Bryant routs for 1st conf. win

January 14, 2013

LITTLE ROCK – The Bryant Lady Hornets picked up their first 7A/6A South conference win of the season with a 61-14 drubbing of the JA Fair Lady War Eagles on Friday night in Little Rock. Ten different Lady Hornets scored in the game as Bryant used a 29-0 run between the first and second quarters to propel it to the rout.
“I thought we were able to get out early,” Bryant Coach Brad Matthews said. “We got some transition baskets, got a little confidence and I thought we played well. This was a good win for us coming off a tough one Tuesday. It’s good to get back on the winning track.”

This year like many years in the past, I made the trip down to War Memorial to see the Salt Bowl between the Benton Panthers and the Bryant Hornets. Again this year over 20,000 people gathered to see this high school football game. Many doubted the crowd would be that big this year since the game was moved to the fourth week of the football season, but the naysayers were wrong. The Saline County shootout drew another huge crowd. That is what I call having a passion for football.

BENTON – It is not too often that there is a basketball game played with two coaches with the same ties to both schools playing. But for Benton Freshmen Panthers and Harmony Grove Cardinals’ junior varsity, Wednesday’s opening-round match of the Benton Classic had just that.
First-year head coach Dexter Hendrix, a 2006 Benton graduate returned to the same floor that he played on as he led his team into the Benton Arena to battle Panther Head Coach David Torres. Torres was the longtime senior girl’s coach at Harmony Grove before moving to Benton in the early 2000s.
