Looking ahead at Round Three of the NCHSAA Playoffs for our Guilford County teams….We will look to add more to this post, as Saturday draws nearer….
Northwest Guilford(12-1) at Mallard Creek(13-0)
Rocky River(11-2) at Dudley(12-0)
Southeast Guilford(11-2) at Charlotte Catholic(11-2)
Weddington(11-2) at Northern Guilford(11-2)
Northside/Jacksonville(10-3) at High Point Andrews(11-1)
Guilford County has 5 of 6 teams left in the hunt, after Round Two of the playoffs….SEG beat the #1 seed and that could Dudley at home for the Holidays….Northern Guilford stays home for now, as the #7 seed Weddington, upset the #2 seed Asheville and that gives NG another home game this coming Friday night….Northwest put Richmond County away early and now the Vikings get at shot at the Mallard Creek Mavericks…North Davidson had Dudley tied up at 14-14 and then the Panthers reeled off 32 unanswered points to win the game going away, in the second half…..High Point Andrews may have been the toughest team of all on Friday night, as the Red Raiders gave up no ground whatsoever, in their victory over North Brunswick……

from the Mooresville Tribune at www.mooresvilletribune.com
from Adam Houston, “Mooresville stunned in the Second Round”:
Southeast Guilford’s run-heavy offense is not fancy at all. The Falcons’ longest run of the night was an 18-yard carry in the fourth quarter by C.J. McThay.
The No. 9 Falcons’ effectiveness on offense combined with a strong performance by the defense gave them a 30-22 upset of No. 1 Mooresville in the second round of the N.C. High School Athletic Association 4A West state playoffs.
McThay ran for a game-high 106 yards on 25 carries. Chakir Turner was second with 86 yards and a touchdown on 18 carries.
The Falcons play at No. 4 Charlotte Catholic (11-2) in next week’s third round. The loss snapped Mooresville’s 10-game winning streak, and the Blue Devils end the year 11-2.
