Central Cougars Defeat Siloam Springs Panthers to Advance to Semi-Finals

HELENA-WEST HELENA-Three touchdown passes and two touchdown runs from Deondra Johnson propelled the Helena-West Helena Central Cougars to the semifinals of the playoffs for the first time in school history as the Cougars blasted the Panthers 38-14.

Siloam Springs, seeking their first 10-win season in over 50 years, stuffed the Cougars on the opening possession and went on a 5-play, 64-yard drive. Jake Cifuentes put the Panthers on the board with a 10-yard touchdown run. Pablo Castillo kicked the extra point to make the score 7-0 and the Cougars trailed for the first time since the third week of the season at West Memphis.

Helena-West Helena Central got on the board with two seconds to go in the first quarter when Deondra Jonson scored on a 3-yard touchdown run to cap off a 13-play, 98-yard drive. The try for two failed and Siloam Springs was clinging to a 7-6 lead at the end of the first quarter.





After forcing a Siloam Springs punt on the ensuing possession, the Cougars went 90 yards on 14 plays. Johnson hit Kyrin Burrell for a 31-yard scoring strike. The try for two failed and Helena-West Helena led 12-7 with 3:46 to go in the first half.

After Siloam missed a 45-yard field goal attempt, the Cougars went 72 yards on two plays. Johnson hit Turrell Williams on a 60-yard touchdown strike with 25 seconds to go before the intermission. Johnson then threw to Juwan North to put the Cougars up 20-7 at the half.


Helena-West Helena stuffed Siloam to open the second half and took the enuing possession 54 yards on six plays. Williams scored on a 17-yard run with 6:31 in the third. The try for two failed and Helena-West Helena was pulling away with a 26-7 lead.

Winston got an interception on the second play of the fourth quarter. Three plays later, Johnson hit Goldsberry from seven yards out to push the lead to 32-7.

Johnson got a 22 yard touchdown run with 8:37 remaining in the game. Siloam got a score against the Cougar reserves when Anthony Autry scored on a 9-yard touchdown run to cap off an 11-play, 61-yard drive. Castillo hit the PAT to make the final 38-14.

Cougar Coach Russell Smith was happy following the win saying, "I am really proud of our kids and how they responded to the early adversity. We played hard. It was a big win. We have to work hard to prepare for Monticello."

Desoto Thunderbirds -- 1A North State Champs

The Desoto Thunderbirds defeated the Winona Stars by a score of 31-6 at Sam Howe Field in Helena-West Helena on Friday, November 21, 2008 to become the 1A North State Champions in the MPSA.

Here are a few snapshots taken with my blackberry prior to the tip off:




The T-Birds travel to Jackson, MS on Saturday, November 29, 2008 to place against a Louisiana team at Millsap College at 11:00 a.m.

We are proud of this team and its accomplishments. On Tuesday, November 18, 2008, the Helena-West Helena City Council Unanimously passed a Resolution congratulating the T-Birds and the Cougars for their record successes this year. A copy of that resolution is posted at Cougar-T-Bird Resolution.

GO THUNDERBIRDS!
