  • North Brunswick earns first win...

     BOILING SPRING LAKES - North Brunswick’s varsity football team could have rolled over several weeks ago as lopsided losses and injuries have mounted for head coach Darren Willis’ young team.

    Instead, the Scorpions battled through all kinds of adversity and emerged victorious in a rivalry game on Friday, Oct. 13, at Jack Campbell Stadium against South Brunswick.

    The Cougars entered the game with a 3-4 record and 2-1 ledger in conference play, coming into the contest on the heels of two consecutive league victories.

  • Wilmington crew wins 2017 Fall...

     The 2017 Yellowfin/Yamaha Fall Brawl King Classic had nearly 300 boats enter the competition, but only one reeled in the winning king mackerel.

    Austin Eubank of Wilmington, earned a first-place finish in the annual event by snagging a 45.60-pound king mackerel aboard “Clearly Hooked.” The team won the heaviest fish competition by 1.60 pounds over Grady Gaston Hughes.

    The third-place finisher was Chris Carroll of Forest, Va., who reeled in a 43.05-pound king.

  • A high school football game to...

     If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a billion times. There’s just something special about high school athletics.

    Exhibit A? Last Friday night’s high school football game between the winless North Brunswick Scorpions and much improved South Brunswick Cougars at Jack Campbell Stadium in Boiling Spring Lakes.

    I wasn’t quite sure what to make of the game before it was played. South dominated North in two quarters in the BB&T Jamboree three months ago, but teams are much different (and better) than they were at that stage.

     West Brunswick's Nashawn Price hauled in a 33-yard touchdown reception against Hoggard during a high school football game Oct. 6. Price earned North Carolina Farm Bureau's Player of the Week award for his effort.

  • New Hanover rides explosive...

     West Brunswick played one of its best offensive games of the season against New Hanover on Oct. 13 at Legion Stadium in Wilmington.

    The Wildcats (8-0, 4-0) struggled to contain the Trojans’ rushing attack for much of the night, but New Hanover’s offense cured those ills in a big way in a 31-point victory.

    New Hanover quarterback Blake Walston threw for 311 yards on just 10 completions and five touchdown strikes to lead the undefeated Wildcats to a 52-21 win over West (2-6, 2-2).

     The South Brunswick and West Brunswick women’s golf teams competed in a conference match Oct. 3 at Carolina National Golf Club in Bolivia.

    Laney, for the fifth time in as many matches, captured first place.

    Players finished 18 holes on the 4,548-yard, par 72 track.

  • Trojans drop final three regular...

     The West Brunswick High School varsity volleyball team concluded its regular season with three consecutive losses as it dropped a pair of conference games and a non-league game at South Columbus last week.

    Laney defeated the Trojans in a conference game Oct. 12 in Wilmington. The Buccaneers claimed a victory over West Brunswick in its regular season finale.

    West Brunswick traveled to Wilmington on Oct. 10 for a league game against Ashley, which finished the regular season atop the Mideastern 3A/4A Conference standings.

  • Get in on the incredible fall...

     Roughly two weeks ago, the fall fishing officially fired off. The king mackerel were slowly starting to creep toward the beach. The gag grouper were starting to show up in the 65-to 80-foot range and the big fall wahoo are being caught along the edge of the gulf stream. This action was great for the end of September. Little did we know how much better the fishing would get in the beginning of October and the weeks to follow.
