Charleston Defeats Hackett to Move to 7-0 on the Season; Hosts Lincoln Tonight

Arkansas River Valley Business Directory

The Charleston Tigers juggernaut rolled into Hackett last Friday, and just as had been for the previous six weeks of the high school football season, the Tigers rolled to a big victory over the Hornets. The win solidified the Tigers’ lead in the 3A-1 conference, putting them firmly in control for the conference championship. Charleston now has a two game lead over second place Hackett with just three games to be played. The Tigers have games remaining with Lincoln, West Fork, and Lavaca. Barring an upset or extraordinary event, Charleston should finish the season undefeated and advancing to the state playoffs as a number one seed.

Charleston (7-0, 4-0) have outscored their opponents by a combined score of 298 – 93. A Charleston defense that was a little of a concern to head coach Ricky May just before the start of the season has allowed just 93 points in seven games and has two shutouts on the season. The explosive Tigers offense has scored an average of 42.57 points per game while their defensive teammates have allowed just 13.29 points per game. And perhaps most impressive is that the point totals and averages include three non-conference games against potential playoff teams from the tough 4A-4 conference (Ozark, Dardanelle, and Pottsville). Charleston is now one of ten remaining Class 3A teams with an undefeated record. Two of those teams will play tonight in Paris when the Eagles host Perryville.

Game time tonight at Alumni Field is 7 p.m. and it should be another great week weather-wise for high school football team. This Charleston team is special, and perhaps one of the more exciting aspects of this team is their youth. The Tigers will return many of this year’s players, including their outstanding quarterback, Brandon Scott, next year. The Charleston football program is deep with talented players and Tigers fans have a lot to be excited about!

So, bring a jacket and head out to the stadium tonight! Root your Tigers on to 8-0!
