HOLLY RIDGE -- Princeton used a game-clinching 15-3 run and remained unbeaten in two outings after its 61-39 non-conference victory Monday evening at Dixon.

Karter Yutzy, a News-Argus All-Area selection last season, paced the Bulldogs' offense with a game-high 19 points. Josh Thompson added 10, while Brandon Pate chipped in nine.

The Bulldogs owned a 15-point lead after three quarters. Dixon, a member of the Class 1-A Coastal Plains Conference, trimmed the deficit to 46-36 before Princeton's final offensive surge.

Jordan Davis led Dixon with 19 points.

Princeton entertains Spring Creek next Monday in the Carolina 1-A Conference opener for both teams. The junior varsity boys tip off the triple-header at 4:30 p.m.

Waters leads Rams

past Aycock ... again

SNOW HILL -- Teddie Waters pumped in a game-high 24 points as unbeaten Greene Central eased past Charles B. Aycock 57-49 in non-conference action Monday evening.

The Rams captured their third victory overall and swept the regular-season series against the Golden Falcons, who exited 1-2.

"We've improved a lot better over that first time we played them," second-year Aycock coach David West said. "Teddie Waters? I'd pay to see him go against (North Lenoir's) Justin Dunn this year. That's going to be an awesome game."

Johnathan Gage complemented Waters' effort with 12 points and seven rebounds.

Rob Phillips and Santavin Poole each had 12 for Aycock.

The Golden Falcons led for 3 1/2 quarters until the Rams forced some fouls and received trips to the free throw line. Although Greene Central didn't shoot well (5-of-13) in the final quarter, it managed to hit enough free throws keep Aycock in check.

Officials called 46 total fouls which led to a combined 50 free throw attempts.

Greene Central entertains Wilson Fike, of the Big Eight 3-A North on Wednesday. Aycock opens its Eastern Carolina 3-A Conference schedule next Tuesday at county rival Goldsboro.

C.B. Aycock 16 13 10 10 -- 49

Greene Central 15 11 8 23 -- 57

C.B. AYCOCK (1-2)

Michael Gurganus 3, Brandon Hobbs 6, Rob Phillips 12, Montrel Sims 4, Lamada Willilams 3, Bryan Moore 9, Santavin Poole 12.


Gerry Kesselbach 5, Kelsey Baker 2, Kenny Smith 3, Teddie Waters 24, Dreyan Willis 7, Johnathan Gage 12, Charles Gamble 4.

Wayne Christian continues play next Tuesday at Trinity Christian of Greenville.

Middle schools

Norwayne 24, Spring Creek 22 -- Tyheim Pitt led the Cobras with 11 points, while J.J. Woodard contributed seven. Braddock Gross paced the Gators with six points. Norwayne (2-0) is the guest of Greenwood next Monday.

Goldsboro 44, Mount Olive 23 -- Tim Holmes emerged the Cougars' top scorer with 16 points, while Keovonta McDuffie added 12. Goldsboro remained unbeaten in two outings.

Frink 46, Woodington 30 -- Marquez Powell and Lynn Jones tallied eight points apiece for the Cavaliers, who had 12 players to score in the Lenoir-Greene Conference contest. Scott Novicki collected 10 points for Woodington. Frink (1-2) plays host to St. Peter's next Monday afternoon.
