  • Last week: North Little Rock lost a stunner to Little Rock Catholic, 23-6, but the final margin is a bit deceiving, as the last touchdown for the Rockets was scored in the final minute after the North Little Rock defense backed off as it appeared Catholic was going to take the knee and run out the clock. Fayetteville is coming into the game 0-1 after losing to Cabot last week.
