     Kasin Medford did everything in his power to deliver West Brunswick its first varsity football victory of the 2017 season.

    In the end, not even a career night from the senior running back was enough as the Wolfpack scored on a two-point conversion with less than four minutes left in the game and held on for a 29-28 victory Friday, Aug. 25, at Legion Stadium in Whiteville.

    Medford set career highs in rush attempts (24), rushing yards (209) and touchdowns (three) in the loss.

     BOILING SPRING LAKES – Despite an impressive performance on the offensive side of the ball, South Brunswick High School’s varsity football is still searching for its first win following a 39-36 defeat Friday, Aug. 25, at the hands of the West Bladen Knights.

    The Cougars (0-2) reeled off 21 straight points during a first-half onslaught in which South seized control of the game, but the Knights outscored the host team 32-15 in the game’s final 30 minutes.
