The South Brunswick Cougars pulled off the big upset on the road Friday night when they stormed the ship at Topsail and came away with a 14-3 victory over the Pirates. A win worthy enough to make this team the Team of the Week.
This week our Team of the Week did something unprecendented by the teams we honor. The Pender Patriots won two games last week, 25-16 over Union and 58-0 over Lejeune, making them our seventh Team of the Week.
The first full week of conference games saw mostly blowouts, but there were a few close games. The cream of the crop rose to the top, including one of our teams who saw their contest get decided by one score.
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.
