VAN BUREN — The Bryant Hornets soccer team bounced back from a disappointing first conference loss to Little Rock Central with a 1-0 win at Van Buren on Thursday night.

“We moved the ball as good or bettr than we have any other game this year,” stated Hornets coach Jason Hay. “We just need to keep improving as we move into next week’s games with Russellville and Conway.”
At 5-3 overall and 2-1 in the 7A-Central Conference, the Hornets will host Russellville on Tuesday and travel to Conway on Thursday.
“We played much better offensively,” Hay said. “We had a ton of shots on goal, which we did not get to chance to take last week. We had several hit the post or just unlucky things happened with some of them. But I was happy with the effort.”
