CHAPEL HILL– Believe it or not, week eleven of high school gridiron action is upon us. And it will feature some intriguing local showdowns that will certainly light up your Friday night.

On 97.9 FM WCHL and at 7 p.m., tune in to the undefeated Orange “Crush” Panthers as they continue their drive toward perfection. This week, Head Coach Pat Moser’s squad welcomes a formidable opponent in the form of the 7-2 Crusaders of Cardinal Gibbons.

Last week, Orange throttled struggling Webb 56-7 and Cardinal Gibbons survived improving Chapel Hill 47-36.

Will the Panthers be able to shut down the Crusader attack and move to 10-0 on the year? You won’t want to miss this one.

Tune in to pregame and live game coverage from Orange High School with Paul Connell Friday at 6:30 p.m.

Exclusively on, you can catch the 7-2 Northwood Chargers as they look to keep things rolling home against the Chapel Hill Tigers. Chapel Hill has proven to be a tough out in their past two games against powerhouses Orange and Cardinal Gibbons.

What do the Tigers have left for Coach Bill Hall’s high-flying Chargers?

Tune in to pregame coverage and live game play-by-play streaming on our website, Jeff Hamlin will have the call from Pittsboro.

And don’t forget, each Friday at 6 p.m., WCHL’s lively duo of Matt Oakes and Matt Paul will be breaking down all the big games, sitting down with the head coaches of many of your favorite teams, releasing WCHL/Chapelboro’s Super Six rankings, making some bold predictions, and unveiling The Grid Great of the Week.
