Rogers High Midweek Report

The injury bug has hit the Mounties (1-5, 1-2 7A-West) hard as they prepare for Friday's game at Fort Smith Northside.

Fort Smith Northside 29, Rogers Heritage 3 — a look back

ROGERS — Rogers Heritage football coach Perry Escalante appeared just as frustrated as his War Eagles' offense following Friday night's 29-3 loss to Fort Smith Northside.

"We couldn't get anything going," Escalante said. "We turned it over. I have now answer for why we continue to do that and our defense played so good. They had some big, big stops." The Heritage defense stopped Northside at the goal-line once and also forced … Continue Reading ››

BENTONVILLE — Football players learn what to do in special teams situations during practice, but they might forget those things in actual games — especially when it's a rare instance.

Copher, who had the ball at the goal line following a lateral by Blaze Brothers, hesitated for a moment. He then took off and ran the length of the field to give the Wildcats (5-1, … Continue Reading ››
