Trojans begin tough stretch of their schedule by hosting Magnolia

Arkansas High quarterback Braylon Bishop calling signals Friday night at Lakeside in Hot Springs. Bishop scored twice to lead the Razorbacks to a 21-14 victory.


HOT SPRINGS, Ark. – Hot Springs is currently tied for first place in the 5A South with unbeaten Texarkana Arkansas High. The Trojans begin their toughest stretch Friday at home against Magnolia.

Now the Trojans begin a journey that will determine if they’re champions, a high seed, or even a playoff team.

Magnolia will be playing its second game in four weeks because of coronavirus issues. Next week the Trojans play in Texarkana, with rival Lakeside still on the schedule.

The Trojans have had one of the most explosive offenses in Arkansas with lopsided wins over Hope and De Queen.

It’s been a tough stretch for Magnolia

It will be interesting to see how much of that changes against the likes of Magnolia, which hasn’t been able to practice much the past month.

If the Hot Springs defense steps up look for the Trojans to win, 21-14.

Lake Hamilton is still unbeaten after six weeks, and getting a real scare at Russellville. The Wolves are slowly getting healthy, and should survive another close challenge Friday night against Siloam Springs, 31-21.

Looks like Arkadelphia will get to play football in October. The unbeaten Badgers (3-0) may struggle a little with an outmanned Harmony Grove Haskell. Arkadelphia will win, 35-12.

Nashville needs to put its emotional win over Joe T. Robinson behind it going to Ashdown. The Scrappers are big favorites, but this is a big rivalry game. Picking Nashville, 38-20.

Cobras close pick over Bauxite

Fountain Lake must find some offense this week to win at Bauxite. The Cobras sneak by, 14-13.

Bismarck has an offense, and should score its second victory of the year at home over Horatio, 27-14.

There will be a shootout in Jessieville, with the Centerpoint Knights coming to town. Really like the Knights’ passing game to be the key in a 38-28 win.

Poor De Queen must travel to Camden. A hungry Fairview club awaits, and will prevail, 48-0.

It’s hard to believe, but Foreman is still ranked No. 10 in Class 2A with a 1-5 record. Murfreesboro is capable, but the Gators finally get untracked, 30-21.

Glen Rose appears too strong for Fouke, 35-14. Genoa Central takes a beating at Prescott, 40-7. Unbeaten Poyen rolls over Mount Ida, 29-7, while Joe T. rebounds to end Malvern’s title hopes, 42-17.
