For the second week in a row, the area High School Football Schedule had a major change before a team takes the field.
One week after Hollister ended due to COVID-19 Protocols, Reeds Spring has the same thing happen this week ending their 2020 season.
That leaves two Lakes Area Teams that will take the field tonight for District Semi-final play with Carthage playing host to Branson in Class 5 and Forsyth hosting their second straight District Playoff Game as they entertain Fair Grove.
Both the Pirates and Panthers lost to their opponents earlier this season as Branson lost to the Tigers 33-10 while Forsyth dropped a 36-20 home decision to the Eagles.
Tonight’s games both start at 7:00 with Branson at Carthage airing on Legends 1063 KRZK while Fair Grove at Forsyth airs on MY 100.1 KOMC.
Meanwhile in Arkansas, the final week of the Regular Season has Harrison, who has already clinched a Number One Seed winning the 5A West Championship, wrapping up their Regular Season at Pea Ridge in a game that will air on 1029 the Z.
Also tonight, the annual match-up featuring Carroll County Schools as Green Forest will play at Berryville with each team seeking their first win of the season.
