Lady Hornets impressive in non-conference matches


With her team competing in a league with all Class 6A schools, the Bryant Lady Hornets head soccer coach Julie Long tries to schedule non-conference contests against Class 7A schools when she can. The matches provide her team a chance to see what it might be facing in the 7A State tourney. The squad got two opportunities to do just that this week and came away with couple of impressive wins.

On Monday, the Lady Hornets forged a soggy victory over a tough Little Rock Central team, 4-0. On Tuesday, they pinned a 6-0 loss on the Mount St. Mary Belles, a team that tops the standings in the 7A/6A-Central Conference. Bryant remains unbeaten on the season at 13-0-2. They’re set to take on another 7A foe this Thursday at Cabot before returning to South Conference action against Sheridan on Tuesday, April 29.
