Rex’s Rankings: After six weeks

Within a mile of each other, rematches of two state championship games were played last Friday night.

Both games came down to the final seconds.

In a rematch of the Class 5A title game, Little Rock Christian hit a late field goal to beat Pulaski Academy by a final score of 63-61.

In a rematch of the Class 4A title game, Arkadelphia blocked an extra point late to beat Pulaski Robinson by a final score of 28-27.

The winners were the same two teams than won at War Memorial Stadium back in December. Don’t be surprised if we see playoff rematches later this year.

Bryant still appears to be the class of Class 7A following a 56-7 thrashing of Little Rock Catholic.

And it’s Greenwood and then everybody else in Class 6A. Greenwood downed El Dorado by a final score of 52-24 last Friday.

Top games this week include Cabot at Conway, Bryant at Little Rock Central and Nashville at Joe T. Robinson.
