One thing Bentonville wants to stress more these days is the need to score more points in the early stages of its games.

The Tigers (5-2, 4-0) had scored only three points during the first quarter of their first six games. That changed last week when Bentonville scored two touchdowns en route to its 49-21 win over Springdale High.

Nathan Lyons completed touchdown passes of 17 yards to Harrison Campbell and 64 yards to Kam'Ron Mays-Hunt in the first quarter. Lyons wound up career-high marks … Continue Reading ››

Quick rebound needed following first loss

Har-Ber coach Chris Wood will be the first to say it: turnovers can be a killer in the 7A-West.

Through the first five weeks of the season, the Wildcats had protected the ball perhaps better than any team around. Har-Ber had just four turnovers in those five games – three games with zero miscues – but Friday in Bentonville, the Tigers forced four turnovers, leading to its 24-21 upset of the state’s top-ranked team.

Though Har-Ber has just eight turnovers … Continue Reading ››

Screen Shot 2017-10-04 at 12.24.49 PMSpringdale Har-Ber Wildcats take 5-0 mark to Bentonville For the first time in school history, Har-Ber enters October at 5-0. The Wildcats grabbed their fifth win of the season to cap a successful September by scoring in all three phases at rival Springdale in a 56-14 win. Grant Allen accounted for 243 total yards and five touchdowns, Miller Herndon returned an interception 38 yards for a score, and Tevin Eckwood’s 85-yard kickoff return provided a jolt in Har-Ber’s 28-point second quarter. But perhaps more importantly, Har-Ber got its … Continue Reading ››

'Efficient'Screen Shot 2017-09-06 at 3.57.55 PM was the first word that came to mind for coach Chris Wood when recalling Allen’s 370-yard, six-touchdown effort.

Rogers High Coach Mike Loyd wasn't too concerned about the final score in last week's two-quarter scrimmage, but he's worked to correct several mistakes from the 7-3 loss at Russellville.

The Mounties started with six dropped passes in their first two offensive series and also gave up a pair of big plays on Russellville's final offensive series that lead to the only touchdown.

"We have a young football team and we'll get better," Loyd said. "A safety missed a call and didn't communicate. If they don't have their phones, they don't know how to communicate. It cost us even in a scrimmage.

"But we're … Continue Reading ››

Little went right for Springdale Har-Ber Friday, and Fayetteville continued surging as the state tournament approaches, knocking off the conference-leading Wildcats 71-53 to cap the next to last week of conference action.

Har-Ber still sits at 10-2 in league play and holds the tiebreaker over Bentonville. The Wildcats need two wins to claim the league's top seed in the playoffs … Continue Reading ››

Jeremy Price's young Springdale team dropped its fifth straight game Friday, falling to Van Buren, 47-34, behind Jordan West's game-high 18 points.

The Red'Dogs currently sit on the outside looking into the state tournament as the final week of the regular season begins. At 6-18 and 3-9 in league play, Springdale is still only a game behind Bentonville West in the standings with two games left, though. They'll need luck on their side to get in.

The Lady Red'Dogs had another setback at home Friday, losing to Jamilyn Kinney and Van Buren, 52-32. Springdale struggled mightily offensively, especially in the first quarter. … Continue Reading ››
