The Malvern Lady Leopards kept their record perfect Tuesday night with a 53-27 drubbing of the Sylvan Hills Lady Bears from the 5A Classification.
Malvern was not tested much in this game, which was their first in a week because of bad weather (they were scheduled to play in a tournament at Mena last week but icy conditions forced its cancellation).
The Lady Leopards did what they do best, which is bombard Sylvan Hills with pressure defense and convert turnovers to points.
By the end of the first quarter, with Malvern leading 14-3, it was easy to see which way this game was going.
On Saturday, the Downtown Athletic Club will announce the winner of Heisman Memorial Trophy Award for the 79th time since its inception in 1935.
Considered one of, if not the most, prestigious individual awards in all of sports, the Heisman Trophy has become an event, stretching out the act of saying a name to an hour-long television show.
When things get warped to fit into that nice little televised viewing block with dozens of sponsorships, there is a bit of pressure to make sure the â€śrightâ€ť people are invited to New York for the presentation.
