Springdale Nabs :·»*#. · · Tour/iey Berth By GRANT HALL TIMES SporU Writer SPRINGDALE - The Sprint- dale Bulldogs romped to an 8356 win over Fayetteville last night, thereby clinching a berth In the, state AAA-;tournament next week in Little Rock. . Springdale, now 11-10 .for the he die season and 6-8 in:,:-AAA-West, ville. beat Fayetteville twice this season, the first time that has happened in at .least eight years. Fayetteville; in losing its fifth straight gameitJellHo 10-17 for the year and* 3-t! in the conference. ·The Bulldogs of ;coach Joe Kretschmar must now win at le'ast one and probablyt both of their remaining fyp games to have a. chance for. the state tournament.. ThexY-play at Rogers tomorrow "nigh't-' and at home against Convay ; .on Friday night. 1 ' · ; . ?$?''?.*· O f f i c i a l l y , ^.the/Bulldogs haven't had a losinsfseason yet, because -theoretically ?faey could win their last two'regular season games, plus.four in the AAA tournament.-afid two more in the overall state; tournament. But realistically,- Uifyjtnay now have to depend on a .favorable coin flip just to.^getyinto the AAA tournament, -'.even if they sweep the remaining tw« fames. , ·' :*.. Newman TURNOVERS'KEY McFerrin When Springdale won earlier Steele at Fayetteville, 57-46. the most Bryant Important statistic was the Red Brooks Dogs' 19-20 from the free throw Burnett line. Last night they^ missed Weir seven free throws--bui-' hit 60 per cent from the. field. But perhaps even more important, Fayettevttle they suffered only six turnovers, Kretschmar compared to 23 by the-Purple Gulley Dogs. Fayetteville committed West nine in the first halt, of- which Davis at-least six resulted-Jn Spring- Harnesf dale field goals. There in lay the difference In the first half, which ended with Springdale ahead 35-23. - :·' . The game was fairly;close in the first quarter, , but Springdale, which led all the way,.to ok a 20-14 lead when David-Bed's field goal just beat the buzzer. Dennis Boyd then added three more field goals in the second quarter to this three in the opening period, leading Springdale to a 15-9 advantage in the second frame. It was in the third quarter that the game turned into a lout, as Springdale poured in 27 points to take-a ; .62-35 lead.. At one point, the'Red Bulldogs doubled Fayetteville,'. 62-31. Jamie Prendergast' r. led the onslaught with eight ·-points, Reed followed with seven/and Kenny Gibbons add«d six. Both teams played, reserves In the final quarter,-.- which ended in a 21-21 standoff. Even Springdale's second-liners were hotr as Jim Culp scored 11 points with- his accurate left- handed shot and Doug Bryant hit two 25-footers; Bryant had not scored preveiously this year, and when his first ram bow shot went in, the entire Springdale bench erupted in merriment. S p r i n ' g d ale coach Phillip Sanders said it best after the game: "Everything .we did was right. We passed well, we played defense, well, and we shot well. This was by far our best offensive game of the year." In particular, he praised the play of Boyd, who led all players in scoring with 17 points and in rebounds with 14. Boyd also blocked a shot or two, as he did in the game at Fayette- '.lle. Mike Kretschmar led Fayette ville with 12 points, as all 1' Bulldogs saw action (all 1', Springdale players also got into the game), Jackie Davis, who played quite a bit early in the year before suffering a too injury, came back in the fourth quarter last night to swish six consecutive free throws. Fayetteville still leads Spring dale in the all-time rivalry, 74 22, but that fact didn't providi much solace on the bus ridi home last night. From the tirm the Bulldogs got on the bus unti it pulled up at FHS, nobody sail a word. They all realize ther will be no trip to the state tour nament unless they dc" Rogers and-or Conway.
