1st round playoff matchups
« on: November 02, 2018, 10:05:01 pm »
Should be a good Fri for the 7A Central next week, they will more than likely win 3 of the 4 games:

Catholic at FHS- going with FHS here, but this is not the matchup they wanted.  SJ can run, will be closer than FHS would like.
Rogers at Conway- basically a bye for Conway, starters won't play much in 2nd half
Southside at Sdale- Sdale will fight hard, but with a new QB I can't see them pulling this one out
VB at Northside- Shouldn't be a terribly difficult night for NS

Pretty weak slate of games overall, but the following week it will get fun!

Shouldn't, but I'll look ahead at 2nd round games if my predictions above hold true:

2 really great potential 2nd round games that will be battles and 2 that should (you never know in the playoffs) be predictable.

Conway at West
FHS at Bryant
Northside at Bville
Southside at NLR

Bumping this so we can get some actual playoff football chatter rather than Sdale drama chatter.

I agree with your assessment and in the 2nd Round I'll go with:
Conway at West     Until they prove that they can win in November
FHS at Bryant        Hard to beat them a 2nd time in Bryant
Northside at Bville  Should be a win for the Tigers
Southside at NLR    Because it's NLR

That Southside at Springdale might be a decent  game.   The rest will be blowouts.

FHS Vs Catholic will be closer than FHS wants?  Care to predict a score?  Just curious.

As much as I am a central fan I don't see Fay having too much of a problem with Catholic. The following week Fay better come prepared, I know Bryant will be.

You are both probably right, FHS will more than likely win by 20+.  I still remember SJ's soph year when Catholic almost won at Tiger Stadium, dude is a stud.  The 7A West does not have a RB of his caliber, so I think he can have some success.  Yes, I know FHS has a strong front 7, but SJ is a baller.  He is strong and fast.

UGH....no bueno.. :'( :'(

Would have loved the VB game at home...and would not have been too worried about Bennie in Round 2 AT Bennie....we've broken a lot of Bennie hearts and shattered a lot of dreams in the playoffs at Bennie.

Oh well....maybe next year?

Here, let DixiePrep take this a little farther:

Bennie West wins by single digits @ home
Bryant bounces the Lavender Puppies @ Bryant
Bennie beats the Grizzle by low double digits.
NLR squeezes by Southside 49-48 in triple OT @ NLR

Semi's:
Bryant over West* in a close one
NLR by 2+ TD's over Bennie* @ NLR
*Sorry boys, there's a new sheriff in town and they don't drink chardonney or have an equestrian or diving team... ;)

State Championship:
NLR by 11 over Bryant

Put away the mason jar, Mr. Baitshop. 

First, Van Buren didn't even threaten Bentonville's 3rd team and they'd never come to Tiger Stadium and beat the 1 seed.
 
Second, Bentonville is the 1 seed and isn't traveling anywhere.  West,as the 2, would have to win at NLR to make state.  The Tigers will likely host the winner of Bryant/Fayetteville in round 2, before advancing to state.

My apologies Mr. Spidey Nanner...what I meant to infer was that SOUTHSIDE wouldn't sweat having to go to Bennie for the 2nd round...

You boys got lucky Friday nite….a couple of those dropped ball 5 yards behind your secondary would have flipped the outcome quickly...


And I know the 'ol line about "if If's and But's were Candy and Nuts" thing, but the Mavs left an easy 21 points laying on the grass Friday nite...

Northside won and gets the win and playoff home game as the victor should....Southside will take it on the road next week and see how it goes...

110-39 over the last three years, and it will get worse for you next year.  It is a new era of Grizzly dominance.  Get used to it, ya old dirty Rebel!  :)

A little off topic here but whats up with Fayetteville's stadium? Saw it for the first time back in September and was pretty disappointed in the size of it. I've seen plenty of 4A and 5A schools with bigger stadiums....

Yes, Harmon Field really needs an update.  What is worse is that for certain opponents there are more folks on the visitors side than home side.  Of the 7 large 7A schools in NWA, Harmon field is by far the worst.  Springdale is also old, but still a great HS atmosphere.  The stands are really close to the field.  Harber is new, West is new, Rogers is new. Heritage is my favorite, the Rogers schools district did a great remodel.  Bentonville is not as new, but is kept up well and has new turf. 

Basketball is a different story, the FHS gym is really, really nice.  I would rank it #1 in NWA.

Hit the nail on the head about Harmon.  The visitors side is the worst experience in the conference from parking in the mousetrap between the field and the school or the south side of the stadium with a mile walk uphill to sitting in a pile of fallen leaves, listening to the PA announcer out of a Mickey Mouse speaker, it's definitely deliberate.  How hard would it be to take a leaf blower out there Friday afternoon?

I haven’t been to the Fayetteville stadium since Alma played them in 04. I’ll be up there Friday night. Will be a cold one in Nwa that night.

30 years ago what is now the visitors side was the home side at Harmon field. The visitors side back then was much worse than it is now. Old wooden bleachers and you really thought they would break at any time.

So first game back to Fayetteville since 2004. Doesn’t look like anything has changed. Well besides them not using the scoreboard and bringing in a portable one for the home fans to see. Fayetteville might have had 300 people on the home sides. Why is there very little effort put in from fans and administration? The scoreboard situation is a joke.
