No upset this time: Bryant boys bounce Benton
They weren’t going to let it happen again.
A year ago, the Bryant Hornets soccer team was laying waste to the rest of the South Conference on the way to the program’s first league championship and, ultimately, their best season overall so far. Among the teams that the unbeaten Hornets had dismissed was the rival Benton Panthers at Benton, 3-1. But when Benton made the return trip to Bryant, the Panthers stunned the Hornets, 2-1, to put the lone blemish on their league record.
Fast-forward to this year and, once again, the Hornets are wading through the conference by a composite margin of 46-4 including a 5-2 win at Benton.
On Thursday night, the Panthers made the return trip with a little déjà vu in mind. But the Hornets wouldn’t have it, rolling to a 5-0 win.
