  • Scorpions rout Trask 37-0

    ROCKY MOUNT — North Brunswick beat Trask 37-0 in a non-conference football game Friday, Aug. 29, the Scorpions’ first victory of the season.

    Senior running back Deshawn Montgomery scored three touchdowns and junior quarterback Tiger Bryant scored two.

  • Shikeem Hill shines in Trojans’...

      MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. — Myrtle Beach (S.C.) High School beat West Brunswick 42-14 in a non-conference football game Thursday, Aug. 28.

    The game was part of a Labor Day weekend series between Carolinas teams and was played in a stadium that had a video scoreboard.

    Myrtle Beach, the defending state champion, blocked two punts in the first quarter in taking a 21-0 lead and led 28-0 at the half. Myrtle Beach, running a no-huddle spread offense, scored on a touchdown pass in the third quarter and a touchdown pass in the fourth quarter.

  • Trojans sweep Scorpions in...

    “They played a little bit tougher tonight than they have in the past,” coach Larry Salefsky said. “They controlled what was happening at the net. They passed well. We didn’t miss a lot of serves. They played a lot better.”

    The first game was tied 10-10 when Hayden Huffman held serve for three points, including an ace.

  • Reels are starting to sing again

    By Capt. Derek Treffinger

     The king mackerel fishing has finally started to improve this week. Good catches of 15- to 30-pound fish were coming from hard bottom areas and ledges in 60 to 75 feet of water. This can only mean one thing — the kings are on the move back inshore. Cooler air and water temperatures will trigger these fish to move near shore. Once the water temperatures reaches the ideal 72 to 76 degrees, there is almost a guaranteed bite somewhere between the beach and shark hole.

  • Questions, questions about how...

     Delane and Jessica Edwards from the Whiteville area fished with me Friday, Aug. 22. Delane Edwards started right out of the gate with the usual questions, “How long you been doing this, Captain?” “Do you think we will catch anything today, Captain?” “How old are you, Captain?” “Where you from, Captain?”

  • BCC wins volleyball opener

     BOLIVIA — The Brunswick Community College volleyball team beat the St. Andrews’ junior varsity 25-15, 26-24, 25-9 Sunday, Aug. 24, at the Dinah E. Gore Fitness & Aquatics Center gym.

    BCC has a new coach this season, Justin Hoskins, and the Dolphins played before an enthusiastic crowd of many fellow student-athletes.

    Morgan Sullivan served the Dolphins to a 10-4 lead in the first game and the Dolphins controlled the rest of the game for the victory.

  • Scorpions lose football opener...
  • Play It Forward

     Only in golf do we think we are touring pros.

    Here’s the deal. Most of the other sports we watch on TV are team sports, with highly trained, muscular professional players. Each sport has specialty players: catchers, pitchers, outfielders and infielders in baseball; linemen, receivers, quarterbacks, halfbacks, punters and kickers in football — and on and on in sports like soccer and lacrosse and field hockey.

    In golf, you are a one-person team playing against a golf course.

  • West Brunswick opens boys’...

     MAYSVILLE — Still adjusting to the loss of two key players from last year’s team, the West Brunswick High School boys’ soccer team lost its two opening games in the annual Battle at the Beach.

    West lost 3-0 to Havelock on Friday, Aug. 22, and lost 3-1 to Southwest Onslow on Saturday, Aug. 23.
