Reserves spark Fayetteville in opener

The Fayetteville Bulldogs had three starters score double-digits, but it was two bench players who proved the difference in Tuesday's nonconference win over Conway in Bulldog Arena. Alonzo Releford knocked in the go-ahead jumper with 13 seconds left in the game and Sully Witte drew a charge that negated a potential game-winning layup from Conway's Terry Clardy to lead the Bulldogs to the 63-62 win in the first game of the season. "It's about as much depth as we've had in a long time," Fayetteville boys basketball coach Kyle Adams said. "I think back to the Manuale Watkins group -- they were about 9-10 guys deep, and I think this group can be that way, too." Releford scored six points, including the shot at the end of the game, but his brother, Tamaury, proved to be the biggest challenge for Conway, which struggled to match up with the 6-foot-7 sophomore center. He had 19 points, including his team's first six points of the fourth quarter that jump-started the Bulldogs' big run. "He's a load around the rim," Adams said. Tamaury even recorded a couple of assists, kicking out the ball to shooters in the corner, when the defense collapsed on him. Conway coach Brian "Salty" Longing thought this action was the difference in the game. "They took advantage of their personnel," Longing said. "They spread the floor, they went high-low with the big Releford kid, and when we pinched, they kicked it out to their shooters. That's a great offense." Conway had stormed its way back to the lead at the half behind a strong second quarter that netted it 17 of its 62 points in the game. The Wampus Cats went 6 of 7 from the free-throw line in the quarter, driven by Caleb London's four consecutive makes from the line that put Conway ahead before the half ended. London scored 20 points to pace the Wampus Cats' offense while his teammate Kylen Milton dropped 16. Yet it was Clardy who kept Conway in the game late. The senior scored five of his points in the last minute of the game and almost scored the game-winner before he was called for the charge. Clardy had been taken out earlier in the game, and the fourth quarter was the first action he had since early in the third quarter. "He struggled at times tonight, but when he came back in the fourth quarter, I thought he played a lot more inside himself and played more of his game," Longing said. Fayetteville's Collin Cooper scored 16 and went 5 of 6 from the free-throw line in the fourth quarter, while Conner Barnett hit three 3-pointers on his way to 14 points. The Bulldogs next face Fort Smith Northside at home next Tuesday while Conway will travel to Memphis, Tenn., for the Rumble on the Ridge tournament where it'll face hometown Southwind in the first round next Thursday....

Fayetteville handles LR Catholic

Darius Bowers threw five touchdown passes and Connor Flannigan set school receiving records, but special teams came up with the play of the game during Fayetteville's 45-17 victory against Little Rock Catholic at Harmon Field on Friday. After the Bulldogs (9-2) raced out to a 24-7 lead behind three touchdown passes by Bowers , an onside kick surprised the Rockets (5-6) and was recovered by sophomore Sebastian Rodriquez at the Catholic 43. Three plays later, Bowers hit Beau Stuckey with a 38-yard touchdown pass to push the lead to 31-7 with 7:54 remaining in the first half. "That was a big, big play," Little Rock Catholic Coach John Fogleman said. "We had finally held them for the first time -- to a field goal anyway, if you can call that a hold -- and that play gave them even more momentum." Fayetteville Coach Billy Dawson and his staff noticed a tendency they exploited with their first onside kick attempt this season. "It was good for momentum and just separation," Dawson said. "They're not a big-play team, so getting that three-score lead was big." In the first half, Bowers connected on touchdown passes of 36, 4 and 13 yards to Flannigan, who now owns single-season school records for receptions, receiving yards and receiving touchdowns. Bowers' other two touchdowns went for 53 and 38 yards to Stuckey. Dawson called the receiving duo "dynamite players." Fogleman agreed. "They're not big, but they are fast," Fogleman said. "They run great routes and are very precise, and their quarterback is really good with his timing." Fayetteville's defense did its part thanks to pressure at the point of attack from players such as Carson Johnson, Colman Johnson, Quade Mosier, Trindyn Meadows and Keondre Conley. The secondary chipped in with seven pass deflections and an interception by Harrington Taylor. "We were getting our hands on them, and we caught one finally," Dawson said. "We're getting better, especially in our secondary, and defensively we've been playing a lot better these past three weeks." Little Rock Catholic's only touchdown drive of the first half covered 38 yards in 10 plays after a long kickoff return by Samy Johnson energized the Rockets. The Rockets converted three third downs on the drive, including a conversion on a 13-yard touchdown pass from Cooper Monroe to Nick Cobb to begin the second quarter. Johnson later left the game with a leg injury and was taken for X-rays. "I think he'll be OK. He's got a great future ahead of him," Fogleman said of Johnson. Little Rock Catholic's other score came when Jacob Schneider connected on a 35-yard field goal to cut Fayetteville's lead to 38-10 with 2:38 remaining in the first half. The Rockets added another score when Monroe connected with Robert Bavon for a 57-yard touchdown pass that created the final margin. "Those kids aren't going to quit," Fogleman said. "That's the great thing about coaching at Catholic. Quality kids and quality people and a lot of great support as you can see by how many made the trip."...

CLASS 6A Less could mean more production for Cooper

Colin Cooper won't have as many duties on the basketball court as the last two years, and he believes it can make him be a more productive player this season. The senior guard, who was Fayetteville's leading scorer last season, also had to be the one mainly responsible for bringing the ball up the floor against opposing defenses. That won't be the case this time. "Now we have two guards that can really help us bring the ball up the court," Cooper said. "I feel that is going to free me up a lot more and that will help me with my cardio. I won't be as tired." Those words are music to Fayetteville boys basketball coach Kyle Adams' ears. Cooper will remain the go-to guy when the Bulldogs need a clutch basket, and the offense will continue to run through him whether he is the scorer or helping a teammate get some points. But a fresher Cooper will be a big plus, particularly late in the game. "The last two years, we weren't able to do that," Adams said. "What I tried to do at the end of each quarter was -- if we had a break and on a defensive possession -- I would get him out, sit him and let him sit through the timeout before he would get back in to start the new quarter. "This year, I think we are deeper than we were in the past. That will give him opportunities to rest more, but I know me and I know him. He doesn't want to sit, and I promise you I don't want him sitting on the bench unless he's in foul trouble. I just let him sub himself out if he's tired and he thinks he needs a minute." Adams said there are no limits on Cooper when he's on the floor and wants to shoot -- something he earned as early as his sophomore season. He continues to be Fayetteville's most dangerous perimeter threat, and opposing teams must be aware of him at all times, which also helps his Bulldog teammates get scoring opportunities when Cooper gets a little too much attention. Cooper, however, will be the first to say he needed to improve on his defensive game before the season started, and Adams agreed. "It's just part of my game that can help take me to the next level," Cooper said. "I already feel like I can play offense pretty well, so I need to work on my defense." Cooper already has made plans for that next level. He has verbally committed to play college basketball at the University of Central Arkansas and will sign a letter of intent later this month. "I was really proud of him for committing," Adams said. "I think UCA is the perfect place for him. Coach (Russ) Pennell does such a great job, and he's really got the program on the rise. Collin fits that program perfectly. "He just wants to win so badly that the competitiveness comes out of him. He's not going to think about what's going to happen to him next year. He's in the moment right then, and he's going to win the day and win the possession -- whatever it takes."...

Fayetteville downs Springdale Har-Ber

When the Fayetteville Bulldogs took the field against Springdale Har-Ber, they were taking on a team that had much more riding on the game than anticipated. After the Wildcats were forced to forfeit three games for playing an ineligible player, a home loss in the final game of their regular season would end their postseason hopes, and they put up a first-half fight that showed their determination. Still, the Bulldogs got big plays from quarterback Darius Bowers and receiver Connor Flannigan when they needed to, and they went on to play a dominant second half in a 42-14 victory Friday night at Wildcat Stadium. "It was a good first half, physical game," said Fayetteville coach Billy Dawson. "They got a couple kids hurt that hurt them late, but two physical teams, and it was kind of a back-and-forth game early." When Har-Ber junior quarterback Blaise Wittschen went down with an apparent leg injury midway through the third quarter, the Wildcats' offense effectively stalled from that point on. His 9-for-18, 141-yard performance through the air opened up running lanes that allowed him to keep his team in the game. Har-Ber played without its leading rusher Jay Burns, who ran for 356 yards in a win against Rogers last week. It marked Burns' second 300-plus yard rushing game this season. With no real threat looming from the other side, Bowers and Flannigan took control and connected for their second score of the game on a 19-yard strike. Bowers finished with a 20 of 29 passing for 204 yards and three scores. Flannigan hauled in nine passes for 145 yards. "We knew that they left the middle of the field open a lot, and they were crashing on single moves, so we knew that we could expose some double moves toward the middle of the field, and that's what we did," Flannigan said. At the end of the first half, Fayetteville missed a 45-yard field goal attempt that would have increased its lead to two possessions. The Wildcats kicked the ball to open the game, so they got the ball first in the third quarter with a chance to tie things up. An interception killed the drive, and they punted on their second possession of the half before Fayetteville scored. The road victory is a momentum-builder for the postseason, Dawson said. "I think it adds a building block to the three or four weeks that we've had, and we've played pretty well," Dawson said. "I didn't think we played as well tonight, but we'll take the win." ...

Bentonville's counter move foils Fayetteville's strategy

Camren Fischer saw the muddy conditions and chose to sacrifice the Oaklawn Park course record in order to help his Fayetteville teammates try to win the Class 6A boys cross country title. The plan almost worked, except Bentonville High's boys figured out the Bulldogs' strategy and found a counter move for it. The Tigers had all five runners place in the top 10, and it was enough to claim their second consecutive title and seventh overall. Bentonville, who won the 6A-West Conference title by a two-point margin last week, scored 28 points in the meet while Fayetteville was right behind with 33. "Those boys really grouped up well," Bentonville coach Mike Power said. "We knew it would be a bit slower, and we figured Fayetteville's strategy out pretty well. They were mentally prepared for it. "It was getting a little close there at the end. We had a good finish by some of the senior boys, and they came through at the end. It was a really exciting finish." Fischer, who ran his final high school meet inside the state borders, won the individual title for a third straight time. The senior covered the 5,000 meters in 16 minutes, 19.9 seconds -- almost a minute slower than his time at the 6A-West meet last week. He used the deliberately slower pace to help set the pace for teammate Carter Betts and others. "It was all about the team," Fischer said. "We wanted that team title. I was focused around the title, and nothing about me. Obviously, I was going to do my best, and it was going to come down to strategy. "I would have liked to have the state record, but you can't always have it. I tried to take it easier today and came across the mile in 5:20, which is my tempo pace for a training run. I had my teammate with me and about 1 kilometer left and started picking it up a little." While Fischer put distance between him and Betts, Bentonville junior Lukas Pabst picked up his pace and passed Betts on the final stretch. Pabst's time was 16:27.1, slightly more than a second ahead of Pabst, while Tiger teammate Daniel Graham finished fourth at 16:32.5 Coleman Wilson was Bentonville's third runner and finished fifth, while twin brothers Dawson and Dylan Mayberry took seventh and 10, respectively. Springdale Har-Ber was third in team scores with 87, while Rogers and Conway both had 129. Class 5A It's a new classification for Lake Hamilton, but the outcome turned out the same. The Wolves placed three runners in the top 11 en route to their sixth straight title. Lake Hamilton finished with 53 points, followed by Mountain Home with 88 and Siloam Springs with 137, six points ahead of Russellville. Dominic Ward of Greenbrier claimed the individual title with his time of 16:46.1, more than 16 seconds faster than runnerup Kazdyn Chandler of Nettleton. Colby Swecker, last year's 6A champ, was the first of three Lake Hamilton runners at 17:09.3, followed by William Swecker (ninth, 17:29.5) and Skylar Davis (11th, 17:34.6). Class 4A Huntsville placed four runners in the top 10 and captured the first cross country state title in school history. The Eagles finished with 43 points while De Queen finished second with 61. Pea Ridge was a distant third with 134, one point ahead of Berryville. Jacob Braswell led Huntsville with his second-place finish as he had a time of 17:30.1, almost a second faster than De Queen's Hector Hernandez. Colton Edens took fourth for Huntsville, followed by Jett Loenneke and Tanner Barbee, who finished eighth and 10th, respectively. Parker Ables of Heber Springs took the individual championship as he covered the course in 16:53.5. Class 3A Cave City placed four of its five runners in the top 10 and the Cavemen captured their second straight state championship. Cave City finished with 33 points, while West Fork was a distant second with 110, 23 less than Little Rock Episcopal Collegiate. Lexington Hilton of Green Forest earned the individual title with his time of 16:38.8. Fischer Miller led Cave City with his second-place finish at 16:45.8, followed by Luke Walling (third, 16:50.2), Kendall Townsley (fifth, 17:31.1) and Caleb Anderson (seventh, 18:01.). Class 1A/2A Justice Neufeld of Acorn held off Jacob Tyburski of Haas Hall-Bentonville and claimed the individual title by a 6-second margin. Neufeld finished the course in 18:06.1 , while Tyburski's time was 18:12.2. Ouachita claimed its second straight team title with 89 points, followed by Quitman with 123 and Haas Hall-Bentonville with 133. The Warriors were led by Ethan Wilson and Tanner Wilson, who finished ninth and 10th, respectively....
