    The Scots will take on the No. 4 seed from the midwest region, Northwest Guilford, this Friday at 7:30 p.m. in Greensboro.
    The other six teams in Scotland’s region include No. 1 Richmond, No. 2 Butler, No. 3 Page, No. 6 West Forsyth, No. 7 East Forsyth and No. 8 Providence.
    Scotland (7-4) will have a tough opponent against the fourth seeded Vikings who finished the year with an 8-3 record.
    Northwest Guilford finished second in the Piedmont Triad Conference, with their only league loss coming at the hands of conference champion Ragsdale in a 24-21 battle on Oct. 15.
    The Vikings are currently ranked 46th in the state by MaxPreps.
    Northwest Guilford has allowed just 182 points this season, giving up 16.5 points a game.
    Offensively, the Vikings are led under center by quarterback Matthew Pawlowski. Pawlowski is average 115 yards through the air this season with 15 touchdowns and just two interceptions.
    The Vikings’ rushing attack has been a potent threat this season, as two running backs have rushed for over 8– yards on the ground in 2010.
    Running back Reid Baxter leads Northwest Guilford with 1,069 yards and 11 touchdowns. Teammate Dalton Dillon posted 808 rushing yards this year with six touchdowns.
