Serves Up Defensive Gems
BY JOHNNY CRAIG
The Waccamaw 2-A Conference certainly lived up to its billing as one
ol North Carolina's top defensive prep leagues last Friday in the opening
week of the high school football season.
Five W'C teains opened the season last Friday with four of those regis
West Brunsw ick kicked off its campaign w ith a 3X-0 pasting of North
Myrtle Beach. S.C.. in perhaps the Troians" Km season-opening defensive
Hie 38-point romp was the Trojans largest margin of victory in a sea
son opener in the school's gridiron history
"Have you ever seen a better defense this early in the season?" in
quired West Brunswick head coach Marshall Seay as he lei t the lield lol
lowing Friday's game.
Few could argue with the veteran Trojan coach who's team could be
headed to a similar WC championship season as that of 1988 when West
Brunswick went 10-2 overall and limited opponents to an average of 7.7
points per contest.
Fast Bladen posted similar results in a -!()-<) blanking of Clarkton.
The win was the Cougars' fifth consecutive season-opening victory
over the Blue Devils but was their most convincing triumph yet over
Fast Bladen also shutout the Blue Devils in their current five-game sc
ries 14-0 in 1989 and 13-0 in 1987.
North Brunswick also whipped Topsail with an impressive 26-0 blank
ing as the Scorpions limited the Pirates to minus- 10 yards in total offense.
Not only was the win the first for the Scorpions in 16 games, it was al
so their first shutout since a 20-0 victory over Dixon on Sept. 8, 1989. That
same season. North Brunswick picked up back-to-back shutouts with a 34
0 whitewash of Hallsboro the previous week.
The Scorpions will get a chance to duplicate that feat on Sept. 13 host
ing Dixon alter Friday's open date.
Whiteville was the fourth WC team to get a shutout in its opener
Not only did the Wolfpack blank the defending slate 2-A champion
Clinton, they also broke the longest winning streak in the 2-A classification
of 15 games.
The Dark Horses breezed through the 1990 season winning all 15
games enroute to the state title in Chapel Hill
Whiteville 's impressive win also answered a lot of questions as to how
good a team the Wolfpack will be this season. From the looks of the first
week's result, Whiteville w ill be the team to reckon with this fall.
Fairmont was the only losing league team in the opening week. Ihe
Golden Tornadoes dropped a 24-20 decision to Bladcnboro who has been
picked to Ik one of the weaker teams in the Southern 1-A ? 2-A
The early loss has to be disappointing for Fairmont fans, especially af
ter the school combined w ith Orrum during the new school consolidation in
Robeson County this year.
Pro Football Observations
It's hard to remember seeing a Washington Redskins lootball team as
dominate in a season opener as they were in Sunday's 45-0 thrashing of
From offense, to defense, to the special teams, the Redskins looked
like world beaters last weekend.
Sunday's first quarter, good tor a 21-0 Redskin lead, has to be
Washington's besi 15 minutes of football since the second quarter ol the
19X8 Super Bowi against Denver.
Ihe season -opening win had to be a relief to Redskin fans alter
Washington stumbled through the preseason losing three ol four games
played. Washington's 13 exhibition record was its worst since 1982 when
the Redskins went a listless 0-4 in the preseason.
Somewhere in the vast shuttling of players during training camp this
summer, head coach Joe Ciibbs has I (Hind the right combination (againj.
