In soccer, North Lincoln evened its season record with a 3-1 win at Statesville on Tuesday. The 9-9-2 Knights have one game left to play: at home Wednesday (6 PM) against North Iredell. In other games scheduled for Wednesday, West Lincoln will host Lincolnton, Maiden will play at home against Newton-Conover, Foard will host North Gaston, Bandys will play at Bunker Hill, Cherryville will host Bessemer City. East Lincoln has finished its regular season. The Mustangs will get the top seed of any Western Foothills Conference team in the state 3A playoffs when pairings are announced Friday (Oct. 28th). The first round of the playoffs will be Monday at the home of the higher seeded team.  MaxPreps has East ranked #3 in the Western Region 3A and Hickory #2 but the Mustangs beat Hickory n their most recent head-to-head match (the first was a tie).  Asheboro is ranked #1 in the west.  East will certainly have a home match to start the playoffs.
