Northside hadn't beaten Bentonville in a decade but the Grizzlies looked poised to end the skid as they rolled into Northwest Arkansas sitting at 4-0 and then led the Tigers 15 seconds into the game.

Kiondre Thomas returned the opening kickoff for a score while the Northside defense held Bentonville to 33 yards rushing in the first half. The Grizzlies led 19-7 with four minutes left in the third quarter but that's when the Tigers' offense came to life.

Bentonville ran off 22 straight points as they rallied for a 29-26 win in week five. The Tigers' running back Dylan Smith ran for more than 140 yards and two scores including what proved to be the game winner with less than four minutes remaining.
