NORTH LITTLE ROCK — For the second-straight week, the Golden Goblins of Harrison have fallen in the Class 5A section of the Arkansas Sports Media High School Football Poll.

Last week’s drop was no fault of their own. This week, a 34-14 loss on the road to Siloam Springs made the difference. At the moment, the only team nipping at their heels in the polls is Magnolia. Harrison beat Magnolia in Week 0 by a 42-35 score.

Few other teams were affected in the remaining polls as a result of Friday’s results on the field.

In the Overall Poll, Bryant is still the unanimous top selection. Bentonville, North Little Rock, Greenwood and Pulaski Academy fill out the top five respectively.

Little Rock Christian fell out of the Overall Poll after a three-point loss to Magnolia on Friday. Cabot and Conway are tied to take the place of the Warriors in the sixth spot. At No. 8 is Bentonville West who moved up from ninth. No. 9 is now Benton and Joe T. Robinson enters the poll at No. 10.

Class 7A is still led by Bryant, followed by Bentonville and North Little Rock. Conway moved up to fourth from fifth and swapped places with Cabot.

Greenwood leads Class 6A while Benton and Lake Hamilton remain at second and third respectively. Little Rock Parkview moved up to fourth while Jonesboro fell to fifth after recording its second loss of the season.

Pulaski Academy returned from a trip to Tennessee and remains atop Class 5A after another win. Wynne continues to move up the poll and sits at second. Little Rock Christian’s loss moved them down to third. Texarkana enters the poll at fourth despite not playing a game yet this season and Harrison rounds out the poll at fifth.

Class 4A was unchanged this week. Joe T. Robinson remains at No. 1. Arkadelphia is second followed by Nashville, Shiloh Christian and then Pocahontas.

Harding Academy tops Class 3A in another unchanged poll. Prescott takes second, Newport is third while Booneville and Rison take No. 4 and No. 5.

Like the previous two polls, Class 2A looks just like last week. Fordyce leads the way followed by Junction City, Gurdon, Des Arc and finally Magnet Cove.
