BENTON — The Bryant Blue Hornets seventh-grade team of Bethel Middle School improved to 2-0 on the season with a 30-8 romp over the Benton Panthers seventh-grade team on Monday night.
The first-team offense and defense for Bethel played through the first series of the second half then reserves completed the game.
“We were able to get everyone some playing time,” said Hornets coach Josh Akers. “We played good defense and executed our offense very well.”
Cason Trickey, Gideon Motes and Dylan Witcher each scored for the Hornets. Alex Horton had an interception on defense.
“I thought that our offensive line played well,” Akers said. “Jonathan Mendez, Brendon Bates, Rafe Wallace, Nick Hoffman and Evan McCrary are the offensive linemen.”
The Hornets return to action on Monday, Sept. 17, when they host North Little Rock.
