Pender head coach Tom Eanes will be John Rendleman's special guest on Sunday's Coach's Corner. The Coach's Corner will air at 6pm on Sunday. The Patriots will play defending state champion Albemarle on Friday night in Chapel Hill at 7:30pm in the 1-AA state title game. If you missed seeing our highlights of the game on Friday's newscast there will be even more on Sunday.

Sunday's Coach's Corner will also feature the East Bladen Eagles, but the season came to a close Friday night for East Bladen. After leading at halftime 26-0, Tarboro beat East Bladen 33-7. Tarboro will face Carver in the 2-A finals next weekend.
