After being rained out Monday, Glen Rose and Mayflower decided to give it another go Tuesday with the Beavers winning 3-0 and the Lady Beavers winning 15-1.
Both the boys and girls teams are undefeated in 3A Conference play,
Glen Rose was scheduled to be the visitor Monday, but accepted hosting duties Tuesday as a result of Mayflowerâ€™s field conditions.
Beavers head coach Chase Meyers said, â€śThat was the best game weâ€™ve played as a team,â€ť adding that sophomore Colin Hunter, who earned the save on the mound and made the play of the game at third base, â€śhad a great game all around.â€ť
Benton freshman Carmen King scored a goal off an assist from Mariah Temple at the 9:29 minute mark in the first half as the Benton Lady Panthers defeated Malvern 1-0 Monday night.
â€śShe is actually our leading scorer on the year,â€ť coach Jason Gentry said. â€śShe has five goals on the year and does a good job of finding the net. She controls the ball.
â€śSometimes she tries to do too much but when she just focuses on striking the ball, she does a good job. It helps that she has got some pretty good players around her too.â€ť
For the Benton Lady Panthers this season, two things were always constant: They battled every night and it was total team effort.
Not one player was dominant on the floor, but instead a different girl led the team in scoring or defense almost every night.
The rest of the 6A South took notice of the team effort as six Benton Lady Panthers were awarded all-conference honors for their performance during the 2010-11 season.
