* Southern Wayne at Northern Nash

* Lakewood at Rosewood

* Ayden-Grifton at Greene Central

* James Kenan at Jones Senior

Nine of 10 varsity contests slated for Friday were moved to Thursday.

Spring Creek is the guest of Coastal Plains member Lejeune and kickoff is 6:30 p.m. Midway travels to Princeton, while James Kenan plays host to Jones Senior. Those games begin at 7 p.m.

Here are the remaining games with 7:30 p.m. starts:

* Lakewood at North Duplin

* Goldsboro at Eastern Wayne

* Northern Nash at Southern Wayne

* Rosewood at Wake Christian

* North Lenoir at West Montgomery
