More Touchdown Friday

GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) — Saturday was a very good day for the high school basketball teams from Eastern North Carolina still in the state playoffs. That includes defending state champions Farmville Central.

Farmville Central’s girls, the defending co-state champions, remained unbeaten with a 71-54 win at Randleman on Saturday. The Jaguars (13-0), the No. 9 seed, will now travel to No. 2 seed McMichael (7-8), which rallied at home to beat Croatan, 50-41.

Farmville and McMichael will play Tuesday (game time has not been announced) with the winner advancing to the state championships next Saturday.

Croatan finished the season 13-3.

Farmville Central’s boys are using their No. 9 seed in the state playoffs as motivation, too. The two-time defending state champs were on the road again and rolled past host Reidsville, 83-55.

The good news is the Jaguars (13-0) will now host a state playoff game for the first time in the playoffs as No. 15 Northeastern upset No. 3 seed Washington, 79-67. Farmville Central and Northeastern will play Tuesday at a time that hasn’t been determined. The winner advances to Saturday’s state championships.

West Carteret’s boys are in the 3-A East final after winning at home against Northern Guilford, 76-58. The Patriots (11-2), the No. 6 seed, will host No. 13 seed Northwood in Tuesday’s East final. Northwood beat top seed Terry Sanford, 43-41.

Northside’s girls went to East Carteret and won, 51-45. At one point, the Mariners only had two players on the court because the rest had fouled out.

Northside will go to Princeton, which beat Southside, on Tuesday.

Riverside’s boys are also in the state final four after beating East Carteret. They will go to Wilson Prep on Tuesday.
