    Crazy ending. Fan got on field and was the recipient of one of the best tackles of the day by a female L.R. policewoman. Bad part was the penalty called on Warren for the incident???

    That was one crazy ending and a shame it had to end that way, but I think the officials got it right. It looked to be a crazy Warren fan. Good game and I was surprised that Arkadelphia hung in there.

    Someone explain the rule to me. Because I thought if it was someone with sideline credentials that was on the field it warranted a penalty. If was a random fan, no penalty. I also heard (unsubstantiated) that they penalty was later explained as intentional grounding when they tried to spike the ball. I'm confused.
