Bobcats want to end year on high note
It is important to go into the off-season with some extra confidence. That is what the Berryville Bobcats hope to do Friday night when they play their final game of the season at Huntsville. The Bobcats (2-7, 0-6 4A-1), who haven't won a conference game since 2013, are trying to avoid a 14th straight conference loss.
"This one is very important, like every game," Berryville coach Austin Winters said. "This one leads into off-season. I mean it is always good to win your last game. It will be one more win from last year and it will be one more conference win from last year."
The Bobcats are out of playoff contention, and after a loss to Pea Ridge last week, the Eagles (3-6, 1-5) have worked themselves out of the playoffs, too. Winters knows they will be looking to end the season on a high note, much like the Bobcats.
"They like to run it right at you," Winters said. "They are very aggressive. They are big up front, not as big as years past, but they have some guys who can move you around."
Even though Berryville lost against Prairie Grove last week, Winters said he saw some positive things and he hopes to continue seeing those things.
"I know the score wasn't in our favor, but we played hard so we are happy with that," Winters said. "We want that to carry that over into practice this week and into the game Friday night."
Berryville's final game of the season is scheduled to kick off at 7 p.m. Friday night in Huntsville.
