The duo of Wanless and sophomore Cedric Schwartz also won their doubles match (9-7). The Knights are 0-8 on the year.

Wednesday, April 7

Soccer: The Woods Charter women earned another conference win over the Cornerstone Charter Academy Cardinals, 4-1. After starting off sluggish — aside from a goal by freshman Leyla Noronha about a minute into the game — the Wolves came out firing in the second half, adding three more goals before the Cardinals scored one in the final minute. Leading Woods Charter were senior Anna Mitchell (2 goals), Noronha (1 goal) and sophomore Chloe Richard (1 goal). The Wolves are now 4-1 on the year.

Thursday, April 8

Football: Chatham Central lost a shootout against the North Moore Mustangs, 77-50, in their final game of the season, finishing with a 1-3 record. In his last game in Bear Creek, senior quarterback Michael Moore completed 25 of his 34 passes for 404 yards and 6 touchdowns, with senior receivers Tyler Oldham (5 receptions for 175 yards and 3 touchdowns) and Parker Crowley (11 receptions for 171 yards and 3 touchdowns) getting the brunt of the passing work. Junior running back Malachi Moore led Chatham Central on the ground with 6 carries for 40 yards, but it wasn't enough to compete with the rushing attack of the Mustangs, who had a duo of backs that was virtually unstoppable — junior Justis Dorsett (18 carries for 367 yards and 8 touchdowns) and senior Jaleak Horne (11 carries for 151 yards and 3 touchdowns).

Football: Jordan-Matthews lost a lopsided game to the Providence Grove Patriots, 48-8, in their final game of the season, keeping them winless on the year at 0-7.

Football: Northwood overcame a slow start to earn a crucial victory over the Northern Durham Knights, 44-12, to improve to 5-2 on the season (5-1 in the Big Eight 3A conference). The first half was fairly low scoring, the Chargers leading 14-12, with a whopping 6 combined turnovers amongst the two teams. After the break, however, Northwood looked refreshed as its defense continued to dominate and its rushing attack got going, scoring 30 unanswered points to trounce their conference foe late in the game. Leading the Chargers was senior jack-of-all-trades Aidan Laros, who had 80 yards and 3 touchdowns on 11 carries, a 47-yard field goal in the third quarter and a first-half interception on Knights' quarterback Kyle Barnhill. Northwood senior safety/quarterback Cam Entrekin also reeled in 2 interceptions of his own in the first half, including a 70-plus-yard pick-6 on the game's first possession. After finishing as conference co-champs with Chapel Hill and Southern Durham, Northwood will play in the NCHSAA 3A playoffs next week.

Soccer: The Northwood women won a close overtime game against the Cedar Ridge Fighting Red Wolves, 2-0, scoring both goals in the additional period to improve their record to 4-3-1 on the season. Scoring for the Chargers were junior Monique Diaz and sophomore Sydney Cox, each with 1 goal.

Softball: The Northwood women completed a six-inning, mercy-rule blowout of the East Chapel Hill Wildcats, 16-6, to improve their record to 4-2 on the year. The Chargers racked up 24 hits on the day, led by senior Caroline Dorshimer (4-for-4, 2 2Bs, 5 RBI), senior Shakhai Mole (2-for-2, 1 2B, 3 RBI) and senior Erika Seils (1-for-2, 1 2B, 3 RBI). Sophomore pitcher Susanna Lee also struck out 11 batters (6.0 IP, 7 hits, 4 ER, 11 K).

Friday, April 9

Softball: The Chatham Charter women earned their second-straight blowout win over the Carrboro Jaguars, this time in a 17-run shutout, 17-0, to improve to 4-1 on the season.

Softball: The Northwood women lost handily to the Cedar Ridge Fighting Red Wolves, 14-2, in just five innings, dropping their record to 4-3 on the season. After a manageable start — tied 1-1 headed into the bottom of the third inning — Cedar Ridge scored 10 combined runs in the third and fourth to sink any hope the Chargers had at a season sweep of their conference rival.
