So far from what I can tell some conferences have looked better than others in the playoffs such as-
MAC- The MAC was impressive in the first round of the playoffs going 3-1 with Reynolds giving Weddington a much tougher game than expected. Erwin will have a chance to pull off the upset over North Henderson, North Buncombe and McDowell both play very good teams and will need great efforts
WNCAC- The WNCAC conference disappointed week 1 with only N. Henderson advancing.. I thought the conference may be weak this season with Pisgah and Smoky Mtn down but I was surprised by the results
NW3A/4A- The northwestern 3A/4A went 3-3 on the first day of the playoffs. Hibriten was upset and Foard pulled off a shocker. Freedom and Hickory both have a great chance at advancing and Foard will look to pull off another upset vs fellow conference foe Hickory
NPC- The NPC went 1-4 on the first day. Only Lake Norman survived a rough day for the conference as Alexander Central and Statesville were upset. Lake Norman has a tough game vs Greensboro Page next.
SMAC- The SMAC went 4-1 on the first day of the playoffs with higher seeds East Rutherford, Shelby, and Kings Mountain advancing as well as Crest pulling off the big upset. Draughn was the only conference team to lose. This is a tough conference, basketball or football. East Rutherford is a state title contender and the rest of the conference wont be easy outs.
WHC- The Western Highlands Conference went 2-3 on the first day of the playoffs with Avery and Owen advancing. Hendersonville, Mtn Heritage and Mitchell fell in the first round. The conference was top heavy this season and both teams left have a chance at advancing another game
SMC- The Big smoky mountain conference went 4-3 on the first day of the playoffs. Hayesville pulled off an upset with higher seeds Cherokee, Swain and Rosman all picking up wins. The three teams that lost were all at or near the bottom of the conference. A decent showing.
