CHAPEL HILL– It’s the final week of high school gridiron action of the regular season. Postseason play begins next week. A few intriguing local showdowns certainly have the potential to light up your Friday night, but none more so than the Orange Panthers’ drive to perfection against Southern Durham.

On at 7 p.m., tune in to the undefeated Orange “Crush” Panthers as they attempt to put the finishing touches on the season with yet another victory. This week, Head Coach Pat Moser’s squad faces a formidable opponent in the form of the 8-2 Spartans of Southern Durham.

Last week, Orange pulled away from perennial powerhouse Cardinal Gibbons 49-28 and Southern Durham throttled Webb 56-7.

Will the Panthers be able to shut down the high-flying attack of the Spartans and cap off the undefeated year? You won’t want to miss history being made.

Tune in to pregame coverage from Durham with Paul Connell Friday at 6:30 p.m on 97. 9 FM, WCHL.

Exclusively on, you can catch the live game coverage of the showdown starting at 7 p.m.

But there is plenty of other area action including Cedar Ridge at Chapel Hill and Northwood traveling to face Cardinal Gibbons in Raleigh.

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.
