Siloam Springs head coach Gary Orr vowed after the previous week's 19-0 season opening loss at Stilwell, that his Panthers were going back to basics. He said the Panthers would abandon their ideas of throwing the football except when absolutely necessary and find three or four running plays they could execute well.
On Friday night Orr's Panthers unveiled their new game plan in their home opener at Glenn Black Stadium and the results were outstanding.
The confident looking Panthers, running effectively behind a restructured offensive line and sporting a tough, stingy defense, got its first win of the season with a 14-7 victory over the Jay Bulldogs.
However, the 14-7 score didn't give indication of the Panthers' domination of the contest.

Siloam Springs head volleyball coach Rose Cheek reiterated to her team that every match is important and there's no time for relaxing.
Despite winning the first two games against Alma in comfortable fashion, the five-time defending state champion Lady Panthers had to rally in the final two to claim a 3-1 victory in 5A-West Conference play.
The Lady Panthers defeated Alma, 25-16 and 25-9 in the first two games, before losing 23-25 in Game 3.
In Game 4 the tide turned and the Lady Panthers held on for the 25-18 victory.Community on 09/11/2019
