Carbon Hill Bulldogs – Region 5 Playoffs

carbon hill bulldogs

Located in the town of Carbon Hill, Arkansas, the Carbon Hill Bulldogs have been playing high school sports since 1968. The team competes in the 4A, Region 5 league. They are a member of the Arkansas State High School Athletic Association (AHSAA). The team has won eight conference championships in its history.

Jemison Panthers

Despite the fact that Carbon Hill rolled up a 78-7 score, the Bulldogs are still looking for their first win of the season. The Jemison Panthers are a much different animal and will be a tougher challenge for the defending champs. The two teams will go head to head in the coming weeks. The Jemison juggernaut has been playing like a team possessed for the past five years and can be counted among the most complete echelons in the state.

The Bulldogs were on a bye the previous weekend and did not have the luxury of resting on their laurels. They managed to put up a respectable number of points and will be playing their final game of the season next week. For the defending champs, the main event is on the horizon and their upcoming opponent will be a retooled squad. The best bet is to go in hard and come out of the gates with a bang. The Bulldogs are known for their defense, but the offense isn’t half bad and they’re the type of team that can put up points no matter the circumstances.

The Bulldogs are averaging over a hundred yards a game rushing wise and a whopping four touchdowns apiece. The offensive line is a cohesive unit and the scrimmage lines are a testament to the fact that they can get their man on the field. The defense is no slouch either, as they have forced three turnovers and have forced four fumbles so far this season.

Winfield Pirates

Despite the fact that the Winfield Pirates defeated the Carbon Hill Bulldogs 62-0 on Friday, Winfield still has some work to do if they want to be the best in the area. The Pirates have been putting up some good numbers this year, but they will have to face some stiff competition in the near future if they want to keep their season alive.

The Winfield Pirates were impressive on both sides of the ball. The aforementioned “Melon” was the best score they gave up in the first quarter, and the Winfield defense kept them out of the end zone in the third quarter. The Bulldogs tallied 321 total yards of offense, but they were not quite as impressive on the ground.

The Bulldogs’ defense was a bit more impressive in the second quarter. They held Carbon Hill to just 240 total yards, including a surprisingly bad first quarter. The aforementioned “Melon” score was actually a “point after” tally, as Carbon Hill did not score until about the halfway point of the second quarter.

The Bulldogs’ defense was also impressive in the third quarter. They held Carbon Hill to 83 yards in the red zone and two punts. This is not as impressive as it sounds, since the Pirates are averaging a little over 100 yards rushing on average. The Winfield defense has been impressive all season, and they were on display Friday.

The Bulldogs racked up the most points for a regular season game in Winston County, and they will be ready to keep the momentum going with a trip to the state tournament in Huntsville next week. The Bulldogs are now 2-1 in region play. They will also be preparing for a showdown with county rival Oneonta on Friday. They will have their hands full with the Buccaneers next week, but they will have plenty of experience to draw upon.

The Winfield Pirates have their sights set on beating Piedmont, and they will look to make this year the best of the bunch. A win against Piedmont will be the first for the Pirates since last season, and they will have the opportunity to avenge their loss to the Bulldogs last year.

Good Hope (4A, Region 5)

Despite going 1-1 in the 4A region, Good Hope is still a contender to qualify for the playoffs. After defeating the fourth-ranked Fayette County Tigers in a Region 5 game, the Raiders made history by making their first playoff appearance. This season, Good Hope will play Priceville, Mortimer Jordan, and Carbon Hill in the regular season. They will also compete in a region with strong teams such as Cullman, Jasper, Mortimer Jordan, Decatur Red Raiders, and Mortimer Jordan.
