NLR victory streak ends in 23-0 defeat
Per the Arkansas Democrat Gazette
The indefinite suspension of junior quarterback Kareame Cotton made things difficult for the North Little Rock Charging Wildcats, but it would never have been easy against the Memphis Whitehaven Tigers.
Whitehaven and North Little Rock finished runners-up in the largest classification of their respective state playoffs last season. Both rely on defense, which was evident from the start of Whitehaven's 23-0 victory over North Little Rock at North Little Rock Stadium on Friday night.
The loss snapped a 37-game regular season winning streak for the Charging Wildcats.
"We're going to play the ones that are there and ready to go, and we're going to try to get better," North Little Rock Coach Jamie Mitchell said.
Mitchell did not specify the reason for Cotton's suspension.
Cotton was replaced at quarterback by junior Damon Bell, who completed 7 of 14 passes for 87 yards.
