In a rematch of last year's Sweet 16 matchup – in which the Golden Bulls beat the Chargers by 16 – Northwood learned from their mistakes and brought both the energy and passion to fuel them to victory and keep them unbeaten on the season.

Basketball: The Chatham Charter men lost a home playoff game to the Mountain Island Charter Raptors, 72-46, ending their season. It was a competitive game until the fourth quarter, when the Raptors went on a 16-0 run to close out the game and blow out the Knights in shocking fashion. Leading Chatham Charter was senior forward Trevor Golden (20 points) and sophomore forward Adam Harvey (15 points).

Basketball: The Chatham Charter women lost a road playoff game to the Robbinsville Black Knights, 78-43, knocking them out of the postseason in the first round. The Knights scored double-digit points in just one of four quarters and struggled mightily against the Black Knights, who came into the game on an 11-game winning streak. Leading the Knights was junior forward Alexis Baldwin (22 points, 10 rebounds) and senior center Morgan Lineberry (11 points).

Basketball: The Chatham Central men traveled over five hours to Murphy to defeat the Hiwassee Dam Eagles, 74-71, and advance to the second round of the NCHSAA Men's 1A basketball playoffs. Leading the Bears was senior center Michael Moore (23 points), junior guard Sawyer Elkins (12 points) and senior guard Preston Cox (10 points).

Thursday, Feb. 25

Basketball: The Northwood men earned a commanding road win over the D.H. Conley Vikings, 59-40, to advance to the third round of the NCHSAA Men's 3A playoffs.  The Chargers have won eight games in a row and improve to 12-2 with the victory. Leading Northwood were freshman guards Frederico Whitaker (16 points) and Drake Powell (15 points). The Chargers will travel to Fayetteville to face off against (1) Terry Sanford in the Elite 8 on Saturday at 6 p.m.

Basketball: The Northwood women overcame a 16-point third-quarter deficit to beat the Terry Sanford Bulldogs, 46-43, to advance to the third round of the NCHSAA Women's 3A playoffs. The Chargers outscored the Bulldogs 14-3 in the fourth quarter, and with Northwood trailing 43-41 with a little less than a minute remaining, junior guard McKenna Snively knocked down the biggest of her five three-pointers on the night, putting the Chargers ahead by one and essentially sealing the game. Leading Northwood was  Snively (18 points), and sophomore forward Te'Keyah Bland (eight points). The Chargers will face off in the Elite 8 against (16) Person at home on Saturday at 6 p.m.

Basketball: The Chatham Central men fell handily on the road to the Lincoln Charter Eagles, 78-48, eliminating them in the second round of the NCHSAA Men's 1A playoffs. The Bears finish the year with a 10-2 record.

Football: Northwood opened its season with a road rout of the Cedar Ridge Fighting Red Wolves, 42-0. The Chargers are now 1-0 on the shortened season.

Football: Jordan-Matthews opened their season with a narrow comeback loss to the T.W. Andrews Red Raiders at home, 34-26. The Jets went up 12-0 in the first half after a couple of blocked punts by senior WR/DB Jayden Davis led to points, but after a safety and a Red Raiders touchdown to make it 12-8 J-M at halftime, the momentum had shifted. Andrews would follow with two defensive touchdowns – including a bone-rattling hit and forced fumble on Jets' senior running back Jacquez Thompson – and a rushing score before the Jets could score again, going on a 26-0 run. Jordan-Matthews climbed back into it in the fourth quarter, primarily on the back of senior DE/TE Eral Jones, who forced a fumble in Andrews' territory that J-M recovered, caught a beautiful 21-yard touchdown pass from senior quarterback Xavier Woods and then recovered a botched snap on defense just three plays later and returned it 76 yards for a touchdown to tie the game at 26 apiece. However, Andrews would answer with a 34-yard touchdown pass on the second play of the next drive and got the two-point conversion, which acted as the game-winner. With the loss, the Jets fall to 0-1 on the season.

Lacrosse: Northwood men at Chapel Hill, 7 p.m.

Soccer: The Jordan-Matthews men won a dominant game over the Providence Grove Patriots, 7-0. Alexis Ibarra and Franco Basurto had two goals each as the win puts the Jets at 4-1 on the season, good for first place in the PAC 7 2A conference.

Soccer: The Northwood men lost on the road to the Chapel Hill Tigers, 3-1. The Chargers fall to 2-2 on the year.

Friday, Feb. 26

Football: Chatham Central opened its season with a home win over the Albemarle Bulldogs, 6-0. With the rainy weather being a major factor, neither team's offense could really gain any traction, aside from one Bears' drive in the second quarter that resulted in a 15-yard touchdown pass from senior quarterback Michael Moore to senior wide receiver Parker Crowley (and a failed two-point conversion attempt), which would be the only points of the game. The win puts Chatham Central at 1-0 on the season, matching their win total from last year.

Lacrosse: The Northwood men defeated the Cary Academy Chargers on the road, 17-10. Northwood improves to 3-2 on the season with the victory.

Soccer: The Woods Charter men lost in a shutout to the undefeated Carrboro Jaguars, 3-0. The Wolves, now 0-3 on the year, are 0-2 against Carrboro this season.

Saturday, Feb. 27

Basketball: Northwood men at (1) Terry Sanford, 6 p.m. (third round of playoffs)

Basketball: Northwood women vs. (16) Person, 6 p.m. (third round of playoffs)
