Roundtable: Who Wins The 7A-West?

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

1. How many of the 7A-West’s winless teams (Bentonville, Springdale, Har-Ber) pick up their first victory this week?

Jimmy Carter (Springdale beat writer)It wouldn’t be a surprise if all three teams win Friday. Southside always gets up to face Barry Lunney’s Bentonville teams, but it would be a shocker if the Tigers faltered again. This is the first time both Springdale teams have started 0-3 … Continue Reading ››

Bentonville Boys Must Adjust Basketball Schedule

High school basketball season is less than two months away, and Bentonville's boys coach Jason McMahan is still adjusting his team's schedule.

Moving games around is nothing new to basketball coaches, particularly when winter weather causes its share of problems, but this isn't a weather-related change.

McMahan announced earlier Monday that the Tigers have been invited to play in the 42nd annual Culligan City of Palms Classic, which will be played Dec. 18-23 in Fort Myers, Fla.

"It was just something we couldn't pass up," McMahan said Monday afternoon. "We will be going against some of the big schools that you hear about … Continue Reading ››

4A-1 Race Should Be A Doozy

FILE PHOTO -- Cedric Duarte of Gravette has exploded out of the gate with more than 600 yards rushing and 8 TDs for the Lions.
The preliminaries are over. It's time to get down to the serious business at hand as conference play begins this week across the state.

The 4A-1 Conference race promises to be a dogfight from start to finish with no clear cut favorite, but plenty of worthy teams that should be in the race for the league title all the way to the … Continue Reading ››

Fayetteville 24, Muskogee (Okla.) 10

MUSKOGEE, Okla. — Fayetteville turned to the old bag of tricks at just the right time Friday night.

With the offense sputtering for much of the first half, the Bulldogs had a chance to build some breathing room just before intermission. And thanks to two plays of trickery, that’s just what Fayetteville did en route to a 24-10 win against Muskogee (Okla.) at The Indian Bowl.

Senior Dre Greenlaw got the Fayetteville drive going just before half, taking a reverse handoff and tossing a 42-yard, wide-receiver to wide receiver pass to Bruce Armstrong to set the Bulldogs up at the Muskogee 22. … Continue Reading ››

  • Greenland 24, Gentry 15

    GENTRY — Greenland saved its best for last Friday night.

    The Pirates erased a 15-0 halftime deficit and dominated the fourth quarter to claim a 24-15 win over Gentry in nonconference football at Pioneer Stadium.

    Greenland (2-1) got two fourth-quarter touchdowns from junior quarterback Cole Self to shake off a dreadful first half.

    The Pirates, who did not make a first down in the first half, came up with a huge 13-play, 75-yard scoring drive in the fourth quarter to take the lead. Junior tailback Alex Sizemore did much of the work on the drive. But Self scored on a 2-yard keeper around … Continue Reading ››

    Bixby, Okla., 44, Springdale 20

    BIXBY, Okla. — Bixby junior Nic Roller ran for 150 yards and three touchdowns as the Spartans scored 21 unanswered points in the third quarter to turn a tight game into a 44-20 win Friday.

    Springdale (0-3) was in the game at halftime, trailing just 23-20, but key second-half injuries and a physical Bixby run game took their toll as the Spartans pulled away for a third straight win over the Bulldogs.

    Bixby threw the ball 57 times while mounting an improbable comeback for a 45-38 win at Springdale High last year. Friday night, the Spartans pounded the ball with Roller to … Continue Reading ››
