The Bryant Hornets junior varsity defense forced three turnovers but struggles in the[more] red zone by the offense proved decisive as Little Rock Central prevailed 29-21 at Bryant Stadium on Monday night.
“The defense played big,” said Hornets coach Jason Hay.
Bryce Denker returned one of the interceptions for a touchdown and Davis Nossaman also had a pick. James Gibson recovered a fumble.
Devonte Howard ran for a touchdown and Wesley Akers completed a TD pass to Greyson Giles. Josh Lowery converted all three of his extra-point attempts.
Defensively, Nossaman, Jacob Stringer, Stoney Stevens and Jake Johnson made tackles for losses while Colton Caviness and Daniel Richards each had a sack.
