Cherryville will be in the 1AA playoffs at Swain County (Bryson City). That's about a two-hour forty-five minute drive. It's off US74 (Exit 67).
Maiden fans will get to enjoy their team's game without leaving town. The Blue Devils will play at home against Fred T. Foard in a battle of two long-time rivals. Maiden is unbeaten, 11-0 and champs of the South Fork Conference, while the 8-3 Tigers finished third behind unbeaten Hibriten and Patton in the Northwestern 2A Conference. Some Catawba County fans were disappointed with the conference alignment that began this year. It put Foard and Bunker Hill in that conference while Maiden, Newton-Conover and Bandys were all placed in the South Fork Conference with the four Lincoln County teams and Lake Norman Charter. Maiden beat Foard 37-14 in the opening game of the season, but the Tigers have improved greatly since then.
Some Shelby fans are already looking forward to next Friday (November 17th). If the Golden Lions beat Newton-Conover this Friday, they'll travel to Belmont for a rematch with the South Point Red Raiders if the undefeated South Point team wins over 5-6 West Iredell as expected. Shelby will have the home field advantage, but Wes Beam's Red Devils are not to be taken lightly.
Kings Mountain beat Forestview 63-7 on October 27th. They'll host the Jaguars again this Friday in the 3A playoffs. The Mountaineers' only loss this season was in overtime to Shelby.
Mountain Island Charter and Thomas Jefferson Academy both have this week off. They got first round byes in the 1A playoffs and will begin playoff games next Friday (November 17th). Bessemer City got a bye in the 1AA playoffs and will host the winner of the Cherryville-Swain County game next week.
