CAMDEN FAIRVIEW 26 DE QUEEN 13


Camden Fairview suited out 88 athletes Friday night, while De Queen only had 38. The Cardinals finally wore down the Leopards scoring the game’s final 20 points for a 26-13 victory in Camden in action you heard live on the Leopard Network – 102.1 The Good Path.


De Queen scored on their first possession of the night. The Leopards moved 82 yards with the score coming on a 13 yard pass from Drew Dykes to Maurice Moore. The big play of the drive was a 51 yard scamper by Mack Carver.


First half turnovers and penalties plagued Camden Fairview as they came up empty after three trips into the red zone. The 7-0 Leopards lead held up until 4:39 to go in the third quarter. After the Cardinals cut it to 7-6, the Leopards answered on a 63 yard drive capped on a seven yard run by Maurice Moore to make it 13-6. Then the Leopards ran out of gas, as Camden Fairview’s Chris Hargraves went to work. Hargraves scored on runs of 36, five, and nine yards to make the final score 26-13. Hargraves had 37 carries for 256 yards and three scores on the night. Four second half De Queen turnovers added fuel to the Cardinals fire.


Michael Quintana led the tackle charts for the Leopards with 11. Logan Hall, our McDonalds Player of the Game, had ten stops. Maurice Moore was also credited with ten tackles.


The Leopards are now 3-4 overall, 2-2 in 5A-South Conference play, and tied for fourth place with Hot Springs. The top four teams advance to the state playoffs. De Queen travels to Hot Springs Lakeside Friday night. The Rams are 3-1 in the league.



Pigskin Pick’Em Week 6

 
Week 6 of the 2016 Pigskin Pick’em Contest is in the books and four contestants picked 9 of 10 correctly, because we tossed out LSU at Florida since the game was postponed due to Hurricane Matthew. Cheryl Huston and Roy Rogers Jr. both of De Queen and Marilyn Baker of Mena and Peggy Keener of Boles, all had perfect predictions, so we went to the tiebreaker and our winner is Cheryl Huston of De Queen. She predicted Alabama would defeat Arkansas by a score of 45-35, missing the final score of 49-30 by 9-points.
 

Don’t forget to pick up your Pigskin Pick’em Play Sheet for Week 7 at one of our sponsoring locations. This week’s games feature, De Queen at Camden Fairview; Nashville at Ashdown; Alabama at Tennessee; Ohio State at Wisconsin and the Dallas Cowboys at Green Bay Packers.


DE QUEEN 29 HOT SPRINGS 28


De Queen topped off homecoming with a thrilling come from behind 29-28 victory over Hot Springs Friday night in front of Queen Martha Mosqueda and her court.


The Leopards turned fumble recoveries by Sedrick Bell and Hunter Earney into a quick 13-0 lead on a one yard run by Maurice Moore and a nine yard keeper by Drew Dykes.
Hot Springs battled back to lead 14-13 at halftime, and the Trojans extended their lead to 21-13 early in the third quarter.


Maurice Moore capped an 80 yard drive with a five yard run. Center Tristan Snyder lined up in the backfield, and caught everyone by surprise by tossing the two point conversion pass to Moore to tie the game at 21. Hot Springs regained the lead at the end of the third quarter at 28-21.


The Leopards Hunter Earney was carried off the field on a stretcher following a vicious hit as he was signaling for a fair catch on a Trojan punt with two minutes to play. Earney was discharged from the hospital later Friday night, and is said to be doing well. The Hot Springs player was ejected from the game for targeting, and the play seemed to ignite the Leopards.


Drew Dykes connected with Sedrick Bell on a 66 yard bomb with 1:38 to play to pull the Leopards to within 28-27. Coach Justin Kramer says he left the decision up to his seniors on homecoming night as to whether to attempt the extra point and play for overtime or go for two and the victory. Maurice Moore, our McDonalds Player of the Game, begged for the football and carried it in for the two point conversion and the thrilling 29-28 victory.


The Leopards, now 3-3 overall and 2-1 in the 5A South Conference, are very much in the play-off picture as they prepare to travel to Camden Fairview Friday night. The Leopards are hoping to return to the state play-offs for the first time since the 2011 season.
