New Bearcat Head Football Coach Harper led the team to a 14-11 victory over the DeQueen Leopards at Bearcat Stadium Friday night!
The Bearcat defense showed their impeccable skills constantly holding the Leopards back when they would be within 10-yards of scoring territory.
Bearcats scored their first touchdown late in the first quarter but just missed for the extra point. The DeQueen Leopards kicked a successful field goal during the second quarter and at half-time, Bearcats led 6 to 3.
Bearcats scored their second touchdown of the night during the third quarter and ran it in for the extra two points, leading 14 to 3.
DeQueen made their first touchdown of the night with just under three minutes left in the fourth quarter, also opting for the two-point conversion, bringing the score to 14-11.
The team and fans converged onto the field and the Might Bearcat chant rang out! Congratulations to the Bearcats and Coach Harper.
Next week, the team will be on the road as they face the Hot Springs Trojans. The game will be broadcast live right here at MyPulseNews TV…all made possible by our title sponsor – Union Bank of Mena!
