Arkansas Democrat Gazette: Arkadelphia rights its 2018 wrongs
Per Arkansas Democrat Gazette:
BENTON -- Coming off a 2017 state title, Arkadelphia was wondering what was wrong after dropping its first two games of 2018 en route to an 0-5 start.
A year later and coming off a second consecutive Class 4A title, the Badgers (2-0) are in a better state of mind. On Friday night, they disposed of their second consecutive Class 6A team after rallying past Benton 33-20 at Panther Stadium.
"We wanted to be committed to having a better start,'' Arkadelphia Coach J.R. Eldridge said, "but a football season is a whole body of work.
"That body of work that started last season has produced a 10-game winning streak for the Badgers, who trailed 14-7 until a drive late in the first half closed their gap to 14-13 at the break.
"That was huge," Eldridge said of the touchdown. "We came out on fire in the first quarter and got away from that. Then I feel like we kind of got back to that."
