It wasn’t a good week on the road for North of the River football teams as Maumelle and Central Arkansas Christian both lost last Friday night at Morrilton and Clinton, while North Little Rock won at Jonesboro to spoil the Hurricane homecoming.
Maumelle and CAC will both be at home this week hosting, respectively, Watson Chapel and Dover while the ‘Cats are headed to Fort Smith Northside.
With six teams getting in from the 7A-Central, North Little Rock has already qualified for the playoffs, while Maumelle and CAC would need to win all the remaining games on their respective schedules and get some help around the conferences to make it in.
Both the Hornets and Mustangs have winnable games this week as their opponents are a combined 3-12.
