After playing and making several mistakes in the Hooten Kickoff Classic 10 days ago, Magnolia will look play much better tonight on its home field. The Panthers (0-1) will host the Crossett Eagles (0-0) at 7 p.m. on Don Hubbard at Panther Stadium.
Magnolia has beaten Crossett seven times during the teams’ last 10 meetings. The Panthers have a three-game winning streak against the Eagles that include the 24-0 victory last year, 28-19 in 2017 and 21-7 in 2016.
Crossett slipped past Magnolia 23-20 in 2015, but the Panthers won 20-8 the previous year. The Eagles claimed back-to-back victories in 2012 and 2013, winning by scores of 32-31 and 51-26 respectively.
In 2011, the Panthers won 28-6; claimed a 35-7 victory in 2010; and captured a 14-7 win in 2009.
