Northeastern 21, Cedar Ridge 7

ELIZABETH CITY - Friday night in the 2-AA Eastern Region championship game, Cedar Ridge ran into the same problems the previous 12 Northeastern opponents faced and the Red Wolves saw their season end by a 21-7 score.

PITTSBORO - In the third round of the NCHSAA 2-A playoffs, Northwood found out just how hard it is to beat a good team twice.

After beating conference foe Cedar Ridge at home in the regular-season finale to capture the conference crown, Northwood couldn’t find the same formula on Friday night, falling 28-20 to the Red Wolves.

HILLSBOROUGH -  Cedar Ridge quarterback Cam Pappas told his team not to worry. Even though Randleman High had just retaken the lead with 1:38 left in the game, Pappas said nobody panicked.

Instead, the Red Wolves calmly drove 70 yards on seven plays to seal a 23-20 win on a Pappas 24-yard over-the-middle strike to Fred Blanks with 11.6 seconds left in the second round of the Mid-Carolina 2-A high school playoffs. Cedar Ridge will meet Pittsboro Northwood next Friday night.

Burnette chewed up 163 yards on the ground in the game on 20 carries with three touchdowns while Pappas passed for 117 yards and accounted for two touchdowns to lead the Red Wolves (5-1).
