Week 7 Springdale Football Notes

Springdale coach Shane Patrick.
Some pre-Bentonville game notes.

  • It doesn’t get any easier for Springdale this week. Bentonville is the middle game in a brutal three-game stretch against the 7A-West’s best teams, sandwiched between Fayetteville and Fort Smith Northside.

  • It especially doesn’t get any easier for the defense. Junior starting defensive end Logan Brown is moving to Florida and has turned in his gear. He finished with 11 tackles, including three solo and one tackle-for-loss, in six games. He’s the fourth defensive starter to leave the team since the … Continue Reading ››

Roundtable: Has Bentonville Turned The Corner?

Bentonville quarterback Kasey Ford.
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 ››

Fayetteville 49, Springdale 21

FAYETTEVILLE — Two plays into the 115th Battle of the Bulldogs, Fayetteville made things look easy against rival Springdale.
