8.27.19 | Little Rock Central 24 – West Memphis 18

103.7 “The Buzz” Kickoff Classic; Little Rock Central Defeats West Memphis 24-18.

High School Football season in Arkansas is officially underway. Last night, Little Rock Central took care of business against a tough West Memphis team.

The final score looked to be locked in at 24-12, but West Memphis completed a last second “Hail Mary” pass to make the score 24-18.

Central scored early in the first quarter and never looked back. At times we saw a good spark from the West Memphis offense but their defense had a very difficult time stopping Central’s #23, Samuel Franklin. Franklin had an outstanding showing in the season opener with 173 yards rushing, 22 carries, and 3 touchdowns.

Little Rock Central plays next Friday, September 6, at home against Rogers Heritage.
