Layton Baugh, Cairon Allen and L.C. Pitts each scored 8 points to lead the Bryant Blue Hornets seventh-grade team to a 41-29 win over the Benton Maroon Panthers seventh-grade team on Monday night.
In a seventh-grade B game, the Hornets earned an 18-16 victory.
“We played two 20-minute halves with a running clock,” noted Hornets coach Steve Wilson regarding the A game. “We got out to a comfortable lead, but they closed back to 6 halfway through the second half. Our press hurt them some and we put it back in late to get a bigger lead.”
Bethel led 16-8 at halftime.
Cason Trickey scored 5 points as did Gideon Motes. Tyler McCormick added 4 and Andrew Karp scored 3.
In the B game, Logan Geissler hit two 3’s on the way to a team-high 8 points. Karp added 4 as Randy Offutt, Alex Horton and Devyn Steingisser scored 2 apiece.
The Bethel seventh- and eighth-grade teams are set to host Sheridan tonight in their final outing before the holidays.
