It must be the 'game of the week.'  West Lincoln will play at Maiden Friday night in the second round of the NCHSAA 2A football playoffs.  The unbeaten Blue Devils won a close regular season game at West, and the 14th seeded Rebels are anxious for a rematch.  The Blue Devils were seeded #3 for the playoffs.  

The winner of the West @ Maiden game will get the winner of the Bunker Hill @ Salisbury Friday night game next week.  Blue Devil fans would like revenge for their lopsided 52-12 loss to Salisbury in the Spring.  The Hornets went on to win the state championship.  

The importance of this game is evident by the media coverage it will have.  If you can't make it there, you can hear the game on WLON Radio (1050AM, 107.5 FM) or online at or on WNNC Radio (1230AM, 101.3 FM) or online at The game will also be live-streamed on

In other 3A action, South Point's Red Raiders, the 16th seed in the west, will travel to Canton to play #1 seed Pisgah.  The winner of that game will play the winner of the game in Monroe between Gastonia Forestview, the 25th seed, and #9 seed Parkwood.

Hickory will try for another upset as the 21st seeded Red Tornadoes visit 5th seeded North Davidson in Lexington Friday night.  #4 seed Crest will host 20th seeded West Rowan.  The winner of that game and the Hickory game will play next week.
