Tyler Floyd scored a goal midway through the first half  and  Ethan Bass kicked in a goal in the opening moments of the second half Monday as the Whiteville High soccer team tripped visiting West Bladen in a Three Rivers Conference match at the WHS field. Matthew Smith and Cirilo Gonzalez were credited with assists on the WHS goals. Will Hinson and Brooks Baldwin alternated at the goalie position in helping gain the shut-out. The win assured the Wolfpack of a runner-up finish in the  Three Rivers Conference race, finishing behind unbeaten East Bladen.

West Columbus lost to St. Pauls 4-2 in overtime. The loss dashes the Vikings’ hopes of obtaining the Three Rivers automatic playoff berth.
