Reeds Spring Wins Another Backyard Battle, Branson, Forsyth Lose Big, Other Results

Friday Night High School Football included the renewal of the Backyard Battle between Hollister and Reeds Spring.

The Wolves overcame a sloppy first half to down the Tigers 42-12 in Reeds Spring. Hollister hung in during the first half and got the games first score to lead, only to see Reeds Spring answer with a touchdown. The two teams exchanged scores again with the Wolves making two conversions to lead at halftime 15-12. The second half was all Wolves as they scored 33 unanswered points to put away the game and secure the Backyard Trophy for another season. 

In other games, it was a long night for both Branson and Forsyth as they lost by big margins, the Pirates at home to Nixa 41-3 and the Panthers at Fair Grove 56-13 in a match-up of unbeaten teams.
