* ERWIN -- Charles B. Aycock triumphed in five of eight contested matches, and clinched a share of the Eastern Carolina 3-A Conference regular-season title with a 54-21 rout of Triton.

"One team goal down, two to go," said Golden Falcons head coach Marc Peck.

Nick Jones, Jaquan Walker, Khaleil Owens, Nick Simmons and heavyweight Jarrod James each defeated their respective opponent, either by decision or by pin. Walker filled in for an injured Aaron Pate at 140 pounds.

"It was great to see Jaquan notch his first varsity win," said Peck.

The Golden Falcons' Jordan Bailey, David Romo, Daniel Romo, Preston Tucker and Zeb Darden each drew a forfeit.

Aycock (21-10 overall, 4-0 ECC) continues action Friday at D.H. Conley.

* Archrivals Eastern Wayne and Southern Wayne battled to a 4-4 draw in contested matches, but the Warriors earned more forfeit points in their 47-24, Eastern Carolina 3-A Conference victory.

The Saints (2-11) exited 1-2 in the league.

"(The) same as last Friday, it was good to see a team win even though we are still not back at full strength," said Eastern Wayne head coach Jonathan Jones. "The most exciting thing about this year is that we have so many young wrestlers and are still doing well. The other thing is that we only gave up two pins, an improvement, of course, over some of our previous matches."

Eastern Wayne got victories from Brice Heller, Warren Kirkwood, Tyshawn Koonce, Brandon Gray, Nolan Kirkwood, Austin Helm, Dante Jackson and heavyweight Blake Terrell.

Bumbi Le, Jamison Dove, Ethan Brogden and Devin Lee each emerged victorious for the Saints. Southern Wayne also won the 189-pound match.
