PIKEVILLE -- Charles B. Aycock's Adam Williams struck out eight batters against two walks in four innings of work in his final outing as a Golden Falcon -- helping Aycock to an 11-3 win at home against Washington.

The game was the season finale for both, Class 3-A Eastern Carolina Conference teams.

Williams, one of seven CBA seniors, yielded one hit and no runs.

"He threw extremely well last night, and I was so glad to see that," Aycock coach Charles Davis said. "This senior group this year has been a joy to coach. They didn't play a whole lot, but didn't whine and complain. They sat in the dugout and pulled for the young players.

"Their leadership is going to be missed."

Seniors Travis Bartlett (3-5), Drew McGowan (2-4), Greg Tipton (2-4), Alex Raper (1-3) and Greg Davis (1-5) paced the Falcons at the plate.

Raper came on to toss the final three innings, yielding four hits and three runs. He and Williams combined for 15 strikeouts.

The Golden Falcons (16-8 overall) finished at 11-5 in the Class 3-A Eastern Carolina Conference.
