Freshmen end season on a roll, finish 6-4
The Siloam Springs ninth-grade football team finished out its season Thursday night with a 14-7 victory over Springdale Southwest at Panther Stadium.
The Panthers led 7-0 at halftime after touchdown scored by Zachary Hull.
Southwest tied the game on a touchdown that was set up by Siloam Springs muffing a punt.
Hunter Talley scored the go-ahead touchdown for Siloam Springs.
The Panthers finished the season with a threegame winning streak and an overall record of 6-4.
“Super proud of this group for what they have done,” said ninth-grade coach Jonathan Johnson. “By numbers, this is the smallest group we’ve had at the ninthgrade level, but they are certainly not short on heart. It’s the first sixwin season for a freshman class since 2011 and we are all excited to get these guys moving up to join our varsity and JV teams.”
