It’s time for Benton Panther football! The Benton Panthers (5-3, 5-0) and Lake Hamilton Wolves (8-0, 5-0) meet tonight at Lake Hamilton with first place in the 6-A West on the line.
Last Friday, the Panthers stunned Class 6-A’s #1 ranked Greenwood Bulldogs, 45-38. Impressed by the Panthers’ play over the last five weeks, the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, Hootens Arkansas Football, and Rex Nelson have installed Benton as the new #1 in Class 6-A. The statewide media poll has Benton as Class 6-A’s third ranked team, behind Greenwood and Lake Hamilton.
Last week’s win over Greenwood moved Benton a step closer to a 6-A West Conference Championship and a first-round bye in the upcoming state playoffs. Benton last won an outright conference championship in 2014.
Standing in the Panthers’ way tonight is an unbeaten Lake Hamilton Wolves team that won last week at Sheridan, 17-10.
