C.B. Aycock put together one of its best performances of the season against East Wake on Monday evening. 

The Golden Falcons scored three goals in the first half and defeated East Wake 4-0 in Quad County 3A Conference play.

With the win, C.B. Aycock improved its record to 11-3-1 overall and 7-1 in conference play. Most importantly, the Golden Falcons kept themselves in the hunt for a conference title.

“We came out fast. We played a full 40 minutes in the first half and full 40 minutes in the second half,” C.B. Aycock head coach Dominick Albano said. “That’s really what it comes down to is when our effort level is high, we can be creative and dangerous.”

The Golden Falcons came flying out of the gates and scored two goals in one minute.

Axl Perry scored the Golden Falcons’ first goal in the 18th minute. The East Wake goalie went to pick up the ball, but he lost the ball, which enabled Perry to easily boot it into the open net.

Then in the 19th minute, Daron Boutte sprinted down the field and scored after firing that found its way into the top left corner of the net.

Austin Sawkiw then scored what might be the goal of the year in the 37th minute.

Off a cross from Boutte, Sawkiw leaped into the air and kicked the ball in midair. The East Wake goalie had no chance of stopping the ball, and the Golden Falcons took a 3-0 lead into halftime.

“Sawkiw said he’s thankful that he did karate when he was younger,” Albano said. “It was a very creative goal with a very good finish.

Peyton Blalock concluded the Golden Falcons’ scoring in the 46th minute.

C.B. Aycock continues Quad County 3A Conference play on Wednesday against South Johnston (2-11-1, 1-7).
