Arkansas Stars shoot into Civic Center for a win
April 14, 2006: The Arkansas Stars traveled north to St. Joseph, Missouri to face the Lincoln Capitols. Pre-game: Both teams looked for their first win of the season. Only one would go home with a 1 in the W column. The game looked like a tennis match, reminiscent of the Arkansas at Beaumont game. At the final buzzer, the score was tied. Both teams still alive and hoping for the win. In over-time: The Arkansas Stars sparkled: The winner, by an extra point, 48 to 47.
The game was planned for Saturday, April 15, but, at the last minute, due to venue problems, the game was re-scheduled for Friday, April 14, 2006. Players, coaches, and staff pulled together, made this last minute change, and played the game. The new kicker, Arnold, went 4 for 5 in extra points, one was the game-winning point in over-time. "The team pulled together and played like the professionals they are," said the coaches. The QB, Waggle, was injured and the team had to learn the style of the back-up QB, Mazey. That is a big adjustment for a team to make and then to get off the bus, walk into the facility, play the game, and walk off with a win: This team has become something for Northwest Arkansas to be proud of.
The Arkansas Stars will shoot into Monroe, Louisiana, to take on the Twin Cities Gators, Saturday, April 22. River City Rage will host the Arkansas Stars on April 28 before the Stars head back home for a 7:00 Sunday night game, on May 7.
You can meet your Arkansas Stars Monday night, April 24, 2006 at 6 p.m. at Applebee's of Fayetteville.
