State football playoffs, Week 2: Five games next week involving area teams with spot in state finals on line

Touchdown Friday

GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) — We’re down to five.

Five high schools in the WNCT coverage area made it to next Friday’s East final of the NC High School Athletic Association state football playoffs. The winner of next Friday’s games will advance to the state championships.

Northside, Tarboro, Washington, Havelock and New Bern each picked up victories on Friday. In the case of Havelock against Western Alamance and New Bern, they had to go on the road to pick up wins. Havelock will be home for the Class 3-A East final while New Bern will go to powerhouse Cardinal Gibbons for the 4-A final next Friday.

Northside will go to Northampton County for the Class 1-A East final while Tarboro, hosting Louisburg, and Washington, hosting St. Pauls, will be home.

The only game not played Friday was Northeastern’s contest with Eastern Randolph. It has been moved to Saturday at 1 p.m. at Hertford County High School due to the unrest in Elizabeth City after a Black man was killed in an officer-involved shooting.

So … we meet again: Tarboro, Edenton square off for fourth straight year in state playoffs

Put some ranch on it: Pam Pack hope to keep success going against Croatan

We’ll have updated scores here on Friday night. The final “Touchdown Friday” of the season will be this Friday at 11:15 p.m.
