Week 1 of high school football in Saline County was pretty good. Of course, with the Salt Bowl at the top of the list, how could the week be bad? Not to mention it was the greatest Salt Bowl in recent memory with Benton snapping Bryantâ€™s eight-game winning streak, pulling to a 14-14 final.
Harmony Grove won its fifth straight opener against Poyen while Bauxite and Glen Rose fell victim once again in Week 1 contests.
This week, however, should be much different from a week ago. Blowout after blowout is slated for Week 2. Here are my picks for Week 2 of the season:
BENTON â€“ Approximately 30 people turned out for the first meeting of the Benton Touchdown Club on Monday, Sept. 8, at Western Sizzlinâ€™. The club is formed specifically for Benton Panthers football and will meet on a monthly basis.
John Ginn, treasurer of the club, welcomed members and introduced Panthers Head Coach Scott Neathery.
â€śHow does it feel to come away from the game with Bryant and still be undefeated?â€ť asked Ginn.
LITTLE ROCK â€“ The Bryant Lady Hornets cross country team competed at the Minuteman Cross Country Invitational Saturday held at Western Hills Park in Little Rock.
Bryant started off the regular season in style by winning the team championship in a dominating performance. The Lady Hornets put all their scoring runners in the top 11 places to win with a score of 33 points.Â LR Christian was runner-up with 51 points followed by Cabot (88), Mount St. Mary (118), Vilonia (132), and Pulaski Academy (168).Â There were 15 teams and 114 total runners in the race.Â
