  • Lady Trojans earn share of county championship

    LELAND—For a while Friday night it looked like the high school girls’ basketball game between West Brunswick and North Brunswick would follow the same path as the first meeting between the county rivals.

    When the teams played in December, West Brunswick built a 15-point lead in the first half only to crumble in the second half as North Brunswick escaped with a 51-49 win.

    In last week’s regular-season finale, the Lady Trojans built a 15-point lead in the first half only to see North Brunswick rally and take the lead in the fourth quarter.

    The winner earned a home game as the No. 2 seed from the Waccamaw 1A/2A Conference while the loser will travel as a No. 3 seed.

    Barring any huge upsets in this week’s conference tournament at East Columbus, the Cougars secured a probable home date in the state playoffs, using an 18-5 second quarter advantage to post a 44-31 victory.

    “Even tough Whiteville beat us tonight, we won one more game in the conference than they did,” Isenberg said. “Three of the four 2A schools make the playoffs so we’re the No. 3 seed.”
