Last Friday, I penned a column talking about how big of a weekend we were looking at in the world of sports.
Now that it is all in the books, I have to say, it even exceeded my expectations.
It all started on Friday night with the local high school games.
I was a bit surprised to see the Malvern Leopards fall on the road to Mena in the manner in which they did, but that shock was dwarfed by a couple of other games.
Iâ€™d have to say the biggest surprise on Friday wasnâ€™t the fact that Poyen beat Magnet Cove, but how dominating the Indians were in that win.
