As the sleet fell on Monday, the ice put a halt on practice for the Harrison Goblins.

On Friday, the Goblin football team put the final touches on its second undefeated regular season in two years. After a perfect weekend of weather, the temperatures fell more than 40 degrees on Monday and heavy sleet started around noon.

"We didn't practice at all," said Harrison coach Joel Wells. "We gave them the scouting report and sent them home."

Even though Harrison didn't have school on Tuesday, the Goblins practiced.

"We watched game film Tuesday," said the coach. "We have to find a way to beat Batesville."

Harrison will be playing Batesville in the first round of the Class 5A State Football Playoffs at F.S. Garrison Stadium.

The Pioneers come into the game as the No. 4 seed from the 5A-East. Harrison won its third straight 5A-West title and is the No. 1 seed from the conference. Harrison will play all of its playoff games at home. The finals will be held at War Memorial Stadium in Little Rock.

Wells' first Harrison playoff team was defeated by Batesville. This will be the first time that the two teams have met since then.

Kick off will be at 7 p.m.
