Last week, Bladen County bested Columbus County in football and for our Team of the Week. This week, the Columbus County schools came back strong. That's where we find our 5th Quarter Team of the Week for Week 5.
You know the saying, offense scores points but defense wins championships. This was especially true last week in high school football where the defensive performance was amazing from several players. Only three were nominated for the Player of the Week and only one brought fans to their feet in Columbus County.
The running backs last week really showed their muscles and helped carry their teams to victory. But one running back accounted for more than half of his teams total offense, which makes him our 5th Quarter Player of the Week.
