SEMIFINALS - Sylvan Hills @ Greenwood
« on: November 17, 2018, 02:40:52 am »
Sylvan Hills @ Greenwood

Greenwood shuts out Searcy who had not been shut out this year.   The Searcy that beat SH three weeks ago.   Likely another shutout here unless starters sit the second half.

Well, no idea what sort of magic SH has had the last couple of weeks, but no doubt they are doing something right. Thought GW survived the dreaded bye week "hangover" game, started sluggish offensively, and businesslike in the end. GW is just too much creatures of habit week in/week out and that bye week has been bad ever since 2014 against ED. You know SH has got to be pumped- first year in 6A, and a semi final appearance. Kudos to them for their effort to this point.

As far as this game, not sure what to expect from SH, obviously you have to think they are huge underdogs, but think they have been since the start of playoffs. I fully expect GW to not overlook them and be laser focused on the task at hand. I am sure some will say mercy rule, shutout, etc. Doesn't matter by how many, just do their jobs and they can play for yet another title. The main thing is as well to stay healthy. We are starting to get a little banged up and that is something in years past we have avoided this time of year.

I am looking forward to Thanksgiving practice and making plans for my family to make the annual trip to the Rock Dec 1st at noon to play for another championship.

I havenít seen the Bears play this year, but my understanding is that they have a young but athletic team.  Theyíve got a decent defense, but the offense was really bad the first half of the year.  It appears that they have improved some as the season has gone along, which makes sense.  That said, I wouldnít expect them to be able to beat Greenwood.  But I think they will put up a better fight than the last time they played Greenwood in the playoffs. 

Iím up in Bentonville now, but im thinking of making the trip down to Greenwood on Friday.  Go Bears!

Well the last time these two met was 2009 in the first round. 48-13 was the final.
I canít really see it being much closer than that.
Iíll say something like 35-7 or 42-14.

Love em or hate em GW is the cream of the crop in 6A.  They would compete well in 7A.  I know Northside beat them but I doubt they could do it again.  NLR and Bryant would probably beat them but GW would probably beat any other 7A team right now.

GW will win the 6A championship.

Such a pleasant surprise to see Sylvan Hills in the semis. Good season for them. I think Greenwood cruises to the State Championship.

GW will take care of business against the Bears. The only choice for SH will be the red pill come Friday.

GW will take this one pretty easily. Good run this season for the Bears but reality is about to set in.

Gonna be a tough trip for Benton. Gonna be tough to beat WM at home. Billy Elmore has always had a knack for winning come playoff time and I think he really wants to avenge that loss to Greenwod in the playoffs last year. So WM will be ready. As for SH and GW, congrats to SH for pulling off the upsets in both weeks and that makes them dangerous. I look for this game to be closer than most expect. Sylvan Hills didn't get here because they are a bad team.

Safe bet because we all know Coach Jones will not run the score up much over 35. Get MR in and run the clock. That's not to say there hasn't  been games when he could have turned the dogs Loose and they could have won by over 50, but that is not his style. Also Bait just wanted to tell you I was very impressed with your Mavs last week. I was in the deer woods but was keeping up with the Mavs game and it sounded like you gave NLR all they wanted and more. I was really pulling for you all. Like always SS always makes noise come playoff time.

Gamedays finally here.

I canít help but find a small part of myself cheering for Sylvan Hills. Congrats to the whole school and program. The semis are a huge accomplishment. But making it as a 3-7 6th seeds upsetting 2 teams on the road shows so much resilience and heart. They believe they could win those games and they did. By the tiny astronomical chance yíall beat Greenwood, yíall definitely will be who Iím cheering for next week.

But as good as yíall played the last two weeks. And however good the opponent was. The bar has just been raised. Russellville and Marion are good warm up games. Now be ready for the big dog.
Hootens I believe picked us by 21 I believe. Or 20. I think thatís about right but it wonít be high scoring like 40 or 50 to 20 or 30. Iím thinking itíll be like 35-7 or 42-14.
Whatever their record, they are in the semis for a reason. And thatís not to be overlooked. Congrats on the season no one expected and hopefully yíall can build on it for next year.
But Greenwood and Benton have a rematch date next week.

The difference in Greenwood the last two years has been the defense. The offense is still Rick Jones offense and will put up points. The defense is among the best in the state as well now. Instead of being a defense that tries to strip the ball, the defense now will literaly bring the wood.
