GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) — We know three things about next Friday’s Eastern Regional finals of the state high school football playoffs.

Tarboro is home. Wallace-Rose Hill is still alive and the Big Carolina Conference will represent for the first time in the Class 3-A state final as J.H. Rose and Jacksonville each won their respective playoff games.

Next Friday will certainly be interesting as Tarboro, the defending Class 1-AA state champs, will host red-hot Pender County. The Patriots knocked off defending Class 1-A East champion Northside on Friday.

In 2-A play, Wallace-Rose Hill continued its incredible season by knocking off Northeastern on the road. The win comes a week after the Bulldogs beat Duplin County rival East Duplin.

In 3-A play, Jacksonville and J.H. Rose will square off for the East Regional title. The Big Carolina Conference foes squared off on Sept. 28 with Rose winning 28-21.
