Week 4 of the high school football season was the first clear week from the rain and lightning. After Hurricane Isaac dropped many inches of rain in Week 1 and carried over into Weeks 2 and 3, many games were canceled or called early throughout the state. As for last week, the Saline County area teams did not fare too well. Bryant beat Benton for the seventh straight time in Salt Bowl XIII, 55-21. Glen Rose won big over Harmony Grove, 48-21 and Bauxite and Sheridan fell in their conference openers. The loss for Bauxite marked the 13th straight, dating back to last season.
