Northwest Arkansas’ Playoff Picture

I consider the perfect time to get an early look at how the Arkansas high school football playoff picture is shaping comes after the eighth week has been completed. After spending most of Saturday morning pouring into the possibilities, one thing is for certain: there are still a lot of variables that could take place. Not all of them have the situation like Van Buren, where it's win one certain game or stay home. Since that is the case, I have limited everything to each team's best possible situation and its worst possible situation. Here is what I've come up with so far.  … Continue Reading ››

SPRINGDALE HAR-BER 38, FS SOUTHSIDE 0

Grabbing the No. 1 ranking in Class 7A didn’t add any pressure for Springdale Har-Ber.

Another Look: Bentonville 55, Rogers High 3

ROGERS — After a sluggish effort in a 28-3 victory over Springdale High the previous week, Bentonville coach Jody Grant was looking for a sharper offensive performance from the Tigers.

Bentonville did just that.

The Tigers seized the momentum with three impressive first-half scoring drives for a 21-3 halftime lead and they then used a pair of Rogers turnovers in the second half to pull away for a 55-3 win over the Mounties. Bentonville has won the last nine meetings between the two schools.

Bentonville quarterback Kasey Ford was 10 of 10 passing for 127 yards in the first half and the Tigers … Continue Reading ››

Northside 34, Springdale 17



SPRINGDALE — On a night when Gus Malzahn, Damian Williams and many more were on hand to recognize Springdale High’s 2005 state championship team, the Bulldogs gave themselves a chance to earn their biggest victory in years.

Then Fort Smith Northside’s Deontre Hardwick took over.

Hardwick scored on a 2-yard run as a power back, then had a vicious hit to force a fumble that was returned for a touchdown as Northside outscored Springdale 21-0 after intermission to turn a halftime deficit into a 34-17 road win.

The Grizzlies (4-4, 3-2 7A-West) finished with nine sacks, five of … Continue Reading ››
