Benton’s second-half run proves decisive against Bryant White
In a nip-and-tuck game, the Bryant White Hornets eighth grade team of Bryant Middle School held a 20-18 lead midway through the third quarter. A free throw by Jake Forst and a driving layup by Tristan Calhoun had produced the advantage.
But when Graham Chenault drove for an answering bucket with 3:32 left in the period, it ignited a 12-2 run for the Benton Panthers.
The Hornets were unable to recover from that as the Panthers nailed down a 35-29 victory at the BMS gym on Thursday.
