WILMINGTON,NC (WWAY) -- The players seem to like the idea of a rematch, but the head coaches don't. The North Carolina High School Athletic Association recently went to the pod system for the state playoffs in order to cut down on travel. That's the main reason New Hanover will be hosting Hoggard this coming Friday in the state playoffs. The rematch comes exactly one week after New Hanover beat Hoggard 13-7 at Legion. That victory was the first for New Hanover over Hoggard in football since 1995.
