Wayne County Post 11 was eliminated by Edenton Post 40 7-4 in game 5 of their Area One Eastern Division first-round playoff series Saturday night. Wayne was the two-time defending Eastern Division as well as Area One champion.
With Pitt County Post 39 losing in the first round, that means for the first time since Snow Hill won it in 2003 there will be an Eastern Division champion besides Pitt Post 39 or Wayne Post 11.
Also, with Garner out of the Western Division playoffs, that means for the first time since North Raleigh beat Snow Hill in 2003 there will be an Area One king besides Pitt Post 39, Wayne County or Garner.
The Western Division semifinals have No. 6 seed Clayton Post 71 taking on top-seeded Durham Post 7 and No. 2 Cary Post 67 meeting North Raleigh Post 297.
The semifinals begin Monday night.
