We didn’t need to get this late in the season to realize who the best teams are in the Coastal 10 and Northeastern Coastal conferences: Plymouth (Coastal) and Northeastern (NCC).
Well, not so fast Eagles. Hertford County is also unbeaten in the league, and the teams’ matchup this Friday in Elizabeth City is essentially for the title. An NHS win pretty well wraps up a third-straight conference crown. Obviously Hertford County is on an uphill climb to be Hertford County again, and a victory against the Eagles would be a big step forward for second-year coach Terrance Saxby.
As far as the Vikings, give them the trophy already.
