One of the best games of the year was played Friday night at West Lincoln. The Rebels won 21-18, but Lincolnton gave them all they could handle. The Wolves scored first and led 6-0 at the end of the first period. West scored and took the lead 7-6. Lincolnton then scored again and led 12-7 at the half. The Rebels got the next TD and took a 14-12 lead, but LHS answered to lead 18-14. West Lincoln got the winning touchdown with just over three minutes left in the game. Lincolnton still had a chance when they made it into West Lincoln territory with two minutes left, but the Rebels defense stopped them and West ran out the clock.

Lincolnton started the season with four losses, then won four games before losing to Maiden and West Lincoln; and even with a 4-6 record, LHS made the playoffs! They'll play at Monroe next Friday. Newton-Conover, 3-6, also made it. They'll play at East Surry.

Maiden has a right to be upset. The 10-0 Blue Devils were seeded #3 behind Shelby and East Surry. West Lincoln got the #14 seed and will play at home against Surry Central. Bunker Hill was seeded #11. They'll host East Davidson. Burns was seeded #12 and will host McMichael. East Gaston was seeded 24th and will play at Community School of Davidson.

In the 3A playoffs, North Lincoln was seeded #13 and will host West Rowan. East Lincoln was seeded #18 and will play at Oak Grove.

Statesville got the #2 seed and will host Enka. Crest was seeded 4th and will host Jesse Carson. Kings Mtn. was seeded 11th and will host Franklin. South Point was seeded #16 and will host Eastern Guilford. Hickory was seeded 21st and will play at Smoky Mountain. Forestview was seeded 25th and will play at Erwin. Stuart Cramer was seeded #27 and will play at West Charlotte.

Cherryville (3-7) made the 1A playoffs. The Ironmen will visit Cherokee next Friday. Thomas Jefferson got the #5 seed and will host Avery County. Bessemer City was seeded 21st and will visit West Rowan. Despite not having won a game in nine tries this season, Highland Tech was seeded #27 and will play at Thomasville. There are so few 1A teams that the top five teams in the west all got first round byes.
