East Meck tries to validate an upset

I'm at Myers Park this week to see if East Mecklenburg can validate its upset of Butler last week and set up a potential conference championship showdown at home with Independence next week.

The Eagles have won four straight and don't give up 10 points per game. Myers Park has lost four straight. On paper, it looks like the Eagles should be able to set up the Independence game and play for their first conference championship since 2001.

In 2001, the Eagles beat Butler 32-6 to secure their first Southwestern 4A title in nine years en route to a 13-2 season that ended with a loss to Independence in the N.C. 4A Western Regional championship.
