FAYETTEVILLE, Arkansas — Junction City has dominated Class 2A for the last two years, and it faces some of its toughest — and most familiar — competition when it travels to Bearden on Friday night.

The two-time defending Class 2A state champion Dragons (5-0) have rolled through the early part of their season, outscoring opponents by an average of 59-7.

They'll face a fellow Class 2A-8 Conference rival in the Bears (5-0) on Friday, a team that's been one of the biggest threats to end Junction City's 32-game winning streak in recent years.

Bearden lost to the Dragons 13-8 last season, but it's bounced back in fine fashion this year — including a 22-8 win at Woodlawn last week.

The two teams have been ranked in the top two Class 2A spots of The Associated Press high school poll all season, and Friday night is likely to show why.
