Northside (6-1, 3-1 7A-West) also scored 21 points off three of the Mounties five lost fumbles. The game was tied at 21-21 late in the first half but the Grizzlies reeled off 28 unanswered points to pull away.

“Their quarterback is good, and that was no secret or no surprise,” said Rogers coach … Continue Reading ››

Four questions for four writers talking 7A-West football heading into week five.

1. True or false: Bentonville has turned a corner the last two weeks with wins over Fort Smith Northside and Springdale Har-Ber.

Jimmy Carter (Springdale beat writer) True. The Tiger offense has been much more efficient in recent weeks, a trend that should only continue as they roll through the easy portion of their schedule. The Fayetteville game looms large.

Paul Nielsen (Rogers beat writer)No question, yes. After … Continue Reading ››

ROGERS — Rogers High let another 7A-West Conference game slip away Friday night.

“We came out and made the plays in the second half to win the game,” … Continue Reading ››

Four writers rank the top half of the 7A-West midway through the season.

Jimmy Carter (Springdale beat writer):

1. Fayetteville: The Bulldogs may very well be the most talented team in the league. Big-time playmakers on both sides of the ball should pay dividends against top competition down the stretch and in the playoffs.

2. Bentonville: The Tigers’ win over Fort Smith Northside could signify a turning point in their season. The running game finally stepped up and took some pressure off Kasey Ford. … Continue Reading ››

1. Finish this sentence: Springdale Har-Ber's 42-7 blowout win at Rogers High was                    ?

Jimmy Carter (Springdale beat writer) Not too shocking. Let me break it down. Har-Ber beat Owasso, Okla., 21-14 at a preseason scrimmage over in Tulsa. Granted, it was a scrimmage, but Owasso is one of … Continue Reading ››

ROGERS — Trey Smith started at quarterback for Springdale Har-Ber and he also caught three passes in the first half for the Wildcats. But Smith’s biggest contribution Friday night may have come off his foot.

In a scoreless game, the sophomore booted a punt 59 yards to the Rogers High one midway through the second quarter. The Wildcats then forced a three-and-out and they used the swing in field position and the momentum to score two touchdowns in a four-minute span before halftime to start a 42-7 victory over the Mounties in the 7A-West Conference opener at Whitey Smith Stadium.

Who will take the first snap under center for Rogers High on Friday night will most likely be a game time decision, Rogers coach Shawn Flannigan said. The Mounties host Springdale Har-Ber in the 7A-West Conference opener.

Starting quarterback Cole Evans suffered bruised ribs in last week’s loss to Jefferson City, Mo., but the senior has been practicing this week. Junior Joseph Sultemeier replaced Evans last week and has been getting extra reps at quarterback this week. Sultemeier also starts at receiver for the Mounties.

Sophomore Grayson Lee, who was Evans’ backup at the start of the season, is still sidelined after … Continue Reading ››

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 ››

ROGERS — The new cast in the Rogers High triple option offense got off to a slow start Friday night against Siloam Springs.

Rogers, which has 11 new starters on offense, failed to get a first down on its first possession after watching the Panthers offense use just two plays for a 7-0 lead on the game’s opening possession.

But then Mounties fullback Bryan Grigsby kicked the offense into gear with a record setting performance. Grigsby rushed 32 times for 446 yards and the senior scored all five of the Mounties touchdowns in a 35-21 victory over Siloam Springs in the season … Continue Reading ››
