LAURINBURG — The Fighting Scots will play a familiar foe in the second round of the North Carolina High School Athletic Association’s 4A playoffs — Seventy-First.

The two Sandhills Athletic Conference teams met last month in a battle for conference supremacy. The Fighting Scots plucked the Falcons wings, to earn the 56-35 win and eventually become the inaugural SAC-8 champions. Seventy-First returns to Pate Stadium on Friday for a re-match after a 10-point win, 23-13, over Jordan in the first round.

The only other remaining SAC-8 team is Pinecrest in the 4AA classification. The No. 6 Patriots bested No. 11 Athens Drive in Southern Pines, 50-19. Pinecrest now heads to No. 3 Garner Magnet.

The three other teams that advanced to the playoffs — Richmond, Jack Britt and Purnell Swett — saw their seasons come to an end. In the 4AA West, No. 8 Richmond lost by four points, 27-23 to No. 9 North Mecklenburg. In the 4AA East, No. 8 Jack Britt lost to No. 9 Millbrook, 27-17. In the 4A East, No. 11 Purnell lost to No. 6 Heritage, 34-13 on the road.

The second round of the North Carolina High School Athletic Association takes place Nov. 17 at 7:30 p.m.
