One of the best shooting teams in the 7A-West couldn’t knock down a 3-pointer to save its life. Or the opening game of the second half of conference play.

Springdale made just 2 of 22 3-pointers in a rare cold shooting performance, one the Bulldogs couldn’t overcome in … Continue Reading ››

SPRINGDALE HAR-BER RECAP

Springdale had one goal before playing consecutive road games at Rogers Heritage and Rogers High. “We needed to get to .500 to start the second half,” Har-Ber coach Sandy Wright said. Mission accomplished. Har-Ber (14-8, 4-4) is now even in the 7A-West Conference following consecutive wins over Heritage and Rogers. Jacie Higgins scored eight of her 12 points in the fourth quarter Friday to lead Har-Ber to a 52-41 victory over the Lady Mounties. Higgins made the clutch plays after sitting out most of the third quarter because of foul trouble. The consecutive wins set up nicely for Har-Ber, which will play home games … Continue Reading ››

Rogers Heritage recap

The time off earlier this week because of Tuesday's open date didn't bother the War Eagles a bit on Friday.

Heritage (11-10, 3-5 7A-West Conference) outscored Springdale in every quarter and held the Red Bulldogs to less than 30 points total en route to a 43-28 victory on the road.

The War Eagles won their second consecutive game and have now won three of their last five to push their way back into the state tournament picture, after an 0-3 start.

The Lady War Eagles (6-15, 1-7) didn't have as much success as Springdale outscored Heritage 20-5 in the second quarter to take … Continue Reading ››
