Three area teams land in state playoffs for football

Andrew Canter throws a pass for Providence Grove, which is in the state playoffs again.

Eastern Randolph’s football team is the top seed in Class 1-A’s West Region for the second year in a row.

Randleman and Providence Grove are in the states in Class 2-A West Region.

Eastern Randolph (9-1), the Piedmont Athletic Conference champion, receives a first-round bye and will play Nov. 11 at home against the winner of this Friday night’s game between South Stokes (4-6) and Mountain Heritage (4-6).

In Class 2-A, Randleman (7-3) is the No. 10 seed with a home date Friday night against No. 23 seed Lincolnton (5-5). The winner faces either No. 7 seed Monroe or No. 26 seed North Stanly, which edged Randleman 40-34 in the regular season.

Providence Grove (7-3) is the No. 17 seed, so it has a game at No. 16 seed McMichael (7-3).  If the Patriots win, they could be heading to Rockingham County for the second week in a row to face top-seeded Reidsville, which takes on No. 32 seed Madison in the first round.
