State Playoffs Pairings
February 24, 2013By Denis Vass of Graham High School
The first round of the 2013 State 2-A Playoffs begin tomorrow evening. The boys team, fresh of their championship win in the conference tournament, parlayed that win into a #2 seed in the Mid-East bracket.
That means the Red Devils, if they continue to win, will have the first three games of the sectionals at home this week on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. They will host #15 seed East Bladen tomorrow evening, 15-10, and the #4 team out of the 3A/2A Waccamaw Conference. The Eagles have dropped their last three games. Tip off time is 6:00 pm, to allow East Bladen time to travel safely home tomorrow night.
The Lady Devils, who were the #3 seed in the Mid-State, garnered a #11 seed in the Mid-Eastern bracket, and will travel to Beulaville to take on the Panthers of East Duplin. The Panthers are the #6 seed, sporting a 21-6 overall record, and were the #2 team out of the East Central Conference. The Panthers have lost two of their last four games, both to Jacksonville Northside, the conference leaders.
Best of luck to both Red Devil teams tomorrow evening!!!
