Northwood’s girls basketball team opened the first round of the 3A state playoffs with a convincing 69-42 win over South Johnston. The victory assures the Lady Chargers a second round matchup with the Union Pines Vikings, a team that Northwood defeated earlier in the season at the Lee County Christmas tournament. Unfortunately Union Pines is ranked one seed higher than Northwood so the Vikings will host the game in Cameron, NC and will most likely be seeking revenge from their Christmas tournament loss. The game is scheduled for Monday evening at 7:00.
