Four of Faulkner County’s five high schools celebrated homecoming Friday night.
Most were short and sweet.
Conway, Mayflower and Conway Christian invoked the mercy rule at the end of the first half, meaning the second half was played with a continuously running clock. Greenbrier won a back-and-forth game against Harrison.
CONWAY 55, LR HALL 0
On homecoming night at Centennial Bank Field at John McConnell Stadium, the Wampus Cats scored on seven of their first eight possessions in building a 49-0 halftime lead against Little Rock Hall, which hasn’t won a game in two years.
Three of the scores were set up when snaps sailed over the head of the Warrior punter.
CHS coach Clint Ashcraft sent his reserves in late in the first half and substituted freely against the outmanned and inept Warriors.
Kevin Chammaro and D.J. Johnson each scored twice for the Cats.
The Cats upped their record to 4-1, 2-0 in 7A/6A Central. Hall fell to 0-5, 0-2.
MAYFLOWER 54 BALD KNOB 0
Adam Dycus completed 20 of 29 passes for 301 yards and four touchdowns in Mayflower’s 54-0 homecoming victory over Bald Knob. The Eagles had 620 yards in total offense.
Justin Bailey carried 11 times for 154 yards and four touchdowns for Mayflower (4-1, 2-0). Madison Chambliss caught five passes for 111 yards and a touchdown. Josh Woodham had six catches for 88 yards and two touchdowns. Drew Duncan had five catches for 75 yards. Garrett Taylor had two catches for 17 yards.
The Eagles accumulated 517 yards of offense and all 54 points in the first half.
No Eagle starter played the second half. Marcus Harper and Stuart Faught rushed for 93 yards and Tyler Roberts had a 10-yard reception from Drew Duncan.
GREENBRIER 47 HARRISON 43
On homecoming at Greenbrier, the Panthers (3-2, 2-0) rallied from a 37-34 deficit to take a victory over Harrison in a wild contest.
The Goblins, with back-to-back close losses to Vilonia and Greenbrier, fell to 0-2 in 5A-West.
CONWAY CHRISTIAN 52 MOUNTAIN PINE 6
The Eagles (2-3, 2-0) built a 45-6 halftime lead over Mountain Pine (0-5, 0-2), which lost its 14th straight game on homecoming at Mission Field.
The Eagles’ Jakob Henry completed five of eight passes for 146 yards with touchdown passes of 48, 62 and 30 yards to Chandler Ferrand. Josiah Smith scored on a 69-yard reception from Ferrand. Ancil Lea scored on runs of 20 and 23 yards. Clayton Dent added a 10-yard scoring run and the Eagles added a safety on a fumbled punt in the end zone.
The Eagles had 370 yards of offense, holding Mountain Pine to 167.
SHILOH CHRISTIAN 55 VILONIA 20
At Vilonia in the only county game that was not a homecoming, Shiloh Christian scored on its first possession, recovered an onside kick and took a 13-0 lead on the way to the 55-20 victory over the battered and bruised Eagles.
Quarterback Daniel Shimer led the high-powered attack for the Saints (2-2-1, 1-1). The Eagles, who put up a scrap for three quarters, fell to 1-4, 1-1.
