NEW BERN, Craven County - The second round of the state high school football playoffs will go down as another memorable night of action.
While a few more area teams were eliminated with losses, the bulk of our area schools advanced to play on Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving. It's a special time of year because you get to practice during the holidays and, if you win on Friday, you're in the East finals and one step closer to playing for a state championship.
Some of our area teams certainly looked state championship worthy. North Duplin, Tarboro, East Duplin, Havelock and South Central put up some impressive numbers in their wins. The next round for those teams will be even more competitive with games against some impressive opponents.
