WHITE HALL ENDS DE QUEEN’S SEASON 28-10

A 4-3 conference record gets a team into the play-offs most seasons. But not in 2017. De Queen, White Hall, and Camden Fairview all finished at 4-3 in 5A South Conference play tied for third place. Based on the Arkansas Activities Association’s "13 Point Rule" used for tie-breakers, it’s the Leopards that will stay home following Friday’s 28-10 loss to White Hall.

After a fine opening kick-off return by Marquez Ester set the Leopards up at the Bulldog 38, De Queen had to settle for a 33 yard field goal by Honorio Dominguez. That 3-0 lead didn’t last long as White Hall raced to a 22-3 halftime lead. The turning point came on a 44 yard scoop and score off a Leopard fumble by the Bulldogs Austin Terrell.

The Leopards re-grouped at intermission. De Queen put together a 14 play drive covering 77 yards that was capped on an 18 yard touchdown run by Hunter Earney to cut the White Hall lead to 22-10 at the end of three quarters. With the home crowd urging them on, De Queen then put together a 17 play drive that stalled on downs at the White Hall nine yard line.

Hunter Earney paced the Leopards with 187 yards and a touchdown on 32 carries. Jace Sims, our McDonalds Player of the Game, anchored the offensive line that cleared the way for Earney. Hunter Earney finished the season with 1,388 yards and 17 touchdowns on 202 carries.

The Leopards finished the season at 5-5. The breakeven year is the best the Leopards have done since 2011, when their record was 6-6. It snaps a streak of five straight losing seasons that saw the Leopards go a combined 10-40.

Prior to the game during Senior Night festivities, the Leopards retired number 25. That’s the number worn by the late Layne Woods, who was tragically killed in a hunting accident two years ago.

DE QUEEN BLANKS MAGNOLIA 31-0

The De Queen Leopards took care of business Friday night in Magnolia to set up a huge week ten match-up with White Hall this week at Bill Blackwood Field with a play-off berth at stake.

The Leopards defense did a remarkable job shutting down Magnolia’s highly touted fullback Kayden Roach in the 31-0 shutout. Roach torched the Leopards for 359 yards on 20 carries in 2016. Friday night, Roach was held to 50 yards on 17 carries.

Malik Beasley, our McDonalds Player of the Game, recovered two timely fumbles and recorded seven tackles to pace the De Queen defense.

Offensively, the Leopards had two backs over 100 yards rushing for the night. Hunter Earney rushed for 135 yards and two touchdowns on 21 carries. Earney topped the1,200 yard mark for the season. Adrian Mendoza added 113 yards and a touchdown on 11 carries. Sedrick Bell also scored a touchdown for De Queen. Honorio Dominguez nailed a 25 yard field goal, and was four for four in PAT’s. Dominguez is now three for three on field goals this season. After missing his first extra point attempt of the season in Mena, he has now converted 27 in a row.

With the win, the Leopards improve to 5-4 on the season and 4-2 in 5A South Conference action. The Leopards close out the regular season at home Friday against White Hall. If the Leopards defeat the Bulldogs, they’ll be the #3 seed from 5A South in the State Play-offs AND they’ll clinch a winning season. De Queen’s last play-off trip was in 2011. De Queen’s last winning season was in 2009.

Hot Springs Lakeside Defeats De Queen 49-14 

   The De Queen Leopards had turned the football over a combined total of five times in their previous six games. The Leopards committed five turnovers on Friday night alone however, and Hot Springs Lakeside took full advantage in rolling up a 49-14 win at Bill Blackwood Field.

    Rams running back Dupree Swanson rushed for 205 yards and four touchdowns. In his three game career against De Queen, Swanson has rushed for 436 yards and ten touchdowns.

    Bright spots for the Leopards Friday night were Hunter Earney on Offense, and Rolando Sotelo on Defense. Earney had 12 carries for 110 yards and two touchdowns. For the season, Earney topped the 1,000 yard mark. Earney has 1,066 yards through the first eight games. The last Leopard to rush for 1,000 yards in a season was Jace Stephens in 2011. Stephens rushed for 1,086 yards in 12 games. Ironically, 2011 was the last time the Leopards made the state play-offs. So hopefully, history will repeat itself.

    Sotelo, our McDonalds Player of the Game, led the tackle chart with 12, including two behind the line of scrimmage. Sotelo now has 65 tackles on the season.

    Despite the loss, the Leopards still control their own destiny. If they can win their last two regular season contests, they’ll be the third seed from the 5A South Conference in the upcoming play-offs. De Queen will try to re-group this week, as they travel to Magnolia to battle the Panthers Friday night.

With Queen Bradi Young and the Homecoming Court looking on, the De Queen Leopards defeated the Camden Fairview Cardinals 24-21 on Bill Blackwood Field Friday night in action you heard live on 102.1 The Good Path.

Mack Carver intercepted a Cardinal pass to end the first half, and he intercepted a Fairview pass at the one yard line with 1:36 to play to allow the Leopards to escape with the victory.

Hunter Earney provided the offense as he rushed for 213 yards and three touchdowns on 33 carries. Honorio Dominguez started the De Queen scoring with a 35 yard field goal in the opening quarter. A one yard scoring run and an eight yard touchdown run by Earney sent the Leopards to halftime with a 17-7 lead. The Leopards put together a 13 play third quarter drive that took 8:43 off the clock. The drive was capped by an Earney one yard plunge, and the Leopards seemed to be firmly in control 24-7 going into the fourth quarter. But the Cardinals scored two fourth quarter touchdowns, and were driving for the win when Carver picked off a Cardinals pass at the Leopard one yard line to seal the De Queen victory.

Although De Queen and Camden Fairview did not play for 42 seasons from 1968 through 2009, Friday night’s victory was the first time the Leopards have defeated the Cardinals since 1965. Since 2010, the Cardinals had won seven in a row in the series by a combined margin of 306-83. But none of that mattered in the big homecoming win at Leopard Stadium Friday night.

The Leopards improved to 4-3 on the season, and 3-1 in 5A South Conference play. De Queen hosts Hot Springs Lakeside Friday night. The Rams are 4-0 in the league.

DE QUEEN HAMMERS HOT SPRINGS 28-8

There were many storylines in Friday night’s 28-8 De Queen win at Hot Springs. Brandon Hagood was released from a Little Rock hospital earlier Friday after three months of recovery time from a July automobile accident. #33 wanted to stop by Hot Springs on his way home to see his teammates, and he went out to midfield for the coin toss as a co-captain prior to the game. Adrian Mendoza had the game of his life. And Coach Stephen Sloan’s gamble on a fourth and one at his own 29 yard line early in the fourth quarter paid off, and the Leopards went on for a 16 play scoring drive that consumed almost nine minutes to put the game away.

Adrian Mendoza, our McDonalds Player of the Game, rushed for 135 yards on 15 carries and scored three touchdowns. Hunter Earney rushed for 90 yards and a score. Mendoza also led the tackle chart with eight. Earney and Bryan Figueroa were credited with seven stops each.

In a fast moving football game involving two teams who love to run the football, the Leopards only had six offensive possessions all night. But they scored touchdowns on four of those six possessions.

With the 28-8 victory, the Leopards improve to 2-1 in 5A South Conference action and 3-3 overall. De Queen hosts Camden Fairview for homecoming Friday night at Leopard Stadium.

DE QUEEN DOMINATES HOPE 40-14

  De Queen tailbacks Hunter Earney and Marquez Ester combined for 242 yards rushing and three touchdowns Friday night as the Leopards spoiled Hope’s homecoming with a 40-14 victory over the Bobcats.

   The Leopards raced to a 40-0 lead midway through the third quarter, invoking the sportsmanship rule, and turned things over to the junior varsity to finish out the contest.

    Earney recovered a Bobcat fumble and later scored the Leopards first touchdown of the night on an eight yard run to make it 7-0 at the end of the opening quarter. Rolando Sotelo capped a 65 yard drive in 13 plays with a two yard scoring run. Then quarterback Mack Carver extended the lead to 21-0 on a 40 yard bootleg keeper. The Leopards extended the lead to 26-0 at the half as Malik Beasley blocked a punt out of the back of the end zone that resulted in a safety, and sophomore Honorio Dominguez drilled a 38 yard field goal with seconds left before intermission.

     De Queen picked up in the third quarter where they left off in the first half. Ester, who rushed for 128 yards on 10 carries, scored on 18 and 40 yard runs in the third quarter to extend the lead to 40-0. Coach Stephen Sloan then turned things over to the reserves to finish out the contest. Hope had two fourth quarter scores against the backup Leopard defense.

      Adrian Mendoza, our McDonalds Player of the Game, paced a tough Leopard defense with six tackles. Four of those tackles came in the Bobcat backfield for losses. Bryan Figueroa was credited with seven stops.

       The Leopards improve to 2-2 on the season, and 1-0 in 5A South Conference play. De Queen hosts the Watson Chapel Wildcats Friday night at Leopard Stadium.

POTEAU POUNDS DE QUEEN 47-14

The De Queen Leopards got off to a sluggish start on the road, and a talented Poteau Pirates team took full advantage to pull away to a 47-14 victory Friday night in Poteau.

The Pirates turned a De Queen interception and a blocked Leopard punt into a 20-0 lead midway through the second quarter. The Leopards then drove 65 yards in five plays, including 61 yards on four carries by Hunter Earney, to pull to within 20-7 on Earney’s 15 yard scoring run. But Poteau scored twice more on 54 and 65 yard pass plays to take a 33-7 lead into the locker room at half.

Poteau recovered an onside kick to start the second half, and quickly increased the lead to 47-7 midway through the third quarter, invoking the 35 point sportsmanship rule.

The Leopards finished the game with a tremendous drive that covered 80 yards in 21 plays. Sophomore Marquez Ester had 13 carries for 45 yards on the drive. The score came on a one yard sneak by quarterback Mack Carver. Poteau ran out the clock to claim the 47-14 victory.

Earney had 115 yards on 13 carries, all in the first half. Ester, our McDonalds Player of the Game, wound up with 90 yards on 20 carries.

De Queen falls to 1-2 on the season. The Leopards open up 5A South Conference action Friday night against the Bobcats in Hope.

DE QUEEN LEOPARDS VS NASHVILLE SCRAPPERS

09/08/17


Thanks to Scott Dunson (KMTB Radio Nashville, AR) for the football pictures.

 

LEOPARDS UPSET NASHVILLE 49-42

09/08/17


There have been some stunning upsets in the De Queen-Nashville rivalry since the series began in 1911. But, Friday night’s 49-42 shocker pulled off by the Leopards ranks right up there as one of the best! After the Scrappers won their season opening game by 40, and the Leopards dropped their opener by 35, nobody gave the Leopards a shot….except for the coaching staff and the Leopards themselves!

Hunter Earney was incredible. Earney rushed for 292 yards and four touchdowns on 27 carries. He had a 40 yard “pick six” return for a score, and accounted for six tackles, including a key seven yard quarterback sack. Earney also returned a kick-off 62 yards to set up another score.

The Leopards passing attack showed significant improvement. Mack Carver completed five of six for 72 yards and a score. Hayden Harp had three receptions for 49 yards and a touchdown.

The Offensive Line dominated Nashville at the point of attack. In the second half, the Leopards controlled the football for almost 20 of the 24 minutes, including a 15 play 80 yard drive that took 8:46 off the clock. Nashville only had 10 second half offensive snaps, and two of those resulted in interceptions.

Speaking of the defense, the Leopards picked off five Scrappers passes on the night. Besides Earney’s “pick six”, Marquez Ester had two interceptions. Carver and Sedrick Bell also had key picks. Rolando Sotelo led the tackle charts with 11. Adrian Mendoza was credited with eight stops.

The kicking game was solid too. Carver averaged 39 yards on three punts, and Honorio Dominguez converted all seven extra point attempts.

Nashville played well, rolling up 441 yards in total offense. But on this special night, the Leopards were a little bit better. The Saline River Stick stays in De Queen for the first time since 2011. The Scrappers had won 18 out of the last 19 meetings.

Hall recently signed a letter of intent for a track scholarship at the University of Central Arkansas in Conway. He plans to earn a teaching degree at U.C.A.
