â€śI donâ€™t think there was a game played yesterday in the state,â€ť Benton head coach Eric Ryan said Thursday morning after Wednesdayâ€™s storms postponed the scheduled game between Lake Hamilton and the Lady Panthers.
Benton (18-5, 9-1 6A South) will play at Texarkana Friday at 5 p.m. The game against Lake Hamilton has been moved to Thursday, May 5. Ryan said they considered moving the game to today, but with more bad weather expected to hit this afternoon Ryan didnâ€™t want to risk it.
Ryan said Texarkana has really improved throughout the year and are a â€śscrappy bunch.â€ť

The Bryant varsity boys soccer team finally had it.
On Monday night at Bryant stadium the boys finally were on the receiving end of a one-goal win against Little Rock Central. Bryant had suffered a one-goal loss in Little Rock to start the 7A Conference schedule.
Controversy ensued even before the ball was placed in play. Central forgot to bring their away jerseys so they had to wear white, forcing the Hornets back into the locker room to change into their blue jerseys.
