7A/6A NOTEBOOK: Central Poised To End West Run

Posted: November 20, 2012 at 5 a.m.

John Donald, Bentonville linebacker, sacks Kody Frasure, West Memphis quarterback, Friday during the Tigers’ Class 7A playoff game against the Blue Devils at Tiger Stadium in Bentonville. Bentonville defeated West Memphis 42-0, recording its third shutout of the season.

The 7A/6A-Central is again knocking on the door to the state championship game. Every year since the major split of the state's largest classifications into two classifications in 2006, the 7A/6A-West has placed both teams in the state football championship game.
