For the fifth time in as many seasons, the East Surry Cardinals are grateful to be in the Elite Eight.

East Surry, the champions of the Foothills 2A Conference, will face the Blue Devils of Maiden High School, champions of the Catawba Valley Athletic Conference.

East Surry and Maiden have only faced each other twice before. Like last week’s opponent Monroe, East’s two meetings against Maiden were held in the 1AA State Playoffs and were held in consecutive seasons. The Blue Devils are 2-0 against the Cardinals.

The first match between East Surry and Maiden was played under oddly similar circumstances to this year’s meeting. In 2002, the No. 2 Cardinals hosted the No. 3 Devils in the Elite Eight of the 1AA State Playoffs. Maiden won this match 31-6.

The following year, East Surry was the No.7 seed and Maiden was the No.10 seed. The Blue Devils were once again victorious, this time by a score of 21-12.

Maiden and East Surry have only one common opponent this season: the Newton-Conover Red Devils. Maiden beat Newton-Conover 25-7 in the regular season finale, then the Cards defeated the Red Devils 30-6 a week later in the first round of the 2A State Playoffs.

The Maiden-East Surry winner will face the winner of No.1 Shelby (12-1) and No.4 Reidsville (12-0) in the 2A West regional final.
