NORTH LITTLE ROCK — Destin Jenkins hit two 3’s and James Billingsley hit another as the Bryant Blue Hornets eighth-grade team of Bethel Middle School stayed with the North Little Rock Blue Charging Wildcats eighth-graders for a quarter.
The Hornets struggled the rest of the way and, after a 21-4 second quarter, North Little Rock Blue cruised to a 65-22 win on Monday night.
“Their steady pressure took its toll,” said Hornets coach Steve Wilson.
It was 15-11 after that first quarter but 36-15 by halftime and 55-19 going into the fourth quarter.
Jenkins finished with 6 points. Aiden Baker added 4. Andrew Briner and Billingsley each had 3 with Jackson Fluger, Carson Nagle and Jackson Verdell adding 2 apiece.
The Hornets close out their season on Thursday at North Little Rock Gold.
