score to determine a winner. The Tigers whipped the Hogs Saturday
56-3. Nobody was close on the tie-breaker score. Rita Williams
predicted a 34-28 Auburn victory. Despite being off by 47 points,
that prediction was still good enough to claim the first place
prize. So congratulations to Rita Williams - the $100 cash winner in

Hot Springs Lakeside 48
De Queen 14
The Hot Springs Lakeside
Rams turned five De Queen turnovers into 35 first half points. The
Rams took a 41-8 halftime lead, invoked the sportsmanship rule
midway through the third quarter, and cruised to a 48-14 victory
over the Leopards in Hot Springs Friday night.
The Leopards committed six
turnovers on the night. De Queen did force three Lakeside turnovers
after the game was decided. Rolando Sotelo and Adrian Mendoza
claimed fumble recoveries, and Logan Hall picked off his second pass
of the season.
De Queen scores came on a 34
yard pass from Drew Dykes to Logan Hall midway through the first
quarter, and on a three yard fourth quarter scoring run by Brandon
Hagood. Hunter Earney alertly carried in a two point conversion run.
Dykes threw for 129 yards.
Earney was the leading rusher with 47 yards. Sedrick Bell, our
McDonalds Player of the Game, had five receptions for 37 yards.
The Leopards are now 3-5 on
the season, and 2-3 in 5A South Conference play. De Queen hosts
Magnolia Friday night for Senior Night. The Leopards play-off hopes
are still alive. De Queen needs to defeat Magnolia, and Hot Springs
needs to defeat Camden Fairview Friday night if the Leopards are to
return to the play-offs for the first time since the 2011 season.

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
Don’t forget to pick up your
Pigskin Pick’em Play Sheet for Week 7 at one of our sponsoring

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.
