The battle for the Region 7-A Subregion B title will be broadcast live on WJBF 6.2 this Friday from Lincolnton.
This will be the fifth Lincoln County game broadcast live by the Augusta station since September 2011. This is the third time Aquinas was the opponent. The Devils won in Augusta in 2012, and Aquinas won at Buddy Bufford Field last year. That win was the first for the Irish over our Devils since 1972.
Aquinas has not lost since the 2012 playoffs, and currently rides a 22-game winning streak.
The Red Devils moved up to 12th in the Class A Public standings after their win over GMC last Friday. The top 16 make the playoffs.
This Friday's game between LCHS and Aquinas will decide the top two spots in 7-A subregion B. The winner will play the top team from subregion A, which looks to be Tattnall Square from Macon. If Stratford Academy defeats Wilkinson County this Friday, Stratford (from Macon) will be the #2 team in subregion A. A Wilkinson win could force a 3-way tie with Stratford and First Presbyterian Day.
The final week of the regular season will see teams from each subregion match up against the same-placed team from the other subregion.
