BENTON — The Benton Panthers junior varsity rallied from an 18-7 deficit at halftime to defeat the Bryant Hornets sophomore JV team Monday night, 34-18.
To gain the lead, Bryant’s Brooks Ellis had an interception that he returned 80 yards for a touchdown.
“That really got the momentum in our favor,” said Hornets assistant Clint Shadwick.
Quarterback Reid Mobley added a touchdown on a scramble from 8 yards out then Jamel Johnson ran one in from the 12.
“We lost the momentum in the second half,” Shadwick said. “Benton came out the second half with a lot of energy and we couldn’t match it.”
The Bryant sophomore team plays again on Oct. 26 at Malvern.
