RAPID REPORT — Bentonville 24, Fayetteville 21

For the 11th year in a row, the Bentonville Tigers come out on top in the regular season showdown with rival Fayetteville.

NWA Football Report – Week 4

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.

"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 ››

Prep Report Class 5A and Below — Week 4

week-3-statistics Greenland Pirates Greenland suffered its first defeat, losing by a touchdown (19-12) at Gentry.

They then lost tailback Michael McAdoo to an injury, and the senior is not expected to play this week against Clinton at home. “We don't have much … Continue Reading ››
