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.
The conference season was completed tonight and the seeds are now set for the Class 7A State Volleyball Tournament next week at Springdale High School.
7A-Central seeds - Conway 1, North Little Rock 2, FS Southside 3, FS Northside 4, LR Mount St. Mary 5, Cabot 6.
7A-West seeds - Fayetteville 1, Springdale Har-Ber 2, Bentonville 3, Rogers 4, Van Buren 5, Bentonville West 5.
Fayetteville’s Terrance Rock is the ARPreps.com Athlete of the Week rushing for a career-high 195 yards and two touchdowns on just 13 carries. He also added a 40-yard touchdown reception in the Bulldogs’ 48-17 win over Rogers Heritage on Friday.

Tuesday is the last conference date for both the 7A-West and 7A-Central.
Only one playoff berth is left to be clinched, though there are several places where seeding is still not decided.
All will be decided, though, after Tuesday's games.
Other than returning to the win column, perhaps the biggest positive takeaway from Shiloh Christian's 36-7 blowout against Gentry was a glimpse of the future.
Thanks to 36-0 lead late in the first half, Saints coach Jeff Conaway was able to insert underclassman for the final two-plus quarters, meaning reserves were on the field more than the starters during Friday's homecoming game.
Sure, seniors Connor Reece and Broc Berus filled up the box score in limited action, but several less familiar players made their way to the top of many statistical categories.
Back-up quarterback Jackson Gower took the most varsity snaps of his … Continue Reading ››
In a battle of unbeatens, Prairie Grove dominated Pea Ridge on Friday in Tiger Stadium in front of a large homecoming crowd.
The Tigers (7-0, 4-0 4A-1) jumped out to a 14-0 lead, turning a Pea Ridge interception and special teams mistake into a pair of first quarter scores.

It was all Prairie Grove after that, specifically Isaac Disney.
Disney, a senior who is … Continue Reading ››
