4-AA East had Page over Richmond County 49-33 and #6 Page(12-2) travels to #1 Middle Creek(14-0) next Friday night…Middle Creek topped Fuquay-Varina 42-7 on Friday night….Game Report on Page-Richmond County to follow this post, with Wyatt Smith reporting….

4-A West had Dudley defeating South Caldwell 42-6 and Dudley(13-1) will be home next Friday night vs. Charlotte Catholic(13-0)….Charlotte Catholic knocked off North Davidson 35-23 to get to Tarpley Stadium next Friday night….Dudley #1 seed and Charlotte Catholic seeded #3….Dudley and Charlotte Catholic met in the West Final back in 2013, when the Panthers held out Elijah Hood on 4th-and -2 from the 7-yard line and Hood came up a half-yard short and Dudley went on to win the 4-A Title over the Scots of Scotland County….

3-AA East had Northern Guilford on the road and the Nighthawks took care of business with their 28-10 victory over Terry Sanford….Next Friday night will be another business trip for the (10-4) Nighthawks, as they take their job on the road to Southern Durham to face the (11-3) Spartans…Southern Durham over Cleveland on Friday, 28-21…Northern the #13 seed in the East and Southern Durham #3….

Also we will have East Forsyth(14-0) hosting Mallard Creek(12-2) next Friday night in Kernersville…East Forsyth the #1 seed in the 4-AA West and Mallard Creek is the #6 seed…East Forsyth rolled over West Forsyth on Friday night 31-6 and Mallard Creek just blasted Cornelius Hough, 44-0….This game looks one of those “Game of the Year” candidates, much like that East Forsyth-Page game, with the Eagles winning 31-30 way back in September…The place should be packed for this one in Kernersville….

Hate how it ended for High Andrews tonight with the Red Raiders 14-13 loss to the Clinton Dark Horses…Same type of sad feeling for the Southern Guilford Storm, as they battled hard before falling 26-20 to the Eastern Alamance Eagles in OT…Tough ending too for the Morehead Panthers after they came so far in the playoffs before going down 35-31 to Rocky Mount, down in Rocky Mount….

Not a bad year for the Mid-State 3-A Conference though with three teams making to Round Three of the NCHSAA Playoffs and two teams, Eastern Alamance and Northern Guilford still in the hunt, as we head toward Round Four next week…

Similar setting for the Metro 4-A with two teams still looking for State Titles with Dudley and Page both holding high the Metro 4-A Shield, as they look to become State Champions from the Metro 4-A Conference in the same season/year….

One that really got my attention tonight was that win by Walkertown over East Surry 28-14 and that puts Walkertown in the Regional Final at (9-5) and the season comes to and end for East Surry at (13-1)…ES unbeaten in 2015, prior to this Friday night….

More coming here soon…..
