Here’s a by-the-numbers look at the Lady Bulldogs.
694 — Assists this season for junior setter Maddie Mueller, a career-high. Mueller excelled as Springdale switched to a 5-1 scheme a year after she recorded a team-high 369 assists as a sophomore with the Lady Bulldogs running a 6-2.
422 — Kills for junior Desiree Mack, a career-high and team-high. Mack was again a force at the net, improving on the team-high 203 kills she had … Continue Reading ››
Here are a few notable performances and games from the eighth week of the Arkansas high school football season. Are we forgetting anyone? Let us know by commenting below or tweeting us at @arpreps.
Junction City defensive end/tight end Jamario Bell made seven tackles, including two for a loss, on defense and caught a 50-yard touchdown on offense in the Dragons' 60-6 win over Strong. He also had a 50-yard kickoff return.
Charleston quarterback Ty Storey completed 20 of 27 passes (74.1 percent) for 344 yards, four touchdowns and one interception. He also ran for another score.
BENTONVILLE — Austin Bugos admitted he might have raced downfield a little bit faster than expected, but the ball from Chase Hunter might have been a little under thrown, as well.
It didn’t matter. The two connected for a 76-yard touchdown pass on Bentonville’s first offensive play Friday night, and the Tigers went on to post a 49-0 victory over Rogers High during 7A-West Conference play at Tiger Stadium.
“The play worked really well, and it was good to be back at 100 percent,” said Bugos, who missed the first four weeks of the season with a leg injury. “It looked for … Continue Reading ››
FORT SMITH — The best half of Fuller Chandler’s Springdale High career kept the Bulldogs within striking distance of arguably the most-talented team in the 7A-West Conference on Friday.
But then Fort Smith Northside took over in the second half.
The Grizzlies forced four Springdale turnovers and scored the first 21 points after halftime to pull away for a 55-35 win on homecoming at Mayo-Thompson Stadium.
Chandler kept Springdale within 34-28 at halftime by accounting for 313 of his career-high 496 total yards and four of his five touchdowns in the opening half. He threw for 220 yards and two scores while running … Continue Reading ››
Quarterback Clay Tyler threw three touchdown passes and the Rebels made a goal-line stand in the first half to defeat Springdale Har-Ber 35-25 at Wildcat Stadium.
Two of Tyler's touchdown passes went to Andrew Barley, who also recovered a late on-side kick for the Rebels. Luke Hannon scored on a pair of 2-yard touchdown runs for the Wildcats, who lost their third consecutive game.
Southside improved to 6-2, 4-1 while Har-Ber dropped to 2-6, 2-3.
PEA RIDGE — After two emotional road victories over Gravette and Prairie Grove the last two weeks, Pea Ridge coach Tony Travis was worried the Blackhawks would suffer a Homecoming letdown against Berryville on Friday night.
It didn’t happen as Pea Ridge was clicking on all cylinders against the Bobcats.
Pea Ridge needed just four plays from scrimmage and a blocked punt return for a touchdown for a 21-0 lead 4 minutes, 44 seconds into the game and the Blackhawks never looked back in defeating Berryville 49-2 in a 4A-1 Conference game at Blackhawk Stadium.
ELKINS — Louie Crawford had a night to remember for West Fork.
The Tigers’ senior did a little bit of everything, in all facets of the football game. And West Fork needed him to, as Crawford’s big plays on offense, defense and special teams made a huge difference in a 28-18 win over rival Elkins at John Bunch Memorial Field.
Crawford caught two touchdown passes from 19 and 38 yards out from quarterback Colton Wise, part of his 9 reception, 155-yard total on the night. The senior also had two interceptions on defense to help stall two Elkins’ drives deep in West … Continue Reading ››
