Here are scores and schedules for Chatham County high school athletics from Monday, March 29 to April 4. This story will be updated throughout the week.

Monday, March 29

Soccer: The Northwood women tied against the Northern Knights, 3-3, after both teams scored one goal each in the overtime period. Leading the Chargers were freshman Ava Arias (2 goals) and junior Sydney Arnott (1 goal). Northwood is now 1-2-1 on the season.

Soccer: (POSTPONED due to field conditions)  Jordan-Matthews women at Southwestern Randolph, 6 p.m.

Softball: The Chatham Central women lost their first game of the season against the  South Stanly Rowdy Rebel Bulls, 2-1, dropping the Bears' record to 2-1.

Softball: The Jordan-Matthews women lost to the Eastern Randolph Wildcats, 10-0 in five innings, to remain winless on the season (0-2). Wildcats' pitchers Savannah Beaver (4.0 IP, 9 Ks)  and Addie Flinchum (1.0 IP, 3 Ks) combined for the five-inning no-hitter.

Tennis: The Chatham Central men swept the North Rowan Cavaliers, 9-0, to remain perfect on the season. Winning their singles matches were senior Jayden Gilliland (6-0, 6-0), junior Colby Williamson (6-0, 6-0), freshman Jacob Gilliland (6-1, 6-2), senior Caleb Webster (6-0, 6-1), senior Pacen Dunn (6-0, 6-1) and senior Sidney Cheek (DNF). The Bears also won three doubles matches.

Tennis: The Chatham Charter men got swept by the Southern Wake Academy Lions, 9-0, for their sixth straight loss. The Knights are still winless on the season at 0-6.

Tuesday, March 30

Soccer: The Northwood women fell victim to another close loss, this time against the undefeated East Chapel Hill Wildcats, 2-0, dropping the Chargers' record to 1-3-1 on the season. Northwood continued to knock on the door in the first half and had a couple of great chances to score, but could never quite put it together before a struggle-filled second half put them away.

Soccer: The Jordan-Matthews women lost big in their battle with the Wheatmore Warriors, 11-2,  off of the backs of Wheatmore freshman Ellie Garrison and sophomore Summer Bowman, who each scored 5 goals.

Softball: The Chatham Central women earned a blowout, shutout victory over the North Rowan Cavaliers, 12-0, in just five innings, improving their record to 3-1 on the season. After a modest first inning, the Bears blew the game wide open in the second and third, scoring 11 runs combined between them as their offense was too powerful for the Cavaliers' error-filled defense. By the middle of the fifth, down by 12 runs, North Rowan still hadn't scored and the mercy rule went into effect and ended the contest. Leading the Bears was junior Gracie Gaines (2-for-4, 4 RBI, 2 extra-base hits) and junior pitcher Taylor Poe (3.0 IP, 1 H, 0 ER, 5 Ks).

Softball: The Northwood women fell to the unbeaten Northern Knights, 13-2, to drop to 2-2 on the season.

Football: Jordan-Matthews lost to the Wheatmore Warriors at home, 42-6, dropping the Jets' record to 0-6 on the season.

Football: Northwood fell to the undefeated Panther Creek Catamounts in a lopsided game, 30-10, as the Chargers struggled to move the ball down the field throughout the night. A few big plays by the Catamounts — TD passes of 43, 45 and 82 yards — were the deciding factors. With the loss, Northwood falls to 3-2 on the year.

Tennis: The Chatham Central men narrowly defeated the Northwood Chargers, 5-4, thanks to singles victories by senior Jayden Gilliland (7-5, 4-6, 10-6), senior Preston Cox (6-1, 6-1) and senior Caleb Webster (7-6 (10-8), 6-3). The Bears also earned doubles victories by the teams of Gilliland & Cox (8-4) and junior Colby Williamson & freshman Jacob Gilliland (8-1).  Northwood's singles wins came from sophomore Matteus Butler (6-2, 4-6, 10-7), freshman Felton Burleigh (1-6, 7-6 (7-2), 10-4) and freshman Walker Magrinat (6-1, 7-5). The Bears improved their record to 5-0 on the year, while the Chargers fall to 3-3.
