The way I’m going to break this down is I’m not expecting any huge upsets to occur example would be Lake Norman Charter over West Lincoln or Mcdowell over Freedom. Remember that that’s why they play the game though.
Northwestern Foothills 2A
Hibriten- #1 automatic playoff berth
Bunker Hill- #2 automatic playoff berth
Draughn- close to bubble but last 2 wins should have them in and expected to win out
West Iredell- expected to go 1-1 right now at the bubble line 50-50 if they get in
Patton East Burke West Caldwell and Fred T Foard-OUT
South Fork 2A
North Lincoln-#1 automatic playoff berth
Newton-Conover-Can clinch #2 automatic playoff berth with win over Maiden and West Lincoln win over East Lincoln. Will be in atleast as a wildcard(owns tiebreaker over West Lincoln)
West Lincoln- Can force a 3 way tie for 2nd with Maiden and Newton-Conover if West Lincoln wins out Maiden wins out and East Lincoln win over Newton-Conover. Should be in atleast as a wildcard(owns tiebreaker over Maiden)
