Batesville falls to Greenwood in 5A state championship game

Posted:

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Hayden Smith threw for 319 yards and

six touchdowns - four to Drew Morgan - as Greenwood made easy work

of Batesville in a 53-11 win in the Class 5A state championship

game.

The championship is the second straight for the Bulldogs (14-0)

and the school's sixth in the last 11 seasons.

The Pioneers (11-3) entered the game having won 10 in a row and

did their best to slow Greenwood early. Batesville closed the

Bulldogs' lead to 14-11 in the first quarter after a 76-yard

touchdown pass from Cody Vaughn to Athan Dockery.

Greenwood took control after that - scoring 39 unanswered points

to take a 53-11 fourth-quarter lead after Smith's sixth touchdown

pass. Smith finished 17 of 24 passing, while Morgan had six catches

for 161 yards.
