The quest for state titles continues tonight for a pair of Pitt County softball squads, and two local soccer teams will resume their collective chases for glory on Wednesday.

South Central softball is the lone host team in this week’s third-round action. Following a first-round bye, the Falcons (21-1) narrowly edged out Lumberton, 6-5, to set up tonight’s showdown against No. 10 Wake Forest.

In 3-A, Conley will see how far it can carry its underdog success when the Vikings (16-8) take on C.B. Aycock on the road in Pikeville. Already, 19th seed DHC has defied the odds with wins against No. 14 West Johnston and No. 3 Cape Fear on the road.

In 3-A soccer, D.H. Conley and J.H. Rose could be a collision course to meet for a third time this season, and for much higher stakes this time. The two clubs both won their second-round games on Saturday, vaulting both into the round of 16 on Wednesday.

Still yet to allow a goal in the state playoffs thanks to a 5-0 shelling of Lee County and a narrow 1-0 win over Cedar Ridge, the sixth-seeded Vikings (14-4-4) take on third seed Terry Sanford. No. 17 Rose won a pair of 2-1 triumphs against Southern Lee and Southern Alamance, and the Rampants (14-6-2) will face eighth seed Clayton.
