The old adage, “it's not how you start, it's how you finish” held true Friday night. Williamsport had a paltry first half but a solid second half to come from behind and beat Brunswick 41-33 behind Sterling Christy's 19 points. The Wildcats' first half was, for lack of a better word, awful. They trailed by 10 not even three minutes into the game. They didn't register a single point until the 4:37 mark of the first quarter and their first field goal didn't come until there were 59 seconds left in the frame.

One big inning was all North Hagerstown’s softball team needed to stay hot as the playoffs draw near. The Hubs ripped six hits and scored all four of their runs in the bottom of the fourth inning, and held on for a 4-3 victory over Brunswick in MVAL Antietam action Friday. North (10-6, 9-4) has won eight of its last nine games — the lone loss a 3-2 nail-biter to Antietam champion Smithsburg. “That’s been the story of our season, one or two big innings that have put us ahead of teams to win ballgames,” Hubs coach Amanda Fleming said.

Brunswick girls basketball coach Bill Martin is tough to please. Sure, he's happy that the Railroaders notched a 50-33 win over South Hagerstown on Tuesday, but he wasn't all that cheery about how No. 4 Brunswick came about claiming the Monocacy Valley Athletic League win. "That was the worst that we have played since I have been coaching; it is that plain and simple," Martin said. "We woke up a little bit ... just enough. We worked all week planning to come up here and play hard.

Instead, Brunswick took advantage of 11 walks and four Rising Sun errors. Ebberts led off the game with a solo blast and added a two-run shot in the second inning.

Brunswick overcame a slow start to topple Clear Spring 62-44 in an MVAL Antietam boys basketball game Monday night. The Railroaders outscored the Blazers 46-24 in the second half, after trailing 20-16 at halftime. Clear Spring ran into an existing problem in the second half with sloppy play and couldn't match Brunswick's hustle. “It was a carbon copy of our game against North Carroll (a 71-57 loss last week),” Clear Spring coach Ryan Grabill said. “We didn't guard anyone.

A Brunswick couple faces scores of new animal-cruelty charges stemming from the discovery of nearly 100 dogs inside their home. Frederick County Animal Control Director Harold Domer said Tuesday that Ivan and Patsy Issette are charged with 97 counts each of failing to provide proper care for the animals and one count each of inflicting unnecessary pain and suffering. He says the new charges replace the 17 offenses with which they were charged in May. Domer says 33 of the 95 dogs removed from the house had to be destroyed.

An alert was lifted Wednesday for 15 residents in southern Washington County who have been boiling their water since Aug. 23, when a magnitude 5.9 earthquake damaged Brunswick's water system,  city officials said. City Administrator Rick Weldon said the earthquake stirred up settled solids and sediment deep in the aquifer that serves Yourtee Springs. "Initially, we shut down the spring, which normally serves Weverton, New Addition and the west end of the City of Brunswick," Weldon said in an email.

A few weeks ago, my wife and I found ourselves driving down through the beautiful foliage of Harpers Ferry road as we headed to Brunswick days.  This is the same road that my Father in law Leon travelled for over thirty years when he worked on the Baltimore and Ohio railroad. As we enjoyed the scenery, we continued our trip by Sandy Hook where all the houses are built on one side of the street, and made our way through the little town of Knoxville and by the location where the old Acme store used to be. Times have changed a lot since my youth and the history of Brunswick goes back a lot further than I once realized.
