  • West completes sweep of county...

    The West Brunswick girls’ soccer team completed a sweep of county teams by beating North Brunswick 4-0 Monday at West.

    Two West goals were disallowed because of offsides. The Lady Trojans improved to 8-8 for the year.

    West scored twice in the first half, the first goal eight minutes into the game on a pass from junior forward Taylor Ambrose to senior forward Mariah Evans. Her kick in the box went through the legs of the North goalkeeper.

  • Memory, Gause homer as West...

    JACKSONVILLE—Two-run home runs by Alex Memory and Jay Gause scored all of West Brunswick’s runs in a 4-0 victory Friday over White Oak in a Mideastern Conference baseball game.

    The low-scoring game was surprising, considering the Trojans had beaten the Vikings 17-0 last month.

    The victory improved West’s record to 7-1 in the conference, 16-3 overall, and keeps it in the running for the MEC title. West’s one MEC loss is to Laney, and the two teams have a rematch on Senior Night April 30 at West.

    BOILING SPRING LAKES—The South Brunswick girls’ soccer team remained unbeaten in the Waccamaw Conference by beating Pender 6-0 April 22.

    The Cougars beat the Patriots 8-0 April 8, but in the first half of the rematch Pender put more pressure on the South defense and goalkeeper Elizabeth Butler, who made several saves.

    South finally scored 11 minutes into the game on a 20-yard shot by junior Kayla Carmichael. Just before the half ended, junior Ashley Briggs scored. Junior Ann Burton had the assist.

  • West beats South, clinches...
  • Bull's eye: Skirmishers use...

    STATESVILLE—Norman Horne, a member of the Sons of Confederate Veterans, often wondered what it was like to use Civil War weapons. A television program a few years ago rekindled that interest.

    “They were having cannon competition,” he said. “I thought, ‘Well, that looks like it might be fun.’”

    Two years ago, he and Joe Newman, both Brunswick County residents, went as spectators to the North-South Skirmish Association national matches, near Winchester, Va.

  • West Brunswick clinches county...

    BOILING SPRING LAKES—The West Brunswick High School girls soccer team clinched its first county championship by beating South Brunswick 3-2 Monday.

    The victory gave West a 3-0 record against county teams, with just one more game left on Monday against North Brunswick.

    West played without starting freshman midfielder Julianna Zio, who was a key player in West’s first victory over the Cougars. (She was sick.)

  • Fulfords finish 1-2 in Mini-...

    Racing Saturday at Myrtle Beach Speedway saw the return of the Super Trucks for the second time in three weeks and the third week of racing for the Limited Late Models, Street Stocks and Mini-Stocks.

    The 15-lap Street Stock race was a three-car battle among Tommy Poole, Davey Hatchell and Dean Cumbee. Cumbee ended up passing two-time defending champion Poole with two laps to go to take his first victory of the 2009 season.

    In the 25-lap limited Late Model feature, Michael Elliot led start to finish virtually untested, finishing ahead of Randall Roberts.

  • An excellent start to the spring...

    Fishing has been good inshore depending upon the weather. Storms combined with an often-howling wind have kept anglers inside at times, but when they have gotten out they have caught fish. There is good news from all areas—the piers, the surf and the backwaters.

    The biggest news in the early pier fishing has been the good catches of sea mullet. These tasty panfish, also known as whiting, have been coming over the rails in sporadic runs and in good size. Sea mullet hit cut shrimp and other baits fished on the bottom.
