By JOHN MAY Hope Hi-Lights Sportswriter Last Friday night, the Arkadelphia Badgers handed the Hope Bobcats their second loss of the season, 19-7, in a game plagued by fumbles and bad field conditions, The Bobcats scored first as Larry Johnson went in from the one-yard line. Johnson's score capped a 34-yard drive. The drive started after Hope recovered an Arkadelphia fumble. Jud Martindale kicked the point to make it 7-0. Arkadelphia came back to cut the margin to 7-6, after a 62- yard drive. Donnie Anderson scored from eight yards out for the touchdown, The point after was no good. The scoring drive started after the Hope punter fumbled the snap. The first half was a series of fumbles by both teams. The slow drizzle made it difficult for both teams to hold the football. The Badgers took the lead to stay in the third period as Mike Ferrell capped a 47-yard drive with a brillant 41-yard run for the TD. Again the Badgers failed on the extra point as they led 12-7. Arkadelphia was never to lose that lead. Hope never really gave Arkadelphia much to worry about after that. Arkadelphia put the icing on the game with just 2l'seconds left in the third quarter. Again the drive was started by a fumble by the Hope punter. Ferrell capped a 74-yard drive with a three-yard plunge. The Badgers converted to make the final score 19-7. In first downs, Arkadelphia had the edge 13-12. The Badgers' Mike Ferrell was the leading round gainer for the game with 117. Slick Davis was the leading rusher for Hope with 95 yards.
