After a tough loss to Hunt last week, C.B. Aycock had a big bounce-back performance against Southern Wayne.

The Golden Falcons seized control from the opening tip and flew over country rival Southern Wayne 74-41 on Tuesday evening.

“We came out strong, and that’s really what I was looking for,” C.B. Aycock head coach A.J. Mundle said. “We put together a full game. We came out with our foot on the gas, and we didn’t let off.”

Down 5-2, the Golden Falcon’s Ethan Brock buried a three-pointer that sparked a 20-5 run, and C.B. Aycock had a 22-10 lead at the end of the first quarter.

The Golden Falcons stayed hot in the second quarter, with Gamere Culver knocking down three three-pointers.

“Anytime somebody can come in and shoot like that. I’m all for it,” Mundle said about Culver. “He can shoot, but he can do some other things as well.”

Southern Wayne had no answers, and C.B. Aycock went into halftime with a 46-17 advantage.

The third quarter was more of the same, with C.B. Aycock controlling the game. J.D. Dunn’s basket late in the third quarter made it 61-21, which started the running clock.

“Overall, we played a pretty good game,” Mundle said. “We just have to go back to the drawing board and not get complacent.”
