The class 6A No. 1 team in the state, the El Dorado Wildcats, wasted little time in dispatching the Sheridan Yellowjackets 38-7 at Yellowjackets Stadium on Friday night.
âWe got outplayed and out-coached,â Sheridan Coach Louis Campbell said. âIt wasnât even a ballgame. Their bus driver beat our bus driver.â
The Wildcats (6-0, 3-0 6A South) scored 21 points in the first quarter and was up 35-0 at half time, invoking the mercy rule, where the clock stops for timeouts and injuries only.

The Bryant Lady Hornets volleyball team swept the Cabot Lady Panthers 3-0 (25-23, 25-16, 25-17) in 7A Central conference action on Tuesday night in Cabot. The Lady Hornets won their fifth consecutive conference match and improved to 9-3 overall with an 8-2 record in conference, good for second place behind Conway.
âWeâve got another win under us,â Bryant Coach Beth Solomon said. âThe girls played well tonight, but not as well as we could have.
âI think they were confident they would win tonight so they didnât come out and play as hard as they should have.â
This time last year, Glen Rose quarterback Collin Hunter had one of the best running backs in the state behind him with Steven Kehner. Having that âsafety blanketâ in the backfield gave Hunter a year to mature and become a leader for the Glen Rose Beavers without the added pressure of being a starting quarterback.
Friday night, it seemed to pay off as Hunter led the Glen Rose Beavers to a 35-0 win over undefeated Jessieville on the road.
âHe is growing up every week,â coach Mark Kehner said. âThis was probably his first big game with the pressure on him to make plays and lead us.â
