After a tough 1-0 loss against D.H. Conley on Monday, C.B. Aycock bounced back in a big way against South Lenoir on Wednesday.
The Golden Falcons did not just crack the lid on their offense. They tore it right off.
Zach Naughton scored three goals and handed out two assists in C.B. Aycock’s 6-0 win over South Lenoir.
“Overall, I think we played well,” C.B. Aycock head coach Dominick Albano said. “We moved the ball pretty well, and moving the ball is a big key for us this season.
“Could we have played a little bit better? I think so because this isn’t our peak yet, but overall a good effort from the boys. They always fought and never quit.”
The Golden Falcons did not waste any time in scoring their goals.
In the sixth minute, off Adam Cook’s corner kick, Colby Thompson headed the ball into the goal to give C.B. Aycock an early 1-0 lead.

C.B. Aycock’s lead grew to 3-0 in the 36th minute when Naughton scored his second goal off John McIver’s assist. McIver scored a goal in the 50th minute to put C.B. Aycock 4-0.
“The D.H. Conley game was a tough result, and I definitely think we should’ve gotten one point out of that game, so this was a big response to come out and keep the ball like we did in this game,” Albano said.
The margin swelled to 5-0 when off another assist from McIver, Naughton scored his third goal.
Gaston Zarate’s goal in the 69th minute capped the Golden Falcon’s scoring.
C.B. Aycock (2-2-1 overall) visits Rosewood (3-0-1) on Tuesday.
