West Brunswick improved to 3-1 on the season, while Mullins fell to 1-3 The Trojans will carry a two game winning streak into their Wac camaw Conference opener Friday at South Columbus. "Wc gave up a ample big plays in the first half, but the defense played much better in the second half." West Brunswick head coach Yogi Hickman said after the game The Mullins offense racked up 22(1 yards in the first half ? most of it coming on two big plays ? but the Auctioneers were held to 86 yards in the final two quarters "I thought we played good offen sively Wc scored 32 points against a pretty good football team." Hickman said after his troops netted 261 total yards against the 3A Auctioneers West Brunswick opened the scor ing midway through the first quarter atter Gore, a sophomore iineman, recovcicu a fumble ai ihc Auc tioneers' 45-yard line. Three plays later, Johnson ran a keeper around the right side of the line for a touchdown. The play cov ered 43 yards, and Derek Frink's ex tra point gave the Trojans a 7-0 lead. Mullins responded immediately with a big play of its own. Junior running back Telly Friday took a pitch around the left end, broke two tackles and raced 75 yards for a TD. The kick failed, and Mullins trailed 7-6. West Brunswick answered with a seven-play. 76-yard scoring drive. Senior fullback James Morgan broke loose for a 59-yard run on the third play, and Johnson finished it off with a 1-yard dive on fourth-and goal. Mullins blocked Frink's extra point attempt, and West Brunswick led 13-6 with 2.34 left in the first quarter. The Auctioneers' biggest play of the game came with just under 10 minutes remaining in the second pe riod. A halfback pass from John Johnson to Kendnck Smith went foi 88 yards. Three plays later, quarterback Matt Ham tossed a 4-yaiu touch down pass to Tyrone Edge. I lam ran for the two-point conversion, and Mullins led 14-13 with 7:45 left in the half After fumbling deep in Mullins territory on their first possession of the second half, the Trojans regained the lead for good with 37 seconds remaining in the third quarter Johnson's 48-yard punt return gave West Brunswick a first-and goal at the 7-yard line Morgan, who led the Trojans with 84 rushing yards, scored three plays later on a 4-yard run Frink's kick gave West a 20-14 lead. Wesi Brunswick scored again jusi 2 minutes, 32 seconds, later after an other big defensive play. Kelly Wooten caused a fumble and Lance recovered at the Aucs' 40-yard line. On first down at the 24, Johnson dropped back to pass and was flushed out of the pocket. He rolled right and flickcd a 24-yard touch down pass to Frink just before run ning out of bounds. "That play right there was as good as I've ever seen," Hickman said later of Johnson's pass. "That was just a great athletic play. He's such a threat He puts so much pres sure on the defense." West Brunswick's defense closed out the scoring 53 seconds later. Mullins quarterback John Johnson rolled right and attempted a screen pass back to his left. Green, the Trojans' junior middle linebacker, read the play perfectly. He caught the pass in stride and rumbled 35 yards to the end zone. Despite the 18-point win, Hick man said West Brunswick's biggest problem as a team has been lack of emotion. "We're not playing with great emotion. It's real workmanlike," he said. "We've go! ?o get a lot more emotional We've been flat." THE YARDSTICK W. Brunswick Mullins 8 First Downs 9 35-192 Rushing 30-202 8-12-69 Passing 3-9-104 1-1 Fumbles-Lost 3-2 0 Ints.

Ciahc Cooper scored three goals as the Trojans raced out to a 5-0 lead and held off a late rally by South Brunswick last Thursday at Smith ville Township Park With the victor/. West Brunswick extended its unbeaten streak in county matches to IK. Coach Teak Hemphill's Trojans arc 3-0 in the county this season and 5-2 overall. For a while last Thursday, South Brunswick gave the two-time de fending county champs all they could handle The rivals battled to a scoreless tie through the first 30 minutes before West took command. Cooper opened the scoring at the 33-minute mark After receiving a pass from Chris Payne right of the goal. Cooper chipped the ball just inside the far post for a I -0 lead. The Payne-to-Cooper combina tion struck again in the final minute of the half. 'I "he seniors worked a give-and-go to perfection and Cooper found the lower right corner of the net from 10 yards out. West Brunswick bumped its lead to 3-0 early in the second half on a Cameron Kinlaw header. Swedish exchange student Jenny Wahlander set up the goal with a corner kick. Cooper completed his hat trick 15 minutes into the second half when he stole the ball 25 yards from the South Brunswick goal and fired it into the lower right comer.

South Brunswick Coach Ed Mc Kinnon said the first 20 minutes was the best the Cougars have played this season, and he was pleased with the way his team came back at the end. "The first 20 minutes we played real well. Wc were aggressive. ! don't know if we got tired, but they controlled the second 20 minutes," McKinnon said. "After they got that first goal, our heads went down." Hemphill said West Brunswick continued a. recent trend by playing a "lousy" first half. "We started off sluggish again, and if we keep doing that we're go ing to get beaten," he said. "The second half we came out more fired up. It was better passing by the whole team. As long as we sta ff photo tr doug (tv/tm GABE COOPER scored three goals as West Brunswick beat South Brunswick 5-3 last Thursday in Southport. pass like we did in the second halt there's not a team we can't compete with," Hemphill said. "Chris and Gabe were awesome passing it back and forth. That's what I'm looking for" Hemphill said the team "fell apart" at the end of the game. "I had some guys in who 1 want to get ex perience. They're learning. I try to get as many guys in there as I can just for experience." Hemphill praised the Cougars. "I give credit to them. They've had three coaches in three years and they're sticking together." Last Tuesday, West Brunswick got two goals apiece from Andy Russ and Karagiannis in a 7-1 victo ry over visiting North Brunswick. Kinlaw, Payne and Cooper had one goal apiece for the Trojans, who have outscored the Scorpions 12-1 in two matches this year. Payne had three assists and Kinlaw and Karagiannis had two each.
