Who has the easiest run? Who do we think will make some upsets? What are the best matchups in first round and down the road?

Predictions for first round East:

Jordan over Laney
PC over CH
Leesville over Wakefield - I think Leesville is better than their ranking
Cary over Knightdale
--
Broughton over WF
Apex over Holly Springs - Apex might be a sleeper
Enloe over Sanderson
Athens Drive over Millbrook - it's a tossup

Predictions for first round East:

Jordan over Laney - Never saw Laney play, but Jordan has sleeper talent
PC over CH - This one might end early
Wakefield over Leesville - I never bet on stopper/sweeper defenses
Cary over Knightdale - Well, I have to break my rule on stopper/sweeper
--
Broughton over WF - Nothing against WF
Apex over Holly Springs - Apex can lose to anybody, or beat anybody
Enloe over Sanderson - Could go to OT
Millbrook over Athens Drive - Thought Millbrook would be better this year

Predictions for first round East:

Jordan over Laney - This might be lopsided
PC over CH - This will be lopsided
Wakefield over Leesville - both have talented offense and weak defense, could be shootout
Cary over Knightdale - Every game is close with Cary, will pull it out
--
Broughton over WF - Too much talent for Broughton
Apex over Holly Springs - Apex has a lo of talent and underperformed
Enloe over Sanderson - Enloe keeper could spur a very deep run
Athens Drive over Millbrook- Don't bet against the Tri-6

Not that it matters when they end up playing Hoggard, but I'm curious, which teams have most of the NCFC Elite and Premier players? Or are they pretty spread out?

They are all spread out and I'm most familiar with the 01s. Jordan has a couple of Elite 01s. PC has 2-3 Premier 01s. GH has 2-3 Premier 01s. Not nearly as good as the Hammerheads.

Predictions for first round East:

Laney over Jordan - Jordan has been too up and down this year
PC over CH - Shouldn't be close
Leesville over Wakefield - Should be a good game
Cary over Knightdale - Cary is solid if unspectacular
--
WF over Broughton - My upset
Apex over Holly Springs - Apex is another solid team
Enloe over Sanderson - Score will be tight
Millbrook over Athens Drive - Millbrook has played better as of late

A lot of games will be close. Fun first round.

Predictions for first round East:

Jordan over Laney - Laney has lost 13 games to nobody
PC over CH - May end early. Wouldn't be surprised at all if PC wins it all.
Leesville over Wakefield - Toss up
Cary over Knightdale - Cary is solid
--
Broughton over WF - NBHS could make a run. Talent is there.
Apex over Holly Springs - Apex is another solid team
Enloe over Sanderson - Defensively Enloe is as good as they come
AD over Millbrook - My nod to the Tri-6. Pick 'em

Some great games last night in the East, includng two that went to PK's and one that was decided in the final 30 seconds. No blowouts. Gets better this weekend with the top teams joining in. Should be some close games.

Four games that should be tightly contested:
PC @ Ashley
Leesville @ AF
Apex @ New Bern
Enloe @ Pine Forest

Question for all. Less than 10 seconds to go and a free kick is awarded just outside the 18. Opposing team stands in front of the ball as time is expiring. What is the CR supposed to do?

I'm not sure anything. CR should move the defenders back 10 yards, and if they don't do it in a "timely" manner then CR can stop clock for that. But it's just unfortunate that there were only 10 seconds left.

Hindsight being 20/20, team with ball should play it back quickly and take kick from there.

Stop clock, yellow card for failure to respect distance, march off 10 yards, blow the whistle.

Had this exact thing happen last night. Foul occurred with about 15 seconds left before half. Defenders milling around ball as clock ticks away. With 3 seconds left CR requests that the clock stops. Free kick taken. Goal.

I assume you referring to Jordan/Laney end of regulation...

The Jordan/Laney play is what you are referring to. First, it is not a foul. But the ref should let the clock run down, if the jordan players do not move, we cant tell what happens after because the clip jumps. But the clock needs to be stopped and a player needs to be booked for FRD. If the clock was running then that goal should have counted.

If the kicked ball was touched by the Jordan player who runs into frame at the last second, that's interference (stop clock, YC etc.).

It's not clear if the Jordan players were actually standing in front of the ball, I mean afterall the ball goes in the net.

Edit: Nevermind, I'm guessing the ref disallowed the quick kick for some reason, looks like he was busy arguing with players.
