Four questions for four writers talking 7A-West football heading into the first week of conference play.

1. How many of the 7A-West’s winless teams (Bentonville, Springdale, Har-Ber) pick up their first victory this week?

Jimmy Carter (Springdale beat writer)It wouldn’t be a surprise if all three teams win Friday. Southside always gets up to face Barry Lunney’s Bentonville teams, but it would be a shocker if the Tigers faltered again. This is the first time both Springdale teams have started 0-3 … Continue Reading ››

MUSKOGEE, Okla. — Fayetteville turned to the old bag of tricks at just the right time Friday night.

With the offense sputtering for much of the first half, the Bulldogs had a chance to build some breathing room just before intermission. And thanks to two plays of trickery, that’s just what Fayetteville did en route to a 24-10 win against Muskogee (Okla.) at The Indian Bowl.

Fayetteville tight end C.J. O'Grady.

Four questions for four writers talking 7A-West football entering the third week of the season.

1. Finish this sentence: Bentonville's 0-2 start is              ?

Jimmy Carter (Springdale beat writer)Not necessarily a big deal. The defending 7A state champs have struggled out of the gate, but it’s not like it’s against in-state competition. Union (scrimmage), Kansas City Rockhurst and Broken Arrow are likely all better than any Arkansas team. The slow start does … Continue Reading ››
