THIS FRIDAY’S GAMES

(Seeds, records in para.)

NCHSAA 3AA East

(15) Chapel Hill (4-7) at (2) Southern Durham (9-2)

(11) Rocky Mount (8-3) at (6) Orange (10-1)

(10) Cardinal Gibbons at (7) Erwin Triton (9-2)

NCHSAA 3A East

(10) Northwood (8-3) at (7) Eastern Alamance (8-3)

Adjust your clocks: The 7 p.m. regular-season kickoffs are gone. The NCHSAA mandates that all playoff games must start at 7:30 p.m.

Final destination: The path to the eight state high school championship football games begins Friday night with the first round of games, and now teams know where their season will end if they are fortunate enough to reach a state championship game on Dec. 13 or 14. Kenan Stadium in Chapel Hill will have the 2AA finals on Friday, Dec. 13 at 7 p.m. and the 2A finals at 11 a.m. on Saturday, Dec. 14.

Carter-Finley Stadium in Raleigh will host three championship games on Dec. 14: the 3A at 11 a.m., the 4A at 3 p.m. and the 4AA at 7 p.m. BB&T Field in Winston-Salem hosts the 1A finals at 11 a.m., the 1AA at 3 p.m. and the 3AA final at 7 p.m.

Rematches: Football usually equals dollar signs for athletic department budgets, and while some people don’t like rematches of conference foes during the playoffs, it works at the ticket gate. And it usually helps teams with travel expenses. So, while Chapel Hill against Southern looks like a tough game for the Tigers, it should help fill up Spartan Stadium.

“We came out in the first half and got smacked in the face, and we didn’t like it. We can’t do that, and we paid for it.”
