CABOT — Ivory Russ struck for 21 points to lead the Bryant White Lady Hornets eighth grade team of Bryant Middle School to a 41-25 win over the Cabot North Lady Panthers eighth grade team on Thursday.
The win kept the Lady Hornets unbeaten through 12 games this season going into their home contest against North Little Rock on Thursday, Jan. 21.
Tiyanna Robinson scored 7 points in the victory. Celena Martin added 6, Tierra Trotter 5 and Kinley Oholendt 2.
“This was another hard-fought win on the road,” said Lady Hornets coach Kenny Hays. “We started to pull away late in the third quarter. And then we finally had enough patience in the fourth quarter to make them come out of their zone and try to match up with us, which gave us some easier scoring opportunities down the stretch.
“I thought that we did a great job with our half-court defense in the second half of the game,” he noted.
