BENTON PUNT

Benton senior linebacker Jaden Woolbright blocks one of his two blocked punts in a 41-31 Panther victory over El Dorado Friday at Memorial Stadium in El Dorado. Woolbright also shined offensively with three rushing touchdowns.

In a back-and-forth affair, the Benton Panthers, down early in the second half, came back to claim a 41-31 victory over the El Dorado Wildcats on the road at Memorial Stadium Friday. The win, their fourth in a row, keeps the Panthers undefeated at 4-0 in the 6A West Conference, while dropping the Wildcats 0-4 in league play. 

Tied 10-10 midway through the second quarter, the Panthers (4-3) put together an 11-play, 96-yard drive capped by senior D’Anthony Harper’s 7-yard touchdown run to give the Panthers a 17-10 lead and momentum heading into the second half.
