Rex Nelson Archive PageWeek 1 of high school football was a good one when it came to how the Arkansas teams fared against out-of-state competition.

Week 2 was not so kind as three of our top five teams went down.

No. 1 Bentonville lost 24-17 to Broken Arrow, an Oklahoma powerhouse.

No. 3 North Little Rock lost 24-23 to South Panola out of Mississippi. South Panola is traditionally one of the best high school teams in the South.

No. 5 Springdale Har-Ber lost 55-29 to a talented team from the middle of Missouri known as Columbia Rock Bridge.

Our best teams in Arkansas still have a ways to go to match up with the best teams from surrounding states, don’t they?

Fayetteville did manage to defeat Jefferson City, Mo., by a score of 34-24. Fayetteville is now our No. 1 team.

The headlines of the week were the “University of Greenwood’s” 40th consecutive victory, 47-7 over Alma, along with Pulaski Academy’s 42-30 win over Warren on Thursday night in a game televised in parts of four states.
