Quick rebound needed following first loss

Har-Ber coach Chris Wood will be the first to say it: turnovers can be a killer in the 7A-West.

Through the first five weeks of the season, the Wildcats had protected the ball perhaps better than any team around. Har-Ber had just four turnovers in those five games – three games with zero miscues – but Friday in Bentonville, the Tigers forced four turnovers, leading to its 24-21 upset of the state’s top-ranked team.

Though Har-Ber has just eight turnovers … Continue Reading ››

Rogers High Coach Mike Loyd wasn't too concerned about the final score in last week's two-quarter scrimmage, but he's worked to correct several mistakes from the 7-3 loss at Russellville.

The Mounties started with six dropped passes in their first two offensive series and also gave up a pair of big plays on Russellville's final offensive series that lead to the only touchdown.

"We have a young football team and we'll get better," Loyd said. "A safety missed a call and didn't communicate. If they don't have their phones, they don't know how to communicate. It cost us even in a scrimmage.

"But we're … Continue Reading ››

This could be the make-or-break week for Bentonville High's boys as far as their place in the 7A-West Conference basketball standings is concerned.

The Tigers (11-9, 7-1) could find themselves anywhere from all alone in first place to down to third place by the end of the week, based on the results of two critical games.

Bentonville returns to action Tuesday night against a Van Buren team that has won six straight since the Pointers suffered a 67-47 loss to the Tigers to open league play last month. Then comes Springdale Har-Ber -- the only team to beat Bentonville in league … Continue Reading ››

Bentonville won't have any problems scouting its two opponents this week as they played each other Friday night.

Bentonville closes out the first half of 7A-West Conference play with a road game Tuesday night against Rogers Heritage, then returns to Tiger Arena for a Friday night showdown with Bentonville West for the first time.

Tigers

Bentonville's boys just missed out on an opportunity to claim a share of the 7A-West lead when Har-Ber edged Fayetteville in overtime Friday night.

So the Tigers will try to keep pace with the Wildcats, and wins over Heritage and West this week would also give Bentonville some separation … Continue Reading ››

BENTONVILLE — There's always a certain amount of change that basketball teams deal with year in and year out because of different players, and Bentonville High girls coach Tom Halbmaier is no different in that matter.

"Our team changed a little bit," Halbmaier said. "Whenever you lose some good senior leadership and bring some youth in, there's always going to be a transitional phase. "In terms of the camaraderie and the chemistry, it's there. We just have to get more reps."
