HOOTENS.COM GAME

OF THE WEEK

No. 1 Greenwood at No. 5 Conway: Conway couldn’t snap the Bulldog’s 32-game win streak last season, getting shutout in the second half of a 49-28 loss at Greenwood. This week Greenwood puts a 46-game win streak on the line at Conway.

Both teams are undefeated in conference play and have beaten Fort Smith Southside the past two weeks.

Greenwood junior Kevin Jones kicked a 23-yard field goal with two seconds left to win last week at FS Southside 45-42. Jones leads Greenwood with 34 catches for 484 yards and four TDs. Senior running back Hoyt Smith ran 24 times for 134 yards and two touchdowns at Southside. Smith has 710 yards and 12 TDs this year. Senior quarterback Jabe Burgess, committed to the University of Tulsa, has completed 81 of 127 passes (64 percent) for 1,257 yards and 14 TDs this season. Sophomore linebacker Grant Morgan paces the

Bulldogs with 50 tackles and three interceptions. Greenwood junior offensive tackle Nick Houston (6-7, 305) is ranked as the state’s No. 12 recruiting prospect in the Class of 2015 by hootens.com.

Conway has won five in a row since a 23-9 loss Week 3 at No. 1 Cabot. League coaches picked the Wampus Cats to win the 7A/6A Central. Conway creamed Southside 37-7 two weeks ago, scoring 17 points in the final eight minutes before halftime. Junior RBs Kevin Chamorro (5-10, 210) and Karlil Johnson (5-8, 170; 4.6 speed) combined for 40 carries and 220 yards three weeks ago in a 31-15 win at FS Northside. Conway’s offensive linemen average 270 pounds. Conway offensive tackle Colton Jackson (6-6, 291) has committed to the Arkansas Razorbacks.

A year ago, Conway led Greenwood 28-21 at halftime. The Wampus Cats lost four turnovers and were out-gained 473-264 in that meeting.

Greenwood almost always scores after turnovers or if its defense forces a three-and-out. If Greenwood gets nine or more possessions, it likely wins.

Conway’s defense is good enough from sideline to sideline to challenge Greenwood’s zone or stretch running plays toward the sideline. Conway hasn’t won a big game since a 17-6 victory at FS Southside in the 1993 playoff semifinals.

7A/6A CENTRAL PREDICTIONS

(favored team in ALL CAPS followed by point spread)

GREENWOOD (1) at Conway: Game of the Week.

LR CATHOLIC (19) at LR Parkview: Catholic first-year coach John Fogleman guides the Rockets to their fifth victory of 2013. Catholic had just one win and ranked dead last in Class 7A this time last season. Parkview rides a 5-game losing streak.

Northside gave up 11 unanswered points in the fourth quarter the 31-28 loss at LR Catholic.

FS SOUTHSIDE (13) at Russellville: Smooth Southside QB Isaac Jackson accounted for 300 yards, including four TD passes in last week’s 45-42 loss to Class 6A No. 1 Greenwood.

Southside beat Catholic 42-17 a month ago.

EPISCOPAL (1) at Mayflower: Episcopal in position to finish as the No. 2 playoff seed after last week’s 25-19 win over Barton. Junior DB Will McCastlain forced a fumble, blocked an extra point and intercepted a pass.

WEEK 9 5-2A PREDICTIONS

Bigelow at CUTTER M STAR (2): Bigelow’s pinching, slanting defense gave No. 10 Magnet Cove fits last week, allowing just one TD in a 20-7 loss. It tries to slow Cutter’s leading rusher, senior Austin Morphew, this week. Morphew ran 19 times (mostly jet sweeps) last week for 148 yards and a TD in a 25-14 win at Conway Christian. Cutter’s defense forced Conway Christian sophomore QB Jakob Henry into two interceptions, returning one 60 yards for a TD.

Conway Christian at MAGNET COVE (19): Magnet Cove’s defense bent but never broke last week in a 20-7 win at Bigelow. Senior LB Jacob Costello returned a fumble 96 yards for a TD, and Colton Sleigh returned a fumble 4 yards to seal the win with a minute to go. Magnet Cove’s defense zeroes in on Conway Christian utility man, senior Chandler Ferrand (109 rushing yards vs. Cutter M.Star).

Quitman at MOUNT IDA (38): No. 14 Mount Ida in solid position to grab the No. 2 playoff seed, likely playing host to Murfreesboro in the first round. Mount Ida plays host to No. 37 Poyen Week 10.

Mountain Pine at POYEN (45): Poyen whipped Quitman 54-0 last week. Mountain Pine has dropped 17 in a row.
