2009 - Week 4 Shootouts

Wow! Did we ever send you to 2 good games last Friday? Greenwood walked (or perhaps the offensive players crawled) away with a hard fought 54-51 victory over Shiloh Christian. Lake Hamilton squeaked by Pulaski Academy 32-30 in a matchup of 2 defending state champions.

This week we are going to be a little (make that a lot) Northwest Arkansas "centric." We think that 2 of the 7A West battles will be very interesting. First, we have the battle for Springdale as the Har-Ber Wildcats and the Springdale Bulldogs will tee it up. The second 7A West battle will occur as the defending 7A champions from Bentonville drive about 25 miles south on I-540 to take on the Fayetteville Purple Dogs. If last year's conference battles are any indication, these two games will be absolute slugfests and should be very entertaining.

For those of you interested in the politics of the Arkansas Activities Association, we have one other game of note in NWA. Berryville will travel (we assume) to Shiloh Christian for a rematch of a game that sparked a ton of controversy last fall (and into last spring and summer). I wouldn't go to this game for the contest on the field, but the politics after the game could be interesting if Coach Floyd and the Saints decide to make some sort of "statement" with their offensive performance.

We KNOW that we have missed a ton of games out there, but that's why we ask you to tell us about them in the comments. Have a great weekend! Hopefully, football will be part of it.
