The battle of unbeatens between Harding Academy and Arkadelphia in the 4A semis would come down to the final seconds and be one to remember.
The Badgers start hot in the first half as quarterback Donovan Whitten has his way and receiver Carter Babb combines for three scores. Out of the locker rooms trailing 21-7, the Wildcats begin storming back.
Quarterback Owen Miller and running back Heath Griffin flip the script by leading time-consuming scoring drives to take the lead. A late Arkadelphia score would tie things up at 28.
In the final minutes, Harding methodically milks the clock and marches into the red zone. The Badgers win 31-28 with a walk-off field goal from Mississippi State kicker commit Kyle Ferrie as time expires.
In their first season moved up from class 3A, the Wildcats will try to earn their fourth straight state championship when they face Malvern in the 4A final on Saturday, December 10th.
