The Bryant Hornets just couldn’t get a shot into the net Tuesday night but, for the longest time, they didn’t allow one either. But the Conway Wampus Cats scored on a tough shot and made it stand up for a 1-0 win at Bryant Stadium.

The loss was the second in as many matches against 7A rivals in the 7A/6A-Central Conference for the Hornets. They’re not 4-6-1 this season and 1-2 overall in the league. They return to play a 7A contest in the conference at Van Buren on Tuesday, April 14.

“I was proud of the effort we gave,” said Hornets coach Jason Hay. “We had a couple of guys hurt but players stepped up. We had our chances and could not get one in. But our play was much improved over last week.”

The Hornets attempted 13 shots.

“The defense played well after they settled in,” said Bryant assistant Clint Shadwick. “Krishna Gurung had three good shots but was not able to score. (Goalkeeper) Hayden Ray had 11 saves in the game.”
