Rex’s Rankings: After one week

Bentonville goes for two at the end of the game against Kansas City Rockhurst. The Tigers come up short and fall by a score of 17-16 on the first Friday night of the high school football season in Arkansas.

The Tigers drop from No. 1 to No. 3 overall.

Meanwhile, Fayetteville outlasts Lawton, Okla., by a score of 45-38 and moves into the No. 1 slot.

At War Memorial Stadium in Little Rock, North Little Rock beats an improved Little Rock Catholic squad, 17-7.

So it went in Week 1.

We’re set for No. 1 vs. No. 2 in just the second week of the high school football season.

North Little Rock at Fayetteville this Friday night.

It should be fun.

Greenwood is back in its accustomed spot at No. 1 in Class 6A after Pine Bluff went to Fort Smith Northside and laid an egg, turning the ball over six times and losing 26-15. Greenwood manhandled Springdale by 30 points, 56-26.

In Class 5A, No. 1 Wynne was impressive in a 64-7 victory over Marion, while Batesville moved up to No. 2 with its 34-6 win over Watson Chapel.

In Class 4A, the No. 1 and No. 2 teams, Malvern and Nashville, are from the same conference. And the top three teams (Warren is No. 3) all wear orange.

In Class 3A, it’s Charleston at No. 1 after beating Shiloh Christian, 42-14, and Booneville at No. 2 after defeating Ozark, 27-3.

And it’s status quo in Class 2A with powerhouse Junction City in the No. 1 position following a 33-19 victory over Smackover, which is now ranked No. 5 in Class 3A.
