Football roundup



7:30 p.m.; Sheridan Garrison Field

Greenbrier (6-2, 4-1) at Harrison (3-5, 1-4)

Notable: Greenbrier is still alive for at least a share of the 5A-West Conference crown.

The Panthers tied with Alma for second in the conference standings with a 4-1 mark. Since Greenbrier beat the Airedales two weeks ago, 36-33, it has the head-to-head advantage for the No. 2 seed. The Panthers are also off to their best start in school history, since joining the West.



7:30 p.m.; Devil Dog Stadium

Vilonia (5-3, 3-2) at Morrilton (1-7, 1-4)

Notable: The Vilonia Eagles have set themselves up real nicely for a 5A-West playoff berth. The Eagles’ 32-31 overtime victory over Siloam Springs during Week 5 turned out to be huge, which eventual set up last week game with Central Arkansas Christian. CAC and Vilonia into last Friday night’s game at 2-2 in the conference, and the winner was going to have an inside track at that final playoff spot. Vilonia ended up winning the game, which can arguably be its biggest win of the season. The Mustangs were bumped down to the fifth spot with a 2-3 mark. Even if the Eagles suffer a setback in one of their next two games, they’ll get the last playoff spot because they beat the Mustangs head-to-head.



7 p.m.; Patrick Stadium

England (0-8, 0-5) at Mayflower (3-5, 3-2)

Notable: Mayflower is coming off a heartbreaking 37-27 loss in Barton.

The Eagles’ game last Friday night was for second in the conference.

Unfortunately for Mayflower, it won’t be able to host a home playoff game at Patrick Stadium this season. Mayflower coach Jed Davis reminded his team this week that No. 3 seeds made a run through the state playoffs last season, including one that made it to the semifinals.


7 p.m., Mission Field, CCS

Notable: This will likely decide third place in 5-2A and a home playoff berth. Senior Night for CCS. The Eagles could finish anywhere from third to fifth in the conference. If they finish third, they will probably host Salem in the first round of the state playoffs. If they lost, they might travel either to Des Arc or Magazine, depending on the outcome of the Cutter Morning Star-Mountain Pine game.
