Tonight, the North Pulaski Falcons end their 2012 season as they travel to Sylvan Hills. The Falcons (1-8, 0-6 5A-Central) are looking for their first victory since the first game of the season when they defeated Little Rock Fair, 13-12.
Since that time, the Falcons have scored a total of 57 points over the last eight contests, including two shutouts. Meanwhile, opponents have amassed 289 points including four games with over 40 points.
Sylvan Hills (4-5, 3-3) has something to play for as they need a victory plus some help to make the playoffs. It’s the first time since 2009, that the Bears have been in this position. Sylvan Hills’ three conference losses have been to Jacksonville, Little Rock Christian and Pulaski Academy, the conference leader. Jacksonville and Little Rock Mills, who the Bears beat, also have playoff spots locked up. The fourth spot comes down to Little Rock Christian and Sylvan Hills. Basically, if Little Rock Christian wins they’ll go because of head to head competition.
The Bears lead the series, 7-0.
