MOREHEAD CITY — Plenty of high school first-round playoff football games were moved up to Thursday with the threat of inclement weather tonight.

Forecasters were calling for rain showers and chilly temperatures, causing the athletic directors to change the day of the contests.

Croatan hosted East Duplin on Thursday and East Carteret traveled to Princeton. See those stories in the Sunday issue.

Ayden-Grifton at Southwest Onslow, Western Alamance at Jacksonville and C.B. Aycock at Northside-Jacksonville were also moved to Thursday.
