Arp & Palmer qualify to state 7-on-7 tournament


The Arp Tigers hadn’t taken part in a state qualifying 7-on-7 football tournament since 2002.

They decided to host one in conjunction with their seven-mile rival Troup Saturday.

And when the dust settled, they emerged as one of the two teams that punched themselves a ticket to College Station.

Arp defeated Carlisle 30-13 in one of the semifinals to qualify.

In the other semi, Palmer rallied from an early 13-0 deficit to beat Buffalo 40-27 to earn the state bid.

Arp won Pool A, also comprised of Scurry Rosser, Quitman, and Lovelady.

Palmer came out of Pool B, which included Waskom, Ore City, and Arp #3.

Carlisle was the Pool C winner, where they competed against Troup, Garrison, and Mount Enterprise.

Buffalo took Pool D, that also had Frankston, Tenaha, and Arp #2.

Palmer and Arp decided not to play a championship game.
