The Conway Wampus Cats and Cabot Panthers added another intense entry to their rivalry, opening their respective seasons in September at John McConnell Stadium in Conway.

Both teams entered 2014 off tremendously successful campaigns in 2013. Cabot made it all the way to the 7A championship game last fall, and the Wampus Cats finished just one step behind in the 7A semi-finals.

The Wampus Cats avenged their 2013 loss to Cabot with 24-22 victory at home.
