The Thunderbirds cut the Cats' lead to 8-6 on a two-yard run by Blake Veasley with 1:36 to play in the half.

Walnut Ridge reached into its bag of tricks to come up with another score in closing seconds of the first half. Derek Medlock was on the receiving end of a 45-yard pass from Zach Carson on a double pass.
