Part of the Bryant junior varsity team went to Little Rock Catholic and another part went to Malvern Monday night. In Little Rock, the Hornets piled up a 34-0 lead by halftime on the way to a 34-7 win. In Malvern, the Leopards grabbed a 16-6 lead by intermission and held on for a 16-12 victory.
At Catholic, the Hornet defense held the Rockets to less than 100 yards of total offense and contributed to the scoring when Jake Hall scooped and scored from 35 yards out. Jacob Lowe also recovered a fumble late in the contest.
The offense contributed two touchdowns rushing and two in the air. The first score came on a screen pass to Najee Hunt from 10 yards out. After Hall’s touchdown, Cameron Coleman found the end zone on a 10-yard run.
Quarterback Beaux Bonvillain tossed a 30-yard touchdown pass to Austin Kelly then, later, scored on a quarterback sneak from the 1.
“The kids played hard and executed the offense perfectly the first half,” said Bryant coach Clint Shadwick. “The defense played tough at the line and rushed the quarterback all night.”
At Malvern, Seth Tucker, who ran for a second-half touchdown in Friday’s varsity victory over Little Rock McClellan, scored both of the team’s TD’s in Monday’s game.
“Our defense played very aggressively the second half to shut down Malvern,” noted Bryant coach Steve Griffith. “Clay Caffey, Ronnie Beard, Brendan Haynes and Dillon Blue led the charge.”
The Hornets’ next JV game is Monday, Sept. 22, at home against Hot Springs Lakeside.
