  13. J. Collier

    Looks like it will be Searcy vs Benton for the championship. Man this makes me sick.
  14. J. Collier

    So much for the west having the best teams.
  15. J. Collier

    41-21 Searcy at the half
  16. S. Willians

    28-21 is only 1 touchdown apart. Sure, Benton will receive the 2nd half kickoff but that doesn't mean they will score again.
  17. J. Collier

    Benton will run away with it in the 2nd half. Makes me sick that they will be playing Searcy for the championship.
  18. S. Willians

    The Blue Devil will regroup and come out reloaded. Get ready for a Blue Devil win! Let's go!
  19. J. Collier

    This whole season has been a massive disappointment.
  20. S. Willians

    This was expected. The Blue Devils usually start out slow then they hit another gear. That gear is call heart.
  21. S. Willians

    The 2nd half will be determined by the team that has heart. Blue Devil just need to dig deep down and play.
  22. J. Collier

    Yeah and they still won’t be the other championship team. It’s going to be Benton vs Searcy and most likely Searcy will win it all.
  23. E. Suckmore

    What’s the score
  24. J. Collier

    Like I said this whole season has been a complete failure.
  25. S. Willians

    Keep your head up! The Blue Devils season is not a failure. After all, we made it this far. Where is your faith?
  26. J. Collier

    Not in any of the other three teams. Makes me sick that Greenwood is losing and neither Benton or WM will get the job done.
  27. E. Suckmore

    Come on Blue Devils. Let’s make it an all East State playoff
  28. J. Collier

    Neither of these teams will get the job done.
  29. E. Suckmore

    Seymore win or lose. These four teams left. deserve some respect. they all did a great job
  30. J. Collier

    No they don’t but I agree Searcy is better since my son was kicked off the team. He deserves to be treated like trash. He is trash.
  31. J. Collier

    Hopefully someone kicks him in the mouth on Monday.
  32. C. McNeil

    Touchdown Benton 35-21 Benton up 10:25 mins left in 3rd
  33. J. Collier

    Searcy vs Benton. Wow
  34. E. Suckmore

    Your son was not kicked off the team. he quit
  35. J. Collier

    Either way he is and will always be garbage. He deserves to be treated as such.
  36. E. Suckmore

    If you would not run your mouth and said that Searcy should not be in the playoffs. he probably would’ve got bullied
  37. J. Collier

    I think he needs to be beaten within an inch of his life.
  38. J. Collier

    Hopefully one or most of the team stomps him into the ground before graduation.
  39. J. Kelly

    What’s the score?
  40. J. Collier

    35-21 Benton and 41-28 Searcy with Greenwood looking to score again.

  70. D. Clark
