EAST BEND — With the NCHSAA playoffs heading to the fourth round, only Forbush soccer and Forbush softball remain in the tournament from the local squads. This past weekend, the Falcons battled their way to the Regional Championship. Results from the games are as follows.
Forbush vs. West Wilkes — Second-ranked Forbush Falcons beat West Wilkes, 4-0, in the 2A quarterfinals on Friday night. Marissa Lineberry had an outstanding game as she drove in two runs in the first inning, then hit a home run to seal the deal for the Falcons. Forbush will move on to the best-of-three semifinals where they will take on either West Lincoln or Brevard (who will play Monday night due to rain).
Forbush vs. East Lincoln — Due to a heavy down pour on Saturday night, the game has been moved to Monday night. Kick off is set for 6.
