CLASS 7A

North Little Rock 34, Cabot 7

It wasn't what the second-winningest Arkansas high school football coach wanted from the final game of his career, but he accepted it with grace.

Shortly after the North Little Rock Charging Wildcats' victory over the Cabot Panthers at Charging Wildcat Stadium completed Mike Malham's 38th and final season as head football coach at Cabot on Friday night, Malham said his time had come.

"It's been fun," Malham said. "Everyone's been great. I was in a very supportive town, but I've done this for a long time. It's someone else's turn."

Malham's career victories total stands at 301, second most among Arkansas high school coaches to former Barton coach Frank McClellan. Cabot won state championships under Malham in 1983 and 2000, with runner-up finishes in 1997, 1998, and 2013.

North Little Rock (10-0, 7-0 7A-Central) led 14-7 at halftime on touchdown runs of 3 yards by senior running back Oscar Adaway and 9 yards by senior Tyler Day.

Junior running back Brandon Thomas' 36-yard touchdown run gave North Little Rock a 20-7 lead early in the third quarter. Thomas led all rushers with 150 yards on 15 carries.

Bryant 40, Conway 10

Bryant locked up the No. 2 seed from the 7A-Central Conference by locking down Conway on Friday night.

The Hornets' defense kept the Wampus Cats bottled up for most of the night while the offense generated more than 500 yards.

Latavion Scott rushed 21 times for 190 yards and 3 touchdowns for Bryant (8-2, 6-1), which led just 12-3 at halftime but used a 21-point outburst at the start of the second half to bust the game open. Ahmad Adams added 113 yards rushing on 9 carries and scored twice. Quarterback Austin Ledbetter came on in relief of starter Ren Hefley in the second quarter and went 5 of 13 passing for 105 yards.

The victory also gave Bryant a first-round bye when the Class 7A state playoffs begin next week. Conway is the league's No. 3 seed and will host Rogers in the first round.

CLASS 4A

Nashville 20, Bauxite 14 (OT)

Senior quarterback Tristen Jamison's 6-yard touchdown run in overtime lifted Nashville to a 20-14 7-4A victory over Bauxite in the regular-season finale for both teams Friday night at The Pit.

The outcome gave Nashville (8-2, 5-2 7-4A) a first-round home playoff game as the conference's No. 2 seed and denied Bauxite (8-2, 5-2) a share of its first conference championship since 2007.

An overflow crowd watched the teams finish regulation 14-14 after a scoreless second half. Nashville had a chance to win in regulation, but junior place-kicker Jhonny Pioquinto missed a 41-yard field-goal attempt as time expired.

Bauxite's overtime possession ended when senior cornerback/safety Levester Gillard intercepted a tipped pass in the end zone on second down. Jamison's game-winning run came on third down, when he faked a sweep around left end and kept up the middle.

Jamison completed 14 of 21 passes for 177 yards and 2 touchdowns (22 and 55 yards). The Scrappers added 162 rushing yards on 36 attempts.

The Miners finished with 254 total yards, including 182 rushing on 42 attempts.
