FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) - Conway nearly put an end to Greenwood’s lengthy winning streak last season, only to lose 23-21 on a late field goal.

The No. 1 Wampus Cats (5-0), the lone remaining undefeated and untied team in Class 7A, hope to made amends for last season’s disappointment when they travel to face the No. 5 Bulldogs (4-1) on Friday night.

Led by coach Clint Ashcraft, Conway hasn’t been challenged since a season-opening 24-22 win over No. 10 Cabot. A win over Class 6A’s top-ranked team would go a long way to establishing the Wampus Cats as a true contender for their first state championship in nearly 50 years.

The Bulldogs had their 50-game winning streak snapped in last year’s Class 6A state championship game, and they’ve won two straight this season after a shocking 42-17 loss to No. 4 Fort Smith Northside.
