Benton falls to last minute score
By TAYLOR MITCHELL
On opening night of the high school football season, and the heat of the sun lingering throughout the night, the Raiders of Benton Academy flashed the potential for greatness against Carroll Academy (AA). However, those flashes were overshadowed by penalties, injuries and turnovers as the Rebels left Benton with a 29-22 victory following a last-minute touchdown run by Hayden Harrell.
Harrell’s 12-yard game-winning run along the right side of the field capped off a 13-play drive that lasted nearly seven minutes.
