By DAN HAWTHORNE
Good things in life are free; from the charity stripe anyway.
Benton Academy’s Lady Raiders held off a 13 point onslaught in the fourth quarter and made crucial free-throws in the dying second to earn their first win on the season, 33-28 over University Christian.
The victory snapped a seven game losing skid for the reining North Half champions.
The Raiders dropped the nightcap 61-27 to the Flames; it was their second straight loss.
