The Arka Tech

Season closes with two tough matchups

The Arkansas Tech Wonder Boys football team will look to extend their modest three-game winning streak against the Southeastern Oklahoma Savage Storm this Saturday, at Thone Stadium. Kickoff is scheduled for 2 p.m.

The matchup will mark the first of two tough but pivotal home contests to close the season for the Wonder Boys. The first matchup will be against the Savage Storm, who is in a three-way tie for second place in the Great American Conference at 6-3. The following matchup for the Wonder Boys and season finale will be against rival Harding Bisons, who currently sit in the three-way tie for second place as well and winners of six straight.

The Wonder Boys are coming off a one-sided affair in Ada, Oklahoma, last weekend, where they defeated the East Central Tigers, 38-10.

The defense for the Wonder Boys showed up in impressive fashion, allowing only 10 points, all of which were scored in the second quarter.

Cua’ Rose, from McGehee, once again, led the Wonder Boys defense with 11 tackles, while Gio Williams, from Denton, Texas, recorded 10 tackles.

Kj Reid, from Texarkana, pitched in a sack to go along with nine tackles, as well.

Ty Reasnor, from Cashion, Oklahoma, led things for the Wonder Boys on the other side of the ball, with 24 completions for a total of 288 yards, three touchdowns and no turnovers. Reasnor also tacked on a rushing touchdown in the fourth quarter, which stood as the Wonder Boys final score of the day.

Bryan Allen, from Forrest City, led things in the backfield for the Wonder Boys, with 78 total yards and one touchdown.

The Wonder Boys were able to score a touchdown in every quarter, the consistent scoring jumpstarted by an outburst to start the game, leading 14-0 at the end of the first quarter, were good enough to propel the Wonder Boys forward in their seventh win of the season, which puts them in a tie with the Ouachita Baptist Bisons.
