The three Rowan County high school football teams in the state playoffs all won second round games on Friday night.
North Rowan (9-3), the No. 4 seed in the 1AA, was the only team at home. North fell behind Princeton, 14-0, but rallied to win, 26-14. The Cavaliers will travel to No. 1 seed Tarboro next week.
Salisbury (11-2) traveled to Washington, N.C., and dominated the home-standing Pam Pack, 32-12. The Hornets built a 32-0 halftime lead, and basically, coasted in the second half. Next week, Salisbury, the No. 7 seed, will head east again to battle No. 6 Hertford.
In Boiling Springs, N.C., West Rowan (9-4) upset the 3A’s No. 1 seeded Crest Chargers, 35-30. The Falcons, No. 9 seed, will travel to Charlotte Catholic, a 34-20 winner over Hunter Huss.
