Soccer: The Jordan-Matthews women defeated the winless Trinity Bulldogs, 2-0, in overtime to improve to 5-3 on the season, including 5-1 in PAC 7 play.  The Jets scored both of their goals in the overtime period, one each from sophomores Michelle Parroquin Vallejo and Maricarmen Landa. Freshmen Janeyra Guerrero and  Iris Sibrian Zetino combined for the clean sheet win.

Soccer: The Northwood women defeated the Orange Panthers in a close one, 3-2, to improve to 5-4-1 on the year.

Soccer: The Woods Charter women snapped their three-game win streak with a shutout loss to the Raleigh Charter Phoenix, 5-0, to fall to 6-2 on the season. The Phoenix have handed the Wolves their only two losses this year.

The doubles team of sophomore Matteus Butler & Magrinat also won their match, 9-7.

Softball: The Chatham Central women earned their fifth-straight win against the Albemarle Bulldogs, 14-1, in a five-inning, mercy-rule victory. The Bears improve to 7-1 on the year.

Tennis: The Chatham Central men narrowly escaped their first loss of the season, winning 5-4 against the Union Pines Vikings. This is the first time in school history that the Bears have beaten the Vikings. Only two Bears won their singles matches: junior Colby Williamson (6-2, 6-1) and senior Pacen Dunn (6-2, 6-1). Chatham Central swept the three doubles matches, however, giving them the slight 5-4 advantage. The streaks of seniors Jayden Gilliland (20-0) and Preston Cox (17-0), who hadn't lost singles matches since their sophomore season, came to an end with three-set losses to Union Pines juniors Luke O'Donnell and Caleb Downing. As a team, Chatham Central is still undefeated on the season at 8-0. 

Wednesday, April 21

Soccer: The Jordan-Matthews women lost a close game to the Southwestern Randolph Cougars, 1-0, to drop their record to 5-4 on the season. The Jets had a few opportunities to score early, but never could create any sort of offensive identity, leading to the clean sheet loss. J-M is now counting on a win against the undefeated Wheatmore Warriors on Monday to potentially slide into the postseason. Read our recap here.

Soccer: The Northwood women defeated the Northern Durham Knights, 1-0, to improve to 6-4-1 on the season. The Chargers tied with the Knights in their only other matchup this year.

Softball: The Chatham Charter women brought their bats in their 10-run, four-inning victory over the NC Leadership Academy Falcons, 16-6. Leading the Knights were junior Taylor Jones (2-for-3, 3B, BB, 2 RBI), freshman Meah Brooks (1-for-4, 2 RBI), junior Alexis Hayes (1-for-2, 2B, 2 RBI) and senior Morgan Lineberry (1-for-1, 2B, 2 BB, 2 RBI). Chatham Charter is now 6-2 on the season.

Softball: The Chatham Central women trounced the Jordan-Matthews Jets, 14-1, in an inter-county rivalry match in Siler City. The Bears took an inning to adjust to the pitching, but took off after that, scoring 14 runs in the following four innings to earn a mercy-rule victory in just five innings. With the win, the Bears improve to 8-1 on the year, while the Jets fall to 5-7. Story to come.

Softball: The Northwood women lost an extra-inning shootout to the Northern Durham Knights, 17-16, in eight innings.

Friday, April 23

Football: The Northwood men lost their second-round playoff matchup with the undefeated Havelock Rams, 32-7, eliminating them from the NCHSAA 3A playoffs. The Chargers took an early lead on a blocked punt by senior safety/quarterback Cam Entrekin that he returned for a touchdown on the game's opening drive, putting them up 7-0. But they wouldn't score for the remainder of the game as the Rams' deadly offense began to heat up, scoring 32 unanswered points (19 in the second half) to end the Chargers' season and hopes at a state semifinal appearance. Story to come.

Soccer: The Woods Charter women lost handily to the unbeaten Southern Alamance Patriots, 5-1, dropping their record to 6-3 on the season.

Softball: The Chatham Charter women earned a close win over the Bethany Community School Wolves, 7-6, improving their record to 7-2 on the season. The Wolves took a 6-0 lead in the bottom of the second, but the Knights battled back, scoring seven unanswered runs to seal the victory. Leading the Knights were senior Morgan Lineberry (1-for-3, 3 RBI), sophomore Chelsie Hardister (3-for-4, 2B, 3B, 2 RBI) and junior Olivia Cheek (3-for-3).
