Looking Back at Round One of the NCHSAA Basketball Playoffs for our Guilford County Schools:Boy, it was a “Tough Tuesday for our Teams”
We had five boys teams going in with Page, Grimsley, Eastern Guilford, Northern Guilford and Dudley….
We had six girls teams going in, with Northwest Guilford, Ragsdale, Dudley, Northern Guilford, Southeast Guilford, and Southwest Guilford…..
We ended up with just three Winners on this “Tough Tuesday”…Definitely a “Tough Tuesday for our Teams”…..The three Winners, and our only remaining teams, are the Page and Northern Guilford boys, and the Southeast Guilford girls….
Looking ahead to Round Two on Thursday we will have, the # 11 seeded Southeast Guilford girls(7-5) at #3 Eastern Alamance(12-0), in the Girls 3-A East bracket….7pm start on Thursday, in Mebane….The time could change, if the two teams get together and decide to begin at an earlier time…Both have to be in agreement…
In the boys 3-A East bracket, the #10 seeded Northern Guilford Nighthawks(15-0) will have a home game, with ‘Hawks hosting #15 Fayetteville Westover(11-2)…Scheduled start time for now is 7pm, on Spencer-Dixon Road…
For the boys 4-A West bracket, we see the local Guilford County Page Pirates, a #5 seed and Page is (13-2), but the Pirates will be hitting I-40 West and dipping over into Forsyth County, to face the #4 WS Reynolds Demons(12-1)….The only loss of the season for Reynolds, was the Demons’ 57-56 defeat, at the hands of the team Page just eliminated from the playoffs on Tuesday night, and that would be the Glenn Bobcats…And Page disposed of/finished off the Bobcats, 53-42, while again Glenn beat Reynolds back on January 22, 57-56….
And then there were three…Three teams left/remaining from Guilford County, as we hit Round Two of the NCHSAA Basketball Playoffs, on Thursday evening/night….
