Trent Wooldridge broke up a fourth down pass with 24 seconds to go in the game to allow the Booneville Junior High Bearcats to finally subdue Dardanelle, 8-7 Thursday night at Bob Keenaan Field.

One of three Lizard quarterbacks, Elyas Carter hit Kyle Smith for 7 yards on a third-and-13 before Wooldridge broke up the pass intended for Bryland Young.
