The Forrest City Junior Mustangs earned their 10th victory of the season Wednesday night in a make-up game played at Mustang Arena.
Forrest City and Paragould stayed on their conference collision course Tuesday by notching 5A-East victories.

An ugly win is always better than a pretty loss. That’s what the P-W Patriots got Tuesday at Hazen.
Palestine-Wheatley travels to Hazen tonight for a 6AA Conference tripleheader and will play at home Thursday and Friday.
The last time Batesville had a winning boys basketball record was during the 2004-05 season when they finished 16-11 overall and 7-7 in the conference, which netted them the fourth seed into the state tournament.
Friday’s wintry mix of weather that moved through Arkansas cancelled all of the local high school basketball games that were scheduled to be played.
