There is not a lot of history when it comes to Booneville and Greenland.

Booneville and Greenland will meet for just the fifth time Friday night at Jonathan Ramey Memorial Stadium.

The schools were members of the same conference in 2002 and 2003 and again in 2018 and 2019. Booneville won all four meetings.

The 2002 and 2019 games at Bearcat Stadium and the 2003 and 2018 games were played in Washington County.

In the 2018 game the Pirates successfully executed an onside kick and started the game with a double pass on the way to a 6-0 lead. The Bearcats went on to get five Carson Ray touchdowns and won 62-34.

In 2019 the final was 41-6, which was the lowest scoring game of the series for the Bearcats after scoring 56 (to 24) in 2002 when the teams combined for 923 offensive yards, 49 in 2003, and the 62 in 2018.

Greenland was not projected as a playoff team in 2022 after a two-win season in 2021 but the Pirates had matched that mark just three games into this season.

The Pirates are led by Lee Larkan who has 121 wins during his career with the Pirates, easily the most among 3A-1 coaches.
