ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Three drives into a game that was supposed to say a lot about Arkansas’ chances this season, the Razorbacks were probably wondering what they’d gotten themselves into.
Ryan Mallett had dropped back to pass five times and had three incompletions and two sacks. The defense had given up 10 points and plenty of yards to the nation’s leading offense.
A young Batesville Pioneer high school football team can now add “one of those crazy games” to their list of experiences.
The Pioneers ended the first half of the regular season with a 58-29, 5A-East District victory over the Paragould Rams, and a game that had everybody looking up for a full moon.
“I know I looked over at Stu (Coach Stuart Smith) at one point and said, “This is bizarre,’” Batesville Coach Dave King said.
He wasn’t laughing at the memory, and most of it wasn’t fun or funny for the Pioneers.
The Lyon College Pipers won their second straight match and earned a 3-1 victory over the Cumberland Lady Bulldogs Sunday afternoon in TranSouth Athletic Conference action at Becknell Gymnasium.

KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) — The record books show that Tony Stewart had two substandard races to start the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship.
His team, though, insisted on finding a positive spin.
Finding that silver lining may ultimately be what saved Stewart’s title chances.
Goalkeeper Matt Callaway notched eight saves and Stephen Dallas scored two goals as the Lyon College Scots stunned the defending national champions and current No. 24 Martin Methodist RedHawks in a 2-0, TranSouth Athletic Conference soccer match Saturday at Huser Field.
Lyon’s victory was its first in school history over the team from Pulaski, Tenn., and snapped a 7-game winless streak to Martin Methodist, dating back to 2002. The Scots tied the RedHawks on Oct. 22, 2005.
NEWARK — The Cedar Ridge Timberwolves collected their first-ever district victory with a 34-13 decision over the Rector Cougars here Friday night.
It was just the second win in the program’s short history. The first was this year’s season opener against Palestine-Wheatley. With Friday’s win, the Timberwolves improved to 2-3 overall and 1-4 in the 2A-3 District. It also helped erase the memory of a 43-8 hammering from Salem the week before.
