    i expect Terry Sanford to go a long way they got an awesome draw. And the Botom half of the bracket is ridiculous, for once fayetteville area teams shouldnt run into raleigh teams as in the past in the 2nd round. Oh and Randy, big Win for Fulham eh?

  2. Randy Capps Says:

    Huge win for Fulham. Not sure why Benitez took off Torres, but once he did, Liverpool was always second-best.

    As for the draw, it was nice to see the state level out the bracket a bit. Jordan drew Wakefield, and there is a bit of complaining about it on the board.

    They’ll be OK…

    Come on Randy – it’s the playoffs and we need some more meat here! For starters Hoke vs Cape Fear playing each other for the 3rd year in a row as a first rounder (the first 2 matches were split)- bet that has not happened anywhere else. And how about Terry Sanfords luck – drawing 71st vs. Wakefield – another Wild Card from Raleigh that would be a tough match for any team, anywhere. And what about Pine Forest looking for an upset against the tough Pinecrest team (they almost pulled it off last year in the second round). And Jack Britt facing an interesting E. Wake team featuring a special player, who some say will be on the national team in a few years, named Mike Payne.

    Give us more, please!
