7A-WEST

BENTONVILLE 63, ROGERS 19

ROGERS -- Quarterback Nathan Lyons threw four first-half touchdown passes to help Bentonville secure a first-round bye in the playoffs with a victory over Rogers.

The Tigers (6-2, 5-0 7A-West) roared to a 28-0 lead after just one quarter as they took advantage of a pair of Rogers turnovers. Lyons threw three touchdown passes in the opening quarter.

The Bentonville defense caused Rogers (5-3, 2-3) all sorts of problems, holding the Mounties without a first down until late in the first half. The Mounties managed just three first downs in the first half.

Lyons completed 16 of 19 passes for 219 yards and 4 touchdowns in just one half as Bentonville led 49-7 at halftime. That pushes Lyons' numbers in conference play to 14 touchdowns and no interceptions in five 7A-West games.
