Prep football: North Rowan-Chatham Central preview

Time: 7:30 p.m.
Records: Chatham Central 1-7, 0-4 YVC; North Rowan 3-5, 3-1 YVC
Series: As has often been the case this season, North is meeting one of its new 1A rivals for the first time ever
Last week: Chatham Central, a school located in Bear Creek, fell to South Davidson 12-7; North Rowan gave a good account of itself in a 21-6 loss to second-ranked Albemarle
Next week: North Rowan is at West Montgomery; Chatham Central is home against East Montgomery
Game notes: North’s losing streak figures to end at one game against Chatham Central, provided the Bears can locate Spencer. According to Mapquest, they’ll be making a circuitous journey of 83 miles (or 1 hour, 24 minutes by car) to reach Eagle Stadium.
As the crow flies, the journey is much shorter, but there doesn’t appear to be anything close to a direct route.
Chatham Central is 22-93 this century, and its only win of 2009 was against Wake Christian Academy. The Bears have allowed more than 40 points four times this year and have scored more than seven points only once against public schools.
Chatham Central and North have two common opponents.Chatham lost 35-7 to South Stanly, a team North beat. The Bears also lost 48-0 to Albemarle.
North made strides last week on the road. The setback all but knocked the Cavs out of the title chase, but a second-place showdown looms at West Montgomery.
Quarterback Jesse Rudisell was hurt against Albemarle, but linemen Emilio Locklear, Cedric Donaldson and Keith Reid should be able to open holes for Malik Jones and Cameron Mallett no matter who takes the snaps. ó Mike London
