The Alma Airedales’ junior high team battled Harrison tooth for tooth Thursday. 


But the Goblins made more play for a hard-fought 14-12 victory at Citizens Bank Field at Airedale Stadium. 


Harrison took a 7-0 lead in the first before Camden Curd raced 46 yards for a touchdown. 


The Goblins took a 14-6 halftime lead when the Airedales turned a turnover into a fourth-quarter touchdown. Eli Pellam pounced on an errant snap in the end zone to cut Harrison’s lead to two. 


The Goblins then stopped the two-conversion attempt. 


Defensively, Byron Standridge had 13 tackles while playing his game since a knee injury set him back in the team’s season opener with Morrilton. 


Piercen Howell had five and Calbel Parker finished with five tackles apiece. Curd had a fumble recovery and an interception. 


Offensively, Curd finished with 62 yards rushing on seven carries. Israel Towns-Robinson and Cash Farris added 29 and 25 yards, respectively.
