Sev­enth Grade Car­di­nals Un­de­feated

Washington County Enterprise-Leader - - SPORTS - By Mark Humphrey

FARMINGTON — Coach Si Horn­beck took over coach­ing Farmington’s sev­enth grade foot­ball team for 2018 and led the team to an un­de­feated sea­son.

The sea­son be­gan with a solid 24-0 win over ri­val, Prairie Grove, on Aug. 30 in Hor­beck’s de­but.

“It went well,” Horn­beck said. “We were up 16-0 at half­time after two great touch­down runs by Gabe Bur­fitt and two 2-point con­ver­sions by Har­ri­son Oliver. We tacked on an­other touch­down after half with an­other run by Gabe Bur­fitt. Cameron Van­zant added the 2-point con­ver­sion with a run around the right side.”

That be­came the first of three shutouts posted by the sev­enth graders prompt­ing Horn­beck to say he was ex­tremely pleased with the kids.

“Any­time you can keep a team from scor­ing it’s some­thing to be proud of, espe­cially when that team is the Prairie Grove Tigers,” Horn­beck said. “I loved how phys­i­cal we played. It’s a sign of great things to come.”

That pre­dic­tion proved ac­cu­rate with the Car­di­nals blank­ing Gravette, 8-0, on Sept. 6; then reel­ing off wins over Pea Ridge (22-8), Har­ri­son at Allen Hol­land Field (20-12), and Moun­tain Home (14-12). The sev­enth grade sea­son con­cluded with a road trip to Har­ri­son and Farmington win­ning, 14-0, on Oct. 22.
