Football:

Last Friday, the Bryant Hornets football team soundly defeated Siloam Springs 33-14 to improve to an 8-1 record on the season. The Hornets often had to settle for field goals as kicker Hayden Ray made four field goals in the game, three of which came in the first half. The Hornet’s offensive attack was steady, however, as Deamonte Terry rushed 24 times for 132 yards and starting quarterback Gunnar Burks was 11 for 15 with 106 yards and a touchdown pass. The biggest play for the Hornets came in the fourth quarter where Chace Henson ran a sweep play for an 89-yard touchdown. Bryant’s defense was a brick wall, allowing just 42 yards in the first half. The Hornets look to clinch a top seed in the 7A playoffs tonight as they travel to take on Conway.
