The Siloam Springs Panthers took one more giant step towards winning their first conference championship in 37 years by whipping the out-manned Bentonville Tigers 24-6 at Glenn W. Black Stadium in Siloam Springs.
With the win, the Panthers were assured of a playoff spot and at least a tie for the 1-AAA title. Only the Harrison Goblins, whom the Panthers would meet in their regular season finale the next Friday night, stood in the way of Siloam Springs’ first title since 1950. The Panthers were 6-3 overall and 2-0 in the 1-AAA. Harrison was 5-4 and 1-1. Bentonville fell to 3-6 and 1-2.
