BENTON â€“ Just as in their blowout loss at El Dorado (49-25) on Tuesday, the Benton Lady Panthers held a three-point lead at halftime against the Pine Bluff Fillies at Benton Arena on Tuesday, but couldnâ€™t hold on and fell 38-36 in 7A/6A South Conference play.
â€śWe just had a couple things not go our way,â€ť Benton Coach Jerry Chumley said. â€śIt was a battle right there to the end. We were down, fought hard and gave ourselves a chance to tie and win it, we just didnâ€™t make it happen there at the end.â€ť
An early morning accident on Interstate 30 eastbound at the Reynolds Road exit involving three vehicles closed the highway. One individual was evacuated by helicopter and one fatality has been reported. Additional information will be reported as it becomes available.
