before the 2011 season. Head coach Scott Neathery played his starters for only one half against Malvern on Tuesday. After playing two 15 minute quarters, the Panthers and Leopards were knotted up at 10-10. Benton could have scored more with a little more focus on the field.
“We are still a little sloppy,” Neathery said. “We still need to polish up.”
