BUNN -- Charles B. Aycock's season-opening 28-0 loss at Bunn could have been a lot worse.

The Wildcats had three touchdowns called back on penalties and led just 7-0 before scoring 21 points over the final 12:48 of the ballgame.

Bunn turned an Aycock (0-1) fumble into a score in the first quarter. The Wildcats added on to their advantage with Jakai Alston's 46-yard scamper late in the third quarter.

"I hate to lose 28-0, but I'm pleasantly optimistic with what I saw," Golden Falcons head coach Randy Pinkowski said. "To go against a Bunn team that's ranked in the state and to go into the fourth quarter only down 14-0 and still be in the ballgame is big. If our defense continues to play as well as it did and our offense begins to find its rythym we'll be OK."

Bunn quarterback Levon Stanley hooked up with Robert Preston for a 57-yard touchdown pass not two minutes into the final quarter. The Wildcats finished off the Golden Falcons with Richard Dunston's 5-yard run.

Aycock mustered just 66 yards of offense and eight first downs.

The Golden Falcons host Clayton at 7:30 p.m. next Friday.
