Benton Survives Herrin Comeback


By WSIL Sports

HERRIN-- Benton built an 18-0 lead in the first half before Herrin got on the board in the second to cut it to 18-7 at the break. While the Tigers never led, they nearly completed a furious second-half rally.

Twice Herrin got within three and eventually tied it on a two-point conversion with about five minutes to go in the fourth. Benton's Dakota Cali led the Rangers with three rushing touchdowns, including the game-winner with just minutes to go, sealing the 36-30 win.

Benton improves to 4-0, while Herrin falls to 1-3.
