  • Rescheduled Fall Brawl this...

    October is a month any fisherman enjoys. Temperatures cool, baitfish begin their annual migrations and it seems as if from the beach to the Gulf Stream fish are willing to bite. For some, October, is all about pumpkin picking and Friday night football games, yet to any angler along North Carolina’s coast, it means it’s time to go fishing.

    LELAND — The North Brunswick Scorpions extended their winning streak to five games by defeating the Dixon Bulldogs 21-6 in an important East Central 2A Conference game on Friday, Oct. 21.

    North is 4-0 in the conference, 7-2 overall. North has two ECC games left: Friday, Oct. 28, in Jacksonville against Northside (2-1 in the ECC) and Nov. 4 at East Duplin (3-0 in the ECC). These two games will determine the 2A championship and playoff seedings.

  • Wrenching loss for Trojans to...

    WILMINGTON — Hoggard beat West Brunswick 34-26 Friday, Oct. 21, and prevented the Trojans from clinching the Mideastern 3A/4A Conference football title.

    West can clinch at least a share of the title if it beats Laney on Friday, Oct. 28, in Shallotte in the final game of the conference season.

    For West coach Kelly Williamson, his thoughts after the game were not about championships but about senior center Alex Mercer, who suffered a broken left leg with 3 minutes, 22 seconds left in the game.

  • Fish continue to bite after...

    Hurricane Matthew ripped through our county a couple weeks ago and with it came record-setting flood waters to inland areas and destruction to properties along the beach. Aside from the horrific damage Matthew caused, folks who suffered minor damage or none at all began to wonder how the storm would affect the fishing. Before the storm, fishing was in full swing with fish biting from the surf to the Gulf Stream. However, once Matthew made its presence upon the Carolina coast, our fantastic fall fishery came to a screeching halt.
