East Surry is very good, but Murphy is better than everyone else this year.

Maybe but East Surry is certainly good enough to win, especially if Murphy isn't on their A game.

One thing I hope not to see is Murphy, if gets a bit of a cushion, taking their foot off the accelerator: i.e. playing not to lose instead of staying aggressive. It happened last year in the Murphy - East Surry game in the 2nd half and that's what really cost them that game, not a miracle three pointer at the buzzer.

I thought the same about the 2nd half of yesterday's Cherokee game. Came out trying to run clock instead of just playing. Gave Cherokee too much hope of a comeback. Team was really out if rhythm because of it the entire half.

Murphy. I also thought they were better last year and that’s not taking away from ES winning. Those ES girls hung in and won. It was a great game.

MaxPreps has these 2 teams ranked as the top 2 teams in 1A now. I would agree with that. I think the winner of this game will win the state championship.

Congratulations Lady Bulldogs. Redemption for a game last year that I felt Murphy should have won handily

I was not there, but talking with a few people it sounds like East Surry/Murphy was a very good game until about the last 4 minutes of the 4th quarter. Congratulations to Murphy, they’ve been really close to knocking off the top NW1A teams for a few years now, but never could get over the hump. Looks like they finally did it last night.
