SPRINGDALE – Fayetteville quarterback Taylor Powell drew closer to tying former Purple'Dog Brandon Allen's state mark for touchdown passes in a career (98) Friday night. The Wake Forest commit threw for five scores and ran for another in a 56-7 win over Springdale. Powell, who needs just two touchdown passes to tie Allen, played only the first half, but finished with video game-like numbers: 19/23, 296 yards, 5 TD, INT. He scampered in from 10 yards out late in the first quarter to give Fayetteville a 28-0 lead. He, alongside receiver Barrett Banister, led the Purple'Dog offense. The two connected 10 times … Continue Reading ››

SPRINGDALE – For the first time in school history, Har-Ber was shutout at home. Friday, it was all Fayetteville at Wildcat Stadium in a 28-0 win. The Purple'Dogs defense turned Har-Ber into a one-dimensional football team then took away the pass as well. Safety Andrew Ellis recorded three takeaways himself with a pair of fumble recoveries and an interception. Ellis' first recovery gave Fayetteville a 7-0 lead after Payton Copher mishandled a high snap with Har-Ber backed up in its own end zone thanks to a 44-yard punt and two penalties. Fayetteville limited Har-Ber to just 109 yards rushing in the win … Continue Reading ››

The game we've been waiting for all season is finally here. For the second consecutive season, Springdale Har-Ber will host Fayetteville, the defending 7A state champions. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m. at Wildcat Stadium. The Purple'Dogs are under new leadership in coach Bill Blankenship, but the program hasn't seemed to miss a beat. The talent is evident, starting with quarterback and Wake Forest commit Taylor Powell and Under Armour All-American Akial Byers, who will soon play along the defensive line for Alabama's Nick Saban. Meanwhile, Har-Ber has controlled the 7A-West to this point. The Wildcats defense, led by defensive coordinator Keith … Continue Reading ››

Fayetteville Purple'Dogs must clean up mistakes with Wildcats up next

In recent weeks, Fayetteville (6-1, 3-1 7A-West) has reeled off strong performances on offense in wins against Bentonville West, Rogers High and Rogers Heritage.

Not only has quarterback Taylor Powell and his slew of receivers continued to make things difficult on opposing defenses, but the Bulldogs' rushing attack led by Terrance Rock has also picked up the pace.

Bentonville High Tigers know game's importance

MaxPreps thought enough of Friday's game between Bentonville and Springdale Har-Ber that it was listed as one of the top 10 games in the nation this week.

Tigers coach Jody Grant, however, already knew how important this game was to his team. The winner moves into sole possession of first place in the 7A-West Conference, and it could give Bentonville (4-1, 2-0) an inside track toward the league title.

"It's a big game as far as conference implications," Grant said. "We're excited about the opportunity to go down to Har-Ber and compete against a quality football team. "This is … Continue Reading ››

Many of Northwest Arkansas' cross country teams were scattered over a number of meets — and states — but many of them had good outings over the weekend.

• Rogers High's boys may have pulled off the biggest feat Saturday morning by winning the Crimson division of the Rim Rock Farm Classic in Lawrence, Kan. The Mounties compiled 108 points to 192 for second-place finisher Olathe (Kan.) South.

Senior Diego Contreras led Rogers with his seventh-place finish as he covered the 5-kilometer course in 16 minutes, 48.20 seconds, while David Salinas took 16th in 17:08.30.

Siloam Springs finished 36th in that division, while … Continue Reading ››

Bentonville High Tigers attempt to reach full strength

Bentonville was without three starters last week when the Tigers completed nonconference play with a 19-7 victory at Conway.

Senior tailback Jacob Clark, linebacker Jared Ritchie and defensive lineman Jack Patterson were on the sidelines last week with injuries, and Bentonville coach Jody Grant is hopeful his team will be in better health this week for its 7A-West Conference opener Friday at Fayetteville.

"Having those starters out affected us a little bit," Grant said. "But that's part of the game, and we just moved the next man up.

"It's the same situation this week. We're hoping to … Continue Reading ››

Bentonville High Tigers hit road for first time Bentonville has enjoyed its first games at Tiger Stadium this season, but now it's time for the Tigers to hit the road. The first of two road games take place Friday night when Bentonville travels to Conway for its first regular-season nonconference game against an in-state opponent since the 2011 season opener at North Little Rock. "The opportunity presented itself with Conway this year," coach Jody Grant said. "Conway has been a real good program and well coached, and I thought it would be a good matchup for us before going into conference play. "We're looking forward … Continue Reading ››
