Friday, April 16

Football: Northwood used its strong rushing attack and nightmarish defense to earn a shutout first-round playoff win, 17-0, over the No. 7 West Carteret Patriots and advance to the second round of the NCHSAA 3A playoffs. In their first home playoff game in 11 years, the Chargers set the tone early with a 10-play scoring drive on their opening possession — ending with a 1-yard touchdown on a keeper by senior quarterback Cam Entrekin — followed by a 48-yard field goal by senior kicker Aidan Laros to take an early 10-0 lead. Later in the half, with the Patriots driving and in Northwood territory, senior linebacker Will Lake scooped up a fumble and returned it 75 yards to the house, making it a 17-0 game and essentially putting the nail in the West Carteret coffin. Leading the Chargers were junior running back Jalen Paige (16 carries, 85 yards) and Lake, who had the fumble return for a touchdown and a crucial interception in the second half. They'll face off against the undefeated, third-seeded Havelock Rams at home on Friday at 6:30 p.m.
