Bentonville 49, Rogers High 0

BENTONVILLE — Austin Bugos admitted he might have raced downfield a little bit faster than expected, but the ball from Chase Hunter might have been a little under thrown, as well.

It didn’t matter. The two connected for a 76-yard touchdown pass on Bentonville’s first offensive play Friday night, and the Tigers went on to post a 49-0 victory over Rogers High during 7A-West Conference play at Tiger Stadium.

“The play worked really well, and it was good to be back at 100 percent,” said Bugos, who missed the first four weeks of the season with a leg injury. “It looked for … Continue Reading ››

Fort Smith Northside 55, Springdale 35

FORT SMITH — The best half of Fuller Chandler’s Springdale High career kept the Bulldogs within striking distance of arguably the most-talented team in the 7A-West Conference on Friday.

But then Fort Smith Northside took over in the second half.

The Grizzlies forced four Springdale turnovers and scored the first 21 points after halftime to pull away for a 55-35 win on homecoming at Mayo-Thompson Stadium.

Chandler kept Springdale within 34-28 at halftime by accounting for 313 of his career-high 496 total yards and four of his five touchdowns in the opening half. He threw for 220 yards and two scores while running … Continue Reading ››

Fayetteville 51, Rogers Heritage 16

ROGERS — Fayetteville moved the ball through the air and on the ground with regularity to roll over Rogers Heritage 51-16 in 7A-West Conference football on Friday night in Gates Stadium.

The Purple Bulldogs (7-1, 4-1 7A-West) got a strong effort from sophomore quarterback Taylor Powell, completing 15 of 22 passes for 230 yards and a touchdown.

Sophomore running back Terrance Powell also keyed a potent running attack with 149 yards on only nine carries, including a 79-yard touchdown run

Fayetteville coach Daryl Patton said cashing in on a Heritage turnover on the first possession was key.

“Getting the … Continue Reading ››

Fort Smith Southside 35, Springdale Har-Ber 25

Quarterback Clay Tyler threw three touchdown passes and the Rebels made a goal-line stand in the first half to defeat Springdale Har-Ber 35-25 at Wildcat Stadium.

Two of Tyler's touchdown passes went to Andrew Barley, who also recovered a late on-side kick for the Rebels. Luke Hannon scored on a pair of 2-yard touchdown runs for the Wildcats, who lost their third consecutive game.

Southside improved to 6-2, 4-1 while Har-Ber dropped to 2-6, 2-3.

Pea Ridge 49, Berryville 2

PEA RIDGE — After two emotional road victories over Gravette and Prairie Grove the last two weeks, Pea Ridge coach Tony Travis was worried the Blackhawks would suffer a Homecoming letdown against Berryville on Friday night.

It didn’t happen as Pea Ridge was clicking on all cylinders against the Bobcats.

Pea Ridge needed just four plays from scrimmage and a blocked punt return for a touchdown for a 21-0 lead 4 minutes, 44 seconds into the game and the Blackhawks never looked back in defeating Berryville 49-2 in a 4A-1 Conference game at Blackhawk Stadium.

Pea Ridge (8-0, 5-0 4A-1) had 345 yards … Continue Reading ››

West Fork 28, Elkins 18

ELKINS — Louie Crawford had a night to remember for West Fork.

The Tigers’ senior did a little bit of everything, in all facets of the football game. And West Fork needed him to, as Crawford’s big plays on offense, defense and special teams made a huge difference in a 28-18 win over rival Elkins at John Bunch Memorial Field.

Crawford caught two touchdown passes from 19 and 38 yards out from quarterback Colton Wise, part of his 9 reception, 155-yard total on the night. The senior also had two interceptions on defense to help stall two Elkins’ drives deep in West … Continue Reading ››
