Hatred won’t stop Cape Fear Rugby from another win


WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Hatred did not stop Cape Fear Rugby Club from adding another win to their season on Saturday! The team won 79 to 5 against the Fort Bragg Rugby team.

Monday, one of the members of the club discovered swastikas and pentagrams sprayed across the playing field. Board members were notified and wanted to tackle the matter quickly.

President Nate ‘Panda ‘ Nemec says the group is still weighing its options on cleaning but for now has spray painted over the hate symbols.

“We don’t stand for this kind of thing,” said Nemec. “We are an all-inclusive club. We have people of all shapes, sizes, races, ethnicities and beliefs.”

Nemec says there have been no leads for a suspect in the investigation. But, he says in his four years as president this has been the biggest display of vandalism.

This hate crime joins other recent events across Wilmington including a gay slurs to a  home on 11th street and racial slurs and profanity to the Bridge Church.
