You know how some games are closer than the final score indicates? Well, just the opposite was true of Monday’s game between the Bryant Lady Hornets freshman team and the Conway White Wampus Kittens.
The Lady Hornets improved to 11-0 on the season with a 36-19 win that included an opening run of 20-1 by the starters.
Everyone played and contributed to holding Conway to just five field goals in the game, four of them by Summer Roachell who scored 14 of her team’s points.
McKenzie Adams led Bryant with 12 points, Kiara Moore had 10, Courtney Davidson 5, Hayley Murphy 4, McKenzie Rice 3 and Whitney Meyer 2.
The game was the last before Christmas for the Lady Hornets who return to competition on Wednesday, Dec. 30, against Malvern in the Kameron Hale Invitational Tournament at Lake Hamilton. Their next game in the South Division of the Central Arkansas Junior High Conference will be against North Little Rock on Jan. 4, in a battle between two of the three teams atop the league. (Cabot South is the third, and the Lady Hornets face them on Jan. 7.)
