Greene Central slips
past C.B. Aycock
SNOW HILL -- A second-half rally gave Greene Central a 44-41 non-conference victory over C.B. Aycock on Tuesday evening.
After leading 20-15 at the half, the Rams mounted a run to tie the contest at 28-28 at the end of the third quarter. Greene Central later pulled ahead in the fourth for the final margin.
"The girls worked hard the whole game," said C.B. Aycock coach Carrie Reynell. "We're forcing a lot of turnovers, however, we're still forcing quite a few passes and turning the ball over a little too much right now."
Bridgette Briggs led the Golden Falcons (0-3) with 13 points and four rebounds while Chantel Gaines added six points, nine rebounds and five steals.
