Hey, hey, what do you say.
Everybody won. Ain’t that something.
Maumelle beat Watson Chapel in overtime. The second overtime win for the Hornets this season.
Central Arkansas Christian rolled past Dover as the mercy rule kicked in as the Mustangs routed the Pirates.
Then North Little Rock took care of business and won easily at Fort Smith Northside.
This was the first time this season that all three North of the River schools won their respective games but it won’t happen this week as CAC has Friday off due to a quirk in the schedule of nine-team 4A-4 conference.
Maumelle travels to Vilonia while the big game of the week in 7A is No. 1 Bryant plays at North Little Rock. It should be something.
Bryant is undefeated but the Hornets been challenged this season while the ‘Cats enter Friday night with a three-game winning streak and an offense clicking behind senior quarterback Malachi Gober.
