30 Years Ago From the Her­ald-Demo­crat in 1987

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.
