LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- The THV Showcase Game of the Week featured Jonesboro and Little Rock Central and we've got all the highlights!
Jonesboro is coming off a huge win over rival West Memphis in Week 4 as they head into Goggle Stadium to face Little Rock Central.
The Tigers look to get something going early but to no avail. Early in the first quarter, Central is forced to punt. Jonesboro's Jerome Phillips catches the punt and avoids five tackles as he heads down the field for a Hurricane touchdown.
Later in the first quarter, Tigers quarterback Cooper Westbrook scrambles and finds A.J. Tucker just one yard short of the goal line. That pass leads to a Tiger touchdown. Tying the game 7-7.
Tigers look to take the lead in the 2nd quarter and they do just that. Quarterback Westbrook makes another great play with a quick pass to Reggie Harris. Harris turns on the jets and takes that pass 75 yards fora touchdown.
But Jonesboro won't let that stop them as Quarterback D.J. Anderson finds Matthew Wits in the end zone to tie the game 14-14 just before halftime.
Although it was a close game, Jonesboro comes out on top with a 35-24 win over LIRA Central.
