Pea Ridge 49, Berryville 2

PEA RIDGE — After two emotional road victories over Gravette and Prairie Grove the last two weeks, Pea Ridge coach Tony Travis was worried the Blackhawks would suffer a Homecoming letdown against Berryville on Friday night.

It didn’t happen as Pea Ridge was clicking on all cylinders against the Bobcats.

Pea Ridge needed just four plays from scrimmage and a blocked punt return for a touchdown for a 21-0 lead 4 minutes, 44 seconds into the game and the Blackhawks never looked back in defeating Berryville 49-2 in a 4A-1 Conference game at Blackhawk Stadium.

Pea Ridge (8-0, 5-0 4A-1) had 345 yards … Continue Reading ››

West Fork 28, Elkins 18

ELKINS — Louie Crawford had a night to remember for West Fork.

The Tigers’ senior did a little bit of everything, in all facets of the football game. And West Fork needed him to, as Crawford’s big plays on offense, defense and special teams made a huge difference in a 28-18 win over rival Elkins at John Bunch Memorial Field.

Crawford caught two touchdown passes from 19 and 38 yards out from quarterback Colton Wise, part of his 9 reception, 155-yard total on the night. The senior also had two interceptions on defense to help stall two Elkins’ drives deep in West … Continue Reading ››

Week 8 Springdale Football Notes

AN FBH-SDALE PRACTICE
Springdale coach Shane Patrick.
Some pre-Northside game notes.

  • Week three of Springdale’s brutal three-week stretch against the 7A-West’s best features a matchup at Fort Smith Northside (6-1, 3-1). The Grizzlies may very well be the best team in the conference. They beat Fayetteville in a thriller and lost a close one at Bentonville despite making quite a few errors.


  • Northside’s defense is its strength. It features Arkansas defensive end commit Daytrieon Dean (6-3, 260) and physical linebacker Deontre Hardwick (6-1, 230). Saw a highlight of Hardwick where the other … Continue Reading ››

Four questions for four writers talking 7A-West football heading into the first week of conference play.

1. True or false: Fayetteville sophomore Taylor Powell is already one of the elite quarterbacks in the 7A-West?

Jimmy Carter (Springdale beat writer)True. He may be close to claiming the No. 1 spot by the end of the season and there’s a good chance he’ll be the league’s best next year. Look at what past Division I quarterbacks did or didn’t do as … Continue Reading ››
