SPRINGDALE

Springdale controls its own destiny with two 7A-West games remaining.

Win twice and the Bulldogs (15-5, 9-3) will clinch at least a share of the conference title and the West’s No. 1 seed for the state tournament. Springdale closes the regular season by hosting Fort Smith Southside, which it beat 8-0 in the first half of conference play, then playing at Rogers, which it rallied to beat 2-1 in the teams’ first meeting.

Springdale enters the final week tied in the loss column with Bentonville, but … Continue Reading ››

The Bulldogs (14-4, 8-2) face the Tigers on Tuesday in a game that could wind up deciding the conference champion. Springdale beat Bentonville 5-0 at home in the teams’ first meeting thanks to five goals by senior Leo Araujo. A sprained ankle kept Araujo, who has a team-best 13 goals, out of a 3-0 … Continue Reading ››

The defending champion was down in the fall, but it’s not out yet.

Bentonville, who was unranked in the MaxPreps Cup standings when the fall sports were completed, vaulted itself to the No. 6 spot after the winter sports were finished and is within striking distance of winning that title a third consecutive year. The two-time defending MaxPreps Cup champion finished fall sports with state titles in girls tennis and girls cross country and a state runnerup in boys cross country.

Bentonville, fueled by its state championships in boys and girls swimming and its runnerup finishes in boys basketball and wrestling, has … Continue Reading ››

Screen Shot 2016-04-18 at 1.54.24 AM SPRINGDALE The 7A-West frontrunner’s first conference loss of the year came with its top goal-scorer sidelined with a sprained ankle. Now Springdale is hoping senior forward Leo Araujo makes his return Tuesday at Har-Ber. The Bulldogs (13-3, 7-1) could’ve used his explosiveness in a 3-0 home loss to Heritage on Friday. Araujo has scored a team-best 12 goals this year, including five against Bentonville, three against Southside and the only goal in the Northside win. “We got good news from the doctor and he’s doing well, so … Continue Reading ››

SPRINGDALE

Leo Araujo entered 7A-West play with two goals scored this season. Since, he’s scored 10 in six games.

The senior forward has provided a spark for the first-place Bulldogs (12-2, 6-0), which have won seven straight and are a win Tuesday against Rogers away from a perfect first half of conference play and what would be at least a two-game lead heading into the second half.

Araujo’s latest big game was a hat trick in Friday’s 8-0 win at Fort Smith Southside. But he wasn’t alone. … Continue Reading ››

SPRINGDALE

Junior David Portilla scored goals in each of Springdale’s first three conference wins. Then senior Leo Araujo erupted for five goals in an impressive 5-0 victory over Bentonville on Friday.

The offense has come from different places, but a stingy defense has been a constant — Springdale has outscored opponents 14-2 in a 4-0 start to 7A-West play that has earned it sole possession of first in the conference.

Bentonville threatened numerous times on Friday, but Springdale (10-2, 4-0) found ways to keep the Tigers off … Continue Reading ››
