Springdale Har-Ber's reign in 7A is over following a 49-20 win by Bentonville, which sends the Tigers into next Friday's 7A state championship game against Fayetteville. The Bulldogs scores with 29 seconds left to overcome No. 2 seed Fort Smith Southside in Fort Smith in the other 7A semifinal.

El Dorado advanced to next Saturday's 6A final, but it won't be against No. 2 Pine Bluff, which was shocked at home by Texarkana, 42-28. No. 1 El Dorado managed to escape at home over Lake Hamilton 21-20.

Camden Fairview and Greenwood will meet next Saturday in Little Rock in the 5A final after convincing wins on Friday. Camden Fairview, returning to Watson Chapel where it escaped 36-35 in September, had an easier time with the Wildcats on Friday night, rolling 34-21. Greenwood was too much for previously unbeaten Batesville, winning 38-13.

The 4A-7 conference will have two teams in the Class 4A semifinals next week after both Pulaski Academy and Pulaski Robinson won easily on Friday night. No. 1 in 4A, Shiloh Christian, put away another 4A-7 team, Nashville, in another Friday quarterfinal.

No. 1 Glen Rose was shocked in 3A play by West Fork, while the 2A's No. 1 team, Bearden, survived Bigelow 21-14 to reach the semifinals.
