It’s time for Benton Panther playoff football! Tonight at 7:00, the 9-2 Benton Panthers travel to face an undefeated (11-0) West Memphis Blue Devils team in the Class 6-A State Semifinals. To the winner is a spot in the Class 6-A State Championship game at War Memorial Stadium on Saturday, December 1 at 12:00 noon. A win by the Panthers would make this year’s team just the seventh in school history to reach the 10-win mark in a season.
Benton reached the semifinal round thanks to a thrilling, come-from-behind win over Jonesboro, 38-37. West Memphis reached tonight’s game with a 34-6 thumping of Pine Bluff. Tonight’s game at Hamilton-Schultz Stadium in West Memphis is a rematch of last season’s Quarterfinal Round game between the two teams. West Memphis broke open a 21-21 tie in the fourth quarter to defeat the Panthers 39-21.
The winner of tonight’s game will face the winner of tonight’s Sylvan Hills @ Greenwood game for the Class 6-A State Championship.
