Clutch 90-yard drive spurs Junior Wolves past Bryant freshmen
PEARCY — You have to give the Lake Hamilton Wolves freshman team its due. After the Bryant Hornets freshmen had rallied from a 22-7 deficit to forge a tie going into the fourth quarter, they put together a 90-yard scoring march in the fourth quarter.
Then, with the Hornets threatening to answer that drive with one of their own, the Junior Wolves got a stop after Bryant had made it to their 42. Phillip Isom-Green grabbed a swing pass from Beaux Bonvillain on a fourth-down play, needing 6 yards to keep the drive alive but the Wolves’ safety/quarterback Andrew Bennett made a shoestring tackle short of the first down.
Lake Hamilton held on for a 28-22 victory in a physical, hard-nosed battle between Central Arkansas Junior High Conference rivals.
