Here’s how the Top 25 Arkansas high school football teams fared in Week 9: 

1. Bryant (8-0) beat North Little Rock 45-14

After being down 7-3 at the end of the first quarter, the Hornets turned it on and scored fourteen points in each of the remaining quarters, pummeling their arch rival to earn yet another top seed in the 7A-Central.

2. Cabot (7-2) beat Fort Smith Northside 37-0

The Panthers rebounded nicely from a tough loss to top-ranked Cabot and needed only one half to shut out the Grizzlies.

3. Conway (8-1) beat Jonesboro 50-20

Since falling to Cabot in Week 6, the Wampus Cats have outscored opponents 162-40 and now have their sights set on a regular season finale at No.1 Bryant.

4. Pulaski Academy (8-1) lost to Greenwood 33-23

With backup quarterbacks playing for both squads, the Bruins were unable to convert a fourth down trailing by seven points with just over three minutes left and lost their first game to an in-state opponent since 2019.

5. Bentonville (8-1) beat Springdale 45-7

Springdale was no match for the visiting Tigers as Bentonville clinched the No. 1 seed in the 7A-West.

6. Greenwood (8-1) beat Pulaski Academy 33-23

The Bulldog defense was ferocious and helped break a 23-23 tie recovering a fumble with eight minutes left. Once the offense scored, they never relinquished the lead from that point on as they won their 54th-consecutive game at Smith-Robinson Stadium to claim the top spot in the 6A-West.

7. Catholic (9-0) beat El Dorado 42-16

Catholic’s offense put up over 40 points for the second week in a row and the defense continued to play lights out as the Rockets clinched the top seed in their first year playing in the 6A-East.

8. Bentonville West (7-2) beat Fort Smith Southside 35-24

It was closer than they would have preferred, but the Wolverines earned their fifth-straight win and look forward to a showdown with crosstown rival Bentonville next week.

9. Fayetteville (6-3) beat Rogers Heritage 48-7

The Purple Dogs have endured some tough close losses to quality competition, but once again took care of business when they needed to.

10. Joe T. Robinson (8-1) beat White Hall 42-7

After a dogfight last week against Mills, the Senators earned the 5A-Central's top seed and continued to show no signs of fatigue despite being beat up in some key positions.

11. Rogers (7-2) beat Har-Ber 55-6

After taking one on the chin to Bentonville last Friday, the Mounties had a short memory and got right back to work with no problems.

12. Parkview (7-2) beat Hot Springs Lakeside 42-14

The Patriots have averaged 41 points per game in conference play and will need to continue that as they head down to Camden Fairview next week with hopes of winning the 5A-South.

13. Arkadelphia (7-0)

The Badgers were on a bye.

14. Lake Hamilton (8-1) beat Russellville 37-27

Coming off a shutout loss to Greenwood, as well as a bye week, the Wolves had to fight hard but were able to pull out the victory against a stingy Russellville squad.

15. Little Rock Christian (7-2) beat Greenbrier 44-7

The Warriors earned their fourth-consecutive lopsided victory, but face a different animal next week as they cap regular season play at home against Greenwood.

16. Camden Fairview (8-1) beat Hot Springs 34-7

Nearing halftime, Camden Fairview had a narrow 13-7 lead before reeling off 21 unanswered points and pitching a shutout in the second half. The Cardinals will face off against Parkview for the 5A-South championship next week.

17. Shiloh Christian (8-1) beat Prairie Grove 55-22

There is not much more to be said about the Saints that has not been mentioned already as they continue to dominate the 5A-West having scored over 50 points in each conference game and now have the number one seed.

18. Benton (7-2) beat West Memphis 55-38

Down 18-12 at halftime, the Panthers scored 38 points from there, including 24 in the fourth quarter, to take a step closer to clinching the two seed in the 6A-East.

19. Mills (8-1) beat Morrilton 30-23

Morrilton gave the Comets all they wanted, but Mills fought hard as has been the case all year to rebound from a heartbreaking loss to Robinson last week

20. Nettleton (7-2) lost to Valley View 34-7

Coming in with an undefeated conference record, the Raiders ended up being no match for blazing hot Valley View.

21. Harding Academy (8-0) beat Heber Springs 39-13

The Wildcats have not been challenged much in 4A-4 play and will wrap up the regular season against Cave City next week already possessing the top seed.

22. Valley View (8-1) beat Nettleton 34-7

The Blazers continue to tear through the madness that has been the 5A-East and earned the top seed.

23. Hot Springs (6-3) lost to Camden Fairview 34-7

It was a very competitive game until early in the fourth quarter, but crucial mistakes doomed the Trojans as they fell to the Cardinals at home.

24. Wynne (7-2) beat Forrest City 49-14

A very motivated, and frankly upset, Yellowjacket squad beat up on Forrest City during senior night and look to get revenge on Nettleton in the season finale following last year’s defeat.

25. Farmington (6-3) beat Pea Ridge 49-16

Farmington got back to its winning ways following a frustrating loss to Shiloh Christian, particularly a frustrating fourth quarter, and move onto the Battle of Highway 62 against Prairie Grove.
