LOOKING BACK: HAR-BER 48, FS NORTHSIDE 7

SPRINGDALE — Six passes and three completions, all to Springdale Har-Ber defenders.

That was the miserable night Fort Smith Northside quarterback Max Frazier had throwing the ball against the Har-Ber defense. Har-Ber returned two of those interceptions for touchdowns and the Wildcats also recovered a fumble while blasting Northside 48-7 on homecoming night at Wildcat Stadium.

The rainy and cold weather greatly reduced the passing efficiency for both teams. Har-Ber quarterback Fuller Chandler completed two passes, including a 14-yard touchdown to Trey Smith to put the Wildcats ahead 41-7.

But the story on Friday was the Har-Ber defense, which held Northside out … Continue Reading ››
