Any thoughts that the Whiteville Wolfpack were looking ahead to a November 3 game with South Columbus were quashed as the Wolfpack scored on all six first half possessions to lead St. Pauls 42-7 at halftime. A St. Pauls score after an onside kick to start the second half pulled the Bulldogs to within 42-13.  Whiteville responded with two more scores, upping the lead to 55-13 and instituting the “running clock” midway the fourth quarter. Phillip Powell picked off a St. Pauls pass on the Whiteville two-yard line and returned it 98 yards on the game’s final play for a 61-13 victory. Whiteville is 9-1 overall and 7-1 in the TRC.

The Whiteville baseball team received its 2017 State Championship rings at halftime.

South Columbus used a punishing ground game and a stingy defense to shut out West Bladen 42-0. The Stallions out rushed the Knights 442 to 93. South is now 10-0 and 8-0 in conference action.

In other action involving Columbus County teams, Fairmont defeated East Columbus 24-12 and Red Springs topped West Columbus 41-0. East Columbus will host West Columbus next Friday with each school looking for its first win of the season. During the East Columbus halftime Homecoming activities, Tia Campbell and Kenji Bowen were crowned Queen and King.
