Dollarway, Booneville to play at UAPB


For the second straight week, Dollarway will host a state playoff game at Golden Lion Stadium.

The 4A semifinal game between Dollarway and Booneville will be contested at the Arkansas-Pine Bluff football stadium at 7 p.m. Friday. The winner will play either Warren or Valley View for the 4A championship.

The move to Golden Lion Stadium has been made to avoid poor field conditions with the threat of bad winter weather.

Another game relocation was announced Tuesday, as Junction City will play Carlisle on Friday in a 2A semifinal at Memorial Stadium in El Dorado. Junction City is considered the home team.

As of Tuesday evening, the Arkansas Activities Association has not rescheduled or relocated any other playoff or championship game in light of the bad weather forecasts. The 7A championship game (Cabot vs. Bentonville) is scheduled for Friday night, with the 5A (Batesville vs. Morrilton) and 6A (Pine Bluff vs. El Dorado) finals slated for Saturday. All championship games will be held at War Memorial Stadium in Little Rock.
