After opening the seasons with big losses to Springdale Har-Ber and Greenwood, the Southside Mavericks have bounced back in a big way with consecutive wins, including a 23-20 7A-Central opener against Conway Friday night. The Mavericks (2-2, 1-0) used a late third quarter touchdown to take the lead and the defense did the rest, never allowing the Wampus Cats to cross midfield in the final quarter to get the win. Brandon Ulrich, who has played sparingly this season, led the way with the game-winning 20-yard touchdown run with 54 seconds left in the third quarter. Ulrich led Mavericks in receptions with 4 … Continue Reading ››

SPRINGDALE – Kyler Williams' 10 catches for 265 yards and three touchdowns led Springdale to a 42-21 win over Rogers Heritage Friday to open 7A-West play. Bulldog quarterback Layne Hutchins – 12/19, 321 yards, 4 TD – found Williams twice in the first half and once again from 68 yards out to seal win No. 3 for Springdale and drop Heritage to 0-4. Springdale's defense forced four turnovers in the win as well, and has been a big factor in the Bulldogs surpassing last season's win total through just four weeks. Jayden Minchew and Stone Ben each picked off Heritage's Trey Kitterman … Continue Reading ››

For the 11th year in a row, the Bentonville Tigers come out on top in the regular season showdown with rival Fayetteville. The Tigers (3-1, 1-0 7A-West) were solid all night on defense, particularly in slowing down Fayetteville's high-power passing attack. Powell ended the night 18 of 33 for 186 yards and 3 TDs, but was sacked four times and had trouble finding open receivers against Bentonville's talented secondary. Jacob Clark rushed for 100 yards and 1 TD and Hayden Moehring kicked a crucial 46 yard FG with 3:14 left to extend Bentonville's lead to 24-14. Fayetteville got a Powell to Terrance Rock … Continue Reading ››

BENTONVILLE — Bentonville West picked the right time to earn its first-ever victory with a 42-14 pounding of Van Buren in the 7A-West Conference opener for both teams Friday night at Tiger Stadium.

The Wolverines (1-3, 1-0) ran off 28 unanswered points after the Pointers (1-3, 0-1) used a 70-yard touchdown pass from Caleb Salisbury to Walter Green in their first play of the second half to tie the game at 14. Kobe Anderson broke the deadlock with a 7-yard touchdown run — West's first score on the ground — with 7 minutes, 52 seconds left in the third quarter, … Continue Reading ››
