Allen JD' s Catawba Valley Area 3rd Round Preview and Picks

2AA West 

8 North Lincoln at 4 Shelby

The Golden Lions look to make it back to the regionals  after starting out slow. The Knights of North Lincoln have been overshadowed by Bandys success but Coach Bazzle has the Knights back in the 3rd round for the 1st time since 2007 (where they fell to Mt  Pleasant. I like North Lincoln and what they are doing but I don't see them contenders til 2019

Bandys at Hibriten 

Hibriten is looking for their 30th straight win and  play in the 3rd round for the 4th straight  3-1 in those games (last 3rd round lose at kings mountain. Bandys has not played in the 3rd round since 2012 (lose to South Iredell) and hasn't reached the 4th round since 2004 (I was a sophomore and and a lose to Charotte Catholic) Bandys and  Hibriten play their 4th playoff matchup all at Hibriten and Hibriten didn't beat Bandys til 2007. Bandys leads the playoff series in those matches 2-1. Bandys has played close games all season but not the calabar like Hibriten. 1st quarter will be close but Hibriten pulls away after that.
