2010 Playoffs -- Week 4 Predictions

This week in Arkansas High School football the largest three classifications determine a 2010 champion while the smallest three feature games that will determine the championship pairings next weekend.  All indications are that the weather will be pretty good for these exciting games of week 14.


Bentonville over Fayetteville

The Bentonville Tigers look to finish off a perfect season.  The Purple Bulldogs had to take a road trip for every playoff game on their way to War Memorial. The Tigers faced their toughest test of the year when they won a 38-34 game over Fayetteville in week 4.  Is the real question about this game, "Will Barry Lunney, Sr. retire after an undefeated season?" 


El Dorado over Texarkana

The El Dorado Wildcats only loss this season was in the game at Har-Ber.  They won the first match-up over Texarkana by 6.  We look for a similar margin in Little Rock.  This one will be very entertaining, but the Wildcats bring home back-to-back trophies.


Greenwood over Camden Fairview

Greenwood righted the ship after a slow start.  Camden Fairview has impressed all year long.  We see a close game.  Somehow, Rick Jones and his Greenwood Bulldogs always win those.


Pulaski Academy over Star City
Shiloh Christian over Pulaski Robinson

This week means a tough test for both PA and Shiloh Christian.  The PA Bruins will face a tough Star City Bulldog defense and an offense that can move the football. The Bruins tend to go big offensively when they play better teams (see the Nashville game). The SC Saints will be facing excellent speed from the Senators of Pulaski Robinson. They have seen better (see the Euless Trinity game), but they haven't faced it on a consistent basis this year. If this week plays out as expected, then we will have a classic in War Memorial.


Fountain Lake over Harding Academy
Rivercrest over West Fork


Bearden over Danville
Magnet Cove over Magazine

Again, we are just guessing about 2A and 3A, but Magnet Cove has made a believer out of me after going against them two weeks in a row. Luke Matheson over at Arkansas Varsity has made his playoff picks for this week. Let's hear yours! Have a great weekend!
