Panthers pick up first win

December 13, 2013

Scoring has been at a premium for the Magnet Cove Panthers this season, but on Tuesday, they scored 33 percent more than their season average in defeating conference foe Abundant Life 40-32 at home.
The Panthers led 12-10 after the opening stanza and after a rather low-scoring second quarter, Magnet Cove went into the halftime break with an 18-14 lead.
The two teams played to an 8-8 stalemate in the third quarter, leaving the Panthers with a four-point lead at 26-22 heading into the final eight minutes of the game.

Hot Spring Count Sportlight: Elizabeth Kratz

December 13, 2013

The Poyen Lady Indians basketball team lost a lot of their scoring from last year’s state tournament team, but to watch them play this year you wouldn’t know it.
The team has been picking up wins at a regularity that fans in Poyen have gotten used to and a lot of the credit falls to senior point guard Elizabeth Kratz.
When the 2013-2014 season started, Kratz was looked upon to be the leader of the team and it was a role that she tackled head-on.

Don't underestimate fan importance

December 13, 2013

Over the last couple of weeks I have attended a great many sporting events.
While each community and student body is passionate about their school’s teams, the manner in which they support those teams differs drastically.
Take Wednesday night’s tournament game at Magnet Cove High School, for example.
It was a great game that came right down to the wire against a team that the Lady Panthers just have a hard time beating (Spring Hill).
There have been few times I have seen a crowd be into a game as much as the Magnet Cove faithful were that night.

Last Thursday, the Glen Rose Beavers and Lady Beavers hosted Abundant Life, with both of the local teams coming away with big wins.
The Lady Beavers breezed their way through the Lady Owls by the score of 53-15.
Head coach Chris Smith said the team struggled in the beginning of the game on both sides of the ball.
“But after that we started to show some life,” Smith said.
Glen Rose led 15-6 after one quarter and pushed that lead to 29-8 at the half.

Lady Panthers finish second in tournament

December 12, 2013

The Magnet Cove Lady Panthers were just a few seconds away from doing something they couldn’t do last season — defeat Spring Hill.
The 2012-2013 Magnet Cove senior girls squad put together a months-long winning streak last season book-ended by losses to Spring Hill.
The Lady Panthers lost to Spring Hill twice in December last year and did not lose again until they faced the Lady Bears in the 2A state tournament.
In the championship game of the Summit Bank Shootout Wednesday night, the Lady Panthers had a chance to change that, but came up a couple of seconds short in a 49-48 loss.

This week's coach and games of the week

December 12, 2013

Last week’s winter weather caused all sorts of havoc with athletics (and just about everything else) in the state of Arkansas.
The high school playoffs were postponed for a week, which if you are a football fan is good news because the season will last another week.
Because the playoffs were delayed, this week there are two Games of the Week.
The first has been touched on already, and that is Friday night’s Class 3A semifinal playoff game between the Glen Rose Beavers and the Smackover Buckaroos.

On Tuesday, Oct. 28, the Williams Baptist College Eagles played the North Arkansas College Pioneers...
