STAFF PHOTO SAMANTHA BAKER -- Springdale HIgh School's Deandre Murray runs the ball downfield Friday, Aug. 31, 2012 during the game against the Pioneers of Batesville High School for the season opener football game at Bulldog Stadium.

Deandre Murray took the handoff, made several defenders miss, then broke a few tackles near the end zone.

Gamebreaker

Springdale High 35, Batesville 0

Why The Bulldogs Won

Deandre Murray had a breakout night, and Springdale took advantage of its dominant running game — which included quarterback Will Whatley — and a solid defensive performance to cruise to the win.

Why The Pioneers Lost

Batesville could never get into an offensive rhythm, and the Pioneers were unable to mount a comeback after falling behind 21-0 at halftime.
